Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Chalk Talk Edition! I love the way this hop gives me occasion to get out sets that may have been on the "back burner" for awhile and revv them up again. Once I come up with my ideas, it just gets better and better. I'm amazed at the variety and fun projects I find on the hop from my talented fellow designers.
You should have just come from Heidi Baks blog. I am loving her projects this week and can't wait to see her pretty work with this set.
I've been posting work with the Happy Watercolor set all week, and had several leftover elements on my craft table when I sat down to make this project. Combining both sets was easy.
This is a birthday card for someone special who loves flowers and blue. I used the Wonderful Watercolor Designer Series Paper in two ways here. I stamped the flower image directly on the patterned paper. I also tucked the paper behind vellum. This is a trick that softens and slightly mutes the pattern.
That makes the gold pop! I embossed a button to match.
For my second project I finally made one of these mini 4 oz. lidded coffee cups and filled it with chocolate Kisses. I know I'm going to have fun giving these cute little gifts away! The chocolate stirrer is filled with creme. Yum!
I used the Banner Punch (available January 28) to form snippets of designer paper around the sentiment. This was so easy and fun to make!
Next on the hop is the lovely project of Adriana Benitez. Happy hopping!
