Stamp Review Crew: Flower Shop

Flower Shop bannerWelcome to this edition of the Stamp Review Crew’s twice-monthly blog hop.  We gather on the first and third Monday of each month to show off one stamp set — this time it’s Flower Shop (see page 105 of the Stampin’ Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog).  Although I’m the first blog in this hop this time, it’s a loop of 16 blogs — you can see the list of participants by clicking the banner above.  You may have arrived here from Paper Conversation, where you enjoyed the creativity of my friend Mickey Roberts.

I have used this set a lot for watercoloring, so here I chose a completely different direction with a coppery interpretation of a layout I used last week.  I scraped the edge of the top panel vertically against the VersaMark pad, then embossed it with more Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder for a subtle glimmer.  Some loops of Copper Metallic Thread (how I love thee!) add some shimmer to the bottom half of the card, which could certainly hold a sentiment banner.  The ribbon?  Not copper, alas, but the very beautiful Tip Top Taupe 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon.  That ribbon is a must-have in every color!  (You can see a complete list of ingredients if you scroll past the previous/next buttons, below.)

    Ooo.. I love the copper and black! What a super technique to add the Versamark on the edge of the card like that. I will have to try that!
