It’s that time again! Time for the Stamp ‘N Hop Blog Hop! March’s theme is Second Chance Sale-A-Bration! We are nearing on the end of the amazing Sale-A-Bration promotion where you can earn FREE products just for shopping! Be sure to check out all the amazing products available while this promotion lasts! Today I’m featuring the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration set, one of my all-time favorites!
This blog post will be quite different from my normal posts, as I do not have a coordinating video link for you. I’ve fallen ill recently and have been focusing on recovery, so I wasn’t able to get a video done for you. However, I was able to come up with this fun, crumply card! Do you like the color and crush technique? It’s when you stamp your image, color in if necessary, and then CRUMPLE it up! It gives a very vintage look that I think is so much fun!
I cut up a variety of neutral cardstock along with some beautiful 2017-2019 In Color cardstock and adhered it to a Crumb Cake cardbase. I then embossed it all with the Hexagons Dynamic TIEF. Add some layers, ribbons, and pearls and you have a fun, layered card! Oh, and don’t forget the CRUMPLING!
I used the new Stampin’ Blends in Rich Razzleberry Light & Dark to color in the lavender bunch and then used the Color Lifter to blend out the Light & Dark shades of Old Olive on the leaves. I really love these markers! They have made coloring so much more fun!
