Hello Kre8tors, I’m Melissa from Melissa’s Kre8tions and welcome to another Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m really excited about this one because it’s my birthday! How fun that my birthday falls on hop day! To celebrate, our theme is birthdays! So take a moment to enjoy your favorite beverage and hop around to all of the talented demonstrators from around the globe participating in today’s hop!
My card today features my favorite stamp set, Petal Palette! I’ve also thrown in the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits dies, and the new Buffalo Check background stamp. I used the Round Robin technique on my Stamparatus to stamp my circle (or square) of flowers. Love this technique! It’s just another great way to use this amazing stamping tool!
I used Mint Macaron for my card base and the ink on the buffalo check background and Blackberry Bliss as my card mat and ink on my focal image and sentiment. I love this layout design, as it is perfect to use with nearly any stamp set!
When using the Stamparatus to do the round robin technique, you can get very different results depending on the size of your stamp, and where you place it in your template. You can see in the first photo it looks slightly more rounded, and in the second photo it is more square and more spread out. See my video below to find out how I created my focal image on the Stamparatus!
I hope you enjoyed my project and video tutorial today! Please be sure to click the next button below to hop on over Rebecca-Jo’s talented blog to see her fun birthday project!
