Stamp Review Crew: Thoughtful Banners Edition

It's the third Monday of the month so it is time for another Stamp Review Crew blog hop!   This session is focusing on the incredibly versatile sentiment set Thoughtful Banners.

The release of the 2017-2018 annual Stampin' Up catalog is near (June 1) and one of the nifty perks of being a demonstrator is being able to preorder select items before the release date.  My project combines Thoughtful Banners (which is carrying over to the new catalog) with some preorder goodies.
I have "Happy Mother's Day" on my card but with all the words that are in the Thoughtful Banners set you could make this for almost any occasion.  Thoughtful Banners is a photopolymer set so the stamps can be bent to fit the space on the banner.
Also I used the flowers from the new set Wood Words.   The layout could just as easily be made into a masculine card by changing the center stamp and colors.  This card is monochromatic and highlights the lovely new In-Color Berry Burst.  The color variation of the four banners is created by stamping on the Color Theory Designer Series Paper that looks like a paint chip.  So pretty when layered on the ombre paper!

Thanks for hopping along with the "Crew" today!  Please click on the links below to see all the Thoughtful Banners projects we have prepared for you.
