Stamp Review Crew: Saleabration 2023 #2


We have a very fun line-up of projects to share!  This is our second hop featuring Sale-a-Bration products.   If you missed the first one click on the banner below.  We have all of our past hops archived on our Stamp Review Crew website.  

We have just returned from a wonderful trip to California visiting family and sightseeing. One of our stops was at the Descanso Gardens near Pasadena where the camellias were in bloom.  It was AMAZING!  The collection of camellias is the largest North America.   On the garden map they call it the Cameillia Forest and they were not kidding!  There were so many varieties and the most lovely pinks, reds, blush, and white blooms.   

These beautiful flowers were with inspiration for my project using the Beautifully Happy stamp set.  I would guess that the flowers in this set are more likely hollyhocks but I am pretending they are camellias!    

I used Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends to color the images.  I also used the Blends to add color to the Windowpane Check Ribbon.  I stamped the main flower and bottom leaf a second time, cut them out and popped them up to add dimension.  

The inside is simply decorated and completes the sentiment.

Cindy is up next on the hop and she always has such pretty creations!
