It's Border Buddy Saturday and it's Alison here today!
When I first became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in 2002 my favourite stamp set was Terrific Tulips. It was a 2-step stamp set and it looked gorgeous everytime. So when the Lotus Blossom set was one of the Free offerings for Sale-a-bration I was so excited because it's the same kind of stamp. Stamp images one on top of the other to create dimension. It's free with a $50 purchase (before shipping/taxes) until March 31st.
Here are some of my favourite cards using this set I received from my stamping friends.
By Ellie Blake – also uses the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper during Sale-a-bration but only while supplies last!
By Melva Peters – colours for the blossom are Blackberry Bliss (flower #1), Blackberry Bliss (flower #2, stamped off once first before stamping) and Smoky Slate (flower #3, stamped off once before stamping), Wild Wasabi for stem. It also uses the free Sale-a-bration reward Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Paper.
By Yvonne Jackson – colours on lotus blossom – Calypso Coral (flower #1), Calypso Coral (flower #2, stamped off once before stamping), Crisp Cantaloupe (flower #3). The card also uses images from the Butterfly Basics Stamp set using Pear Pizzaz and Crumb Cake inks. After stamping the left side is run through the Big Shot and the the Modern Mosaic Embossing folder.
