RemARKable Stampers Best of 25 Years Blog Tour: Best of Greetings

Hello!  It has been a fun and exciting week at the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City, and now it is time for a fabulous blog tour featuring the Best of Greetings stamp set.

Best of Greetings  Catalog #133485  $14.95
This is one of my favorite stamp sets because it is so very versatile.  It is one of my "go-to" stamp sets for so many projects.  Here is my first project for you today:

I made several of these as swaps for the Stampin' Up! Convention.  I inked one of our clear blocks with Coastal Cabana ink and stamped it on a layer of Whisper White.  The coral stamps were inked with Calypso Coral ink and the seahorses were inked with Baked Brown Sugar ink.  The Calypso Coral Baker's Twine adds a nice touch to this card, don't you think?

Here is another sample for you:

This is one of the cards we made at my Summer Fun stamping class.  I just love this "sunburst" technique.  The "love you" stamp is just perfect for this bright, cheery card! 

Here is another card from my Summer Fun class:

This card showcases one of my new favorite colors, Bermuda Bay.  Bermuda Bay was an In Color a few years back, and I am so glad it has been added to our color palette.  I think it is perfect for this card featuring seashells from the By The Seashore stamp set. 

My last card gives you a little sneak peek at a new product that will be featured in the new Holiday Mini Catalog that goes live on August 1, 2013.  (Hint, hint.....a new embossing folder!) 

The flowers were stamped in Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake card stock and then punched out with the Perfect Pansy punch.  I layered two flowers together as an embellishment for the front of the card and added a Basic Pearl in the center. 

Well, now it's time to see what Melissa Bolinger has in store for you.  Just click on the icon below or this link
