Stamp Review Crew – Made With Love

I am so absolutely excited to share the news with you, that I have been invited to join the Stamp Review Crew!

This talented group of international designers posts twice a month – highlighting a different Stampin’ Up! stamp set in each blog hop that takes you around the world with endless inspiration!

Thanks to the team for having me on board!  You can find a full crew list to the right.


Stamp Review Crew - Made with Love

For my first stamp review, the chosen set was Made With Love – which is a gorgeous baby set from the Annual Catalogue.

When I saw that this was the set, I was delighted – because I am currently organising a baby shower for one of my besties.  I have bought her a couple of cute little baby presents, but I thought she might also appreciate a set of thank you cards to give to her friends and family over the coming months.

With a bit of sponging, some shimmery white cardstock, cute little animals and a lot of fussy cutting – I created this little “Made With Love” notecard holder.

The cute little notecard holder has been my go-to present for the last couple of months in various different designs.  It’s so simple & elegant and the perfect size!

Thanks to Caroline Helwigh Wright for the notcard holder measurements.  You can find them here.

There are 2 each of 4 notecard designs, each featuring a different Made With Love animal on an ombre background.

The background was sponged using a piece of cardstock with a 2″ circle punched out to create a template.  With my sponge daubers, I applied my three colours – the top colour is Pool Party, then Bermuda Bay, then Lost Lagoon.  I love the mottled effect of using multiple ink colours.

And with my blender pen, I added a dash of colour to each of the animals.  I love that you can use all your colour tools with only your ink pads – no extra supplied needed!

While I was on a roll with my sponging & fussy cutting, I also made her a card to put away for when the baby is born.  Things that match make my heart sing!

Well, that ended up being very photo heavy!  I may have been a little enthusiastic when I was snapping away {a wee bit excited!}.

The next blog to visit is another new crew member – Holly Stene.  Wait til you see what she’s done with the Made With Love stamp set!
