Lotus Blossom - Stampin' Up!

I have finally got around to using the Lotus Blossom stamp set which is one of the products from Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration catalogue (see the link on the right hand side of my blog) and which you can earn for free on a purchase of £45 or more.
Lotus Blossom Stampin' Up! Thank you Card
It is a 3 step stamp and I stamped the lightest shade first followed by 2 darker shades.  Because the stamps are photopolymer it is easy to line them up and also because Stampin' Up! have made them with a tab at the top to make alignment even easier.

On the card above I used Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral.  I first stamped the lightest shade (the solid colour stamp) using Crisp Cantaloupe which I first stamped off on a bit of scrap paper and then stamped it straight onto the Whisper White card without re-inking to give it a very pale shade.  I then followed up with the next stamp, again with Crisp Cantaloupe but no 'stampin off' this time and then finished up with Calypso Coral for the darker highlights.

On the second card I used Pool Party and Coastal Cabana.  The ribbons are another free
Sale-A-Bration item and come in a pack of 3 with Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral and also some matching buttons.  I added 3 tiny pearls to each card to finish them off.
The cards were made using the Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes which come in a pack of 20 and are really good value at £5.50.  I lined the envelopes using the In Colour 2013-2015 Designer Series Paper Stack.

If you would like to buy any of the products used to make these cards, just click on the items listed below. 
(Where it shows a price of £0.00, this can be chosen as a free item - ie. for every £45 you spend during the sale-a-bration promotion you can choose one free product from the sale-a-bration catalogue).

Back tomorrow with another post.
