A Match made in Heaven! Yesterday I shared with you my favorite paper from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog; a specialty paper called Irresistibly Yours. You can see that blog post here.
Today, I am sharing with you my favorite stamp set from Sale-A-Bration: Lotus Bloom. When Lotus Bloom and Irresistibly Yours went out on a blind date, it was love at first sight and they have been inseparable ever since!
Lotus Bloom is a 3-step stamp. Yes, 3-step. That’s not a typo, it is a 3-step; not a 2-step stamp set. The Lotus flower image is irresistible (probably why it is in love with the paper of the same name!) on its own, but the font in the sentiments is to die for. Now let me show you the magic that happens when you stamp all three flower images, one of top of the other.
See the gorgeous depth & detail? This is actually created from just one color ink; Lost Lagoon. But by layering the 3 stamps, and stamping off between layers, you can create various shades of the same color.
Now, for the font: I love when a print and a script are combined. Excuse me if this is a little blurry; it got distorted trying to zoom in & crop such a small area.
Now when Lotus Bloom and Irresistibly Yours are going steady; this is the result:
Don’t you just love these two together? They make such a cute couple. I think I hear wedding bells…. The Irresistibly Yours paper and sponge daubers allow you to create light & dark areas on the paper; it mimics the light and dark areas on the flower.
I bet you didn’t even mind waiting until last to see the final project. I usually show you the final project first, then zoom in on the details but today I flipped it around.
