Stamp Review Crew - Oh, Hello Edition

I am so happy to FINALLY be able to play along with the Stamp Review Crew!! There are a LOT of talented and super-crafty-fun people in this group, and I am honored to have been asked to join in! This week, we are doing a "review" of the "Oh, Hello" stamp set!! Let's get started!!





Just to refresh your memories (or to, perhaps, introduce many of you to it!), here is the stamp set with which we are working this week ...

And here's what I did with it! Actually, I took the "chevron" image AND the "Oh, Hello" image from MDS and imported them into my eCutter software (Silhouette Studio Designer Edition). I cut the chevron out in Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White ... then I mixed/matched them until I got a grouping I liked and glued it down to some good ol' Basic Black. The rose was made using the Bigz Spiral Flower Die and BOTH Primrose Petals AND Crushed Curry cardstock. I "roughed up" the paper with my Sanding Block (the Primrose Petals was actually some Core'dinations paper). I like the look of it with the roughed-up edges, don't you?? And, of course, had to add me a little bit o' GRUNGE (I swear that Gorgeous Grunge is the LITTLE BLACK DRESS of stamp sets ... GOTTA have it!).

Stamps:  Gorgeous Grunge
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Primrose Petals (Core'dinations), Basic Black

Theresa said...

Gorgeous! That looks like a lot of effort o.O

Wendy, this is amazing! I love the pop of colors on the black. Your flower looks so cool. I agree the Core'dinations really adds to the WOW factor. I have never seen one of the flowers rolled that way, with the colors alternating. Must add that to my list of things to try! Too bad that list is in my head and I am constantly forgetting what is on it! lol

Those chevrons are a striking addition, Wendy! I love the distressed flower. That little black dress is certainly well accessorized!

Yapha said...

Wow!! What a card! That is truly incredible -- great colors, gorgeous flowers, everything! I love it!

Nancy Smith said...

So colorful. I like how you manipulated the sentiment in MDS. The black behind the curry really makes it pop.

Betty said...

Mmm, mmm is that pretty! What an interesting combo of the bright chevrons with the distressed flower. Pairing Melon mambo with Primrose Petals is an unexpected and fun idea!

Heidi Baks said...

How beautiful, Wendy! The flower is gorgeous, but WOW, all the futzy chevron cutting and gluing. That is impressive!
