Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop! We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday. This week we are using a fun and popular new set in the Occasions catalog, Number of Years, which coordinates with the Large Numbers framelits. If you are following the blog hop order, you have just come from the hugely talented Linda Callahan's blog. I just love her style!
When I first saw this bundle, I thought I didn't need more numbers. And then the cute, adorable, fabulous samples from fellow demonstrators started coming out. They wore me down! So here's my take on this stamp set and bundle.
Friday Mashup is a color combination plus some sparkly powder technique (Chalk Pastels, Pearl Ex, Shimmer Paints, Shimmer watercolors, etc.). For the sparkly part, I embossed the numbers with iridescent ice embossing powder.
I figure I should give you the little story behind this card. We are suppose to get together with the in-laws on vacation to celebrate my father-in-law's 70th birthday. Well we are about a year late in getting it all arranged, so we'll celebrate his "70th again". He's a gardener, so it's ok to give him flowers. ;)
And I put together a birthday card for my niece with a world-is-your-oyster-type theme. She is away at college, and her bright future will be opening up very soon.
