The Stamp Review Crew: Sweet Citrus

Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop: Inspiring you one stamp set at a time

Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday of the month.  This week we are focusing on the yummy carryover set from the JJ23 Mini, Sweet Citrus.  If you are following the hop in order, you have just arrived from the blog of the very talented Kim Fee.   

Inspired by some internet photos, I thought I'd put together a fresh citrus wreath.

Stamps: Sweet Citrus; Paper: Balmy Blue, Basic Black, Very Vanilla; Ink: Lemon Lolly, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow, Smoky Slate, Versamark; Accessories: Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels, Vanilla Baker's Twine, White Embossing Powder, Sponge, Stitched with Whimsy Dies, Sweet Citrus Dies, Die-Cutting Machine, Dimensionals.

For another card, I've combined the hop with this week's Sunday Stamps challenge. 

Amy Koenders used an awesome color combination for the last Sunday Stamps challenge, and I couldn't resist trying it myself.  Wow, with the Tahitian Tide background, the grapefruit images really pop.  Here's this week's challenge sketch.

Stamps: Sweet Citrus, Rays of Light; Paper: Tahitian Tide, Basic Black, Whisper White; Ink: Calypso Coral, Lemon Lolly, Lost Lagoon, Highland Heather, Whisper White craft ink, Versamark; Accessories: Fine-Tip Glue Pen, White Embossing Powder, Sweet Citrus Dies, Die-Cutting Machine, Dimensionals.

ICYMI, here are some past samples with Sweet Citrus.

And for more ideas, check out our previous Sweet Citrus blog hop.
