Most of you know that Sale A Brations is in full swing! One of the wonderful products you can receive for FREE when you purchase $50 in new products from the Stampin'Up! catalog is this beautiful stamp set called Lotus Blossom. It is a multi layered stamp, meaning more than one stamp is used to create this beautiful effect. When I stamped the lotus flower I started out with Blackberry Bliss on the stamp labeled 1. Next I used Rich Razzleberry for stamp 2. Finally I stamped the stamp labeled 3 with Rich Razzleberry, but then stamped off once to create the lighter tone of the same color. I think it turned out wonderful! The stem was done in Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz.
Also, note that I used our new stapler to adhere the string of sequins onto the card.
