Stamp Review Crew: Oh Hello Edition
This edition of the Stamp Review Crew features the Oh Hello stamp set with it's lovely fonts, beautiful flower and trendy chevrons. I always love playing with this stamp set and it is another example of a versatile set with images and sentiments for a variety of occasions and a variety of styles.

My first card is a vintage style card in Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla with just a few touches of Gold. I used Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive markers to color the flower image, which is spritzed with water before I stamped it onto the Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I added some stamped off images of the chevron pieces and the chevron patterned oval. I added some sponging around the flower and along the edges. For the bit of gold, I inked the En Francais background stamp in Gold Encore ink and stamped it over the entire piece. Finally, I covered the flower and stem in a thin layer of Dazzling Details to make it pop and give it some sparkle.

I embossed and die cut the Rich Razzleberry strip - I just love the Big Shot! The flower embellishment is a piece of Vellum that I sponged heavily and then punched with the Pansy Punch. I added some score lines for the flower center and to give it some dimension. My favorite part of this card though is the Gold Baker's Twine!

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Gold Encore
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Eerly Espresso, Very Vanilla, Vellum
Accessories: Delicate Designs TIEF, Large Scallops Edgelits, Little Leaves Sizzlit, Pansy Punch, Gold Baker's Twine, Dazzling Details, Jewel Pearls

My second card is stamped in a much cleaner and crisper style. I stamped the Thanks sentiment in Basic Black Craft ink at the center point of the Whisper White cardstock strip. This is Heat Embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I stamped the chevron image on either side of the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink. A mat of Coastal Cabana sets this off the Basic Black background. I added a wrap of Coastal Cabana Ruffled Trim and a layer of Silver 1/8" Ribbon over this, across the bottom. Finally, I added a few Mini Silver Brads across the top. This is such a quick and easy card!

Your cards are always so elegant, Mary. I love them both. The first has so many elements that combine to make it a real piece of art! And I love the colors on the second card too!

Dawn Tidd said...

Wow! These are definitely two very different but two stunning projects! Again, the versatility of Oh, Hello is definitely seen with these.

Yapha Mason said...

Great cards! I love the vellum flower on the first one, and the clean lines on the second!

The colors in your first card are so rich and perfect for a vintage feel. Like how you carried the design to the inside on both your cards.

What a lovely way to showcase the versatility of this set - from rich and dreamy to bold and dramatic! Both are wonderful!!

Oh Mary, your first card is just so elegant. But I love the clean look too! So versatile.

Awesome cards and great way to show this set with completely two different cards. I love the first one so pretty and soft and you just sold me on the pansy punch. ROFL Your second card is just so striking and pretty!

Deb said...

Beautiful cards! I love how you used the gold on the first one! And I love the ribbon on the second!

Love both of these, Mary. And I love how different they are to really show off this stamp set. Great job!

Both cards are truly beautiful Mary. Clean and simple and distressed vintage. Love all the elements on the vintage card and the vellum flower is beautiful.

It's a good thing I don't have to pick a favorite card, these are both so wonderful! I love the layers of stamping and the vellum flower on the first card. And the simple elegance of the second- especially the silver and ruffled ribbon combo!
