Oh, my! I LOVE this FREE Sale-A-Bration Lotus Blossom Stamp Set. The card I featured using it was only the beginning. This stamp set is like the Bow Builder Punch-ADDICTIVE. It’s so versatile and can be stamped in any colors as you’ll soon find out.
The wonderful things about this stamp are oh, so many! First it’s a Photopolymer stamp set which is great because you can see through it when you’re stamping. And, because the Lotus Blossom is made by stamping three overlays, this stamp set makes it way easy. Not only is it clear, but each piece of the Lotus Blossom has a tab with a number on it.
Here are a few tips for you when using the Lotus Blossom Stamp Set:
As I mentioned above, there are three images to line up to form the Lotus Blossom, there are several ways to achieve this.
1. Since this stamp set is a Photopolymer Set, the stamps are clear. So, you can line up by looking and aligning.
2. The second way is, because the stamps have numbered tabs, you simply place the tabs to the top of the mounting block for easy aligning.
3. The third way is to use the Lotus Blossom stamp case. Just match up the stamp case image with the stamp and stick the stamp on to the case. Place the mounting block over the stamp and all the stamps will line up the way they should. Repeat this with all three numbered stamps making sure the etched side is facing down on the case. I found this way to be pretty accurate. Sometime when using just the tab method the moung of the stamps could be off a bit, but nothing that can’t be remedied by moving the stamp around. All in all, these stamps are very easy to line up and the results are pretty spectacular and you have limitless choices with color.
Speaking of color here are two samples of different color combinations:
Now here are color combination charts for you to download and experiment with. Two charts have two-color combinations and one chart have three color combinations. All you have to do is click on the links and print them out on your home computer, on to Whisper White Card Stock and stamp right on the charts. Follow the directions at the bottom of each chart.
Leave me a comment if you have other color combinations. I’d love to hear from you. And, if you don’t have this Lotus Blossom Stamp Set yet, you have until March 31 to earn it for FREE with your $50.00 Stampin’ Up! order.
