My favorite Sale-a-bration stamp set (so far) is Lotus Blossom and I have a sneaking suspicion that it is a favorite of many of you as well.
Because the Lotus Blossom uses 3 stamps to create the beautiful flower, you will need to use one, two, or three different colors of ink. My flower uses only Crisp Cantaloupe ink. I stamped off two times for the first layer, then I stamped off once for the second layer. The third layer is full strength and has all of the detail.
Tip: The Crisp Cantaloupe card stock behind the Window Frame was cut with my paper cutter. It is such an easy way to add a little bit of color to the Whisper White Window Frame.
Another Tip: Curve the flower stem or keep it straight - it's easy to manipulate because the Lotus Blossom stamp set is Photopolymer.
Now that Stampin' Up! has revealed 2 new Sale-a-bration stamp sets for the month of March, I wonder if Lotus Blossom will finish as the favorite? Time will tell!
