Stamp Review Crew: Dotty Angles Edition

 It's the first Monday of June so that means it's time for another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop. It comes around so quickly each time but I'm so happy to have you here again I can't believe that we are in June already. The year is flying!!!!! Winter is definitely starting to set in and is getting very chilly! Makes it a little hard to get out of bed in the morning, that's for sure! 

This hop we are using the Dotty Angles stamp set. An awesome set for some fabulous backgrounds!! For those hopping along for the first time, we are a group of International Stampin' Up! demonstrators and we have a blog hop of the first and third Monday of each month. Each hop showcases one stamp set and we like to show you lots of different creative ways to use it!
Remember, if you get lost on the hop click on the banner at the top of this post and this will give you the list of all the 'hoppers' in The Stamp Review Crew.
This set has two patterns, a triangle pattern and a dotty pattern, hence the name Dotty Angles. 
I've used the triangle stamp and this one lend itself awesomely to heat embossing which is what I've done on my card today.

I wanted to make it look like the background was made with a texture paste so I embossed the triangle stamp on white card stock with white embossing powder. Because the stamp is photopolymer and completely clear it makes it very easy to repeatedly stamp the triangle image and line it up without a Stamp-a-ma-jig!  I actually used the Shimmery White Card stock to emboss on but it is really hard to get that shimmer to show up in the photos.

I'm not usually into the mustard colours but I think by using the new In Colour, Delightful Dijon, to give a pop of colour works really well! How cool is that colour combo too??!! Delightful Dijon, Smoky Slate, Black and Whisper White.

I tried to get a close up to show the Shimmery White card stock. I think you can see a little bit of the shimmer in this one. It really is pretty card stock and gives a beautiful, subtle shimmer!

Not long now and you too can get some of the new In Colours and new catalogue products. Bring on June 2nd!!!!
