It's Stamp Review time! This edition we are reviewing the stamp set Window Shopping. I struggled at first to come up with a project and then the flood gates opened. Does that ever happen to you? I just sat a stared at the stamp set, and stared, walked away and then came back and stamped something else. LOL. Anyway, projects came together somehow.
The Stamp Review Crew is a group of International Stampin' Up! demonstrators who want to show you how much you can do with one stamp set. Fun idea, heh? Each unique blog hop will feature one stamp set. Each stop along the hop will show you a different idea, or ideas using that set! If you are hopping in order just came from Dawn Kidd. Next up on the Window Shopping. stamp review is Ann Schach, thanks for stopping by!
I took elements from the basic layout, watercolor background and the color Flirty Flamingo to play from. It's always fun to sneak new products ... so I featured a new stamp set that will be released soon (Sept 1) from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday catalog. BTW - If you'd like a Holiday catalog, leave me a comment or drop me an email.
Girl, You Are FABULOUS! It's true. It also happens to be the theme challenge for this week over at TGIF Challenges. Now, I'm not gonna lie, all of my cards are a little bit girly. It seems I don't create many masculine cards. Really, any card I've created over the last few months would have worked for this challenge. I decided to use a stamp set that I have not yet featured, Tabs for Everything, to create this card. It has the sentiment FABULOUS, which is perfect for this challenge. I used pink and gold as my color scheme and went to town. Diamonds, Gold, Crowns, Doilies, Faceted Gems, Pink ... what more could a girly girl ask for?
Check out what the team created over at the TGIF Challenges blog and show us your girly girl projects. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Stamping!
The Tabs for Everything stamp set includes all sorts of fun icons for you daily planner, journaling, and for creating small embellishments. I created this crown tab using 3 stamps from the set. The tab punch frames these icons perfectly.
Gold bling and more ... See that little sneak of gold 1/8' washi tape between the 'you're' and 'fabulous' sentiments? That taoe is from a new metallic Washi tape assortment coming soon in the holiday catalog. A MUST HAVE. Stay tuned for more product sneaks, coming soon!
Welcome to another What Will You Stamp Challenge. This week we are sharing samples created using the Bike Ride Stamp set. This stamp set is a builder set, meaning you need to combine pieces to create an overall image. This set is also a 2-step stamp set, allowing you to create multi-colored images by stamping and layering on top of each other. The stamp set has so many accent images, providing tons of options to customize and build a scene.
I'm sharing a few cards this week. Two cards featuring builder bikes, and two cards showcasing how the smaller 2-step images.
My first sample was totally inspired by this lovely Instagram photo from HELLOMISSMAY. You can easily see how I interpreted the colors and the scene onto this Thinking of You card. The brick background was created using the brick stencil and embossing paste. In hindsight, I should of added a little touch of pink.
Inspiration is everywhere! Be sure to check out the WWYS Blog for more inspiration using Bike Ride.
