Stamp Review Crew: Window Shopping

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2017/08/window-shopping.html
And the Crew is back with another hop! This time we are featuring the Window Shopping stamp set. It works very well all by itself, but it also has a coordinating die set that creates a sweet hexagon box! I love bags and boxes, but I chose not to use the dies this time. Primarily because I created this project in a rush before flying out the door for a surprise visit to my daughter. She live 4 hours away, and I wanted to spend as much time with her as possible 😀


For those who are new to the Stamp Review Crew, here is a little background. We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together on the first and third Mondays of every month to do a blog hop. Each hop features a single stamp set to give you loads of inspiration for that set! The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog, and you will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want! And you can click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also.

If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Bronwyn Eastley's blog. I am in awe of her skills!

I needed to play with ink blending again. And I wanted to use a fun embossing folder as I planned to stamp the tiny cupcake on some of the details. So, here goes!
  1. Cut a piece of watercolor paper to 3¾"x5". 
  2. Open the Hexagons dynamic embossing folder. Apply ink to the embossing folder by pouncing an inked sponge on the slightly smaller side of the folder. Use Sweet Sugarplum at the top, Berry Burst in the middle, and Fresh Fig at the bottom. 
  3. Spritz the Watercolor panel lightly with water, then lay it spritzed side down onto the inked part of the folder. Run through the Big Shot. Allow to air dry, or heat set as it will be slightly wet yet. 
  4. Stamp the tiny cupcake in the same inks in random hexagons. 
  5. Take a scrap of Vellum at least 3½"x3", wipe with Embossing Buddy, and stamp the Happy Birthday in Versamark. Sprinkle with Copper embossing powder, tap off the excess, and heat set. 
  6. Cut the birthday greeting out with the Layering Ovals dies. Stitch to the card front. Or use your favorite way to adhere vellum to cardstock. 
  7. Adhere the finished panel to a Crumb Cake card base. 
  8. Inside, stamp 3 cupcakes, on in each color. Then stamp "make a wish" in Early Espresso just above the cupcakes. 
  9. Done!

See all of that great color wash variation?! And it is so easy! It really accentuates the dimension that you achieve with these embossing folders.

And there are the sweet little cupcakes. I could have been a little straighter. But these are handmade, so I think it is OK 😁

And now, Juana Ambida!! Love her stuff as well. So very many talented stampers on these hops :)

I think this is the most fun use of the color washing that you've done yet, Tanya! The color gradations, the water puddles, touches of white where no color landed, and the little cupcakes here and there...Awesome!
