What is the Stamp Review Crew, you ask? We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together to do a blog hop on the first and third (and sometimes on a fifth) Monday of each month. For each hop we chose a single stamp set for us all to use, and then we let our creativity loose! We have a blog with all of the hops archived, so you can hop through any of the hops any time. Click here to go to the blog to see all of the hops! To go to the specific post for this hop, click here, or on the banner above.
If you are following along in order, I am the first stop! But if you started somewhere in the middle, you just arrived from Sue Plote's blog. She took a break for a while, and this is her first hop back. Be sure to give her a warm welcome back!
This is an ornament, so it had to be sturdy. Each element is actually 3 layers of diecut paper glued together.
And the snowflake was painted with watered down Frost White shimmer paint.
The greeting is Copper heat embossed on a Stitched Details diecut.
The little wooden snowflake? That is from last year's Holiday Mini, and is the first time I have used them! Do you have some in your stash?
And the snowflake is Frost White shimmer painted also.
I actually took several quarter sheets of paper and painted them with some shimmer paint mixed with a little water, then did the die cutting. Much easier, and so beautiful!
Did you know you can stamp over the shimmer paint too?
And the embellishment on the front is also an ornament! This time I used the white glitter paper. I can't remember what we are calling it now, but it used to be the Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper.
Here you can see the insert card, which is stamped with the skis.
Look at that dazzling snowflake! And the gorgeous Nordic details on the snowshoes.
I made a bunch of all of these ornaments and brought them with me when we went to the hospital for the latest grandbaby's delivery. We gave them to the medical staff taking care of our daughter and granddaughter.
This is the sweet Eva (A-va) Jane! She was born on Nov. 25th at 8:26pm. She really is a sweet baby, only cries a few squeaks before she calms right down. We are so excited to add this baby to the family!
OK, enough grandma gushing, time to head to the next stop!
Next up is Stesha Bloodhart, who recently achieved the honor of being chosen for Artisan Design Team for 2019! Congratulations Stesha, you are a true Artisan!
