Stamp Review Crew: Bonus Hop-Truly Tailored
There are five Mondays in April this year, so you know what that means! A bonus Stamp Review Crew hop!! This time we are using the soon to be retired Truly Tailored. I love me a great masculine set, and this one is certainly a fun one!

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 Stesha Bloodhart blog. Not only do I love her projects, I adore her photography and editing skills!

One of the reasons I love this set so much is the awesome little iconic images that are included in the set. The mountains and the arrows are so fun to make repeating patterns with. The Stamparatus played a big part in this card. I mimicked the mountains with vellum stitched squares cut in half and adhered behind the oval.

And the Simple Stripes embossing folder came out to play with this card. The stamped medallion behind the punch was made using a wreath builder jig. You can find all kinds of videos on YouTube for how to make your own jig to use with a stamp positioning tool. OK, I know I use the term "jig" a lot for this when most people call it a template. Blame it on my woodworking upbringing.

And now, Ann Schach's!I am sure she has created something delightfully elegant!

What fun and creative cards, Tanya! Love the green background on the first one! It looks great with Crumb Cake and the Vellum squares set everything off perfectly. The "compass" behind the sentiment is a great look. You have me curious and I'm going to look up the "jig"! :)

I have to tell you, I love every little detail on your first card! I must try to get the repeat stamping happening with the Stamparatus, and those vellum peaks are adorable!

Ahh now I know how to use the one stamp on the first card. lol Your cards are fabulous! Love the vellum peeks that is very cute idea.

Mike said...

Wow Tanya! That background was a lot of stampin’ but the Stamparatus is so much fun to play with and the result is fabulous! The three stitched squares to mimick the pattern is brilliant!

Mickey Roberts said...

Wow, Tanya! Great projects! Love the way you mimicked the mountains with the vellum in the first card and added the rays behind the focal point in the second. So many great details to go with the amazing repetitive stamping.

Lou said...

I love how your brain works! Fabulous use of the Stamparatus with these background stamps. Makes me look at the stamp set in a whole new light! Lou x

Mitosu Crafts said...

Wow! Love how you used the small stamps for the background and the addition of the stitched vellum is so clever!

Ann Schach said...

Oh my gosh, Tanya! I have never used these little images because I never really knew how to use them, but these cards are absolutely awesome! Of course, the stitching always adds so much! Once again, thank you for the inspiration!
