Stamp Review Crew: Dashing Deer

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, then you have just arrived from Mary Haugen's blog. Wow, right?! This lady has style!

I was in a winter starry night mood, and I just got the Bokeh Dots set, so here is what I came up with!

I love the delicate dies included in this bundle. Those swirls of leaves and flowers add the perfect icy touch.

The Softly Falling embossing folder is a classic, and works perfectly with the feel of this card.

That vellum banner was created using a die from Bunch of Banners.

Next, I really wanted to play with a sweater themed card. I love sweaters. I am always on the look out for quality Nordic style sweaters. Someday I will own more than one! Since I live in northern Minnesota, sweater weather lasts for more than half of the year, lol!

My Stamparatus made creating this panel a breeze!

I used the Cable Knit embossing folder to enhance the sweater vibe.

A watercolor brush with a nice pointed tip was very useful to apply the Vegas Gold shimmer paint to the flower centers.

And those skinny sentiment strips? I used the straw die from Coffee Cups to cut those out. Slick, I tell you!

Last up, that garland was begging to be featured all by itself! With the help of the Stamparatus, this pattern was stamped in Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, and Pear Pizzazz.

Then the white cardstock was ink blended with Soft Sea Foam and Old Olive.

And another piece of white cardstock was inked with Poppy Parade and got a white heat embossed sentiment. A die from the Farmhouse framelits made a lovely banner.

OK, that's all I have for you this round! Next up is Heidi Baks, and she is sure to have something amazing too!

Oh my goodness, Tanya - three amazing cards with so much attention to detail. Love the wintry scene of the first, the sweater style of the second and the fun repetitive stamping in the third.

What great ideas, Tanya! Love the "Nordic sweater" look -- as I am always happy to look at sweaters while never having to wear them... And the garland card is so fun with all the blended colors. However, the first card is certainly the showstopper with all the beautiful glitter and glimmer.

Love all three cards but the first cvard just did me in! That icy look is gorgeous!

Heidi Baks said...

Eek, that bokeh background is perfect! And I love the sweater theme is exactly what I thought of - works great!

Ann Schach said...

Absolutely wonderful cards, Tanya! Just when I thought nothing could top the first card, the second card just blew me away. It looks so much like a wonderful Scandinavian sweater. Great inspiration!

Lou said...

Wow Tanya. I love the way you think. These are all so creative. The 3 different styles are all fabulous!
