Stamp Review Crew - Free As A Bird

the stamp review crew
Hello Peaches! I'm here to participate in another fun blog hop with The Stamp Review Crew! If you're not familiar with The Stamp Review Crew , they are a group of very talented international Stampin' Up! demonstrators who get together on the first and third Monday of each month to bring you all kinds of delicious inspiration that features a different stamp set each new Monday. 


The blog hops are archived at The Stamp Review Crew blog and you'll be able to click through the hops at any time, going directly to the posts as you wish for any of the hops. Just click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also. If you have already started the hop, you will have come from the lovely and creative Bronwyn Eastley.

FREE AS A BIRD BUNDLE

For this hop, we are featuring the Free As A Bird Bundle from the Bird Ballad Suite of products. I have made quite a few cards and projects with this stamps set because it's such a beautiful and versatile set. 

I went for a bold look so the natural choice for me was to use the brand new Incolor Pretty Peacock Cardstock  for my base panel. I also thought that Petal Pink would compliment the peacock color so I used a bit of the Petal Pink patterned paper from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (DSP).



  I wanted to add a little bit of extra texture so I roughed up the edges of the stitched die cut edges. It's super easy and if you've never done it before, here's how you do it:
  1. Take your Paper Snips and run them back and fourth along the area that you'd like to rough up. You're essentially breaking down the fibers in the paper.
  2. Once the paper is more "pliable" you can feel the layers apart for a more textured look, super simple! 


I made a second bonus card with this set, only this time I went with a softer look. Here's a close-up of the finished product:

Fancy Friday - Favorite New Annual Catalog Item

Hey everyone and welcome to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! If you’re new the the Fancy Friday Blog Hops, we are a group of past and current Artisans that get together each month on the last Friday of each month to bring you crafty inspiration with monthly themes and challenges. I’m so honored and excited to be a part of this talented group! Now onto this month’s focus!


This month we get to choose our favorite new item from the Annual Catalog, and while I have many favorites, the We'll Walrus Be Friends Set just makes me smile.This set has the cutest walrus images with a few fish sprinkled in, and the sentiments are just too adorable. It's definitely a must-have.
WE'LL WALRUS BE FRIENDS CLING STAMP SET
I made two cards today. My first card uses that gorgeous new Pretty Peacock Cardstock. I typically don't gravitate towards regal colors but this one is just so rich and beautiful. I wanted to ground my focal pieces so I used my Stitched Label Dies and embossed it into the background. I used my Smokey Slate blends to color my walrus. I just love his little eye brows.  


I couldn't help but make a second card because I was just having so much fun with this set and just couldn't stop stamping with it. I used my Aqua Painter to create a shimmery watercolor striped background to look like the ocean. I just love how beautifully Seaside Spray, Pacific Point, and Bermuda Bay Inks look together!


Hopefully you can see in the close-up image below how I've created some shimmer splatter. I achieve this effect by taking some Frost White Shimmer Paint and putting it in my Aqua Painter with some water and then tapping the brush against my finger to get the splatter on my card. It's subtle but so gorgeous in person. 


I hope You have enjoyed my card for today and don't forget to keep hopping for more inspiration. Up next on the hop is the incredibly talented Rochelle Blok. You will be blown away by here designs!

Stampin' Up! June 2019 Paper Pumpkin - Paper Pumpkin Alternatives


Hey peaches! I just wanted to share a few alternatives that I made from the June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit. If you have never heard of Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up!, it is a crafting subscription kit that delivers creativity to your door every month. Each box includes everything you need to make a stunning project.Each month you'll be surprised with projects like cards, gift packaging, home décor, and more for just $22.00 a month (shipping included). Talk about happy mail! If you are interested in subscribing to Paper Pumpkin, click here. I have also included a link to the unboxing video down below.


I was so inspired by this kit that I have been making alternatives projects non stop. I'm pretty sure it's one of my all time favorites.I made three 3x3 cards for today's post. Each card uses the products from the kit, along with a few additional inks, cardstcok, and embellishments (I will include a list of links below).

For my first card I used some Coastal Cabana Ink and the coral stamp to stamp a background on Coastal Cabana Cardstock. Then I layered on a few items from the kit.


My second card was created using the starfish stamp in Sahara Sand Ink. I used the same color ink to make my gradual inked background. I love how looks like sand in the background.


My last card uses Old Olive Cardstock and that gorgeous vellum circle. I love the texture it adds! By the way, how much do you LOVE the glittery starfish and sand dollar die cuts?!?!


Well, those are my projects for today.Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you next post! Don't forget! You can find me on Instagram and Facebook! Happy stamping!
