Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew, an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who get together on the first and third Mondays of the month to feature our take on a single stamp set. Today we are focusing on Crafting Forever which, if I had my way, would be the ONLY thing I'd do! Too bad things like gardens, and laundry, and husbands, and pets get in the way of crafting. (Those last two want to eat every day....can you imagine?!) *smile*
You probably just landed here from Mickey's blog, Paper Conversation. Her creativity always knocks my socks off! To continue on the entire hop, just click the links at the bottom of each stop. There are sixteen of us on the hop today.
The greeting on the first card really made me chuckle when I fist saw it. Yeah, those dust bunnies aren't going to go anywhere, so you might as well make something pretty, right? They'll be waiting for you when you're done, LOL.
The sentiment on the next card is something I really try to take to heart....even if I can only squeeze a few minutes in. It's "me" time - therapy, if you will. My craft room is definitely my happy place, and I always feel renewed after spending some quality time with stamps, ink, and cardstock!
And for the last card, I tried to keep it sweet and feminine, so Berry Burst is the main color, with stamped off Smoky Slate paper snips making up the background. I really like how well those colors complement each other! Did you notice the Glitter Enamel Dot on the snip's hinge?
That's all I have to share today. All the products used are listed at the bottom. Now hop on over to my dear friend Adriana's blog, Escape2Stamp. (Pssst - her journal is gorgeous!)
Where to start? These are terrific! The white is wood is a great look!ReplyDelete
Great cards, Cindy! I love the tinsel on the first one -- super cute and clever!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Yapha! It was a toss-up between that or the silver mini sequin trim. ;)Delete
Three fun cards Cindy! Loving all the different looks and feels that you have to each card. A fabulous use of this stamp set. Rochelle xoReplyDelete
Love your cards, Cindy! I think my favorite is the glitter dot on the scissors of your last card. As much as our scissors are in our hands they should be bedazzled! Really like the wood/white embossing of the second card and your watercolored paintbrush jar for your first card is awesome!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mickey! I agree our snips should be bedazzled, like those scissors charms!!!Delete
Three amazing examples of how to use those stamps. Love the Glitter Enamel Dot on the scissors - too cute!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Bronwyn!Delete
Cindy - these are all gorgeous cards! Your coloring is so nicely done. My stamp room is my happy place, too. You've inspired me to spend more time in it!ReplyDelete
Nancy, thank you, and I'm so happy to hear that! DO IT!!!!Delete
Cindy, these are all wonderful. Love your images on the wood!ReplyDelete
AW cool, I really like the colors and details on the first card. The blue pot is a gorgeous color. I imagine having something like that on a craft table would be very inspiring! TFS :)ReplyDelete
Fun collection of cards to go with the different sentiments! I really love your pretty dust bunnies!!ReplyDelete
I'm so late on going through this hop, oops! Your cards are all really beautiful. So many fun details to explore. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
