Today the Stamp Review Crew has a little something different for you - we are focusing on a background stamp called Buffalo Check! This leaves the possibilities wide open for us to use other stamps as the focal point, so it should be fun to see what the Crew has dreamed up for this hop! The Stamp Review Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! demos from around the world who like to show you all the different ways a particular stamp set can be used. Whether you landed here from Dawn's blog, or are starting here, just follow the links on each blog to take the whole tour!
The is the Buffalo Check background stamp. Pretty basic, but can be used for so many looks! I had several ideas, but finally decided on a farmhouse feel. These checks remind me of the old TV show Home Improvement. Tim (The Toolman) Taylor's sidekick Al always wore checkered shirts. That was such a funny show!
Anyhoooo, yesterday I held a Christmas Treats Packaging class, and one of the treats we made was an adorable Ferrero Rocher holder. I designed it five years ago, but decided to update it using current products. So for this one, I created the "DSP" using the background stamp, and then used some more on the card! This would be a nice little treat for your honey when he checks something off the "honey do" list.
The Tin Tile background was sponged with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint to complement the gold foil and greeting on the treat, then lightly sanded for a distressed look.
Tutorial for the treat holder can be found HERE. It really is just the cutest little thing in real life! It would be a great stocking stuffer, or even a little something for a co-worker or teacher.
That's all for me. Thanks for stopping by! Up next is Holly, and she is the QUEEN of lovely layers....I just love her style!
