Stamp Review Crew - Festive Foliage

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Festive Foliage edition! The design team is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Nikki's blog, My Sandbox, welcome! Weren't her projects fab?! There are only three of us today, so the hop won't take long, but I hope it still brings you inspiration for this stamp!

Festive Foliage is a cling stamp and makes a great background (~4" x 5-1/4"), showing off other images or greetings. I seriously considered using a few images, but ultimately wanted to showcase just the background with some greetings and embellishments.

The first card is heat embossed with gold on Very Vanilla. I could have gone with so many other colors, but thought Cherry Cobbler for the card base and (Heartfelt Wishes) greeting looked so rich!

After adhering the embossed piece on a gold mat and onto the card base, I stamped the greeting and added another gold mat behind it. Then a few Gold Holly Leaves and Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestones completed it. Simple, yet elegant!

The next card is also heat embossed; this time white on Night of Navy. The silver Metallic Mesh ribbon looks so pretty against the dark blue!

I heat embossed the (Time of Giving) greeting in silver, then cut it out with a Tailor Made Tags die. A little silver mesh bow and some rhinestones added a bit more glitz. Again, simple but pretty!

Last is a stamped (Soft Succulent ink on Soft Succulent cardstock) background with some light shading added with light and dark Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends.

The greeting (Holly Jolly Wishes) was stamped in Evening Evergreen and die cut, then Soft Succulent shading was added around the edge with a Blending Brush. The scalloped E.E. mat was cut out of the mat behind the stamped background, saving a little cardstock. The supply chain is so crazy right now I'm trying to be more careful! Some silver Simply Elegant Trim and a few 2021-2023 Evening Evergreen In Color Jewels finished the card. This one was super simple and could easily be mass produced if you didn't take the time to color the background.

NOTE: The greetings are all from stamp sets that are retiring Jan. 3rd, so if you want them, now is the time to get them!

That's my share for today, so click NEXT to see what Holly at Rubber Redneck has made!
