Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Sweet Candy Canes edition! The "Crew" is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world 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 Jay's blog, welcome! Isn't his creativity remarkable? There are only three of us today due to ongoing technical issues with some of our crew's blog hosts, so the hop won't take long.
The Sweet Candy Canes bundle wasn't really on my radar at first, but it has definitely grown on me! It's a nine piece cling stamp set, and has a six piece coordinating die set called Candy Canes Dies. This is all part of the Sweetest Christmas Suite on page 9 of the Jul-Dec Mini, which includes DSP, glimmer paper, ribbon and embellishments, and another stamp & die set!
I have two cards to share today, and both of them are in non-traditional colors. The first one is in the new In Color Parakeet Party, along with Granny Apple Green and Basic Black..... it doesn't get much more non-traditional than that. *grin*
I matted the Whimsical Woodland-embossed iridescent dots from Snowflake Specialty Vellum on Parakeet Party, then on a Basic Black mat. After tying a black baker's twine bow it was adhered to the Granny Apple Green card base.
The candy canes were stamped in Parakeet party, die cut and adhered to the Granny Apple Green Stylish Shapes circle and popped up on dimensionals on the card. The greeting, white heat embossed on Basic Black, was cut apart and added with dimensionals.
The second card features another 2022-2024 In Color, this time Tahitian Tide. The white striped background die cut was adhered to the gorgeous ombre Tahitian Tide Glimmer Paper then popped up on the card base.
I colored one of the Wonderful Snowflakes embellishments with the Dark Tahitian Tide Stampin' Blend (colored on the back!) and adhered it to the card and added a few white Adhesive-backed Sequins.
Instead of using an image, I chose just a greeting, stamped and fussy cut, then popped up on a Tahitian Tide (Stylish Shapes die) mat. The bow was a bit of silver Simply Elegant Trim, colored with the dark Tahitian Tide Blend.
That's all I have to share for today, so click "Next" to see what the amazing Charlet over at Painted Orange created, or "Previous" to visit Jay again! And be sure to check back tomorrow (Tuesday), because I have another Sweet Candy Canes card in the works that didn't get done in time for this hop. 😉
