Stamp Review Crew - Merriest Moments

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Merriest Moments 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! There are six of us today, and as always, you can click the banner at the top of each blog to see the blog roll.

Merriest Moments and the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder (with dies) was a returning fave in the Jul-Dec mini catalog. Sadly, it won't be returning after this mini ends on Jan. 4. so if it hasn't sold out, better grab it while you can.

I have two cards today. For the first card, I used the holly leaves and berry stamps to create my own specialty DSP background on the Lights Aglow Specialty DSP.

The leaves were stamped in Evening Evergreen and the berries in Cherry Cobbler. A narrow strip of gold (Fine Shimmer Paper coming Jan. 5) borders each side. The greeting (Cherry Cobbler) was die cut using a Labels Aglow die, which will be carried over. A loop of gold shimmer ribbon was added because....MORE SHINY GOLD STUFF!

The second card started with a watercolor wash on Fluid 100 paper using Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, and Evening Evergreen. After it was dry, it was embossed with the Merriest Frames folder and cut with the coordinating die. Some paint spatters were then flicked on to look like snow. I embossed a piece of Basic White for the background and adhered the die cut over it with liquid glue.

The greeting and poinsettias were stamped in Cherry Cobbler (with Evening Evergreen leaves) and a couple of Garden Green sprigs were added behind the poinsettias.

OH! I almost forgot the Evening Evergreen glimmer paper mat behind the greeting! Needed a bit more bling in addition to the Iridescent Pearls. *smile*

That's all I have to share for today, so click "Next" to see what Mike at Stampin-Style created, or "Previous" to visit Jay again!

  1. I am captivated by the watercolored die cut on the second card, but the serenity of the colors of your first card (even with all that gold!) is simply beautiful!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
