Stamp Review Crew - Snow Crystal

HAPPY NEW YEAR and welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's SNOW CRYSTAL edition! We're happy to see you for the very first Stamp Review Crew hop of 2024! If you landed here from Debra's blog, Heartfelt Inkspiration, welcome! There are four of us today, so the hop shouldn't take long.

Snow Crystal is one of the Stampin' Up! cling background stamps, and pairs well with other sentiment or image stamps. Since Christmas has just passed, I'm going with a winter and New Year's theme today. First up....the new year!

Snow Crystal was stamped on a Crumb Cake background using White Craft ink and then heat embossed in white.

The greeting (Year to Celebrate) was heat embossed in black on vellum cardstock, and the numbers were cut from More Dazzle Specialty Paper, then glued to the vellum. On the back side of the vellum, I carefully added thin lines of liquid glue behind the greeting and numbers to adhere it to the card without any adhesive showing. That whole panel was then popped up on dimensionals to the Crumb Cake card base.

The winter card started with Snow Crystal stamped in Balmy Blue (stamped off once) on a Basic White panel, then embossed with the Snowflake Sky 3D folder. It was then adhered to the card base with Stampin' Seal.

The label behind the greeting was stamped (Sparkling Snowflakes) in Balmy Blue stamped off twice. It was cut with a Thoughtful Expressions (coming soon!) die, and snowflakes (from Chic Dies) were cut from vellum and Holographic Trio Specialty Paper and adhered to the back.

The label was popped up on the card and the greeting was stamped and fussy cut before being popped up on the label.

That's all I have to share for today, so click "Next" to see what Holly, The Rubber Redneck, created, or "Previous" to visit Deb again. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Wow, Cindy! These are both beautiful, like holiday parties on paper! I didn't think of Crumb Cake with a white snowflake, but that is so classic. Well done!
