Stamp Review Crew: Watercolor Wings

Welcome to the newest edition of the  Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop.    Watercolor Wings is our featured stamp set for this round.  With every new catalog there is usually one stamp set that really stands out to me as a favorite and Watercolor Wings was it for me this time.  If it is not already one of your favorites I am sure it will be after you see the projects the Crew have created!

My card this time has a Clean & Simple front
with a surprise pop-up on the inside.

I am rather excited about the pop-up mechanism.  It is super simple!  I enjoy figuring out alternative ways to use products-especially dies and framelits.  I often think I am more logical than artistic when it comes to crafting.  My background is science and math...can you tell?  :)

Here is a side view of the pop-up.
I did make video for this card as it is easier to demonstrate than explain.  This is only my third video and it has been so long since my last one that I completely forgot how the editing software works!  I fumbled my way through so please excuse all the flubs.

Stamp Review Crew: Sprinkles of Life

Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop!  Every first and third Monday crew members share creations using a selected stamp set.  This time we are using the super popular Sprinkles of Life set.

Sprinkles of Life has images for lots of occasions (birthday, friendship, thanks) and most of the seasons as well (spring, summer and fall).  There are no specific wintery type images so I thought it might be fun to see if I could come with a way to use it for that season as well.
This little snow gal has a hat made with the upside down ice cream cone,  tree branches for arms, a raindrop for her carrot nose, and flowery buttons (ok that may be a bit of stretch for winter but I thought they were cute!).  The rays of the sun are the candle stamp!  The little birdie and the sentiment are all from this set too.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please click on the links below to continue on for tons more inspiration.
