Stamp Review Crew: Sweet Stack Edition

With the cold, snowy weather here in Michigan I am enjoying all things warm and comfy... fire in the fireplace, hot cocoa and warm snuggly kittens (yes we have a new one!)  

In my quest for warm and cozy I thought a set of quilt cards would be in order and I chose the tiny stamp with the sweet sentiment "Love You to Pieces" from our featured set Sweet Stack.

I adapted a stack-and-cut quilting technique for use with paper.  This makes a set of five coordinating cards so it is a great stash builder or a wonderful gift set.  Stack five pieces of designer series paper together and cut through the entire stack four times.  Then shuffle the papers and "viola!" five cards are almost done! 
Once the quilt pieces are assembled add some hand stitching and pretty little embellishments such as the Sending Love wooden hearts, Lace Doilies and tiny Sprinkles Embellishments.

Please see my video below for the detailed how-to's.  These are really delightful to make!


Well this wraps up the last Stamp Review Crew blog hop of 2016!  BTW we have a great website with all the past blog hops archived.  We already have a jump on planning for 2017 as well so come on back in the new year for more inspiration from the SRC!

Snappy Shaker Card

My brother-in-law always has his camera handy for capturing family memories.  So I made him a birthday shaker card with the great retro style camera from the Pun Intended host stamp set.
One of the niftiest yet inconspicuous items in the main catalog are the Foam Adhesive strips.  They are thicker height-wise than Stampin' Dimensionals and just right for shaker and spinner cards.  
Of course this special card needed to be pretty flashy! Glitter Paper stars, metallic thread and Mica Flakes did the trick.
