Stamp Review Crew: Nailed It Edition

Welcome to the latest Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop!  Our international crew highlights one stamp set on each blog hop which are the first and third Mondays of the month.   A great way to get many ideas for using a stamp set!

This time we are using the set Nailed It.  The tools and sentiments are super for masculine cards.  I however chose the little itty bitty smile stamp as the focus for my project.  By punching the tiny smiles stamped on bright colors with the 1/4" circle punch I got M&M's!  Milk chocolate M&M's are my favorite so I mounted the "candies" on a Chocolate Chip piece of cardstock.
The sentiment was done by selectively inking up just a few letters or words with a marker.   For example "so" is from the stamp that says "sorry".  By looking at all the words in a stamp set you often can come up with new combinations or words--a great way to stretch the usefulness of a set!
To keep the circle theme going I used Whisper White Mini Pompom Trim and colored it with markers.

  1. What a clever use of this stamp set! Perfect chocolate lover's card. My favorite is dark chocolate though! :)
