Stamp Review Crew: Butterfly Gala Edition

Time for another edition of the Stamp Review Crew!  On the first and third Monday of each month Crew members share their personal take on a chosen stamp set.  This time it the pretty Butterfly Gala set.  What better time to bring out the butterflies and think (wishfully!) of spring?  Past hops are archived on our SRC blog which you can see any time of year by clicking on the banner below.

I decided upon a circle spinner card to add some movement to the lovely butterflies.

Originally I planned to add more embellishments.   I pulled out the matching organdy ribbon and flower sequins which looked very inviting but I ended up liking the simplicity of just the gingham paper and sentiment.

The bright colors of the Stampin' Blends are all the decoration needed for this one!

Circle spinners are super fun and easy!  You can find my video tutorial for them with lots of variations HERE.

Stamp Review Crew: A Little Wild Edition

Hello and welcome to a Stamp Review Crew blog hop that is a little wild (and a lot adorable)!  We are featuring the incredibly cute stamp set  A Little Wild.

I think this is a record for me to have participated in three hops in a row!  We had incredibly cold weather in the Midwest this past week.  Everything shut down meaning a bit more time to get some stamping done.  Plus there have been several new babies.  Perfect timing!

This set has images for the front and back views of the critters.  I wanted to take advantage of that and decided to make an offset accordion fold card so the little guys could be seen from both sides

The base is 5-1/2" X 12", scored at 4-1/4", 7-1/4" and 10-1/4"

Peeking around the corner!

The little bear is playing Hide and Seek... "You can't see me"!

Cute ending!  

So glad you were here for our wild little hop!  Please click on the buttons below to continue.
