Stamp Review Crew Brings You: Still Scenes

Still Scenes!  An adorable snow globe themed bundle!

The Stamp Review Crew, a group of stampers from around the globe that love Stampin’ Up! products,  is hopping and featuring the Still Scenes Bundle from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  Although not required, the Snow Globe Shaker Domes and Snowflake Sequins are a must-have combination to make the snow globe scenes pop! 

You can purchase the Still Scenes Bundle and supporting embellishments via my online store by clicking on the photos above.  You can view the Snowflake Sequins and add them to your card by clicking here.

I am continuing with my #madforplaid obsession!  If you joined us for the last hop showcasing Winter Woods, you would have seen more creations using the Buffalo Check Background stamp that I have incorporated into this Still Scenes snow globe featuring a northwoods feel.

Cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the Buffalo Check Background Stamp in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Real Red Cardstock. Note: It may take a few applications to get good coverage on the black ink.

Cut down to 4 x 5 1/8, following the edges of the check pattern.

Use a die-cutting and embossing machine to crop the following pieces using the Snow Globe Scenes Dies::

  • Crop the Buffalo Check piece for the Snow Globe Shaker Dome using the coordinating die, saving the cropped die-cut.  Adhere the Snow Globe Shaker Dome to the backside. Add Snowflake Sequins, set aside. 
  • Crop the tree scene in Shimmery White Cardstock.  Color with an Aqua Painter and Garden Green Classic Ink.  Add Snowfall Accents Puff Paint and activate with a Heat Tool.
  • Crop the bears in Basic Black Cardstock. Adhere to the trees with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere to the cropped die-cut from above (Buffalo Check).  Position and tape in place behind the Snow Globe Shaker Dome. Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
  • Zip through a piece of Basic Black Cardstock tucked inside the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  Crop three pieces with the die for the snow globe base.  Adhere them together with Snail Adhesive. Wrap with Linen Thread. Tie a bow of Linen Thread and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot.  Adhere below the Snow Globe Shaker Dome with Mini Glue Dots. 

Stamp the sentiment (Itty Bitty Christmas) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic Black Cardstock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess, and set with a Heat Tool. Crop with the Classic Label Punch, snip the ends to obtain a straight edge. Adhere with Snail Adhesive.

So, who else loves Buffalo Check as much as I do?  and I love it as a Snow Globe with a mom and baby black bear.

Do you struggle with masculine cards?  I hear that a lot, but masculine cards are some of my favorite to create…it may be because of the way I was brought up (horses, hunting, and more) so they come easier to me, not sure, but I truly hope I am inspiring others to help create more masculine creations.

Merry Moose Christmas Banner & Boxes

The Stampin’ Up! 2019 Artisan Design Team has so many amazing creations for you to see!  I hope that you take the time to check out all 16 blogs!  This blog hop will feature creations using one of the following bundles from the 2019 Holiday Catalog:  Gather Together, Holly Jolly Christmas, Snowman Season,  Frosted Foliage, and Christmas Gleaming!

Ever since I spotted that adorable Merry Moose Bundle (item 153015) in the 2019 Holiday Catalog, I just knew I had to pair it with the Buffalo Check Background Stamp (item 147794). I started creating my banner by using the Buffalo Check Stamp along with the Stamparatus (item 146276) to stamp Sahara Sand Classic Ink (item 147117) onto a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock (item 121043). I trimmed the image to size and cut into 3 even pieces, flagging the end with the Banner Triple Punch (item 138292).

I then used Gold Foil Sheets (item 132622) that were scored/folded in the middle to adhere the flagged banners to a 4 ft (merry) and 5 ft (Christmas) piece of Gold 3/8” Metallic Edge Ribbon (item 144146) with Tear & Tape Adhesive (item 138995).

I distressed the edges of the flagged banner pieces using a Stamping Sponge (item 141337) and the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink Pad (item 150711) I then cut 16 pieces of Gold 3/8” Metallic Edge Ribbon to adorn the space between each flagged banner.  I secured them in place with a Mini Glue Dot (item 103683) and a bow of Linen Thread (item 104199).

I used the Lined Alphabet Stamp Set (item 145908) to stamp the “Merry Christmas” in Versamark Ink (item 102283) onto Gold Foil Sheet pieces. I I then covered with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109130) and set with a Heat Tool (item 129053). I snipped them out with Paper Snips (item 103579) and adhered them to the flagged banner pieces with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (item 144108).

The Gold Foil Sheets, Sahara Sand Cardstock and Ink, as well as the Simply Scored Scoring Tool (item 122334), were used to create the rosettes that enhanced the ends of the banner.   A ½” Circle Punch (item 138299) created the Gold Foil circle that covers the center of the rosette.  The moose were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (item 132708) and Delicata Golden Glitz Ink, then cropped with the coordinating Moose Punch (item 150652).  The tree was also stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, then was snipped with Paper Snips. A double bow of Linen Thread was added to the tree for a final touch.

My trio of Gold Mini Pizza Boxes (item 152068) were all given a rustic makeover by adding a bit of distressing in three different ways, each way is explained below. Each Mini Pizza Box was adorned with a Gold Foil tag created with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and Detailed Trio Punch (corner rounder).  The moose, sentiments, and trees were all stamped and created using the same steps as those used to create the rosettes (above).  All tags were topped with a piece of Gold 3/8” Metallic Edge Ribbon and a bow of Linen Thread.

My 1st Gold Mini Pizza Box was distressed with a sand block to remove the glossy finish.  It then paired well with bits of Gold Foil Sheets and a square of Sahara Sand Buffalo Check.  The finishing touches were added via Gold Metallic Pearls (item 146282).

My 2nd Gold Mini Pizza Box was again distressed with a sand block to remove the glossy finish.  I then stamped it with the Buffalo Check Background stamp using Versamark Ink and setting the Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder with a Heat Tool.  The moose was attached to a rosette created from a Gold Foil Sheet.

My 3rd Gold Mini Pizza Box was distressed by using a Stamping Sponge to liberally add Delicata Celestial Copper Ink (item 150707) and Soft Suede Ink (item 147115) to it. I then covered it completely with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it with a Heat Tool, giving it a brassy finish. 

Which do you love the most? I hope I have inspired you to create yourself some country-themed/rustic Christmas Décor with phenomenal Stampin’ Up! Products.

Large outlined maple leaves: 

Stamp the leaves in Jet Black Stazōn Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock. 

Set out three Clear Block B (or one large size) and gently sprinkle Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Daffodil Delight in separate areas.  One color at a time, grab a small amount with an Aqua Painter and add the color to the leaf. Re-apply as needed until you obtain the desired effect. 

Crop with the coordinating Gathered Leaves Die and a die-cutting and embossing machine. 

Small Leaves:

Spray a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with water from a Stampin’ Spritzer. Gently sprinkle Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Daffodil Delight onto the wet cardstock.  Spritz again until you obtain the desired effect.  Set aside to dry or set with a Heat Tool. 

Crop with the dual purpose dies (they emboss and cut), strategically laying them onto the cardstock to grab a mix of colors.

Both my scrapbook page and my gather together greeting card use Very Vanilla Cardstock (my card looks like Whisper White in the photo below…sorry, it is hard to photograph and edit without changing the beautiful colors of the leaves). 

I love how the Pigment Sprinkles on the leaves look so much like the leaves that are changing in the fall.   It was so easy to do!  Just be cautious with the sprinkles, as they are very rich in color and hard to contain in one place. 🙂
