    Stamp Review Crew Brings You: Winter Woods

    Winter Woods and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    Winter Woods! I absolutely LOVE this Stamp Set and coordinating dies!

    The Stamp Review Crew, a ground of stampers from around the globe that love Stampin’ Up! products,  is hopping and featuring the Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set!  This stamp set has a coordinating die set called Into the Woods.  Although the cards created below are not new, they are my most popular Pinterest Pins for a year’s running.  Since I ran out of time to create something new (story of my life these days it seems) I decided to re-share these creations in case you may have missed them the first go-round. 

    Winter Woods and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

    Good News!  The True Gentleman Buttons are back in the CLEARANCE RACK and marked down to $2.80!  What a steal!  I used them on both of my card creations as they pair so well with the Winter Woods and Buffalo Check Stamp Sets. 

    • With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.
    • Cut a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock to 5″ x 2 1/2″.  Stamp the Birch Trees in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    • Cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Using the Stamparatus, stamp the Buffalo Check in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink as many times as needed for desired coverage.  Cut down to two 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″, using the check pattern as a guideline.  Crinkle/distress the edges. Wrap 4 loops of Linen Thread around one of the pieces.  Adhere a True Gentleman Button (with Linen Thread) with a Mini Glue Dot.  Adhere as shown with Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    • Crop the Merry with a Big Shot and Basic Black Cardstock.  Snip Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to size and adhere to the card.
    • Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the pine tree, deer and sentiment onto Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Crop the pine tree and deer with the coordinating framelits and a Big Shot.  Snip the sentiment to size with a Paper Snips.  Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

    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.

    Happy Monday Everyone! The Global Design Project has an awesome color challenge for you this week!  I love this color combination, it can fall into masculine and rustic, two of my favorite categories.  I feel the Beautiful Baubles Bundle from the 2018 Holiday Catalog is getting overlooked and it needs some love.  So…I whipped together this card, paired with Shimmer Paint and Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper for a stunning result. Agree?
