It's the 1st Monday of the month and that means it's time for the Stamp Review Crew. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators focused on sharing a ton of ideas featuring a single stamp set. This week it's a set called Jingle All The Way. This set is a companion stamp set to the Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies. You can save 14% by purchasing the two as a bundle. You have likely come from Betty Traciak on your way through this amazing hop. If you get lost, simply click on the banner for a list of participants and get back on track.
I know I say this about just about every card I make, but this set was not easy to use. I mean LOOK at the set! It's little images - lots of them! Oh sure, I could have used it WITH the Edgelits, but then that wouldn't have shown you a unique way to use this set. And after all, the Stamp Review Crew is all about showing you different ways to use a stamp set. I hope you find my take unique.
Step by Step tips:
- I used my 1" paper punch to punch out 12 squares of Designer Series Paper - 4 squares of 3 different papers.
- I selected one pattern of DSP and stamped the same image on all four squares using VersaMark® ink and Gold Embossing powder. Repeat this for the other two DSP squares. By doing this it males it a lot easier to arrange the squares on the card front without having the same image or pattern together.
- Lay out the twelve squares on the card front to get a feeling for the spacing. Then start gluing! I did all four corners first, and then filled in the middle.
- The sentiment was stamped on the same series of DSP. Then I used the curve from the Sleigh Ride Edgelits set, cropped off the ends and mounted iy using Dimensionals. Easy!
