The Stamp Review Crew; Picture Perfect
Welcome to another The Stamp Review Crew Hop!! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who will be bringing you lots of ideas for one particular stamp set twice a month!! The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, you can hop along from one blog to the next gathering all kinds of inspiration for one Stampin' Up! stamp set. Please note the blog doesn't officially start until Monday November 21, 2016 so some of the links may not work.
If you are following the hop in order you just arrived from Kelly's BLOG where she showed you all something fabulous! We are featuring the Picture Perfect Photopolymer Stamp Set item #1405206 (pg. 140) from the Stampin'Up! catalog. This set is a lot of fun to create with however I had to laugh that this was the set we had for this weekend. Why, well because on Friday here in MN we got quite the snow storm!! We got about a 1' of snow here. I was on my way home from the Mayo from my check up with my specialist and drove home in it. It's normally a 5 hour drive but it took me 8 hours to get home....fist 2 1/2 hours were great then I hit the storm.....
Literally a Blizzard out!! It was really pretty even if you couldn't see to drive. lol
Snow was so deep the tow trucks were stuck it was hilarious.... well probably not for my mom since she was with me :)
The farther north I drove the worse it got. We actually were stuck on the freeway for 45 min because 3 semi's were jack knifed in the road...the snow in that area was about 18" deep. YIKES at one point I was starting to wonder if we were spending the night in the vehicle (it was the only time I thought WOW this was maybe not a good idea). lol There were lots of vehicles in the ditches, I myself went into the ditch but was able to get out, super slow going and it was one VERY long day. Would I do it again..... (yes mom I would) it was worth sleeping in my bed that night and it's another adventure I had ;)
So as you can see this was pretty funny for me to use this set and at first I struggled because after that I just couldn't come up with something summer at all. lol Then the light bulb went off....
How about snow covered roses? The blizzard and ice from my windshield actually inspired this card. lol So thanks for bearing with my story and anything really can be inspiration!! Not to easy to see in the picture but I stamped white craft ink onto the roses and leaves. This set make gorgeous roses, I used 3 different blues: Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Tempting Turquoise. I also paired it with the Timeless Textures Stamp Set.
Inside I stamped the images from Timeless Textures then added some Silver Glimmer Paper.
