Stamp Review Crew – Happy Scenes

SRC-Happy-Scenes-banner

Hello and welcome. It’s the first Monday of the month (or will be shortly) and time for another edition of the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop. On the first and third Monday of each month our group of international Stampin’ Up demonstrators bring you our take on a specific stamp set in the catalog.

This week we’re showing ways to use the Happy Scenes stamp set. This set has a coordinating window framelit and makes adorable cards – like looking at scenes through a window. However, being a member of this team is teaching me to “think outside the box”. The enormously talented members of our team are always coming up with unique ideas for the stamp sets we feature. So I decided to skip the framelit and make a shaker card.

I used card sketch #264 from the Paper Players Challenge. I paired the image with some paper from the gorgeous Into the Woods designer paper. The “fluff” inside the shaker card is Flower Soft. Now there are several ways to make your own version of this embellishment, including using your grater to grate our card stock. This is a great way to do it because you know it will match your inks and papers. However, I have had this jar for years and it’s still almost full. I did a major purge earlier this year, so now I’m trying to use up whatever’s left.

Here is a close up of the image inside the shaker. It’s a little hard to get a picture without glare.

I hope you like my card. Now it’s time to see what great ideas Dawn has for us.

    What a great idea to grate cardstock! I sometimes find sequins to be a little too shiny for some shaker cards. Beautiful card!

  8. Nikki Spencer says:

    Nancy, your gorgeous Autumn scene is awesome, so realistic! Love that you’ve used Flower Soft vs sequins/glitter etc. Thanks for the tip on grating…Now that is a cool idea..:0)xx

    Genius! Love the overall design of your card and the way you created the shaker.

    Thank you so much for the Flower Soft answer. I can’t afford to buy it and didn’t know if I could match our colors. How would suggest I make snow? I’ve thought of SU’s glitter or embossing powder. I can come up with good ideas once in a while but can’t think of snow. I live in Fl. I don’t see snow.

  13. WOW – I’m learning so many new things in the hop today. Grating cardstock. Awesome. Going to try it! TFS
