Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew blog hop! *The Stamp Review Crew is a group of International Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who want to show you how much you can do with ONE stamp set. Each edition the SR Crew will showcase a new featured stamp set. Each stop along the hop will show you a different idea, or ideas using that set!* Today we are hopping to bring you some inspiration for the beautiful First Frost stamp set.  This set is part of the gorgeous Frosted Floral Suite in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  It is perfect for occasions year round.  If you have already started the hop, you have come here from Nikki and her beautiful creation.

My first card pairs this set with the stunning Frosted Floral specialty dsp/ . This paper has a beautiful pearlized frosted look.  Trust me.  The picture doesn’t capture its true beauty.

First Frost: Wishing You All the Best - Center Stage Stamping

I cut a slightly smaller square of vellum to soften the dsp and layered a small Crumb Cake square that I ran through the Corrugated Textured Embossing Folder.I stamped the flowers and stems on Shimmer White card stock to carry over the shimmer.  The dark stem is actually cut from Copper foil and there is a bit of Copper Thread peeking behind the large flower.  The sentiment is stamped on vellum which is only adhered behind the flower. The edges of the card base were stamped with an image from the Timeless Textures set to give it a distressed look.

For my second card I had to pair this with what else but the Wood Textures dsp.  I seriously don’t know what I am going to do when this stuff retires.  I better start hoarding it soon! (Who am I kidding, I have already been hoarding it!)

First Frost: good cheer - Center Stage Stamping

I stamped the flower in Flirty Flamingo and the leaves in Lemon Lime twist and Tranquil Tide and cut them out with the coordinating Frosted Bouquet Framelits. I added some Champagne Shimmer Paint on the berries of the vellum sprig.  The sentiment label is wrapped with Linen Thread and layered on a Pool Party panel.

Thanks for stopping by!  I am sending you over to Holly for some more gorgeous inspiration!  Enjoy the hop and join me again to shine a spotlight on creativity!

  1. So beautiful! Love them both. The distress and the wood textures are such a great look paired with this set. I’m a hoarder of these papers too. LOL.

  2. These are so striking Mary. I love the wood DSP on your second. It really makes the sentiment panel pop! x
