Hello!  Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Window Shopping stamp set.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first and third Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set.  The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces.  By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!

To see the line up of artists for this week's hop, click here.  If you've already joined the hop and are traveling forward, you've arrived from Karen's blog where you were presented with an amazing project to inspire your creativity.  If you're traveling backwards through the hop, you've seen Holly's project and are ready to CASE! (Copy And Share Everything)

I have three projects to share with you.

My first project uses the window box framelit decorated with a daisy.  It doesn't really need a whole lot of embellishment because the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper is so bright and shiny.


Supplies I used for this project -- 

Stamps:  Window Shopping, Daisy Delight; Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink; Cardstock:  Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White; Designer Series Paper:  Foil Frenzy Specialty; Embellishments:  Clear Faceted Gems; Adhesives:  Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Multipurpose Liquid; Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Daisy punch, Big Shot w/Magnetic Platform, Window Box Thinlits

Rather than decorate three boxes, I decided to see if I could use the thinlits included with the Window Box Thinlits to create cards.  This first card uses one of the smaller thinlits that was designed to die cut a side of the window box.  The colors you see under the die cut birthday candles are ribbons:  Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral, and Island Indigo Ombre for the candle bodies and Crushed Curry Mini Chevron for the flames.  Lining up the ribbons and the Pick A Pattern Washi tape is easy when you use Grid Paper.


Supplies I used for this project -- 

Stamps:  Window Shopping; Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Bermuda Bay; Stampin' Write Markers:  2017-2018 In Color (Lemon Lime Twist), 2016-2018 In Color (Dapper Denim), Subtles (Calypso Coral); Cardstock:  Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Gold Foil Sheets; Embellishments:  Calypso Coral Ombre ribbon, Island Indigo Ombre ribbon, Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon, Crushed Curry Mini Chevron ribbon, Pick A Pattern Washi Tape; Adhesives:  Fast Fuse, Mini Glue Dots; Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Classic Label Punch, Grid Paper, Big Shot w/Multipurpose Platform, Window Box Thinlits

This last project took a little more time as I used the window box lid thinlit to create a mask (from Window Sheets) that I utilized in two ways:  the first was for applying embossing paste and the second was for sponging color onto the dry embossing paste.
