The Stamp Review Crew - Happy Scenes

Welcome to the Happy Scenes Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop.  We are a group of international Stampin' Up! demonstrators that love to share just how much you can do with one stamp set.

As I was preparing for this hop I was really lacking mojo and feeling a tad 'rusty'.  Nothing seemed to go right creating projects for this round (won't bore you with the details).  However, because I absolutely LOVE participating in The SRC Blog Hops and had to pull out of the last one due to the busyness of life, I was determined to ink up Happy Scenes and give it a go.  I finally ended up with two cards to share with you today.


1.  Stamping on a Photo

Have you ever stamped on a photo?  I love how it creates an instant background.  A few years ago I stamped quite a few sunrise/sunset photos with silhouette stamps and loved how they turned out.

My hubby and I were at Cradle Mountain, Tasmania this winter and were fortunate enough to experience the first snowfall for the season.  I took heaps of photos and chose the one below to create a Happy winter Scene -

The tree images were stamped with Early Espresso Ink onto the bottom right hand corner of the photo and the image was cropped to fit behind the die cut window.  The embossed bricks were sponged with Tip Top Taupe and Perfect Plum Ink.



2.  A Luminary Card


      
A centre step card was used as the base of my second card and I punched out a circle in the middle panel so the battery operated tealight could shine through.  The embossed bricks were sponged with Tip Top Taupe and Soft Sky Ink.  The vellum DSP is from the new Holiday Catalogue.

I hope you're enjoying the SRC Blog Hop!

Stamping on photos is one of those techniques I never think to do. Great job - very creative.
