The Stamp Review Crew - Watercolour Wings Edition

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2015/07/stamp-review-crew-watercolor-wings.html


 Shh!!! Did you hear that?? It's the sound of silence! My kids went back to school today after 3 weeks off for their winter break. I love having them home from school and the break from routine that we don't have to be out the door so early. But the weather these holidays was so wintry and cold (well it is winter but I was hoping for a few clear days) that we ended up being indoors for most of the time and the dreaded 'I'm bored, there's nothing to do' and me entertaining them most of the time. SO today is a perfect day to do some uninterrupted crafting and blogging.

Today is also the third Monday of the month so that means it's time for another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop.  This hop we are using the absolutely beautiful Watercolor Wings Stamp set with matching Framelits!!! WOOHOO!  When I first saw this set in the catalogue I gasped. It is stunning! And by the looks of it out in Pinterest land everyone else loves it too!

This is also one of the stamp sets that you can recieve a discount when you purchase the coordinating stamps and accessories together, saving you 15%. Who doesn't love a saving??!!

For those hopping along for the first time, we are a group of International Stampin' Up! demonstrators and we have a blog hop of the first and third Monday of each month. Each hop showcases one stamp set and we like to show you lots of different creative ways to use it!
Remember, if you get lost on the hop click on the banner at the top of this post and this will give you the list of all the 'hoppers' in The Stamp Review Crew.


I've created a frame to put up in my crafting space because I love this stamp set so much. 
 And I've kept the colours quite simple as to not make it all too busy.


I saw an idea of some butterflies in a frame on a recent trip to Ikea with my kids during their school holidays. The butterflies then gave me an idea to do something in a frame with the Watercolor Wings Butterflies.  I love where my inspiration comes from because sometimes it's so random like seeing a colour combo on wrapping paper or seeing something in Ikea that had butterflies on it. I see Stampin' Up! everywhere.


The background paper is the new Color Me Irresistible Speciality DSP. The coloured sheets have an embossed look and then you can colour the white sheets to make the patterns pop. It is beautiful paper! That's for sure!


The butterfly in the middle I've embossed with gold Stampin' Emboss powder and then the used heat and stick powder and Gold Stampin' Glitter for the centre of the butterfly. That glitter sure does go everywhere and sticks to everything!



The other butterflies I've just used the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and some Gold and Silver Metallic Thread.




I really love how the frame turned out and it looks stunning sitting on top of my Ikea Kallax storage unit. For those wanting to know where I got my frame from, I picked this beautie up from Kmart (Aust.) in the Scrapbooking section. 
Now on to another Aussie, Nikki Spencer. Click on the 'Next Blog' button below to 'hop' on to her blog. Make sure you welcome her as it's her first hop with The Stamp Review Crew!

  9. Rochelle, this is a beautiful 3D project. I think we rarely thing of using stamps and cut-outs to create decorative accents. You have inspired me to buy a square frame and get "Framelit"ing.
