Stamp Review Crew | Christmas Pines

Welcome, welcome! We have a very festive Stamp Review Crew blog hop for you today showcasing Christmas Pines. A fabulous layering stamp set with some fabulous sentiments and a co-ordinating thinlit set.

If you are joining us for the first time we are a group of International Stampin' Up! demonstrators that show one stamp set at a time, every first and third Monday's of the month. Be sure to make your way around the hop by click the next button at the bottom of each post. If you get lost along the way click on the banner at the top of each post and that will lead you to the list of hoppers so you can continue seeing all the fabulous creations.

I've gone with a gift box creation for you today.  You can never have too many gift box ideas, especially at this time of year.

I've gone back to an oldie but a goodie Envelope Punch board gift box. I put in the measurements in of the size of the box I wanted in to the Box Buster over at The Crafty Owl to figure out where to put the first and second punches to get my box started.  Its such and easy box to make, especially of you have to make lots of them.

I've used 12"x12" Basic Gray cardstock and heat embossed the starry stamp with Copper Stampin' Emboss powder. The copper looks fabulous on the grey! Love it!

I've used one of the sentiments and some of the other images t make a chalkboard looking tag. Love, love, love the chalkboard technique. It's such a stunning look and so easy to do.

The other tag I stamped with Real Red and then fussy cut it out. I then used the Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder for the 'Noel' fussy cut that out and then adhered it to the swirly tag.  All finished off with some Gold 1/8" ribbon, Gold Metallic Thread, Mini Jingle Bells and  a spray of the Pine needles from the Pretty Pines Thinlit Dies.

Next up on the hop is the oh so fabulous and fellow Aussie, Kelly Kent. Love her creations!!
