Stamp Review Crew | Nailed It

Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop using the fabulous Nailed It stamp set.

If you are joining us for the first time we are a group of International Stampin' Up! demonstrators that show one Stampin' Up! stamp set at a time, every first and third Monday's of the month. Be sure to make your way around the hop by clicking 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.

Now, we choose the sets we are going to use for these hops up to 4 months in advance, so May is always a tough month for us. What we plan to use sometimes is retired before we can feature it, like the Build It dies that coordinate with this set. We decided to go forward with this set because the stamps are still available through May 22, 2017 at least (in the US and Canada only). And to provide ideas for those who already own the stamps and the dies. Enjoy!

I've gone with a bit of a feminine feel to my card today. With Mother's Day coming up I've been seeing around some of the stores the pink themed tool sets to make them a bit more pretty for the girls. Every girl needs a set of tools and why not have them pretty looking.

So that is where my card has gone today, a Mother's Day card with pink tools.

I've used the water colour pencils to colour the tools today using the Melon Mambo and basic Grey Pencils. I find when using the pencils that I like to pick up a bit of colour straight off the pencil using an aqua painter rather than colouring the image with the pencils. Picking the colour straight off the lead works better for me but if you like to put the colour down first by colouring straight on the cardstock then that's fine too. We do what works for us.

 I thought I would team the pink tools up with the Pop of Pink DSP that is also on the Retiring Products list. This has been my all time favourite DSP for 2016/2017 and I am really going to miss this one.I thought I would give it one last 'hurrah' before it is gone for good.

 If you are quick here in Australia you can still get it but it is on the Low Inventory List. Order it today so you don't miss out!

I've teamed up with the pink tools the Silver Foil Stitched Shapes circle embossed with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder that gives the embossing a 3-D look. Such a fabulous embossing folder and, yay, that one is staying in the 2017/2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. OH Yeah! 

I hope that I've given you another idea to use with the Nailed Stamp set. Here in Australia if you want the Nailed It stamp set you had better be quick because you can only get it now in Wood Mount and there are only a few sets left.

Now on to fellow Aussie, Bronwyn Eastley with her amazing creations. I'm sure you won't be disappointed with all her ideas.
