The Stamp Review Crew - Endless Birthday Wishes Edition

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2016/01/stamp-review-crew-endless-birthday.html

Yep! It's Monday! So that can mean only one thing! It's Stamp Review Crew Time!! Whoop Whoop! The crew have already have had one hop already for 2016 that I wasn't able to participate in so this is my first hop back for 2016 and I'm so excited to be back for the year! This review we are using a set that has been around for a bit but still amazing (what SU set isn't amazing, right?), Endless Birthday Wishes. This is a fabulous set with lots of words and a couple of images.

I've used the cake image for a bit of a chalkboard look and then cut a few of the words to give it a bit of a fun a modern feel. I used White Stampin' Emboss Powder rather than just stamping the image in Whisper White Craft Ink to give the image a clean and crisp look. Sometimes when you swipe the cardstock with the white ink for the chalkboard look, if you have stamped your image in ink it can smudge and I didn't want that to happen.


This was one of those cards that I had a lot of the pieces cut out already for another card that really wasn't coming together when I tried to make it round 1 but with a bit of a rethink and the use of another stamp set I was able to put it all together round 2. Some times if a card isn't coming to you put the pieces aside and an idea will come to you down the track to put it all together.
