Stamp Review Crew: Sprinkles of Life

Hello and welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop! This week's stamp set is the very versatile: Sprinkles of Life. Not only is this set wonderfully cute, but it also helps a great foundation, as part of the proceeds are donated to the Ronald McDonald Charity House.

If you're already hopping, then you just came from the talented Yapha Mason's blog. If you're just stopping in, no problem! Just start here and hop on through following the stamp review crew's buttons.

So as I mentioned before, the "Sprinkles of Life" stamp set is crazy, versatile. There is so much play room with this set and did I mention it has a co-ordinating punch!?! I love how you can create an ice cream cone, a cupcake, a tree, an apple tree, a rain cloud, a branch, a basket and so much more with just one stamp set! For my card today, I decided to create a sky view, with tree branches. I told you it was versatile!
First I started out by masking off some clouds. I used the coordinating Tree Builder punch for the cloud shape and sponge daubed Soft Sky ink all around them. I love this technique! I added in two branches: Soft Suede ink on Soft Suede cardstock and teardrop leafs of Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive cardstock.

The stamp set comes with a cute little birdie and I thought this mama bird needed a nest, so voila! Do you like my robin eggs? I created them with the punch as well, i just trimmed the tear drop and added in some speckles with my pool party marker on to the Pool Party cardstock. The nest is created with the 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon. All I did was frayed and frazzled it a whole lot and then tied it up into a little bunch. So Cute!

To finish my card off and to make my card and greeting work together, I repeatedly stamped the cloud image in Pool Party ink onto Pool Party cardstock.

Well, thank you for hopping in, I hope you enjoyed today's creation. Next up is the talented Mike Funke. Enjoy the rest of the hop!
