Hello and welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop. This is my first one and I'm so honoured and excited to be taking part. It was such a lovely surprise to have been invited by Tanya Boser to join and be part of a wonderful team of talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world.
The Stamp Review Crew is featuring the super fun Nailed It stamp set.
For those who are new to the Stamp Review Crew, here is a little background. We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that gets together on the first and third Mondays of every month to do a blog hop. Each hop features a single stamp set to give you loads of inspiration for that set! The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog, and you will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop whenever you want! And you can click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also.
If you are following along in order, you arrived from the fabulous Heide Baks. Love her work!
I have made a Card in a box pop up as it would be a great way to showcase all the fun elements of the set and have a kind of custom made tool box. This is the Card in a box pop up in free form.
The photo below, I decided to tie the flaps down with linen thread, as it helps to make it look more of a tool box and keeps it all neat.
The Nailed It Stamp set was featured in the Occasions catalogue early in January and fortunately I was able to grab it then, as sadly the framelits dies are no longer available. However, you are still able to fussy cut out the stamped images with the exception of the nuts and bolts.
I have utilised these wonderful papers to decorate the project. The hexagon dynamic textured embossing folder has been used on the card base giving it an extra texture and interest and is currently available and is amazing!
The tools in the set has been stamped with black Stazon ink on Silver foil as it's quick drying and has better grip than the dye inks. Urban Underground dsp has been used for the handles.
The sentiment has been white heat embossed on basic black cardstock and die cut out with the frame from the set.
Here's a top view of all the inner workings of the card in a box with the bars that holds all the goodies in place.
It can be folded flat and fits in an A2 or C6 envelope.
I have used the Stampin' Up! clear acetate envelope to seal it in and ready and perfect for the post.
It is sad that this wonderful set is retiring as it's perfect for making masculine cards and has so many creative ways that it can be used. Changing the colours up can be made for the ladies too. If you like this set, be sure to purchase it before it's gone for good. I hope you enjoyed and found inspiration. Next on the blog hop is the wonderfully talented Rochelle Blok. I love her work and I'm sure you will too! Thank you for stopping by, till' next time Happy Crafting! :)
