Stamp Review Crew: Festive Flurry Edition


Welcome to the first blog hop of the Stamp Review Crew!  We'll be featuring a stamp set on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of every month.  This month's set is the gorgeous Festive Flurry set that also has matching framelit dies!   You probably arrived here from the fabulous Kerry Willard Bray's blog.  Wasn't her project awesome?!  I love seeing all the beautiful projects everyone made.


I don't have this set yet, but a dear friend was kind enough to send me some images to play around with.  After making my card and looking through my fellow demos' projects, I am totally kicking myself for not investing in this one.  The snowflakes are amazing and the matching framelits to cut them out makes them so much more versatile!



I actually designed this card in my head before my happy mail from my friend arrived.  I was hoping that it looked as good on paper as it did in my head.  I believe it did too! :)   This is one of those sets that you just can't make a bad card with if you tried!   It's that awesome!



My blog is the end of the hop, but if you want to go through it again or if you didn't start at the beginning, be sure to go back to Heidi's blog!  She never fails to have fantastic projects to share.
