Stampin' Addicts Retiring Stamps Blog Hop!!


Hi Stamping Friends!!
I'm so excited today to be participating in another Stampin' Addicts blog hop! They are they best!! So many talented stampers always participate. Speaking of talent, if you've been hopping already, then you just came from Betty's blog: Kitty Stamp, where she wowed you with her creativity using Nature's Nest. If you've just joined us, then welcome! Glad to have you hopping with us! If at anytime along the hop you get lost, you can check out the official blog roll list HERE at Stampin' Addicts.


When Yapha started looking for people to participate in the Retiring Stamps Blog Hop, I knew exactly what stamp set I just HAD to use... 


EXTREME ELEMENTS

Stamps:  Extreme Elements, Grunge Rock
Paper:  Soft Suede, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Beau Chateau DSP
Accessories:  Top Note Die, Elegant Lines EF, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Pinking Hearts Border, Pool Party Seam Binding, Chantilly Crochet Trim, Saffron Button, Linen Thread, Basic Pearls

I had so much fun making this card!! Typically Extreme Elements is my "go-to" boy set. But I wanted to broaden its use, so I decided to create a teen girl card. And I like it!! It really is a very fun set to use, with all the layering of stamp images and colors. Extreme Elements has been a favorite of mine for many years. It may be retiring from the SU! catalog, but it is going to stay on my shelf for a very long time!!


Stamps:  Extreme Elements, Smarty Pants
Paper:  Rich Razzleberry, First Edition DSP, Pacific Point, PP Patterns DSP, Summer Smooches DSP, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Accessories:  Circle Punch, Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon, Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon, Decorative Label Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Oval Punch, Buttons, Basic Rhinestones, Baker's Twine, Clip

I haven't scrapped in forever! And if you can't tell, I like to put LOTS of "stuff" on my scrap pages. This page is 8x8. My DD will be graduating from 8th grade in June, so we had her picture taken by my very dear high school friend. I love matching my scrap pages to the pictures, so I got the color inspiration for this page from my daughters shirt. And I loved the combo so much, I used it on my next card too!


Stamps:  Extreme Elements, Grunge Rock
Paper:  Pacific Point, First Edition DSP, Summer Smooches DSP, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Accessories:  Circle Punch, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies, Black Brads, Twill Tape

My 16yo DS loves bright colors, so I think this will be a great card for him. Plus, he plays bass, so he really does rock. :)  I hope you enjoyed my "extreme" projects. I sure enjoyed having you visit! The next blog you get to hop to is: STAMPIN' WITH PAULA where she is going to feature the Borderlines stamp set. Enjoy!!

Great job with this set! I love it, but you really freshened it up! Love it with the First Edition dsp and great pic of your DD!

Betty said...

Krystal, You always have such fun little details! The debossing on the first card is so unique and the twill tape on the last one is a great boyish embellishment. And your scrapbook page!! What a delightfully fun take on the stamps!! I am so glad that set is still available digitally.

Nice job highlighting this set. Love your color choices for each of these projects.

I have to admit, I like to put lots of stuff on my scrap pages too - they take hours to complete. Yours is great!

Your cards are amazing. I can't believe I overlooked this set for so long...I might have to just order it!

Lisa Young said...

I love all of the details on your projects. And your right about all of the boy cards. You did a great job creating a feminine card and scrap book page using this set!

WOw, great projects Krystal! I love all of your juicy colors and the layering of the images is fantastic. I just got my Extreme Elements last month, just in time I guess, lol!
