Happy Birthday Janelle!

Hello! I have an extra post for you today because the Stampendous team is celebrating a very special day. It's Janelle Stollfus' birthday! She is in charge of keeping our collaborations on track, as well as the Stampendous Blog, and helps to field questions for the team. Plus, she of course makes many, many wonderful projects for Stampendous, and we all just love her. We wanted to share some birthday well-wishes for her. Here's the card I made.

I love love the Balloon Stencil Duo. I have used it a few times already. There are lots of Stencil Duos available, and they all mix and match really well. I used the accompanying pen to draw out the balloon, and I colored it in with Memento Markers from Imagine Crafts.

I stamped out my Happy Memories sentiment and heat embossed it with Amethyst PEARLustre embossing powder. Then, I drew in the string with my Tuxedo Black irRESISTables Pico Embellisher, also from Imagine Crafts. Please be sure to visit all of the gals wishing Janelle a happy birthday today. Happiest of birthdays, Janelle!!!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
