StampInsanity #14: Betcha Bottom Dollar!

It’s time for a sketch challenge with the Groovy Gurlz of StampInsanity!!! The sketch is based on the good ‘ol Benjamin. Have a look-see!


Check out that loooong rectangle! Perfect for throwin’ a fat check inside right???


I realized that I don’t use Beth’s fabulous sentiments enough, so I figured this was the perfect card to use one! Originally, I was going to use one of her fabulous characters…but I loved using the sentiment in the middle instead!


Isn’t it beautiful? The phrase, the different fonts… I just love this sentiment! I printed it on white cardstock and then sprayed it with Patina and Lily Pad Glimmer Mist. See the bit of sparkle? You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger.


I used papers from Prism, Basic Grey, and K & Co. I used the paper with the circles, to mimic the rest of the circles in the design. The floral paper was used because I loved hot the colors worked with the other papers. It’s not your typical romantic card. It’s sweet and happy and fun. And isn’t it nice to be joyful about love? Gene and I have officially been together for 10 years now. Wow! An entire decade! And I think that is totally something to celebrate and be joyful about!

It’s your turn now! It’s time for you to create something using this fun sketch! Link up your blog post to the StampInsanity blog for your chance to win free digis!!! Want some more inspiration? Check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! Have a great day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
