February Bombshell GDT Challenge

Greetings once again! Today I have a Bombshell Stamps card to share with you. I made it for Ms. February’s challenge. Ms. February is Dawn Knight, and she asked us to do a color challenge (many of you know how much I lurve those!) We have to use Red, Turquoise, and Kraft…a combination that I adore!

Can I toot my own horn for a sec? I love this card. Love it. I am going to make it in a mess of different color combos…but all with the Kraft paper. Once I figured out what I wanted to do, it came together pretty quickly, so I think I can bang out a bunch of them fast. And put them in my Etsy shop, perhaps?

Pencils and watercolor markers were used for this…no surprise, right? I used 2 sets of Bombshell Stamps… Butterfly Queen and Pin-Stripes. Have I told you lately how much I enjoy using those Pin-Stripes???

My husband (who honestly really likes what I make) stopped. And looked. For a while. He really liked this card. His favorite color is red, so I ‘m not surprised. Hope he likes it in the other color combos I come up with!

So come and play along with us! This was a fantastic challenge. I’d love to see your creations! Have an inspiring day!!!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w
