Hello...

Have you seen or heard the news? I am part of the Stampendous! Design Team! I am beyond excited about this. Especially since Stampendous! now owns Dreamweaver Stencils. This is a match made in heaven, and I am so happy to be along for the ride. Stampendous! is pretty excited about their new acquisition, and they wanted to do a week of fun stenciling projects to show off some of the many things that they can do. 

So, how many stencils did I use for this card? 1? 2? Actually, I used 5! The beautiful Feather stencil is one, the Scales in my background, and then on the feather, I used the Spiral Dots, the I Beams, and the water from the Frigate stencil (the green portions) too! 


I started off by inking each of the colors on to the feather. Remember that when you do this, you need to mask off each section so that you don't put the wrong color in the wrong spot. After that, and leaving the feather stencil in place, I laid the various design stencils down where I wanted them (one at a time, of course), and inked them all with brown. My brown ink was a pigment ink, so it stays wet for a while, which makes it perfect for embossing. So I used clear embossing powder on top, to give it a nice sheen and some dimension. You can see it really well in the photo above. 


Then, I fussy cut the feather out, and laid it aside while I randomly stenciled my Scales right on to my card base in blue. I inked the edges of the card base, and laid my feather down where I was planning on adhering it. I wrote out the "hello," and then attached the feather (mostly with pop dots for dimension), at the end of the word so it would look as though the feather wrote the hello out. I hope you like my card. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring 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

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images. I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set  and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder. I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes
