Do You Wanna Build a Snowman with Dreamweaver?

The Stampendous team has been building snowmen all week, and since it's Dreamweaver Thursday, we will be using some fabulous stencils with today's projects. Today, my card features the Whispered Wishes stamp and the Chevron Background stencil.

I colored these sweet friends with my Chameleon Pens. This is a great image for those pens. I also love that this image has a sentiment built right in. Making your finished card is that much easier because of it. And, you can always not ink the sentiment if you don't want to use it...or only ink the sentiment. Lots of options here!

For the Chevron Background, I used the super fun and sparkly Double Glitter Technique. You can check out a video tutorial HERE. It's really easy, and the effect is fantastic!

On my card base, I sprayed a little green Dylusions spray. This is a pretty quick card to make. From the ease of the Chameleon Pens, to the simple Double Glitter technique, and just a couple of spritzes of color. Please be sure to check out the rest of the gals posting today. Their links are below. Thanks 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
