Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?

Ugh, I can't even believe I used that title....as now that darn song is going to be stuck in my head for days. Not really a huge fan of the film, although it is beautiful, and I do like Olaf. Speaking of the little snowman, this week, the Stampendous team is sharing various projects made with snowmen. And I've got one to share with you today. I used the Build a Snowman set (no, really! That's what it's called!)

I built these 2 friends using several of the stamps in the set. 6 total, plus the sentiment. I also used 5 snowflakes from the set on my card base.

I colored the snowmen with Prismacolor markers, and 2 Spectrum Noir markers. I created the clouds (or crazy avalanche?) using the Picasso Stencil from Stampendous/Dreamweaver. I used Tumbled Glass ink for that. I used a Spellbinders die to cut that funky shape out.

I heat embossed my snowflake background with Sparkle Puff embossing powder. It has just enough dimension, coupled with just enough glitter. That's all for me today.  A couple of other gals are posting today, and the Stampendous Blog will have a list up tomorrow. But today, please visit the ladies 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
