Garden Hive: May Arts Hop


Hello! All week, the Stampendous team has been sharing fun and fabulous projects that use May Arts ribbon. My project today features a fabulous leaf trim that I just adore! And, since it's Dreamweaver Thursday, I've got a wee bit o' stenciling for you today too.


I used the new Garden Hive stamp for this card. I colored it with Prismacolor markers, and I chalked the background. The corners were rounded around the stamped image too. Next, I placed the Honeycomb stencil on to Mixed Media Paper and  sprayed it with Lemon Zest Dylusions spray, and then Pale Ale Memories Mist to tone down the vibrancy of the yellow.

Next, I cut a piece of Coral Rose My Colors Cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8" and I folded it in half to make the card base. I attached the stamped image and Honeycomb layer to the card base and added the May Arts vine trim to the bottom left corner. That's it for me today! Don't forget to visit all of the fabulous blogs listed below. The Stampendous Blog has all of the prize info, so be sure to stop there first. 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
