Stampendous and Tombow Hop

Hello there! The Stampendous team is sharing projects using Tombow adhesives along with the new Stencil Duos. I loved using the Balloon Duo Stencil Set so much (see my post from Monday), that I decided to use it again this week!

I laid the pattern stencil on to my Mixed Media paper, taped it down, and then taped the balloon stencil on top of that. I used the fabulous pen that comes in the Stencil Duo set and traced the background image. Next, I removed the stencils, and colored the pattern in with Memento markers from Imagine Crafts.


Then I trimmed the balloon out, but I decided it needed a little sumpin' sumpin'... and hey! We're doing a Tombow Blog Hop, right? I used their cool Glue Pen to outline parts of the pattern on the balloon, and I sprinkled some Lime Micro Glitter from the Halloween Glitter Kit on top. I worked in small sections so that the glue didn't dry before I got the glitter on. It is holding the glitter beautifully! I also used the Glue Pen to adhere my thin twine (from May Arts) to the card. I drew a line directly on the card (this was the last thing I did on the card), and laid the twine down. Again, I worked in small sections. My sentiment was made from the upper portion of the Incredible You stamp.  I embossed it with Shabby White Embossing Enamel.

This card is kind of different from my usual style....very clean and simple, but I love it. I can imagine doing it over and over with all different colors. Hmmmm.....I may need to get on that! Be sure to check out the rest of the Stampendous gals that are posting today. Their links are below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Fun card! I love green.
What a fabulous design inside the balloon -love it! Love the sparkle the glitter adds, too. And I just love that sentiment!
I know they are traditional, but I love balloons on Birthday cards. I like the design they have with this set, but think about all the other ones you could use on such a big balloon. Very NICE card!

Thanks for sharing!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
