Whisker Graphics Hop- Chive Chewing


Hello and welcome! The Stampendous team is collaborating with Whisker Graphics this week, and WOW! Their Divine Twine is just that...divine! And I adore their tags. I used their gray tag today, and the color is fabulous! We've got prizes up for grabs, and you can get the full details on the Stampendous Blog


I shared a project yesterday that featured Whisker Graphic's Divine Twine (I just couldn't wait to share it!), so please check out that post too. But first, today's project. Check out the cute Chive Chewing House Mouse stamp. 

Supplies:
Stampendous: 
HMH04: Chive Chewing 
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A
DCP1006: Fitted Frames Set B
DWLX7013: Pinwheel Checkerboard Stencil
PK03: Gemstone Pearl Lustre Embossing Kit
EI101: Boss Gloss Embossing Ink with Dauber
ASCRS03: Industrial Stamp Set
SSC1239: Spring Sentiments
MPW811: Mixed Media Paper
Acrylic Stamp Handle
STF082: Onyx Black VersaFine Ink

Others:Tombow Dual Brush Markers: 491,158, 126, 676, 623, 850, 761, 990, 942, 947, 977, 992, N75, N89
My Colors Cardstock: Plum, Grasshopper
Imagine Crafts: Honeydew Ultimate Metallic Ink
Color Box: Chestnut Roan Ink
May Arts: Ribbon
Whisker Graphics: Tag
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dy Glue


Directions:
1. Stamp Chive Chewing Stamp with VersaFine ink in Tuxedo Black on to Mixed Media Paper. Color using Tombow Dual Brush markers using the direct-to-paper method using the colors listed in the supplies. 

2. Die Cut the completed image using a die from the Fitted Frames Set A. I then used a larger die from Set B and Plum colored cardstock to create a mat. Ink the Plum mat with Honeydew metallic ink. 

3. Using a white tag, lay the Pinwheel Checkerboard stencil on top, and apply the embossing ink from the dauber all over the tag. Don't go for perfection. Getting the basic shape of the stencil is good enough for this tag. Next, using Tanzanite embossing powder from the Gemstone Kit, heat emboss the powder over the entire tag. 

4. Using the "Metal" stamp from the Industrial set, apply to a clear block and ink with Chestnut Roan ink. Apply over the entire tag. You can wipe off excess (where it's been embossed) with a tissue.

5. Die cut the smallest frame from Set B with Grasshopper cardstock, and stamp the sentiment using Tuxedo Black. Ink the edges with Chestnut Roan. 

6. Using Zip Dry Glue, add your elements to the tag. Finish off with a piece of olive green May Arts ribbon.

Love that HM image!!! So sweet. I'm not totally sure mice really chew on chives, but that's okay....the real ones also aren't near as cute as the HMeeses are.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful tag. It's so pretty in purple with the stenciling!

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
