Planning January


Hello! Every month, I like to print out a calendar for myself that has room for me to write about the Design Team projects that I need to have done, and important dates/events to remember. There are so many printable calendars available online. Just do a quick Google or Pinterest search, and you are sure to find a ton. I printed the one I used because I loved the sweet florals on it. I just used regular printer paper.

I decided that Versa Magic inks were perfect to mimic the soft, painterly flowers because of their chalk-like finish. And to go along with the inks, I used the new Journal Bullets set from Stampendous to embellish the calendar.

I started off just stamping some of the images that I liked on days that we have little events happening. But, the imaged needed a bit more punch, so I decided to color them in using the VersaMagic inks and Fantastix.

Just by lightly rubbing the Fantastix against the ink pad gives you plenty of ink to work with. I colored the images with contrasting colors, and then they stood out nicely.

Looks like I don't have too much happening at the end of the month! Guess I'll need to make some plans. I love how simple it is to embellish life's every day tasks and events to make them all exciting and fun. I hope you'll give this a try!

Versa Magic Ink: Night Sky, Pink Petunia, Muted Mauve, Sage, Tea Leaves, Sahara Sand, Pink Grapefruit, Pretty Petunia, Thatched Straw

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
