Hope Anchors the Soul

Hello! The Stampendous team is finishing up the "Part of your World" monthly theme we had going this month. Our mini theme this week is "Yo Ho Ho." And you know what that means....pirates! I decided to use the new Nautical Anchor Perfectly Clear set, along with the Compass metal stencil. Full instructions are below. 

Supplies:
Stampendous:
SSC1261: Nautical Anchor Perfectly Clear Set
FMS4016: Compass Metal Stencil
DP111: Detail Black Embossing Powder
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper
DWNHB-9: 3/8" Stencil Brush
SSH46: Large Acrylic Stamp Handle

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Ocean Side
Zig Clean Color Markers: 063, 066, 090, 091
Imagine: Kaleidacolor in Denim, irRESISTable Spray in Gold, VersaFine ink in Onyx Black

Directions:
1. Cut a piece of Mixed Media Paper to 5 1/4" x 3 3/4."

2. Stamp the anchor and rope border with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black along the right side of the paper, near the edge.

3. Emboss the image with Detail Black Embossing Powder.

4. Color the image with the Zig Clean Color Markers listed.

5. Using a fine tipped scissor, trim the excess of the paper as close to the right edge of the image as possible.

6. Tape the Compass Stencil at an angle to the paper near the top. You may want to tape off the scroll so that you don't accidentally ink it.

7. Using a stencil brush and the Denim Kaleidacolor inks, apply color to the stencil. I started with the brown, then used the gray, then 1 of the blue shades. Do not go too heavy with the colors. Keep them soft.

8. Ink up a sentiment from the Anchor set using VersaFine ink, and heat emboss with Detail Black in the lower right corner.

9. Spritz the Mixed Media Paper with Gold irRESISTable Spray and let dry.

10. Cut the card base out of Ocean Side cardstock to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

11. Glue the stamped and stenciled layer to the card base.

Love that nautical anchor - gorgeous! And a lovely card.
I absolutely love this card! It would be a great masculine card but even a woman can love it!

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
