Decor Leaves

Hi there! Have you seen Stampendous' new Decor Stamps? If you haven't, you are in for a treat. These stamps are HUGE! They are 8x8 and filled with fantastic patterns. The Stampendous team will be featuring lots of projects this week that show how we've been "Falling for Decor Stamps," as that's our them for the week. My card today has the Decor Leaves. 



Supplies:
Stampendous:
DCR101: Decor Leaves Stamp
SSC1265: Fall Arrangement
FREG004: Chunky Clear Deep Impressions Embossing Powder
EP208: Ivory embossing Powder
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A
DCP1006: Fitted Frames Set B

Other:
Bazill Basics: Lentils & Thyme, Chocolate
Ranger: Distress Oxide Inks in Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade. Mini Blending Tools.
Imagine: Pinecone VersaColor, VersaMark Ink
May Arts Ribbon
Spray bottle with water.
Canson: Bristol Paper
Scotch: ATG Gun Adhesieve

Directions:
1. On Bristol paper, apply Distress Oxide Inks in the colors mentioned using the Mini Blending Tools in a circular motion.

2. When you are satisfied with the base colors, spritz with water to activate the oxidized look of the ink. Blot off excess water with a paper towel.

3. Ink a portion of the Decor Leaves stamp with Pinecone VersaColor Ink.

4. Leave the stamp on your work surface, and flip the colored Bristol paper on to the stamp and press. Because this stamp is so large, you may find it easier to stamp it upside down in this manner.

5. Emboss with Chunky Clear Deep Impression embossing powder.

6. Sprinkle more powder on to the piece while it is still hot and reheat. It is wise to work in small areas for this.

7. Repeat as desired. Try not to overheat any of the areas. This effect will look like droplets of rain.

8. Stamp a "Thanksgiving" and "Blessings" from the Fall Arrangement set on to Chocolate Bazzill cardstock with VersaMark Ink. Keep the words separate.

9. Sprinkle sentiments with Ivory Embossing Powder and heat set.

10. For the "Thanksgiving," use the Small K Fitted Frame to die cut, but cut it with the word close to the top of the die, rather than in the center.

11. For the "Blessings," use the Small B Fitted Frame to die cut, but cut it with the word closer to the bottom of the die.

12. Create the card base out of Lentils & Thyme cardstock, cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

13. Attach a piece of olive green chiffon chiffon ribbon to the stamped paper.

14. Attach stamped paper to the card base.

15. Attach the die cut sentiments to the card on the left side. Thanksgiving goes on the top side of the ribbon, and Blessings on the bottom. You can either tuck the pieces under the ribbon or trim the die cuts and butt it up against it. I have them off center from each other.

My friend Kristine is also sharing a project today. Please be sure to visit her blog, as well as the Stampendous Blog for more info on the fantastic new Decor Cling Stamps.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
