Candy Grab: Day 2 of 31

Greetings, Guys & Ghouls! It's Day 2 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today I have a card that uses a very appropriate stamp for's called Candy Grab and it's from Stampendous. I'm not sure if the skeleton threw them up in the air with joy, or they just fell out of a pinata. But either way, it's a fun stamp! My full instructions on how to recreate this card are below.

R296: Candy Grab
FREG037: Aged Marine Embossing Powder
FRC20: Hot Lime Fragments

My Colors Cardstock: Plum
Imagine: Craft Mat, VersaMark Ink, VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black
FaberCastell: PITT Pen- Small
Distress Oxide Inks: Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Beacon Adhesieves: Zip Dry Glue
Water Spritzer
Craft Foam


1. Stamp the image with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black on to Canson Mixed Media Paper.

2. Apply Distress Oxide Inks directly to craft mat, using the colors listed.

3. Spritz the inks with water to get them to oxidize.

4. Using a brush, apply the colors around the stamped image. Let dry.

5. If necessary, use a PITT Pen to go over some of the black lines that may have gotten faded by the Distress Inks.

6. Crop the image.

7. Create the card base out of Plum cardstock, cut to 5 1/2" x 8."

8. Apply VersaMark ink to 2 sides of the card base. Sprinkle with Aged Marine Embossing Powder, then Hot Lime Fragments.

9. Heat from underneath.

10. Repeat Steps 8 & 9 on the other 2 sides.

11. Attach a layer of foam to the image, and then adhere to the card base.

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
