Pink Your Christmas

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is sharing Christmas projects featuring stamps from the Pink Your Life collection. I used the Whisper Friends Gift Wrapping stamp for my card.

I stamped her with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black, and colored her in with Tombow Dual Brush Markers. I used a couple of Fitted Frames to die cut the colored image, as well as a mat.

The background of the card was super easy to make. I used the Fruitcake Kaleidacolor ink pad from Imagine. I simply rolled the colors on to my brayer, spritzed the brayer with some Ink Potion No. 9, (this helps the ink to move better and to blend) and then I rolled it on to my Mixed Media White Paper from Stampendous. Once it dried, I added my colored image and mat to the layer. My card base is red, and I added a line of Imagine's Tear It! Tape to the lower portion of the card, and added my all-time favorite glitter- Multi Crystal Glitter Mix. It's gorgeous. I also added a little sentiment from the Holiday Expressions stamp set.

That's my finished card. It came together nice and quick, which is super important at this time of year. Please visit the Stampendous Blog to see more Pink Your Christmas cards. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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
