Floral Typewriter

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team will be sharing projects that feature the Spring Border Die collection. I need to apologize right away, as for some reason, I only have 1 photo of today's card.

Balancing Time

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing projects using some of the new 6" x 6" Cling Stamps . There are quite a few to choose from, and because of that, I decided to use 2 of them on today's project. I was very inspired by the Clock Collage stamp. Balancing time is always an issue, especially when you're a mom, a crafter, have a job, etc. I am sure that many of you are in the same boat that I'm in. I started off by applying a few shades of ink from Imagine.  I used VersaMagic in Turquoise Gem and Grapefruit, plus New Sprout Memento in the tear drop shapes applicators and just swiped the color across my journal. Next, I stamped the Clock Collage. Given that the stamp is a 6" x 6" square, and my journal is a rectangle, I had some holes around the edges that I needed to fill. Since there is already cracking in the Clock Collage stamp, I decided to use the Crackle stamp to fill in the gaps. I'll be using that Crackle stamp a whole l

I Adore You

Hello! It's FREEZING on Long Island! We just had a "bombocyclone" which is a ton of frigid winds, lots of snow, and an insanely low pressure system. Needless to say, even though Winter just started, I am more than ready to bid it adieu already. To keep my mind off things, I decided to make a card that features the adorable Acorn Baby Sprite from Aurora Wings . I wanted to stay away from all things winter, and I had printed out this little Sprite some time ago. I colored him up with my Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up. After I fussy cut the Sprite, I decided I wanted to play with some dies, so I found an Oak Leaf die from Stampendous and cut 2 of them into my card base. I then stamped the coordinating Oak Leaf Stamp  on the base with Golden Glitz Delicata Ink. You'll see that better in the next photo. After that, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to fit inside the base. I then applied
