Flowering Feline & LB Icons

Hello again! This week, the Stampendous team is featuring project that use some of Laurel Burch's fantastic artwork. My card today uses quite a number of images, but I want you to take a good look at the Flowering Feline stamp. I immediately loved this one because the main part of the cat gets inked, as opposed to just an outline. I knew I needed to make it gold, so that I could go for a sort of cloisonne look. If you would like to learn how to make this card, check out my full instructions below. I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is "Anything Goes."

Supplies:
Stampendous:
LBV009: Flowering Feline
SSCL107: LB Icons
SSCL101: Floral Reflections Perfectly Clear Stamp Set
DP102: Detail Gold Embossing Powder
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Plum
Imagine: Kaleidacolor in Calypso, VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black, Ink Potion No. 9, VersaMark Ink
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: 021, 025, 027, 029, 030, 032, 033, 036, 040, 041, 042, 044, 050, 052, 070, 080, 082, 083, 202, 222
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ-Dots
Canson Mixed Media Paper
Brayer


Directions:
1. Stamp the Flowering Feline with VersaMark ink on to Mixed Media  Paper.

2. Emboss the cat with Detail Gold embossing powder.

3. Color in the image with the Zig Clean Color Markers listed.

4. Fussy cut the colored image.

5. Roll the brayer into Calypso Kaleidacolor inks and spritz with Ink Potion No. 9.

6. Roll the color on to Mixed Media White Paper and spritz more Ink Potion No. 9, if necessary. Let dry.

7. Trim the inked paper to 3 x 3/4" x 5 1/4."

8. Stamp the assorted borders on the inked paper using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Repeat borders as you wish. I repeated the fat diamond border several times to create a big block.

9. Stamp a sentiment from the Floral Reflections set in the lower right corner.

10. Stamp the small icon from the LB Icons set above the sentiment.

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

12. Glue all layers with EZ-Dots.


This card came together really quickly, even though it looks like it may have taken a long time. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Stampendous team over on the blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images.


I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder.

I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes set on to ve…

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 wall art. I cut a bi…
