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!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
