For My Friend

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing projects featuring the new Curios Stamps, as well as a small glimpse into our crafty spaces. The Curio stamps are meant to be displayed, so we wanted to show ours off! Today, my card features Birdie Friend.

I stamped the Birdie Friend with VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne, and colored it in with Zig Clean Color Markers. Then I gave it a loose fussy cut. I die cut the Large Q Fitted Frame out of lavender cardstock and inked the edges with Aquamarine Chalk Ink.

On pink cardstock, I inked up the Diamond Grid stencil with Worn Lipstick distress Oxide Ink. I also added some fabric washi tape to the side of my card, where the fold is. For some sparkle, I added just a few sequins from the Doodles Paper Playground Spring Fling Sparkle Blend.


This is my card in my craft room. I got this little unit from IKEA and it is just perfect for storing the papers and some other things I use frequently. So up on top with my card and Curio stamp is some pencils and specialty pens, as well as some sequins. Below that, I have some images that I have pre-colored, as well as backgrounds, precut borders, and pieces that are just waiting to be put on cards. The next level is printed out digis that I haven't colored yet. Next are the My Colors Cardstoks that I use for my Stampendous projects. Below that are the My Colors scraps. Last, are much older digis or stamped images that need to be colored. I use this little tower a LOT, and it has really helped me to stay organized.

So that's my card and a small portion of my crafting space. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more Curio projects. Thank 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…
