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!
