Friends Remain in Our Hearts

Hello! I have a card about friendship to share with you today. It uses a small stamp to create a background, and a large sentiment stamp for the focal point. All of my instructions are below.

SSC1254: Safe Travels Perfectly Clear Stamp Set
DCP1006: Fitted Frames Set B
STF082: Onyx Black VersaFine

Imagine: VersaMagic: Aspen Mist, Night Sky, Sheer Shimmer Spritz: Sparkle
Zig Clean Color Markers: 028, 082, 230, 260, 302
My Colors Cardstock: Ocean Side
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry Glue
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Piece of scrap Watercolor Paper with inks, sprays, etc. on it

1. Take a scrap piece of watercolor paper that has overspray, inks, etc on it (mine had Color Burst) and die cut it with the small "H" Fitted Frame.

2. Ink the sentiment with VersaFine ink and stamp on to the die cut.

3. Ink the edges of the die cut with Night Sky VersaMagic.

4. Using Canson Mixed Media Paper, cut a piece to 5 1/4" x 3 3/4."

5. Stamp the flying hearts stamp all over the Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine.

6. Color the hearts and wings using Zig Clean Color Markers using the colors listed above.

7. Spray with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle.

8. Ink the edges with Aspen Mist VersaMagic.

9. Create the card base out of Ocean Side cardstock. Cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

10. Glue all pieces together using Zip Dry Glue.

Cards that are just about appreciating friendship are so special in my opinion. They go beyond the average birthday or holiday card. It's a special token of how you feel about someone, and is often unexpected, which is the best part. Thanks for stopping by! Have an inspiring day.

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

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
