Llama Curio

Hello hello! Today I am sharing a card I made with one of the newest Stampendous Curio stamps, the Llama. He is a fresh take on a llama that had come out previously, and this time, as I mentioned, he's a Curio stamp. That means that he's a wooden wooden sculptures ideal for decorating your crafting area or giving to crafty friends. On the back of each, you'll find a matching rubber stamp in the finest gray rubber, closely trimmed, with a foam cushion. Check out my card with the Curio stamp beside it.

You can see that the stamp is nice and big, so it's a perfect focal point for your creation. Here's a shot of just the card.

I wanted to go with a wintry feel for this card, so I stuck with aquas, teals, and greens for coloring the llama's presents and accessories. 

I created my background with Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean, and Broken China. I applied the colors in stripes with my Ink Blending Tools and then spritzed with water. I also added a bit of color to my craft mat after the first layer of color was dry, spritzed the mat with water, and put the cardstock into the wet ink to pick up the splotches. After that, I chose my sentiment from the new Holiday Wishes Perfectly Clear set and stamped it in Twilight VersaFine Clair Ink. Next I added 2 types of snowflakes from the Skating Penguins set with Delicata ink in Silvery Shimmer.

That's it for me today. I'll be back tomorrow with a new card featuring some Sparkle Blends! Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more fabulous creations. 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
