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!

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.
