Puppy Playmates and Scenic Meadows

Greetings! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is sharing projects featuring our "Furry Friends." I think the pups in the "Puppy Playmates" are just adorable, so I chose to work with one of them on today's card, plus the new Scenic Meadows stamp set. My full instructions are below.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
QS5025: Puppy Playmates
QD5025: Puppy Playmates Die Set (Optional)
QS5027: Scenic Meadows
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

Other:
Bo Bunny: Turquoise Vintage Cardstock
Imagine: VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne
My Colors Cardstock: Sky
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: 031, 037, 060, 064, 075
Canson Mixed Media Paper
Colored Chalk
Pro Art: Fixative Spray

Directions:
1. Stamp the dog and sentiment on to Canson Mixed Media Paper with Nocturne Ink.

2. Color the dog with the Zig Markers listed.

3. Cut out the dog using the coordinating die or by fussy cutting.

4. Die cut the sentiment with the Small "A" Fitted Frame.

5. Die cut a mat out of Sky cardstock using the Large "A" Fitted Frame.

6. Stamp the background with the Scenic Meadows stamps with Nocturne Ink on to Stampendous' Mixed Media White Paper.

7. Color in the background using colored chalk.

8. Spray the background with Spray Fixative to keep the chalk from rubbing off.

9. Create the card base out of Bo Bunny Turquoise Vintage cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

10. Glue all layers with EZ Runner.
The Scenic Meadow stamp set creates scenes so quickly. And coloring them with chalk is very fast as well. The Puppy Playmates work so well with this set, and you can easily interchange them on your cards. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Stampendous team over on the Blog. Thanks so much 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.

So &quo…

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…
