Rainbow Fur

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team is sharing "Jungle Jive" projects. There are a lot of stamps that shout the jungle theme, and my card today uses the Wild Texture 6"x 6" stamp. I decided to go with rainbow fur, because I thought it would be a fun way to show off all the different styles of fur that are on this stamp. What do you think? My full instructions are below. 
Supplies:
Stampendous:
6CR014: Wild Texture
SSC1316: Smile Sentiments
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Atlantic Shore
Imagine: Kaleidacolor Inks in Bouquet, VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne
Tonic: Stamp Platform
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
Directions:
1. Lay the Wild Texture Stamp (stamp side up) on to your work surface.

2. Ink entire stamp with Kaleidacolor Ink in Bouquet.

3. Lay Mixed Media White Paper on top of inked image and carefully rub your hands over it to get the stamp impression on to the paper.

4. Trim image down to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2." This leaves you some "wiggle room" for trimming later, if necessary.

5. Position the sentiment stamp in the stamp positioner. The positioner makes it much easier to stamp the image at equal distances from each other.

6. Stamp the sentiment repeatedly on the background with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink.

7. Trim down background as necessary. I trimmed mine to 4" x 5 1/4."

8. Create the card base out of Atlantic Shore cardstock, cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2."

9. Adhere inked background to card base with EZ Runner.
As much as I love spending a long time coloring flowers or critters, it is also really great to bang out a quick, but graphic, card here and there. This was a pretty quick one to make, and I can see that by just changing out the sentiment, or even the Kaleidacolor Inks used, you can get completely different looks. It would be great to make a set of these with different repeated sentiments to give as a gift. So, would you like to see more "Jungle Jive" projects? Head on over to the Stampendous Blog if you do. I'll be back soon with another projects. 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…
