31 Days Of Halloween With Stampendous

I made this card for-

And you'll want to hop along, look what you could win, one prize pack is given away each week of October!!


To make the card Chilling was stamped on white cardstock with Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear.  Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord and Hickory Smoke were sponged onto the image after masking fluid dried on the eyes and lips.

After the image was sponged the masking fluid was removed to reveal the bright white paper.  This was then glued to an orange panel that had been sponged with Hickory Smoke ink.  It was then glued to a black card that was stamped with Industrial in Silvery Shimmer ink.

Happy Halloween was stamped on acetate with black StazOn ink and cut out.  I had to think for a while on how to attach it to the card since glue would show through the acetate.  A large orange rhinestone was placed on the acetate and a dot of glue was placed under it then placed on the card, it worked perfectly.

Hickory Smoke ink was rubbed on white May Arts Ribbon, tied in a knot and glued to the card.  Black and orange rhinestones were then placed on the ribbon.

Twinkle Twinkle

This card is one of my favorites, with the watercolor background and the pastel colors, of course baby cards are always cute! I used the Animal Mobile set from Stampendous to make this card and you can click  HERE to see a card I made using the same set with a completely different look.

Here is how my card was made; 
1.  The mobile from the Animal Mobile Perfectly Clear Set by Stampendous, was stamped on watercolor paper with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink, colored with watercolor pencils and cut out.

2.  Pop up pieces with foam squares on a panel that was watercolored with Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade and Salty Ocean.
3.  Stamp sentiment and heart at the bottom with black ink and color in the heart. Glue panel to a blue card with Zip Dry Glue.

Shabby Chic Fruit

I have some exciting news today, I am now on the design team for I Brake For Stamps and this is my first blog post as one of their design team members!!

Today I have a shabby chic card that was made using the new Fruit and Flowers Sheet from I Brake For Stamps.  Here is how it was made;

1.  I diecut white cardstock using Fitted Frames A and took some plastic wrap (like you use in your kitchen), wadded it up, tapped it on a Sand ink pad and stamped it onto my paper.  I didn't want the background to be bright white. This was repeated until I was happy with how it looked.  The edges were sponged with the same ink.
2.  The strawberry from the Fruit and Flowers Sheet was then stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with PEARLustre Champagne Embossing Powder.

3.  It was then colored with Zig Clean Color pens and shadowed with decorative chalk.
4.  Fruit from the same stamp set was stamped with Lettuce Adirondack ink and gold Dot Sparklers were added.  This was layered onto dark green decorative paper with Zip Dry Glue and set aside.
5.  A Lattice die from Spellbinders was used to cut white cardstock.  A VersaMark ink pad was smooshed on top of the diecut piece and Aged Rose Embossing Enamel was sprinkled on the ink and heat embossed.
6.  The lattice was taped to the top half of a 5 1/4" x 4" white panel that had the same plastic wrap stamped background as the strawberry panel. The over hang was cut off.
7.  Green decorative paper was glued to the bottom portion of the panel and a gold paper strip was glued over the seam.
8.  Strawberry was stamped on a diecut piece that was prepared the same as above  and stamped with Victorian Velvet Distress ink.  Gold Dot Sparklers were added and the piece was popped up with 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I'm so excited, this week the Stampendous Design Team gets to share a sneak peek from the New Stampendous October catalog!! My cards today feature a couple background stamps to make a sophisticated collage background.

To make this I rubbed Wild Honey and Peeled Paint Distress inks on an acrylic block, spritzed with water and stamped onto a white panel.  I then spritzed the block again and stamped on another white panel to make a second card.  Each panel looks different and some are darker than others.

Once that dried Scrollwork Leaves was stamped in two of the corners with Peeled Paint ink and Script Lines was randomly stamped with Tea Dye Distress ink.

The hello was die cut from wine colored paper, glued on with Zip Dry Glue and purple rhinestones were added.  The panel was glued to a white card.

Be sure to stop the Stampendous Blog to see what the other Designers have to share with you today, link is at the bottom.

Stamping With Woodsy Stack Stamps

This week the Stampendous Design Team is sharing projects made using Woodsy Stack and Winter Stack Perfectly Clear Stamp Sets.  For my project I used the Woodsy Stack set.  Be sure to head over to the Stampendous Blog to see what the other Designers have for you today.  Here is how my card was made.

1.  Stamp trees on a diecut circle with Onyx Black ink, heat set and apply masking fluid.
2.  Once the masking fluid is dry, sponge green ink for the grass and blue ink for the sky.
3.  Remove the masking fluid by rubbing it off with your finger and color trees with a brown Zig pen.
4.  Stamp bunny on Bristol Smooth paper (Zig Clean Color pens blend beautifully on this) with black ink, heat set and color with Zig pens. Cut out and set aside.
5.  Ink Wood Background with Antique Linen first then ink on top of that with Tea Dye ink, this will give a variation of color.
6.  Glue stamped circle onto the left side of the panel with Zip Dry, cut off the over hang and layer onto blue paper and glue onto a kraft color card.
7.  Stamp sentiment on a blue strip with black ink and outline with a white gel pen.
8.  Pop bunny up on the trees with foam squares and glue the sentiment below him.
9.  Glue green and blue sequins onto card using Glossy Accents.

Gingerbread Treat Bag

Look at this new Gingerbread Baker Stamp and Die Set that Stampendous has, just in time for holiday treat giving.  Today I used it to decorate a Whisker Graphics polka dot bag filled with homemade treats.

1.  Using the Gingerbread Baker Stamp and Die Set, die cut the gingerbread man from kraft colored paper.  Stamp face and buttons with black ink and sponge edges with Walnut Stain ink. Apply Red Dot Sparklers to the cheeks and top button.
2.  Die cut hat, apron and bowl (I just used the heart) from white cardstock.  Also die cut bowtie and bowl (again) from red cardstock.
3.  Glue diecut pieces onto the gingerbread man and glue him onto a Whisker Graphics bag.
4.  Stamp sentiment on white cardstock, cut into a tag shape and stamp checkers on the top and bottom with Satin Red VersaFine Ink. Layer onto a larger kraft color tag, punch a hole and place a kraft circle reinforcer from Paper Studio over the hole.
5.  Wrap the folded bag with red and white twine and tie on the tag. Glue on the red heart left over from the bowl die cut piece and your done!
