Please leave a comment below to win a fab set from Stampendous!!
Today is going to be a good day!!! Not only is it summer time, but I am giving away some fabulous Stampendous goodness.
I have made two projects with the new Cling Jumbo Holly Stocking set. This set has been available to retailers for a few weeks, so you may find it at your LSS. Good news for those that can’t find it because you can win it here!! It is as simple as leaving a comment on my blog and “liking” Stampendous on Facebook. A quick comment on Facebook about how much you love Stampendous and telling them that I sent you wouldn’t hurt, but that is just optional. On to my projects…
This card was a lot of fun to make. I used some Fran*tage techniques, and it was rather easy. Here are a few steps..
1) Cut your card base to desired size. Cut patterned paper to desired size for background. 2) Make a solution of water and instant coffee (the more coffee in the solution, the darker it will be) in a spritz bottle. Sprinkle dry instant coffee granules on background paper and spritz paper with instant coffee mixture (you can see the achieved look of this technique in the upper right hand corner). Set aside to dry or dry with a heat tool. 3) Using Boss Gloss, rub embossing ink on the edge of your background paper, sprinkle detail gold embossing powder over ink and heat. Distress edges of the background paper. 4) Stamp focal image with embossing ink and heat emboss detail gold embossing powder. Cut image out. 5) Stamp sentiment and heat emboss with Red Tinsel Embossing powder. Assemble card as desired.

This card’s measurements are a tad bigger 5.25 x 5.25. This is another example of how easy it is to make cards with Stampendous’ new line of Cling Jumbo stamps. I threw this card together in minutes. Here are some easy steps…
1) Cut your desired size card base. 2) Stamp Holly Leaves on cardstock and color with your desired medium. Cut out. 3) Stamp sentiment with embossing ink and heat embossing powder. Cut out your sentiment panel to desired size and ink edges for a “not-so” crisp look. Adhere to your desired background paper and adhere your holly leaves. 4) Attach ribbon and lastly, apply a few bits of Liquid Pearls.
