Now comment to win some *BLOG CANDY*!

Good morning and WELCOME to the weekend!!!

My first order of business is giving away last week’s Stampendous Blog Candy.

I was so thrilled with picked #5 and it was my friend and Dreamweaver Stencil Design team sister…


Congrats LIZ!!! Email me your mailing address and Stampendous will send your Blog Candy right out. Since you both are in California, you should have it in a few days!!

I am going to continue the fun today with another Stampendous Blog Candy giveaway!!

This week, the deal is the same. Comment here to win and we would love it if you ran by the Stampendous Facebook page, became a follower and told them I sent you!!

I have two cards to share today. Here is my first one…


In addition to loving Stampendous stamps, glitters and embossing powders, I LOVE CHALLENGES. This is the weekly CASE Study. Each month at CASE Study, there is a Muse and participants CASE their creations. You can view the Muse’s creation by clicking on this link.

I will also be throwing this little guy into the Paper Craft Magazine Color Inspiration Challenge. Here are the cool colors..

Color Inspiration Challenges

To create this card I used Stampendous Tweet Friends

and Stampendous Geo Bubbles

This card was easy peasy to make…some paper cutting, some stamping, some coloring…put it all together. I loved how fun it turned out and I will be giving this little cutie to my friend Mandy!!


Paper: Petty Cash Bling, Candlelight, Mango and Caribbean Breeze (Bazzill Basics Paper)

Stamps: Tweet Friend Perfectly Clear SetSSC2010, Geo Bubbles CRR116 (Stampendous)

Ink: Memento (Tsukineko); Spica Sky Blue, Y11, Y15, Y18, YR00, YR02, YR04, BG000, BG05, B000, B01, B02, G12, G14, G17, 00 Sketch (Copic Markers)

Die: Marianne Creatables, Spellbinders

Extras: Hemp String (CTMH), Flowers (Wild Orchid, Recollections), border punch (MS Crafts), Detail White Embossing Powder (Stampendous), Rhinestones (craft supply)


For this card I used the super cool Stampendous Cling Jumbo Water Lily set

Really everyone…this card was also sooo easy. I colored the background with Copic Markers and an exaggerated feathering technique. Once I had the desired color, I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder. The Water Lily was stamped twice, cut out and one of the Lilies colored with Copic Markers and using a more controlled feathering technique. Once I had finished coloring, I rolled the edges of the flower petals with a pencil to give some dimension. I adhered the two flowers together with dimensionals and applied it to the colored back ground card base.


Paper: Bazzill Basics Paper

Here is another quickie project that I made using this set…


This simple candle was decorated with Alcohol Inked sticky glitter sheets. After I applied alcohol ink, I then stamped on the glitter paper with Stazon. I applied some Stampendous Class A Peels to acetate and applied them to the outside. All done, that simple.

Ok…so here’s the deal. Leave me a comment and tell me which of the three stamps you like best. If your number is drawn, you get that Stampendous Stamp set. DON’T FORGET….YOU HAVE TO TELL ME WHICH STAMP SET YOU LIKE BEST OR I WILL DRAW ANOTHER COMMENTOR!!!

Please take the time to check out my Stampendous Design Team sister’s Cyndi Bundy, Taylor Usry and Wendy Price. The are ALL giving away Stampendous stamps today also!!

Have a great weekend!! Hopefully you’ll get some stamping time in!!!
