Good morning!! Welcome to Stampendous Saturday!! You all are probably getting used to the drill by now!! Myself and some of my fabulous Design Team Sista’s from Stampendous, post our creations and give away some awesome Stampendous stamps!!!
First off, here is the winner from last week’s post that was randomly picked from Random.org
“What a gorgeous tag!! Wow! It's amazing. Thanks for the chance to win!”
Thanks for your kind comment Stephanie. Please email me (email@example.com) your mailing information and we will get stamp off to you!!
I have been working on putting together two classes for World Card Making Day, featuring Stampendous products. This card is one of the cards that I will be teaching.
I am so in love with distressing my own papers using instant coffee and water mixed together. You can view a fabby video Coffee Talk with Fran on You Tube.
I love the coffee staining technique so much, I have started staining pages (8.5 x 11) at a time. That way I have a piece ready at all times.
I stained a piece of Kraft cardstock with instant coffee and warm water. Once the staining was dry I stamped the Stampendous Dragonfly Vine in Versafine Sepia. I then distressed the edges with Distress Walnut Stain.
Using the same focal image stamp, I stamped in embossing ink on Stampendous Thermal Acetate. I sprinkled Kaleidoscope Embossing powder in the dragonflies wings and Aged Copper Embossing Powder on the body. Once all was melted, and dried, I cut out just the dragonfly from the acetate. There was enough opaque area on the dragonfly to place a tiny dimensional foam sticker to raise him from the original image.
I wrapped some pretty May Arts ribbon around the project and place a trinket pin with copper beads from the center of the bow.
This week I will be offering the fabulous Stampendous Cling Dragonfly Vine.
Please leave a comment for your chance to win this stamp from Stampendous. I will announce a winner next Saturday, when I post our last Blog Candy post.
