Stampendous Saturday & Sketch Challenge Reminder…


Good morning Everyone!!!!  Quick reminder that Stampendous’ first challenge is about to come to a close!!  You have until this Thursday, September 30th to enter your take on the fabulous Wendy Price’s sketch…


Link your project up at the Stampendous Impressions blog, using In Linkz.

Today I am sharing a card I CASED from an email I received from Archivers. 


I used the Cling Poinsettia Silhouette and Christmas Greetings (CRG119)

I stamped the focal image on ivory cardstock with Bamboo Leaves ink.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed Stampendous Vintage Mahogany embossing powder.  The focal image was originally stamped in green ink, of course I wanted the flower of the poinsettia red, so I used my Versamarker Watermark Pen and filled in the flowers with embossing ink.  I love the Versamarker Watermark Pen because you have so much control of where you can place embossing ink.  After I had my desired coverage of embossing ink, I sprinkled Red Tinsel embossing powder of the flowers and heat set.

I distressed the edges of my cardstocks a bit and adhered it all together!!

Here is a list of supplies I used this week:

Paper: Kraft, ivory (Canvas Corp), Java (Bazzill Basics)

Stamps: Cling Poinsettia Silhouette, Christmas Greetings (Stampendous)

Ink: Versamarker Watermark Pen, Versamark Watermark Ink, Memento Bamboo Leaves (Tsukineko), Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap Distress Ink (Ranger)

Extras: Gold Pen (Krylon), Red Tinsel, Vintage Mahogany Embossing Powders (Stampendous)

Thank you so much for stopping by today and seeing my creation.  Please take the time to play along with the Stampendous Sketch Challenge!!!  The last day to enter the challenge is Thursday, September 30th.  The winner will be announced on Saturday, October 1st, which happens to be WCMD and the start of a FUN new Stampendous challenge!!
