Stampendous Saturday!!!

Hey everyone…Have you played along with Stampendous’ Sketch Challenge yet….there is still time.


Here is the sketch….make a card and link it at Stampendous Inspiration blog


We can’t wait to see your creations.

Today I have a few cards to share. 

The first one was made with my favorite new Stampendous Christmas set, Cling Jumbo Peace Dove Set.


I stamped the dove on white cardstock with Versamark Waterbased Ink and heat embossed with Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  I then cut the dove out.

I then stamped “Peace” with Versamark Waterbased Ink on the white card base and heat embossed Detail Gold Embossing Powder over it.

I placed a piece of patterned vellum over the top of the sentiment and adhered it with gold brads.  I added the stamped focal image onto the vellum with dimensionals.


Paper: Mohawk White (Kelly Paper Co.); patterned vellum (stash)

Stamps: Cling Jumbo Peace Dove (Stampendous)

Extras: Detail Gold Embossing Powder (Stampendous), gold brads (Creative Impressions)

Card #2…

I am not very good at Clean and Simple cards, but this birthday card for my youngest ♥BONUS♥ daughter fell together, like I have been making CAS cards all along.


The Stampendous Cling Music Score stamp that I used is an entire background stamp, but I just wanted a bit of the background stamp to show, sooo…I die cut a square out of a piece of cardstock and stamped over the square with the Cling Music Score stamp.  On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the darling birdcage and birdy from Stampendous Tweet Cages Perfectly Clear Stamps and cut it out.  I “hung” the cage with some bakers twine and simply stamped the sentiment from Stampendous Perfectly Clear Birthday Assortment set.

I love CAS.  I need to work on these more often!!!


Paper: Kisses (Bazzill); Mohawk White (Kelly Paper Co.)

Stamps: Perfectly Clear Tweet Cages, Cling Music Score, Birthday Assortment (Stampendous)

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Memento Rhubarb (Tsukineko)

Extras: Baker’s Twine (The Twinery)

Please take a few minutes to visit a few of my good buddies blogs….
