Stampendous Saturday Summer Challenge!!!

Ready for another challenge with the Stampendous team?  Throughout the month of June we are challenging ourselves (and you) to make a card, project, gift, altered item, or a bit of home decor that is related to SUMMER!  That's right, we're celebrating the start of summer all month long!

I was so inspired this week by the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge, that I had to incorporate my Stampendous stamps with it.

Our theme this month is Summer and flowers are certainly SUMMER!

I stamped the flowers from Agapanthus Perfectly Clear Stamp Set with Versamark Watermark Ink and heat embossed with White PEARLustre embossing powder.  The outlines of the Agapanthus was heat embossed with Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel.

I stamped the sentiment with Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel and cut around it.  I adhered the sentiment to this beautiful taupe colored crochet lace.

I stapled the lace to the card panel.


Paper: Classic Solar Crest, Desert Storm (Neenah)

Stamps: Agapanthus Perfectly Clear Stamp Set (Stampendous)

Ink: Versamark Watermark Ink (Tsukineko)

Extras: crotchet lace (stash), White PEARLustre Embossing Powder, Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel (Stampendous), staples (Ranger)


Be sure to check out what my teammates have created for the challenge today!

I thought that I recognized that sketch! Love the monochromatic vintage tones for this card, with the slight touch of shimmer from the ep.
