Stampendous New Release Week
It's Release Week at Stampendous! The Stampendous Design Team has been super busy creating fantastic projects using the new Stampendous images and essentials. Every day this week, a few of us will be showcasing our projects. This is day 3 of the inspiration so if you missed anything earlier in the week, you can catch up here.
My card uses two of my newest favorite Stampendous stamps: Cling Holly Basket and Cling Jumbo Cardinals. By the way, you can find these as well as all of the new releases at the Stampendous online store.
To create my card, I started with a 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" dark green Bazzill card base. I then cut several panels and mats using the Echo Park Season's Greetings paper pack. On the green patterned panel, I stamped the holly and ivy image from the Cling Jumbo Cardinals set using Tsukineko's Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped the Holly Basket image using Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic X-Press It Blending Card. Both images were colored with Copic markers. Before adhering and attaching all the panels, I added a few more touches: I masked the Holly Basket and over-stamped it with the Stampendous Cling Calligraphy Sampler stamp. I also stamped this image onto the red piece of patterned paper. I added an Offray gold organdy ribbon and for a final touch, I sprinkled the main image with Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel. You don't need adhesive to use this enamel, just heat from the underside. Isn't it luscious? Stampendous has just released several new colors of this must-have product. Here is a close-up of my card:
