A Stampendous Collaboration with WeeScapes

Thank you for visiting my Stampendous Wee Scapes Collaboration post today. When you are done checking out my Wee Scapes creations, please click here. The Stampendous Design Team is celebrating our leader, Laura Weed's birthday with a fun celebration hop.

So all this week Stampendous is collaborating with Simi Creative Products, using their Wee Scapes Collection. I always thought the little trees and bushes were for model train enthusiasts but that's where Laura Weed's insight is so amazing. She challenged us to think outside the box and create with the wonderful assortment of product that Simi Creative Products so generously sent us.

Here are two completely different styles of projects that I created using this fun medium.

The first is this fun, pseudo-steampunk hat. I stamped the Stampendous Steampunk Owl on Wee Scapes asphalt paper which was so easy to work with. After assembling the hat, I swiped sections of it with VersaMark and melted Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel. Trust me when I say this paper also embosses really well. I was afraid the heat from my heat gun would melt its fuzziness. It didn't. My only regret is that I didn't emboss before assembling my hat because the heat did melt the glue from my hot glue gun which is why it looks puckered. I then added some tulle, a feather and a rolled up piece of dry wall patch. The wire band on the hat I modified from a piece I found in the jewelry aisle at Michaels. My finishing touch is the stamped and embossed gear. I used a gear from the Stampendous Guys and Gears set and again my favorite Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.

My second project uses this cute Stampendous Hula Kiddo stamp which I colored with my Copics. I added a whole bunch of Wee Scapes goodness to the image. The flowers on her lei are actually from a little bush that I cut up. There's some fuzzy grass at her feet but my favorite product is the long indivual strands of grass that I added to her grass skirt. I told you, so many possibilities! I also added some Stampendous Golden Sand Embossing Powder around her feet. Love it! The sentiment is from the Stampendous Birthday Assortment set. To create my card, I stamped the Stampendous Shell Background using VersaMark onto cardstock, wrapped it with twine and added a fringed grass skirt piece.

Two of my dear Stampendous teammates have also posted Wee Scapes projects. Please stop by and give them some love. Remember to comment on all of the Wee Scapes posts this week and stop back on Saturday for our wrap-up blog hop all for a chance to win a great prize.
