My First Stampendous Post!

Hello peeps. Please click here for Saturday's Blog Hop post.


Hi everyone! Have you recovered from World Card Making Day? I got to spend a good part of the day cropping at my favorite LSS.I didn't get much done (never do at crops), but I had loads of fun.


Speaking of fun, I am excited to share my first official post for Stampendous. We're teaming up with Core'dinations for a week of fun and prizes. Here is the card I made for the hop. I used the Core'dinations Gemstone collection in Opal. I happened to have a die cut of the word "fly", which I cut out with my Silhouette machine, but ended up not using. I masked it over the cardstock and distressed around it. I then stamped the cling Butterfly Post onto the paper with Versa Mark and heat embossed it with Stampendous Pirate Gold embossing powder. The gold polka dots in the upper right and lower left corners are actually washi tape. Then, for my first time ever, I used the fran•táge technique. Wow! I love it. That is my new favorite technique!! I finished it off by adhering a butterfly sticker from my stash.

The sentiment on the card base is from the set Sincere Sentiments. The pretty gold ribbon is from May Arts.

Do take this opportunity to hop around to all the blogs playing today. Such
a wealth of great ideas for combining Stampendous images with Core'dinations
paper! You'll love what you learn and you may even win some paper and stamps
if you leave "delightful and insightful" comments wherever you visit!
