Each month I am creating a project with brand new Stampendous stamps to inspire you. You also have a chance to win them via the monthly blog hop competition run by The Stencil Specialists, the Australian wholesaler for Stampendous.
This month we are using the Pine Ornaments stamp designed by Fran Seiford and is a sweet trio of Christmas ornaments just waiting for you to embellish them. As we didn’t run a hop last month, Julie has kindly created a bumper giveaway this month to celebrate the launch of the new Stampendous catalogue.
In honour of the bumper prize, I’ve created three cards to inspire you –
The first features a touch of red fine glitter. I’ve stamped the image with a grey ink to give more of a contrast to the luscious red & gold ribbon and sparkle from the glitter.
Next is a cute tag with the image embossed with Stampendous white embossing powder. I love how well this powder works on fine images like this one.
Lastly a card using soft pastels with pops of purple. I’ve also stamped this one with grey ink to give the design a subtle look.
Don’t forget to also pop over to the other blogs to check out what they have created for the hop! This month we say goodbye to Dot Leathbridge from Ink Art Designs as she takes on a new venture. This means we say hello and welcome to Tracy Moloney from Tracy’s Crafty Adventures.
