Matching Set for Stampendous

Hello peeps!!

I hope you had a meaningful Christmas day yesterday! Christmas came early this year for me when my box of goodies came from Stampendous the 1st week of December.

Stampendous stamps were my very 1st few set of stamps s0 I was over the moon, like a kid in the candy store. I took out every stamp that in the box and started stamping on Recollection kraft cardstock (my must-haves laying around in my craft room) just to get them inked to see what it looks like on paper. The result – lots and lots of unintentional matching sets.

Well, one of them is not quite matching as you can tell. But I had a ball with these clean and simple cards that are the staple of my greeting card business, Arty Carty Handmade Cards.


Here are fuller view of each card with my supply list:

I used Stampendous Cling Bandanas andStampendous Cling Jumbo Think Of You stamp sets on this card and embellished it with Teresa Collins ribbon trims and Mark Richards Pearls.

The medallions on this card was also from the Stampendous Cling Jumbo Thinking of You Set and the sentiment is from the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Stamps Vintage Typewriter set. I love how the Wrights Velvet Chocolate ribbon gives it such a luxurious look to this card.

Last but not least, I used Stampendous Cling Jumbo Water Lily and Stampendous Cling Dragonfly Vine for the background of this card. The sentiment is from the Stampendous Vintage Typewriter Perfectly Clear Stamps. The dragonfly was beautified using Stampendous Embossing Tinsel (Vintage Olive & Vintage Plum) and Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel (Aged Gold).

Can you tell I had fun with my box of goodies! You can see detailed instructions on the Stampendous blog today.
