Stampendous & Core’dination Blog Hop

Hello folks,

Welcome to the finale of a fantastic week of paper and stamping inspiration with Stampendous and Core’dination. All the Stampendous Frantaging essentials really goes well with the sanding and distressing that Core papers can take!

And this was what I got for my 10th wedding anniversary. Framed with this elegant Stampendous border from the Jumbo Amaryllis stamp set. I double scored 2 more borders on the background Core cardstock and sanded it to give a linear look. The number “10″ was a chipboard number that is dipped in Aged Silver embossing enamels and heat set. The entire background was just sanded and dripped with paint for an overall distressed look.

Hop on along to the rest of the team to see what creative fun ways they are using their stamps and paper!
