Gourmet Rubber Stamps Febuary Color Challenge

Hello everyone,

I’m still basking from Valentine’s joy (read: chocolate galore) … and the anticipation of warmer weather ahead. So when I saw this month’s color scheme – I had to make a happy love related card. Here are the colors:

This gorgeous butterfly image is one of Crafter’s Companion recently CHA released Stamp It Imagine Range – Birds and Butterflies. I just randomly inked up the background with a brayer and some distressed ink.

It always thrills me to recognize one of my blog reader’s name in those challenges. I hope to see your card there!

Stampendous Febuary Challenge

Hello folks,

When I think of Febuary, Valentine’s Day is the 1st thing that comes to my mind. I have love to share – mine is not a new crazy, can’t keep your hands off each other kind of teenage love but one that has grown, stablized and matured over the many years. One that I have come to appreciate more and more.

Stampendous CHA Jan 2013a (feb)

Those delicate flowers, both wedding sentiments and gorgeous embossing powders are courtesy of Stampendous and just newly released this past month.

From Valentines to Wedding Planning, Stampendous has lots to love, just add a dash of creative imagination. Our new Valentine Kiddos, our Perfectly Clear Stamps long-stemmed Rose Thoughts Set, our popular Heart Stack (available in Michaels Stores), and some brand new Wedding stamps joining our classics in our January Catalog ( http://bit.ly/StampendousJanuary2013) mean you can show us the love in lots of ways.

We’d love to see your ideas for Jumbo Flower Wedding Invites; sweet classrooms full of Valentines; scrapbook pages celebrating loves past, present, and future; even cards and projects just celebrating love in general. Show us what you love and link your project to the linky tool below for your chance to win some love from us! Be sure and check out the design team inspiration for ideas to spark your affections. You can use any images on your entries, but Stampendous images (and not just words) count twice. (and yes, you can enter, but to win you must have a U.S. Mailing Address) (BTW…nothing says love like embossing it yourself!) Come join us!
