Sandy Beaches


Hello and happy Friday folks. The Stampendous team are spending some time at the beach with House-Mouse Designs® and friends. 

I have two catalog cards to share with you today, and both lead me to realize I didn't know a lot about the beach. I don't know my beach birds and second I don't know my seashells!


Before I share my supplies and instructions for each card here is the complete hop list.

Stop by the Stampendous blog to see more great projects as well as the designers participating in the weekly theme.

Being Sentimental with a Framing Challenge


Can you believe it's Friday already? So many places to go, things to do, projects to finish and that isn't even to get ready for summer around our house.

It's nice to stop in here this week and share a little something colorful and fun. Today's post is also about the Stampendous weekly theme, Celebrating Sentiments!

What are they? It's akin to coloring pages, but it can be stamped over and over again! Stampendous has nine terrific framed sentiment stamps that are the perfect size for an A2 card. Stamp it, color it and glue it onto a card base. The card is done unless you want to add embossing powders, ribbon or whatever your embellishing go-to may be.

Before I get on with my post, I'd like to also let you know that there is a new Splitcoaststampers Mix-Ability challenge, MIX173 : Frame It!!, that our new team member Polly is hosting, you'll want to stop in and meet her, join in the fun while you are there! I'll be sharing a project sometime later, but when I saw the challenge I immediately thought of all these great sentiment stamps that are framed!

Here's my card with supplies and instructions at the end of my post.



There are more fabulous samples from the Stampendous design team today. If you haven't already stopped by their blogs here is the complete list for today.
