It's the last day of our fabulous Stampendous Catalog release. Have you enjoyed all the catalog samples?
It's amazing to see how everyone uses the same image so differently and with each one. I have a compassion for creativity for sure. So with that said, I'll show you a couple of my cards that I spent more time on because it stirred up the colorist in me.
Who doesn't love a distracted boy, let's say about 5 years old, getting his first kiss from a friend smitten with him. Well, my son is that age and he's already been kissed. This Stampendous Kissin Kiddos stamp is exactly how I picture it. It's an adorable image and a fun one to color at that. I paired it with a some hand drawn scallop border and gingham ribbon, but the fun part was turning some plain textured cardstock into a fun patterned one with Essentials. I laid out all the elements and sprinkled my elements around the edges than lifted off the image and scallop to heat the Essential from the back side of the paper.

Now for my next card:
Now this stamp was a dream for me. Fairy Garden might seem daunting to a few, but I love to get lost in coloring and this image just does it for me. I was done in no time at all and then I added Fun Flock and Glitter to the image. The card base has a wonderful sprinkling of Vintage Lilac Tinsel Powder and Lavender Glass Glitter which I heat embossed from the back side of the card. All that was left to add was a simple and glittery May Arts Ribbon. You can glance at the details of the image at the beginning of the post.
