Stampendous Monthly Challenge

Welcome to another Saturday of Stampendous inspiration. We are challenging ourselves to create with gift giving in mind. You'll be able to read the details a bit later in this post.

My take this week was in the form of greeting card gift set. My mind is a bit foggy these days but I think there is such a thing as a museum collage set. It will come to mind some day as to the name, but for now we'll just say they are a collage set.

All of these cards are made with an aged cream cardstock on top of a kraft cardstock. The images are stamped with Versafine Onyx Black . The Stampendous Essentails are Vintage Mahogany Embossing Tinsel, Chunky White embossing enamel, and Pirate Gold embossing enamel. Two stamp sets were used to give this set a theme and those were Dream Text and Altered Type Alphabet.

(All of my photos were taken at night so they aren't showing all the wonderful detail in the stamped images and the colors in the embossing that look amazing in real life. I'll see if I can take some morning photos, but it's another soccer day for our family.)
