Finally! I can share my favorite new stamp set! Stampendous!
Wow! I have had to keep my mouth shut for MONTHS! Some of the new Stampendous Stamps are totally AMAZING! I have designed several of the cards in the catalog and can't wait to share each one of them with you. I thought I would start with my favorite new stamp set. Hummingbirds 5072 (See below) AND the matching DIE! They are sooooooo super cool. At first I thought they were just a spring stamp set until I played with my fall watercolors. Check out the fall colors - they work great with this set!
Fall card: I water colored the entire card using my Ranger distress inks. It was so fun! I used various browns and oranges (Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Marigold, Persimmon, and rusty hinge) for the birds and my favorite two greens are Peeled Paint and Forest Moss. I used the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder and lightly brushed vintage photo over to soften the bright white color of the paper. I also added a bit of Stampendous Embossing Enamels to the background for added fun!
Spring: The pink and blue sample is actually in the Stampendous Catalog! Whew hew for me! I used my copics to color this one and totally LOVE LOVE LOVE the outcome!
Pinks: RV55, RV00, RV09, Greens YG01, YG03, YG17, YG63, YG67,Y11, blues b05, B02, B00, BG02, BG000, V04. (sorry I had to guess on the blues, your's does not have to be exactly like mine!).
