Stampendous! Saturday and BLOG CANDY

Its once again time for Stampendous! Saturday! Before I get started on this week’s project I need to share the winner from last week’s sketch challenge. I only had one brave stamper take me up on the challenge, and that was fellow DT member Wendy Jordan! Here is her absolutely stunning creation!

Thanks so much for playing along with me Wendy! The set is yours if you don’t have it already! I wil do another challenge again soon!!

This week I am sharing a card that I created with the brand new set Cling Three Gifts (CRW064). It will be available soon at your local store! For my card I first stamped the Cling Music Score background stamp (CRR103-R) in Vintage Sepia Versafine ink. After that was dry I stamped the Three Gifts stamp in Versamark ink and embossed it with Stampendous! Opaque White Embossing Powder (EP100-R).

Next I rubbed over the three bottles with various Tim Holtz distress inks: Victorian Velvet, Tumbled Glass, and Shabby Shutters. The edges of the panel were distressed with the Vintage Sepia pad. The burgundy cardstock layer was dipped into the edge of my Versamark pad and embossed with the White powder after I cut it with decorative scissors. Ribbon is by May Arts.

This week I am giving away the stamp Cling Music Score , courtesy of Stampendous!, to one lucky winner! All you have to do is leave me a comment here. Easy peasy. I would really love it if you would also head over to the Stampendous! blog and leave a comment on any post…there are some GORGEOUS creations this week as we teamed up with May Arts.
