If you hopped here from the Stampendous! blog then you are right on track, if not head back over and start at the beginning! If you get lost along the way, here's the hopping order:
The first project I have to share with you today is a large card that I created with the new Jumbo Cling Rubber Hydrangea set. This flower is simply gorgeous and has so many possibilities. I chose to do a resist effect by stamping it on smooth white card stock with a Versamark stamp pad which I then heat embossed with Stampendous! White embossing powder.
Using multiple colors of Versacolor ink I swiped the small pads over the embossed image. After I was happy with the mixed color effect I wiped the excess off the embossed image leaving the white standing out.
The beauty of these new large stamps is that I could have stopped there for the card front and it would have been a standard A2 size. But I chose to make the card larger by making this panel just one of the layers. The sentiment is from SSC1117 Sincere Sentiments Perfectly Clear Stamp set. cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilitie and then I added some gems in the corner from Creative Impressions.
The second project I want to share today is a layout that I created with 2 different new Jumbo Cling Rubber Sets. The 3 large medallions on the left of the page are from the new Jumbo Cling Rubber Thinking of You set.
These I embossed with a versamark pad and Stampendous! Paprika embossing powder. I added a small pearl to the center of each (Creative Impressions). I love that Stampendous! has so many colors of embossing powders. Sometmes I want a bright effect, but in this instance I wanted the color to be very subtly different from the background
Beside the photo of Katie, I also embossed the swirl stamp from the new Jumbo Cling Rubber Rose set. This was embossed in a darker shade of brown…this time I used Clear Bark embossing powder. I added a dark brown felt flower to the flourish and then gave it leaves using some Stampendous! Velvet Class a peel stickers.
All of the new jumbo sets are simply gorgeous! They are perfect not only for cards but for scrapbooking, home décor and more! I hope you’ve enjoyed visiting with me today. Now its time to hop over to Jennie’s blog. I am sure she will have amazingly inspirational eye candy!
Don't forget to leave comments on EVERYONE'S blog post in order to qualify for the drawing. Stampendous! will be giving away 2 each of the 9 new Jumbo Cling Rubber sets plus a new Jumbo Clear Handle! You have until midnight Tuesday to leave comments!
Thanks so much for hopping by today!
