2. Apply VersaMark Ink to the center of the plaque, and sprinkle on a lot of Seasonings Embossing Powder. You'll want to play with the shape and quantity a bit, but I went for a roughly round pile of powder.

Balancing Time

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing projects using some of the new 6" x 6" Cling Stamps. There are quite a few to choose from, and because of that, I decided to use 2 of them on today's project. I was very inspired by the Clock Collage stamp. Balancing time is always an issue, especially when you're a mom, a crafter, have a job, etc. I am sure that many of you are in the same boat that I'm in. Here's a look at the art journal page that I created.

I started off by applying a few shades of ink from Imagine.  I used VersaMagic in Turquoise Gem and Grapefruit, plus New Sprout Memento in the tear drop shapes applicators and just swiped the color across my journal. Next, I stamped the Clock Collage. Given that the stamp is a 6" x 6" square, and my journal is a rectangle, I had some holes around the edges that I needed to fill. Since there is already cracking in the Clock Collage stamp, I decided to use the Crackle stamp to fill in the…

I Adore You

Hello! It's FREEZING on Long Island! We just had a "bombocyclone" which is a ton of frigid winds, lots of snow, and an insanely low pressure system. Needless to say, even though Winter just started, I am more than ready to bid it adieu already. To keep my mind off things, I decided to make a card that features the adorable Acorn Baby Sprite from Aurora Wings.

I wanted to stay away from all things winter, and I had printed out this little Sprite some time ago. I colored him up with my Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

After I fussy cut the Sprite, I decided I wanted to play with some dies, so I found an Oak Leaf die from Stampendous and cut 2 of them into my card base. I then stamped the coordinating Oak Leaf Stamp on the base with Golden Glitz Delicata Ink. You'll see that better in the next photo.

After that, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to fit inside the base. I then applied Distress Inks in Peeled Pa…

Let's Party!

Greetings! Today I am sharing the card I made for my son's 11th birthday. He loves Lawn Fawn critters just like I do, and I recently purchased a couple of sets that I knew I had to use for him. Needless to say, he loved the card. I am playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which has the theme of  Party. I am also entering this card into the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge which is Use Your Favorite Lawn Fawn Set.

Seriously, is this a party or what? I used stamps from Party Animal and Forest Feast. Forest Feast is my current favorite set. But that keeps changing, because I love them all so much! I knew that the tree stump stamp would be the perfect table for a grand party. The hardest part was figuring out who the Guest of Honor was going to be, and I think this little chick stepped up to the plate nicely (pun intended).

I stamped all of the images with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black on Canson Mixed Media Paper, with the exception of the stump, which was brown cards…
