Mixing It Up With Tando



The Stampendous Design Team was blessed enough to receive a fun selection of chipboard products, or “chippies” as they are called in the UK, from Tando Creative.  This awesome company is based in the UK, however, they sell quite a few Stampendous products, which, of course, makes us happy!  

For my project today, I've used some of the new Stampendous Pink Your Life stamps designed by Nicoletta Zanella.  These stamps are full of charm and designed to make you smile.
