Hummingbird Wishes

It's time for a sneak peek into the Stampendous® January 2019 Catalog!  I'm sharing this card I created using the new Stampendous® Laurel Burch™ Hummingbird Wishes Perfectly Clear™ Stamp Set.  I love, love, LOVE this set!  I just called to me to be colored!  I'm sure you totally understand what I'm talking about.  Do you see that lovely blue-ish/purple-ish background?  That was created with Distress Oxide inks.  The rest is colored with Copics.  Pretty darn yummy, huh!?

Over the River...

...and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go in our adorable Stampendous CURIO Woody!  Is this not the cutest Woody you've seen in a while?  I love these old-fashioned station wagons and I had to color this one green like the station wagon I grew up with.  There was nothing better than riding in that back rear-facing seat and waving at the people behind us!

Perfect Pairing with PaperMart

Today, Stampendous is doing a mini blog hop using PaperMart products.  PaperMart has a pretty wide range of products, but, not all of them are paper!  You should make a point of going to their website and taking a look around.  There's a lot to see!  For my project today, I chose to use one of their Gold Window Stackable Steel Tin Cans.  I love little tins of any sort and this was right up my alley.  

I happened to notice the tin was the perfect size of an Artist Trading Coin.  I enjoy creating ATC's!  It's fun to see what you can do on such a small scale.  I thought it would be fun to create an ATC with our Frog Yoga Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.  I love this set!  These frogs are just too cute!

I love my little froggy tin!  I hope you'll visit PaperMart and check out their many wonderful products!  I think they pair perfectly with our stamps!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again soon!  Have a wonderful weekend!
