Collectible Curios

Stampendous® has a new cool stamp that debuted in the January 2018 catalog, our new Curio Rubber Stamps.  They're awesome stamps that are made with the same wonderful, gray, graphic rubber that our regular stamps use, but, their mounts are really cool, full-color, three-dimensional wood blocks that are fun to stamp with or just sit there looking cute.  I plan to collect them all so I can have them to stamp with or just look at for inspiration or a smile!  My card today uses Curio Birdie Friend.

Here's what I used to create this card:

Here's what I did to create this card:

  2. Trim image loosely and set aside
  3. Create an A2 card base and mat for image from blue cardstock
  4. Trim pattern papers as shown
  5. Cut a piece of ribbon to fit across card
  6. Adhere bottom layer of patterned paper to card base
  7. Adhere ribbon to yellow strip of patterned paper and then to card base as shown
