Curios Collection

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 Butterfly Stretch.

Here's what I used to create this card:

Here's what I did to create this card:

  1. Stamp image on white paper with black ink and color
  2. Fussy cut butterfly 
  3. Create an A2 card base and mat for image from green cardstock
  4. Trim white paper as shown and ink with various pads for background paper
  5. Stamp images from Textures set randomly on background paper
  6. Cut a piece of ribbon to fit across card and adhere to background paper
  7. Adhere background paper to card base
  8. Stamp sentiment in black ink as shown
  9. Adhere butterfly to card
