Wisteria Circle

Wisteria Circle is one of the newest Stampendous stamps that I'm in love with!  To begin with, the name is just dreamy!  I can just imagine living on a street named Wisteria Circle or in a sweet cottage named Wisteria Circle.  Yes, I'm a mushy romantic at heart!  I've always loved Wisteria vines, they grow wild around here and they're stunningly beautiful, just like this stamp!

Here's what I used to create this card:

BasicGrey® Kioshi Paper Pad
Apple Green Cardstock by Core'dinations®
May Arts Ribbon®
Copic® Markers
Zip Dry Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll see you again next week with more Stampendous inspiration.  Until then, have a wonderful week!

Moroccan Tile Time

It's time to add a little Stampendous Moroccan Tile spice to the mix!  I love this stamp!  I know, I love them all, but, seriously, this one is so beautiful!  You can use it for a background or make it the star of the show.  It your choice!

Here's what I used to create this card:

Stampendous® 6CR007 Cling Moroccan Tile Rubber Stamp
Spectrum Aqua® Markers
Canson® Watercolor Paper
May Arts Ribbon®
Core'dinations® Apple Green Cardstock
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Here's what I did to create this card:

  1. Color stamp with markers
  2. Spritz stamp with water, lay paper over top and press paper onto stamp
  3. Trim around stamped image
  4. Trim solid cardstock
  5. Tie ribbon and adhere to card front
  6. Adhere layers together
I love the soft watercolor look of this image done with this technique!  I've not used this technique in a while and it was fun to do.  Thanks bunches for stopping by and I'll see you again next week with more Stampendous inspiration!

Welcome to Paris!

Bonjour, mes amis!  Bienvenue!  One of the things I love the most about Paris are the flower stalls.  I love flowers to begin with, but, to see the stalls with buckets and baskets full of every color of flower imaginable is a sight to behold.  Of course, everything in Paris is a sight to behold!  For today, I've created a small 6" x 6" canvas paying homage to Paris and the beautiful flowers at the markets using the new Stampendous Paris Bonjour Cling Rubber Stamp Set.

Here's what I used to create this canvas:

Everyday Chicks

I love the new Stampendous Everyday Chicks!  These are just the cutest little fluff balls and they really bring a smile to my face.  A short while back, I was lying in bed trying to fall asleep and I started thinking about this set.  I love words, word games, puns, fun plays on expressions, pretty much anything to do with words.  Do you get it?  Tres chic(ks) - Very pretty/three chicks in Paris!  Yeah, okay, it's corny, I know.  Still, it's just one of those things that popped into my head and it just wouldn't go away until I created this page.  So there, now my brain can move onto another project!

So, this is a journal page done with fun in mind.  I love the juxtaposition of the images.  I love the cute little cartoon-style chicks and font mixed with the more realistic-style Eiffel Tower and trees!

Here's what I used to create this journal page:
