Stampendous, Tim Holtz Kraft-Core, and Ranger Distress Stains

WE ARE STILL GOING STRONG WITH THE CROP!

ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT! Make sure you check out the Master Challenge List HERE.

Did you know that our friends over at Stampendous have a very fun challenge for us for our Hard Core {Holiday} Crop??

Check it out HERE. All you need is some Core and stamps!!!! And the winner will get a pack of our Darks Collection pack. The rich tones of this cardstock is PERFECT for this time of year.

Designer April Derrick has a layout for us! Stampendous has the CUTEST and FUNNIEST sentiments for Holidays like this Tinsel one that April used.  And she always ROCKS the Ranger and we all know how great the Distress Inks and stains go well with kraft.

Products used:

Core: Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection, Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions, Core Tags
Stampendous Products: Boss Gloss, Shabby Pink Pastel Embossing Enamel, Glitter, Cling Poinsettia Background stamp, & Cling Tinsel Tangle Stamp
Queen & Co., Twinkle Goosebumps, Twinkle Motifs, Pearls

* Tinsel tip 1: I sanded over the embossed words just a little, and then I stained them with Ranger’s Distress Stain. I gently wiped the excess stain off with a paper towel and repeated the process once more to darken the color. As you can see from this layout, the Kraft-Core from the Nostaglia line and the Seasonal Impressions core’dinate perfectly!

* Tinsel tip 2: I used a damp paint brush to apply Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage to the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions cardstock and then I quickly dropped some fine snow white glitter from Stampendous all over it. It dries in no time flat and then you have super sparkly embossed cardstock!

And just one more close up for you to get all this goodness :)

Especially our Core Tags..they ROCK!

And for inspiration here today, we have a project from Design team Member Melissa Oliveira.

For this layout, I used the Cling Decorative Grate CRR145 stamp from Stampendous. I stamped it onto Snowflake core, stamping the image twice with each inking, creating one dark image and one lighter image. I trimmed the images from the cardstock and layered two light and one dark image onto a piece of whitewash cardstock. Lines were scored around the stamped layers creating a “window pane” type of effect.

The trio of rosettes was created by punching large scalloped circles, sanding them and tearing them in a spiral shape, then twisting them around the end of a stylus and adhering with a glue dot. A turquoise pearl from Queen&Co. was used in the center of each rosette to mimic the baby’s headband in the photo.

I created the banner by punching a border along the edge of a strip of Chocolate Box cardstock then trimming 1 inch strips up the border design. Alphabet stickers were added and the pieces were adhered over bakers twine. Journaling was done on a lightly sanded piece of Whitewash using a typewriter. I used a pink die cut square layer that I cute from a die from Lifestyle Crafts and the cardstock is from the 6×6 Spotted collection.

And a close up of those gorgeous flowers!!! Add some May Arts Ribbon and other details and you have a great layout.

And of course…our blog! And for inspiration here today, we have a project from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. She created the most beautiful card for us today!

Where do we start?  Shaunte started with a Tim Holtz Kraft-Core cardbase that she embossed and sanded.  And Core Tags? Yes, Please!!! (keep reading for more details on those ;) )

Did you know that with our Core Tags you can pop out the silver grommet?  So..if you want to emboss it…PERFECT! Or if you want to flip your tag over and use the smooth side to stamp…YOU CAN! And if you are working with some FAB-u-Lous embossing powders like we are from Stampendous then you are in luck. OH! And don’t forget the beautiful Stampendous sentiment stamp using the Cling Flower Path stamp:

And another gorgeous detail….

Sorry about the technical difficulties with Lydia Jackson’s blog yesterday. That was my fault SO we are letting you comment on her blog again today for a chance to win to make up for it…hope that works!!!

And for inspiration here today, we have a project from Design team Member Melissa Oliveira. You MUST check out the details on this layout. I know we were going for a bit of a fall theme here this week but Melissa just couldn’t stop and had to pull out her favorite Stampendous stamp, the Stampendous Jumbo Magnolia cling stamp.

Here is a little bit about this layout from Melissa: To create the pieced flower, I stamped the flower image three times; twice on a lightly sanded piece of whitewash and once on a piece of core’dinating Gemstones Cardstock. One of the Whitewash stamped images was embossed using an embossing folder, and the other was trimmed and used as the base for the flower embellishment. Petals were cut from the embossed and Gemstone stamped flowers and layered over the matching petals on the base flower. I added some Queen&Co. pearls to the center of the layered flower for added interest and texture. Leaves were stamped onto a piece of BasicGrey Core impressions and layered beneath the completed flower.

How about that for some stamping?!  Gorgeous. Gorgeous!

And a close up…

See you tomorrow!
