Now for my card...

Today I'm keeping with the Stampendous weekly theme of "By the sea"  and used the Seaside Chair Perfectly Clear Set. It is a great set to use for summer and comes with several different sayings. 
1.  The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with pencils.  
2.  The sand is Mushroom Embossing Powder which was sprinkled on and heated from underneath so it wouldn't blow off.  
3.  The white part of the water is Crystal Micro Glitter that was glued on using a Zig 2 Way marker.
4.  After the panel was glued to kraft colored paper, it was glued onto a white card and on top of three thin pieces of ribbon with the same thicker ribbon tied into a knot and glued to the bottom, I love the look of matching ribbon in different sizes!  
5.  To glue everything in place 3-in-1 glue from Beacon Adhesives was used.

Stampendous and Spellbinders Together Again



It’s summer time and we are hopping with some fabulous companies in the Summer Road Trip Partner Hop with Spellbinders.
Stampendous Stamps is hopping all three days with some fabulous summer inspiration from the design team and on Wednesday two of our designers will be featured a tutorial with some new Spellbinders products! How fun is that!

Prizes

Spellbinders is having a great giveway during this hop with three daily winners and one grand prize winner! Check out the details here.
Now here is how my card was made
1.  Dry emboss gold and silver papers using Spellbingers 3D M-BOSSABILITIES Basket Weave embossing folder.
2.  Die cut pears using Dreamweaver Stencils Pear Die and set aside.
3.  Dry emboss a spiced orange panel with the same embossing folder. r
4.  Rub Golden Glitz Delicata pigment ink from Tsukineko directly onto the raised embossed area. 
5.  Now it's time to Frantage by lightly sprinkling Shabby White Embossing Enamel (HERE is a link to the Stampendous youtube channel where you can find tutorials on this and many other techniques) over the panel and heating from underneath so the powder doesn't blow off. Glue this to a golden yellow card.
6.  I had a piece of background paper on my desk I had made a while back using the NK Studio Grunge Set and layered it onto golden yellow paper then glued it to the card using 3-IN-1 glue from Beacon Adhesives.
7. The gold pear is glued to the card while the silver one is popped up using 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
8.  Stamp sentiment from the Life Words Perfectly Clear Set onto an oval that has been sponged with Tea Dye ink and sprayed with gold, with Tuxedo Black Memento. Pop up on card.
