Two cards & a Stamp

I’ve got some fun cards to share with you using great Stampendous products! 🙂

I received the Cling Decorative Grate and the Steel Blue Glass Glitter, so that’s what I’ve put to use here!

I stamped the image on cardstock, trimmed it & used Helmar Zap-dots to pop the focal panel up. I used adhesive to apply the glitter, then tied some heavenly May Arts navy silk around the focal panel.

Next up, I went for a Halloween feel!

I used the same image, but stamped directly on orange cardstock. I layered ¾” orange velvet corduroy on top of 1” black tinsel ribbon. I cut the letters with my cricut, tied some 3/8” orange striped ivory grosgrain around the ‘b’, securing with black burlap string. I machine stitched all the layers in place.

Two totally different looks from the same image! Thank you to Stampendous for the fun products to create with! And thank you for your time! I hope you’ve been inspired!

    Your blue version is glorious! I love how the glass glitter looks paired with that beautiful ribbon. Wrapping the ribbon around the b is a very cute idea. Love them both! This has been lots of fun. Thanks for collaborating  with us.
