These are the awesome goodies that I won from the Stampendous and Tombow blog hop in September. It was actually double awesome because The winners were announced on my birthday. it was a hard choice on which stamp set to get but I figured there is pleanty of time to get Christmas stamps. I got a
These pencils are really great. They give a soft finish and I haven't had any broken leads. They aren't waxy like the Prismacolors so there's no waxy bloom. I do love my Prismacolors still but I can do without the broken leads.
I haven't used any of my embossing powders in a while, so I decided to bust them out. Not your average ep's but the beautiful Pearl Lusters by Stampendous in Sapphire, Amethyst and Carnelian. I used Colorbox pigment inks with the ep's and Stampendous Damask Bats. I used Glitter Silk Card stock by Core'dinations to die cut the moon and grass. I added some India ink black to the grass and smuged some on the moon to make them darker.
Stampendous Cling Create Fall Stamps are a fun set of rubber stamps. You can add the faces or leave them off for other holidays like Thanksgiving. You can add the hat or leave it off. The same with the stem. There are many other ideas for these versatile stamps on the Stampendous blog. They have a wonderful design team. The matching dies cut right on the lines so there is no white around the edges. I like that close cut look much better than having white around the edges. I also used some tiny paper flowers, a bat cupcake pick from dollar tree and a stamp from the Inkadinkado Gothic Toppers set for embellishments.
I hope you like my card and have a great day.
