Hit New Heights!

What a great week! The Stampendous Design Team is so excited to be sharing our projects that feature the amazing products from Nathalie Kalbach! These sets include a two sided foam stamp, a cling rubber stamp, AND a stencil!  Like I said, AMAZING!




Today I created a very easy (but I like to think "sophisticated") birthday card. Really it took no time at all, ok, maybe 15 minutes start to finish.


"Hit New Heights!"
Here are the Supplies and Instructions:

Stampendous:
NKCFS03 Urban Scribble Foam Stamp, Cling Rubber & Stencil Set
SSC1170 Soaring Sentiments Perfectly Clear Stamps Set
DCP1005 Fitted Frames A Die Cut Set, Size L
MPW811 Mixed Media White Paper

Dreamweaver:
DWNHB-12 1/2" Brush #12 Natural Handle

Plus:
My Color Cardstock - Seafoam
Brilliance Inks - P. Orchid, P. Lavender, P. Jade
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Die Cut Machine

Step 1:  Cut a 7" x 10" piece of Seafoam paper and fold it in half to form an A7 card
Step 2:  Pat each of the Brilliance Inks randomly on the patterned side of the foam stamp
Step 3: Stamp the image on a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of the white paper, clean the stamp with water
Step 4: Ink the Cling Rubber Stamp with Tuxedo Black and stamp over the image you already stamped in color
Step 5:  Place the stencil over the "sky" area of the city and use the 1/2" stencil brush to add color with the P. Jade, remove the stencil and brush a little more color around the edge
Step 6:  Adhere the city to the card front
Step 7:  Stamp the saying on a small piece of white, use the fitted frames size L to cut the saying, and the matching larger L to cut a mat from a scrap of Seafoam
Step 8:  Use foam tape to add the saying to the card

Here's a close up:
