Stampendous October Release Blog Hop

Children Play...

I love playing with this fun new set from Stampendous called Children Play.  I've paired this sweet little image with another new set called Thoughtful Wishes ...lots of cute curvy sentiments.  And speaking of fun, do you just love the Purple Color Fragments combined with the Aged Gold Embossing Enamel? Really reminded me of fall! 

I stamped the image using Memento Black Tuxedo Ink, added a little color with a couple of Copics, used the Fran•táge Technique to add the Gold Embossing Enamel and Purple Color Fragments.  Then I rounded the corners, added this awesome pleated ribbon from May Arts, punched a scallop edge and matted the purple card stock onto a mustard card base. 

Check out some of the new images in the Stampendous October Catalog.

There's lots of inspiration to be had, and prizes too; so be sure to follow along on this great New Release Blog Hop! If you happen to get lost along the way, go back to the Stampendous Blog.
