Beauty to the Bone!

I was a bit skeptical of this stamp when I first saw it...but then.....I started to color her all up!  I have to say it is one of my favorite and I am quite pleased with the end result.  You can pick her up just in time for those spooky cards, or for that person who loves year round Spooky fun!  "Skull Roses" is one of the latest release from Stampendous.  You can pick up your stamp HERE, or at one of your local stores.

Stampendous and Authentique Come Together

How about some yummy Stampendous goodness and yummalicious Authentique paper all in one spot?  I say Heck yah!!  This week we are posting some fun stuff with both companies all in one place.  I was just itching to use this new released stamp from Stampendous and the paper was just right to use...I had to make a pie...Yup, I went there with this stamp!!


I used Authentique 6 x 6 Paper pad - "Latest and Greatest" as well as "Song" and "Botanic" from the Harmony collection for the background of this card.

After designing the pie I added the Crow Caw stamp, Black Glass Glitter and Chiffon Color Fragments to finish off the yumminess.  As you can see there wasn't a lot of coloring to be done which fit into my busy schedule at the moment.  I hope you find inspiration along the way.
