Stampendous

 Happy Thursday!  I've got something different to share with you today, something not very many people know.  Last year I was asked by Stampendous to create some card samples using their stamps for their up coming catalog and these are two of the cards out of the ten that were published in the January 2010 Stampendous Catalog {pg. 117-119}.  The cards were to be created using the stamps, supplies and colors they had selected and to be clean and simple.  I know what some of you are thinking, at the time I was a Stampin' Up demonstrator but this was before SU had changed their demonstrator agreement.  Once Stampin' Up had issued the change in their demo agreement I was put in the tough spot of choosing to stay as a Stampendous Design Team member or to continue as a Stampin' Up demonstrator.  The choice was hard but I ended up signing the SU demo agreement and switching my blog to be all Stampin' Up.  Now that I've resigned as an SU demo I have the freedom to share and link to whom I like and that's why I'm excited to share these cards with you today.

Supplies: Spring Sprigs, Sunny Flowers (for sentiment) - Stampendous, Nestabilities dies, Ribbon, Copics, Glitter, Pop dots.

This is a close-up shot of the flowers that were stamped on the second card, its difficult to see but I added glitter to the tips of the flowers.

Supplies: Dandie Trio, Sunny Flowers (for sentiment) - Stampendous, Nestabilities dies, Copics, Glitter, Ribbon, Pop dots.
