It's Stampendous!!!

Hi crafters!!!  Danielle a.k.a. FitterTwit here with another installment from our wonderful design team... well, at least part of it.  With the long holiday weekend and kids on break from school, a few of our teamies are taking a little break.  The rest of the design team, however, turned up the heat to bring you some FANTASTIC designs featuring Stampendous images.  Let's check it out!!!

 We're gonna kick this off with Gayl's surprising project.  It's a rare thing for Gayl to show off her card making prowess so I'm even more thrilled to not only share it with you all, but REALLY see how she put this one together cuz it's GORGEOUS!!!
The image is Stampendous stamp called Christmas Dreams.  She added painted Radiant Pearls and flocking and finished with a gift tag.  I'm LOVING all those holiday layers to her matting.  This card is just so vintage and absolutely wonderful!!!!

 Next up we have Marijo who is trying her hand with my beloved Copic Markers!  I'd say she's well on her way by the looks of her AWESOME winter card!!!  It looks incredible!!! Tis the season, right folks???

Here is a close-up of Marijo's masterpiece.  It features Angel Kisses stamp from Stampendous with the image being stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black (important when coloring with Copic markers). For the snow and the fur on the jackets, she used a Snow Marker made by Marvy Uchida.  It certainly gave her beautiful creation quite the dimensional effect!!!

With these amazing cards I'm reminded that Christmas is right around the corner.  If you're looking to get started on your Christmas cards this year, head over to Paper Vineyard for everything you need to get started right and see these wonderful creations in person!  Don't forget that Grapevine Designs for the holidays is also in-store now!!!  What a great way to get a jump on gift-giving too!!!  See you there!

UPDATE:  TWO ADDITIONS!!!  Not that I'm a slacker or anything, but here's MY addition to this week's DT Stampendous Challenge... sorry so late!  It features Stampendous' Tweet Top Hat (minus the birds) Copic markers (hiya Marijo), Graphic 45 paper, Bazzill paper and my beloved Purple Monster (for the corners).

And Krista ran her colored Grapes Stampendous stamp.  She sure knows what she's doing with those Copic markers.  Easy to see why Copics are such a favorite around here!!!
