Stampendous Week Continues with Two More Cards (and a Chance to Win!)

Today I am sharing two more cards I made with the new stamps I received from Stampendous recently. I love this Coffee Friend Curio Stamp and created this card before displaying the pretty curio in my stamp room. Stampendous Curio Stamps are both high quality rubbber stamps and pretty gifts for any crafty person you know- including yourself! If you would like to win two Curio stamps and a Stampendous background stamp and the card I shared Monday, watch, share and comment here.

My first card today was fun to make for a dear coffee loving friend. I sprayed the kraft cardstock background with the new Tim Holtz Distress Resist Spray and then when it was dry, distressed the edges and sponged on Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I paper pieced the Coffee Friend Curio stamped image and attached with pop dots to raise, and stamped the sentiments from the Stampendous Brushed Wishes set. Here is the surprise on the inside of the card:

 I created a gift card holder with Stampendous dies and stamps and inserted a Starbucks gift card.

When I was playing with my new Tim Holtz Distress Resist Sprays I created this sunshine background too using glossy paper and a Tim Holtz stencil. I sponged on yellow ink and stamped the perfect sentiment from Stampendous using a stamp platform. The pretty flower is the Cling Coneflower die with a matching die from Stampendous. I stamped it several times and raised each layer with mounting tape. I added some Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops to the center of the flower.

I want to thank Stampendous for the wonderful stamps and dies I received to create all the cards and gift boxes I shared this week, as well as the extra stamps I can give away to one lucky subscriber here on my YouTube channel.  It could be you!

I am entering the first card in the birthday challenge at Simon says Stamp Wednesday and the April Link Party at CropStop. Thanks for helping me #share the joy of creativity!

The layers on the flower (of the second card) really make it "pop!"

What lovely cards! Love the effect of the distress resist spray. I recently added it to my crafty stash but haven't yet played with it. Thanks for inspiring me to do so.
