A Stampendous Love

mother's love is "Stampendous"! I fell in love with this stamp the second I saw it. I adore elephants and this mama elephant snuggling her baby is just precious. This fabulous Stampendous stamp is perfect for paper piecing. This stamping technique is easy and fun and makes your stamps pop!.

To paper piece you simply pick out different patterned papers, and colored cardstocks. You then stamp your image onto each of your different mediums, carefully cutting out and placing or "piecing" your image together to give a demential look with all the different papers. I also used Copic markers on the mama elephant stamp and pop dots to give some more depth to the stamp. Paper piecing is easy and fun and gives that "wow" look to your projects. I think this card would be perfect for a new mother, or the perfect Happy Mother's Day card.

Here is a list of the supplies I used to make my "Stampendous Love" card.

Stamps: Stampendous Cling Rubber, Elephant Always Set
Card Stock: Bazzill Basics, teal blue, coconut white, rust orange
Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye So Sophie "pretty girl" Bo Bunny "Tutu Dot"
Embellishments: Pebbles glitter candy dots, pink

Wrights white wide lace
Copic Markers: W5 Warm Gray, W1 Warm Gray

Thanks for all your sweet comments!
