It's Shape-Shifting Month with Stampendous!

We have a brand new challenge with the Stampendous team this month!  Each Saturday this month, we'll be challenging ourselves (and you!) to make a shaped card or project - something other than the traditional square or rectangular card. Doesn't that sound like fun?    


      So, maybe I went a little overboard for the challenge. My excuse is that actually this was a complete project from a year ago that I never had an opportunity to post, and since I didn't have time to create something new for the challenge, this is what you get! This entire party set centers around the Stampendous Cling Cupcake XL image, stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink over papers from October Afternoon's "Fly a Kite" series, to create paper-pieced invites, tags, bags, and a banner. Stampendous Dot Sparkler Class A' Peels were the "sprinkles" on the cupcakes (tip: don't have every color of Dot Sparklers available? Color the silver ones with permanent markers!), with Baker's twine, buttons, rick rack, and lace embellies. Each cupcake bottom was cut slightly larger than the stamped image and corrugated for texture and that real cupcake liner look. The invite is a slider card with the info computer generated for a fun "Cuppa-Cake-Date". Who wouldn't love that? The tissue in the gift bag has also been stamped with the cupcake image in various ColorBox Chalk Ink colors.

    




This month promises to be a fun challenge with the variety of shapes that the team will come up with. Why not play along? Need more inspiration?
