More Neon Stampendous

Stampendous and Imagine Crafts Header

Welcome back! We're on Day 5 of our collaboration with the folks at Imagine Crafts! We're just super excited about these terrific inks and the Radiant Neon™ just have us feeling all summer time and happy! Combining them with Stampendous Images and terrific Fran•táge Color Fragments has made some super cheery, bright inspiration for you!! Plus you have a chance to WIN!  

STM Imagine Crafts Prize Package 

I made a few quick and easy birthday cards with PenPattern Dark Rubber Stamp from Stampendous and the bright, fun Radiant Neon Inks. 




To create the main panel of this card I sponged the Radiant Neon Ink directly on to the stamp pad with ink blushers.


This is how the panel looked after stamping.  Then I trimmed it down and made my card.
I used the same technique for this one but I added some of the Stampendous Neon Fragments which pair perfectly with the Radiant Neon Inks from Imagine Crafts!

For my final card I stamped the PenPattern Dark Rubber Stamp with Tsukineko VersaMark ink and embossed with Detail white embossing powder.

Then I sponged Radiant Neon Ink on the panel with Ink Blushers.


I used a baby wipe to blot off the excess ink.

And then I created the card!
The birthday sentiment I used on these cards is from Say it Today perfectly clear stamps by Stampendous.

All your work is fabulous, Kristine.
Can't find a contact email for you, but wanted to ask...I get a Feedblitz that combines you and Dreamweaver. Not sure why they combine, but know you are a designer for DW also. BTW, I live in Newbury Park and retired from my HR job. LOL How do you find time to do all these lovely cards?
