Stampendous New Release Week: Amaryllis

I have SO much fun planned this week...it's New Release Celebration Week with the Stampendous team!  Last week at CHA all kinds of amazing new stamps and essentials were released, and the celebrate the Stampendous team will be showing off new goodies on our blogs all week long.  Today I'm sharing a card using the new cling jumbo Amaryllis stamp as the focal point of this card (it wil be available on the website any day now, so keep watching!).  In the background I added the lovely Calligraphy Script in the background, for some contrast.  I colored the flower with my Spectrum Noir markers, and added Bronze Crushed Glass Glitter to the bottom.  Oh, and Black Crushed Glass Glitter to the flower centers! 

To celebrate my excitement over the new release goodies, I'll be giving away a different Stampendous stamp every day I share a New Release post this week!  All you have to do is comment on the post to win - I'll announce the winners for each post on Tuesday, July 31 (so please comment by Monday, July 30 at 6:00 PM EST).  Today, I'm giving away this lovely Fall Tendril (it's a great stamp for ALL year, not just fall, in my opinion!):

I like how you left most of the leaves bare to see the text. Do you know, I don't think I've ever seen you use red before, especially in such a bold way. Great contrast against the kraft.
