Wanted: Halloween Sprite


We're wrapping up the New Release Celebration week with Stampendous today - it's been such a fun week showing off the newest goodies!  The whole team is coming together today to show off some amazing inspiration...and chances to win three prize packs from Stampendous!

I'm sharing this fun project I made with Halloween Sprite.  Isn't she darling?  Here's a closer look at how I put the whole thing together:
  • Paint easel and plaque with acrylic paint; set aside to dry.  Once dry, adhere cut piece of cork directly to plaque. 
  • Stamp Halloween Sprite image on card stock; apply distress ink to edges with a sponge. Spritz the top with water, roll into scroll shape (heat set for quicker drying). Apply Aged Ochre enamel to scroll using Versamark pen, heat set from underneath. Adhere to cork panel on a tilt.
  • Stamp Halloween Sprite image on separate piece of cardstock; color as desired with alcohol markers (see supply list at end of post for complete list of markers used). Fussy cut and adhere using foam tape.
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 (so comment on each New Release Week post, for even more chances to win)!  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 a fantastic pack of brand new Christmas sentiments.  Included are Glory to God, First Christmas, Scripty Blessings, Seek Him, and Jesus Season: (all shown below, clockwise beginning top left)

Don't forget, most of my teammates are showing off new products from Stampendous today as well!  Not only do some of them have their own blog giveaways, Stampendous will be drawing a winner for THREE great prize packs. Take a look:



How do you win it? It's easy! THREE of the bloggers today will be choosing a random commenter from their blog, and those lucky people will be announced on the Stampendous blog Tuesday, July 31 (please leave comments by Monday, July 30 at 11:59 PM PST). The more places you leave a comment, the better your chances are to win!   Below is the list of team members who are sharing inspiration today:
