Stampendous and Core'dinations

2014_06_coredinations 

 Love all the inspiration we're seeing using Stampendous Stamps with Core'dinations' gorgeous papers! The texture and amazing colors just pop! We're happy to be partnering with them for this week of terrific designer projects!


 I stamped Friends Cup Stamp in Grey Flannel Memento Luxe Ink and fussy-cut it out. Did you notice a little shadow around the mug? I added a little shading with a grey chalk pencil and blended it out with a blending stump. Subtle, but it gives it a little dimension! 


I decided to play with some Spotted Core'dinations cardstock in grey. I sanded it and distressed the edges to reveal the core colour and it served as the base colour for my whole design:
