Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team has been sharing projects from the brand new October Catalog. I am loving so many of these stamps, and I hope that you do too! Today’s project features the Blooming Globe stamp, coincidentally, with another type of rainbow background (did you see my post on Monday?). I guess I’m getting all of these bright, cheery colors out of my system before the 31 Days of Halloween begins in a few days! Check out my directions on how to recreate this card yourself below.

1. Stamp the image with VersaFine ink on to Mixed Media paper.
2. Color the image with the Zig Clean Color Markers indicated.
3. Cut the image out. I chose to leave a white border around it.
4. Cut a piece of Smooth Bristol Paper to the size of 5 1/4″ x 3 3/4.”
5. Using Ink Blending Tools, swipe each of the Distress Oxides across the Bristol Paper in a horizontal line, in rainbow order.
6. Blend the colors as necessary to get a fully blended rainbow.
7. Spritz the Distress Oxides with water to get them to react. Blot off excess water after letting it sit for a minute or two to get lighter colors. Let dry completely.
8. Create the card base out of Yellow Corn cardstock, cut to the size of 5 1/2″ x 8.”
9. Temporarily place the Blooming Globe on the Oxide background to figure out placement for the sentiment.
10. Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat emboss with Detail White Embossing Powder.
11. Attach the Blooming Globe to the background, and the background to the card base.
