Stack Art Challenge Week – Day 3

 

Jan_2014_SA_Elements

Offer a handful of mixed media bloggers a chance to play with glitter, color fragments, mica, adhesive, and kraftboard, then stand back and watch the explosion of creativity. We sent a group of bloggers the terrific Stack Art Element Kits you see here and challenged them to create something fun with our Stack Art Kraftboard, Stamps and Elements.

From Clean and Simple to Wild and Crazy we’ve been blown away by the creations this team imagined. Turns out that even though Stack Art is perfect for the beginning crafter to make gift tags, mementos, photo frames, placecards, and so much more; the possibilities really are endless.

Recently, Fran was invited to visit the folks at Scrapbook Expo and make an  additional video expanding the fun of Stampendous Stack Art. Check it out!

There are three components to our Stack Art Program, our prize package this week will include one of each:

  • The Stack Art Kraftboard Kit (all the kraftboard pieces for 4+ amazing creations; adhesive for all the kraftboard pieces; and sentiments to make each piece special)
  • The Stack Art Stamp Sets (an assortment of terrific background stamps and other images plus an acrylic handle)
  • The Stack Art Elements Kits (five jars of glitter, color fragments, flocking, or mica to adhere to your die cut adhesive)

Stampendous – To Die For!

We’ve had a terrific response to our flower dies we introduced in our April Catalog, so our July Catalog contained even more of these great tools!

Our dies are different! Instead of the cutting line being in the center of the metal like most dies, on ours the cutting line is right on the inside edge. This makes lining them up a little different, but what you see through the die is what you get when you cut.  It’s best to tape them to the paper (or thin metal or fabric or whatever) to make sure they don’t slip out of alignment. Or use a magnetic platform when cutting them.

We have two new sets for the Holidays. Leaves and Snowflakes. And each die set fits TWO sets of Cling Rubber stamps.

Design Team Member Suzanne Czosek made this amazing wreath for our July Catalog using the Leaves Die set and our new Spoonful Embossing Enamel and Elements Kits – click on the picture for the tutorial on our website.

Of course our wonderful Design Team has more projects “to die for” and shared them on their blogs this week! Check out the terrific inspiration and be sure to leave them some great comments!
