Rocking the Core’dinations this Week!

2014_06_coredinations

This week we’re playing with Core’dinations’ gorgeous papers! We love the fantastic texture and terrific colors!

Of course there are prizes! We’ll give away three packs of goodness!

Core’dinations is Back In The House!!

2014_06_coredinations

Welcome to another week long collaboration!  This week we’re playing with Core’dinations’ gorgeous papers! They always make a project pop with the addition of so much texture! Plus, they’re just plain yummy colors!

We love the way you can sand the papers to allow the coordinating color core show through. This card from our own Kristine Reynolds really highlights this fantastic technique. This works with embossing folders, metal dies (like those from our friends at Dreamweaver Stencils), or just sanding straight on the paper to create a distressed look.

Our new Blossom Beauty has rapidly become one of our favorite new products. And our fans agree. You absolutely MUST see the amazing things that our owner and designer Fran Seiford has done with this simple seeming stamp set. Check out the series of YouTube videos we’ve published showing you how to make this lady look just like any of your friends, or how to add chic, designer hairdos to her head for the latest fashion statement. She’s versatile beyond our wildest dreams.

The Color Fun Continues with Faber-Castell

faber castell gelatos

Our week of playing with Faber-Castell continues today, and we are LOVING all your comments! We’d be so super grateful if you could all run over to the Stampendous Facebook Page and like us there, too! Pretty please!

Several of you have said you’d like more information on how to use the gelatos. They can be used in so many different ways! Well, we found this fantastic video on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft website! Tiffany Johnson from Iheartart made this great video for one of our favorite customers Simon Says Stamp. We love how she gets right in there with her fingers. We need to do that more.

Bunches of you were excited about the castle like we were!! Ok, we’re not headed to Germany this week, but you CAN take a virtual tour of the castle and see some super awesome magnificence. Check that out HERE.

But for those of you who just want more INSPIRATION, we’ve got that for you today as well. In the office here I took a paper mache box and painted it with Faber-Castell Chalkboard paint. This paint went on really smoothly and dried very quickly. I put two coats on to cover it all and keep it smooth. The matte finish is just gorgeous and perfect for chalk/markers/pencils….

But, of course, I had to emboss on it. Our Q170 Zinnia embossed with White Embossing Powder and VersaMark ink looked amazing. I added the H303 Have I Told You the same way. Then I used the Neutral Art Grip Pencils to color in the flower. I did the petals in white and gray and the center in the goldish color. I highlighted everything with the Metallic PITT Pens set. Then the Stamper’s BIG White Pen provided the little dots, followed up by the gold metallic PITT Pen.  Super happy with the result, may be my Mother’s Day gift… hee hee.

Stampendous loves Faber-Castell!

faber castell gelatos

Ok, we’ve collaborated with a lot of terrific companies recently. But as far as I know this is the only one that owns it’s own CASTLE! Yep! You can actually take a tour! Cabinet-maker Kaspar Faber began making pencils in the 1660′s! A family owned business, Faber-Castell has risen from these humble beginnings to become internationally synonymous with fine writing instruments. In 1908 the company added colored pencils to their line, and their familiarity and quality with artists was established. They still make the highest quality writing instruments and artists supplies available, and we feel honored and lucky to be partnering with such a distinguished firm this week! We’re also excited that Faber-Castell is also a Shopatron company like Stampendous. This means that orders from the manufacturer’s website are actually filled by individual retailers across the country, supporting local communities and businesses.

Faber-Castell was extremely generous to our Design Team sending us tons of products from their Design Memory Craft range. Many stampers and scrapbookers will be familiar with Gelatos and other products from this fine company. These products are at the forefront of the Mixed Media movement in scrapbooking, stamping and home decor, a perfect kick off for Mixed Media March – our Monthly Blog Challenge. We hope you’ll enjoy the terrific inspiration we’ve got for you this week!

Be sure to leave comments! Like all Blog Hops we’ve got prizes this week! And believe me, they were as generous for our prizes as they were for our Design Team!
