Happy Birthday, America!

We’re celebrating the birthday of our nation this week with the cutest little mice on the block! Our House-Mouse Designs® Star Spangled Mice are all wrapped up in America! In case you missed the first round of inspiration, you can catch it here – MONDAY  (we fixed the broken links, too).

Look at this adorable wreath that our very own Monika Thomas made! Two versions featuring the fantastic products from DIY Bangles! This project uses their 9″ Floral Craft Ring which they generously donated to our design team. The ribbons and stars are from our ALWAYS generous friends at May Arts Ribbon. The papers are from our also generous friends at Canvas Corp! (It’s so fun knowing all these folks who share well with others!)

We chose three blogs at random from all the projects and then one commenter from each of those blogs. We attempted to verify that winners had U.S. mailing addresses. If you don’t, please let us know so we can choose someone else. So sorry that we can’t mail things like resin overseas for contests, customs is just too confused by those things.

Remember We’re Blog Hopping Tomorrow!

Tomorrow we’ll start our terrific Blog Hop with the ICE Resin® team and the Designers from Imagine Crafts®! Our team is so excited because they have just loved playing with the resin products and the gorgeous Rue Romantique bezels, ribbons, and beads. Their creations will astonish you, and you’ll get so much inspiration for your own projects. And of course the Tsukineko® products we receive from Imagine Crafts are among our very favorite toys for every application! In fact, we’ll be sharing a Blog Hop with our friends from Imagine Crafts later this month (May 19-23). Don’t miss it.

To get you warmed up for tomorrow’s hop we have a few designers sharing ideas and inspiration today!  First, we’d like to share this gorgeous necklace from Designer Debbie Cole! Like yesterday’s piece it features the terrific Vintage Ladies Perfectly Clear Stamp™ Set from Stampendous. This set was specially designed by Fran Seiford at Debbie’s request to make smaller images that easily fit into a bezel for dynamic pendants, rings, earrings, etc. It contains 4 lovely ladies, a small version of our super-popular Rose Corset, plus backgrounds and words. It’s really a must-have.

Here’s Debbie’s necklace created for our January Catalog and our show at CHA.

Making Jewelry with Stampendous

Making your own jewelry has become such a huge trend in crafting. What could be more fun with all those gorgeous beads and findings available now than a pendant you crafted yourself. It’s so much more personal when you give a gift that has special meaning for you and your recipient.

Our Design Team has had a great deal of fun with various bezel styles and resin products creating stamped focal points for jewelry. This beautiful choker/necklace is a wonderful example by Design Team Alumni Stephanie Lee. It features our SSC1194 Vintage Ladies Perfectly Clear Stamp™ Set. This set was designed specifically for jewelry making. The beautiful bezel, ribbon, and beads shown are from the Rue Romantique collection by Kristen Robinson for ICE Resin®. These bezels are delicately styled and really take advantage of the self-doming qualities of the ICE Resin.

Today Design Team Member Suzanne Czosek is using ICE Resin on her blog post. She’s also using the Vintage Ladies in addition to some butterflies and other stamped images. Check out her post and leave her some love! Then be sure to come back and visit us tomorrow for more inspiration then Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the BIG BLOG HOP!  You’ll be so inspired!!

 

Playing with ICE Resin

Hello Stampers! We sure hope you enjoyed our blog hop with the Dreamweaver Stencils team last week. We really appreciate all the nice comments everyone left on our blog and those of our team members. Thanks so much for checking out the art. We’ll announce the winners tomorrow, so stay tuned!

This week we’re joining with two more craft industry partners, ICE Resin and Imagine Crafts. We’ll be using our stamps, Imagine Crafts’ Tsukineko® Staz-On™ ink and ICE Resin, bezels and embellishments to make some terrific jewelry. We know some of you have looked at this process when we’ve shared it before and probably thought, “I should try that someday!” Well, there’s no time like the present. This process is so easy and simple that you really need to just dive in, you’ll fall in love with it, we promise, and you’ll be creating jewelry for yourself and all your friends before you know it. The biggest benefit of these projects is that you never have to wonder what you’ll do with it when it’s done! People are so excited to wear your creations!

Our Decorative Painting Artist, Debbie Cole, has fallen in love with Resin Creating. She’s inspired us to make several Perfectly Clear Stamp™ Sets of smaller images that are ideal for making jewelry and resin projects. You can see one of Debbie’s terrific projects on her blog – HERE   This project was published recently in Just Steampunk Magazine Vol 4 (along with a lot of other great art from our team!)

Our other designers as well as those on the ICE Resin and Imagine Crafts teams have made some stunning creations to wow you. The official hop for prizes will be a little different this time. We’ll post some more ideas tomorrow and Wednesday, then the “real hop” will be Thursday through Sunday. Just remember to leave comments everywhere you can and you’ll be sure to be entered for the great prize package we’re offering. The lucky winner will get some ICE Resin, bezels, Staz-On Ink, and, of course, some terrific Stampendous Perfectly Clear Stamps designed especially for your jewelry making projects.
