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! The Prize Package includes the Lovely Garden Stamp Set; the Matching Lovely Garden Cutting Dies  from Stampendous; a Sand It Kit from Core’dinations which includes a sanding block, replacement sandpaper, and a “must-have” Dust Buddy clean up cloth; Core’dinations will also be sending the lucky winners some of their fantastic 6″ X 6″ paper pads.

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.

These April Flowers Need No Showers!

Last week our Design Team celebrated with a look at all the terrific Stampendous floral images! We always tell beginning stampers that if you just get some good flowers and a good set of greetings, you can make cards for any occasion. It’s so true! Flowers are appropriate for everything. And our Jumbo Cling Rubber Flowers come with a free Template and Mask so you can stencil backgrounds, mask the images, mask the backgrounds, use chalk, spritzy stuff, sponging, embossing…the sky is the limit! Let’s take a look at what our Design Team has done with these April Flowers!

Hello Stampers! Sorry to be absent for a bit, we’ve been tweaking our new website getting ready for the grand reveal. It just took a bit more tweaking than anticipated. Thanks so much for your patience as we’ve worked out the kinks. We’ll make a separate post for that before the end of the week!

Last week we didn’t get to post much, but our Design Team sure did. They were working with the best of Stampendous’ Inspirational offerings sending Easter thoughts out to all of you for our new month! Don’t you love the gorgeous samples by DT Member Wendy Price above? Such rich, luscious color. She’s fantastic! Hopefully you’ll enjoy the creative and gorgeous samples they all made! Hop around, leave them some love in the form of supportive comments! We’ll be back with more excitement tomorrow!

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.

Our Design Team has more inspiration for you today, too. And remember that tomorrow will be our BIG blog hop! You will have until the end of Sunday to comment and be entered to win some terrific prizes (hint, chalkboard ink is in one of the prize packages!). Here’s who is blogging today:

Creative Palette is…well… Creative!

Stampendous’ new Creative Palette Monoprinting Plate is the showpiece of our January 2014 Catalog. It is so versatile, you’ll love all the ways you can use it! And we’re guessing you can think of tons that even we haven’t tried! Which is why our March 2014 Challenge is to create something with Mixed Media. Start getting inspired now! (but don’t forget to enter our February Love Letters Challenge!)

Fran has fallen in love with the fun of monoprinting, and the 12 X 12 page above shows so many fantastic tricks for using our Creative Palette in different ways.  Click on the video link to watch her create this gorgeous project!

Plus Inspiration and Prizes!

Our Design Team has been playing with the Creative Palette, too! They’ll have lots of posts to inspire you this week! We’ll give away three Creative Palettes this week to commenters on our blog and the DT blogs, so leave some nice encouragement for them. Be sure we can tell where you live, as always, you have to have a US Mailing Address to win.
