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)

Visit all the blogs below, and leave an insightful comment. We’ll give away three Stack Art prize packages this week based on your blog comments.

You know you can make these simple, beautiful tag projects easily and quickly. But when you take the ingredients for a simple tag to the next level, WOW!

Our Stack Art Kits have three components:

We’ve shown you in a series of videos how terrific these kits are for making ATC’s, mementos, place cards, photo frames, etc. You can check out the stack art videos on our YouTube Channel.

Going beyond what we’ve done before, we’ve got nine guest artists and our own design team showing us great ideas for Stack Art this week.

We’d love you to visit all their blogs, and leave your nicest, most insightful comments. We’ll be giving away three Stack Art prize packages this week based on your blog comments. Each Package will contain one Stack Art Kraftboard Kit, one Stack Art Stamp Set, and one Stack Art Elements Kit!

CORRECTION!! Stampendous-DecoArt World Tour!

In our post for the Stampendous/DecoArt/Princeton Artists Brushes hop on Thursday we made a mistake! The video we posted as Susie Wolfe is actually Noreen Burgess of Just Us! Susie’s projects for DecoArt were completely different! So here’s a corrected version for you! So sorry to Susie and Noreen for confusing your projects!! Both are amazing!

We recently had a chance at the Society of Decorative Painters Convention in San Diego to meet with the folks at DecoArt and really gush over their products! There we met Susie Wolfe and we had a chance to catch her in action demonstrating our very own Stampendous Stack Art! Susie showed us how easy it is to make fantastic Mixed Media pieces with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics.

Below, Noreen Burgess, CDA of Just for You shows you her technique using the Stampendous Creative Palette over a practice sheet as a practice pad. Noreen and her friend Helen Stadter hand paint each practice sheet and sell them at SDP events. Just one more way the Creative Palette makes it easier for painters to get to the fun parts of painting.
