Just Add a Little Dazzle!


This week we have a special collaboration for you (and yes, there are PRIZES)! We’re playing with Add a Little Dazzle’s Metal Sheets all week, and you’ll be thrilled at the looks you can get when you combine this gorgeous product with stamps, dies, powders, etc!

The company very generously sent each of our Design Team members an assortment of their gorgeous metal. You can punch it, stamp on it, die cut it, cut, sand it to reveal its silver lining, the possibilities are endless! You’ll love playing with this product, and we know you want to win some!

We’re offering three prize packages in exchange for comments on the blog posts this week. The prize package consists of the Stampendous Blossom Beauty Stamp set, the Blossom Beauty Cutting Dies and an Assortment Package of gorgeously colored metal sheets.

Prize Package from Add a Little Dazzle

Here’s my sample using the Blossom Beauty. I die cut the flowers after I stamped them with StazOn. I stamped the Butterfly with our W120 Rattan Weave stamp before die cutting him and stamped it on the card front as well. The butterfly is from the Lovely Garden Die Set. Notice that I added our Gold Holographic Dot Sparklers Class A’Peels™ Stickers to the flower center for even more dazzle!

Thursday Treats!

Fall is just around the corner and Halloween is on its way. We just can’t resist this season with spooky fun and tiny treats! There’s candy in the office, Halloween decor (lots of it courtesy of our Design Team samples!), and tricky fun around every corner. In case you missed the fun earlier, here are the posts from MONDAY, TUESDAY, and WEDNESDAY this week.

Our adorable friends from House-Mouse Designs® find this season irresistible, too! Artist Ellen Jareckie has given Monica, Maxwell, Amanda, Muzzy and Mudpie an irrepressible urge to dress up and go looking for candy! They’ve got quite a sweet tooth!  Our Design Team loves to color these adorable critters, and they’ve got some delightful inspiration for you today.

Ellen’s Gruffies® like Halloween, too! Booda and Pebble have gathered some treats, but Pebble has spilled his! Poor thing, I’m sure Booda will help him pick them up, but some may end up in her basket! Have a gander at this adorable card that Suzanne Czosek colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarelle watercolor pencils – you can try this project yourself on our website HERE.

Fran•táge a Friendly Greeting

These beautiful collage stamps we’re featuring this week capture perfectly the Fran•táge style. Vintage, shabby chic, a bit timeworn and well-loved (or neglected), all these elements lend a charm and beauty to items and greetings. We’ve done the work for you with collages of vintage and original images combined with Fran’s flair for composition to create these gorgeous stamps. Each with a small space perfect for the greetings from our Quotes Perfectly Clear Stamps™ sets.

The design team has been sharing all week, and they’ve more to share today! Hope you’ve enjoyed the inspiration and might want to add a couple of these images to your collection!

Kristine Reynolds made this gorgeous card without a greeting! So festive and sweet with all the butterflies adding so much texture, and using the Encrusted Jewel Technique on the edges of her focal point!


Here’s some more inspiration from our terrific team!
