The New Block for an Artist


Welcome to our “Block Party” week where creativity has many dimensions!

Artist trading blocks provide a multi-dimensional canvas for your artistic expression.  It’s never been easier to create, collect and share your style with Stampendous stamps and Essentials!

The creativity of a collaboration provides new ways of designing with the same styles you love from Stampendous and new product partners that complement so well together. Of course, we love playing with new toys so it’s a win-win for all of us.

There is a striking line up of designers posting today and we know that you’re going to love more inspiration so let’s get started “block” hopping through them. Did we mention there are prizes for you hoppers?


We have prizes!!!  We’ll choose three winners at random from the comments on all blogs in the hop. Then from those three we’ll randomly pick a GRAND PRIZE winner! Two of the winners will receive Stampendous PenPattern Petal and PenPattern Flutter cling stamps, just like you’ll see on Kristine Reynolds amazing ATB sample. They’ll also receive enough pre-cut, premium matboard from Sizzix to make two boxes of your own, plus some extra pieces for fiddly bits! The Grand Prize winner will receive the stamps as above, a whole package of matboard, AND the Sizzix die to cut your own ATB boxes! Uh, WOW!

If that weren’t enough, eligibility for these amazing prize packages has expanded to include our international fans too!

We’ve extended the commenting time to accommodate designers posting projects that received their Stampendous products through slow mail. So we’ve extended the deadline a whole extra week to give us, you and the designers time to enjoy the collaboration projects from the “block party” hop. The comment deadline will be Sunday, March 8th. We will continue posting links as we receive them from the Inspiration Team, so be sure to keep checking back. You get one entry for every comment, so you don’t want to miss the chance to leave a thoughtful comment on each project. For those who tend to get lost, we’ll post a “cumulative” link list of links so far on Saturday, February 28th and Saturday, March 7th. Then you can check your progress.

Here are today’s participating designers –

  1. Another amazing round of projects, incredible talent!! Couldn’t comment on Amy Bowerman, the link is not working and I couldn’t find a post on her blog. I’ll check back tomorrow. 🙂


  2. Another FAB group of projects with terrific inspiration!

    FYI.. there are a couple of glitches in the links today (Seems the Amy’s are jinxed. ha):

    Amy Hurley-Purdie’s link doesn’t go to her blog… I got there by clicking the link under Our Design Team on the left of the Stampendous Blog

    Amy Bowerman’s link gets you to an error page on her blog. Perhaps it’s just too early, as the most recent post on the HOME page is from January (an amazing project, tho! )


  3. This has been a fantastic hop. So many wonderful ideas. I can’t wait to get to try my hand at decorating some of these boxes.
    thanks for the chance to win and to see these great boxes.


  4. WOW!! I really need to get this die!!! Such amazing creations from the designers! Can’t wait to see what tomorrow is going to bring with the grand finale! I know it is going to knock our socks off! See you next post!
