We’re joining today with some awesome crafters to help raise awareness of Autism by creating some really fun stuff!! 1 in 68 children in America is diagnosed with some form of autism, and we all need to learn more about this disorder and how to work with and help autistic people and their families. April is Autism Awareness Month. We hope you’ll hop all around the blogs and show us some wonderful, supportive spirit. There are prizes for lucky U.S. Winners from the comments!

All week long we are hopping with the design team from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. They’ll be sharing some of our newest holiday products while we show you how to stick in style with their amazing adhesives.
You KNOW there are prizes! We’ve got three lovely prize packages this week. Each includes a really fun selection of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products and one of our new Cling Stamp and Die sets (sssh… it’s a surprise!). How do you win??

THEN click on this Rafflecopter Link (it’s on their blog, too) and follow the instructions there. Easy! U.S. winners only, and our Official Rules are always HERE.
Today we want to share another amazing sample with our Winter White Cling Stamps and Cutting Dies Set. Snowflakes are always among our most popular choices, and when they have matching dies you can just cut out a flurry of them for some really great projects.
We use only Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L’s 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for popping up our elements here at Stampendous. They very generously supply them to us for all of our Store Display boards and we’re super grateful for their generosity! Here, Fran used them to pop up some new snowflakes over a gorgeous alcohol ink background by Jennifer Dove. Jennifer airbrushed a glossy white card with Copic Markers then spritzed it with Copic Blending Solution in a spray bottle. You can do this same technique with watercolors spritzed with water, or alcohol inks sprayed directly on the card. The perfect spot for your greeting may vary, so your cards will be different, just like snowflakes. Create your backgrounds a whole sheet at time and cut up for your cards. You can see this card up close by clicking on it above.
Come back tomorrow for more inspiration and more hopping fun!!

We have two great stamp sets with coordinating dies to share this week. On Monday we met our Poised Peacock and our Paisley Patterns. Both Cling Rubber Stamp Sets come with a free template for masking the images or creating super cool backgrounds. Both also have available, matching, cutting dies! You’ll love these gorgeous sets! (and Free Shipping with Promo Code BLG717 on orders over $50)
On Wednesday we took a closer look at our Poised Peacock. So today, let’s investigate our Paisley Patterns set a little more closely! This awesome set includes six stamps. Five are very definite elements and they have corresponding cutting dies in the die set. The sixth stamp is a wonderful background that is delightful colored in, tone on tone, or even used as a resist pattern. The included stencil/mask set for the five elements is perfect for masking/layering or for coloring them in with stencil brushes, sponges, paint, or other methods.
Fran has created a great video sharing her samples with these fun stamp images:
