The Butterflies of Spring

Stampendous friend, Donna Cennimo, a decorative painter, created this gorgeous canvas featuring Stampendous butterflies and embossing powders. We are so excited that she shared them with us, and we thought you’d enjoy seeing this wonderfully colored nod to Spring.

Donna embossed each butterfly with two layers of Chunky Clear Embossing Powder then added colors as desired. She used Detail Black, Silver Tinsel, Purple, Blue, Chunky Gold and Chunky Silver on different areas of the butterflies. Then she attached them to one of her paintings and she has some left for other amazing projects.

Here are some closeups of the butterflies –

 

Thanks, Donna, for sharing such a pretty, Spring project with us. Your painting is wonderful and your army of butterflies are a colorful bit of cheer!!

We Love Laurel Burch

Colorful Laurel Burch Banner

Laurel Burch was all about love. She wanted to share the love that is the core connection between all living things, and her art clearly demonstrates this. You can learn lots more about Laurel and her journey at www.laurelburchstudios.com

Our newest designs for January from Laurel Burch are all about love as well, and birthday and friendship! But one of our very favorite sets from this release has been the new Laurel Burch Icons Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. This set of little doodles that Laurel included in most of her art provide a great opportunity to make backgrounds and borders with a Laurel Burch flair. They’re ideal embossed in gold or used with your monoprinting plate or other techniques. Here’s the set:

Merry and Bright Friday!

Merry and Bright Banner

It’s been Merry and Bright all this week with some great ideas for holiday projects!  In case you missed them here are MONDAY and WEDNESDAY‘s posts. Next week we’ll be sharing with all of our Laurel Burch images for Christmas! And there will be Prizes, be sure to tune in Monday! Today, we’re sharing awesome cards to add a little, special, sparkle to Christmas.

In addition to our great holiday stamps this year, we released some awesome new essentials. Have a look at some of these wonderful products!

First up is our brand new Twinkle Glitter! This vintage-looking glitter adds a ton of sparkle wherever it goes. We like to add a focal piece on top of our Sticky Panels and then fill the rest of the exposed adhesive with this blingy wonder. The random sizes and shapes of the granules just fill up the space and sparkle and twinkle when you turn the card. Stunning!

Here’s a swatch (you can click on any of these pictures to visit the products or projects on our website) so you can see the grain size and shape variations, it’s really cool.
