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.

It was a huge favorite with our Design Team this year. Here you can see a sample by Kristine Reynolds using the Twinkle Glitter behind our beautiful Pinecone Decoration stamp. You can see the extreme level of twinkle this glitter throws out!

Another great new product we released this season was our Ice Pink Embossing EnamelIce Pink joins last year’s Rose Gold and Iced Blue in the Frantage Embossing Enamels line. These pearly metallics are holiday perfect! Photographs cannot do them justice!

This terrific sample from Louise Healy uses the Ice Pink Embossing Enamel over the top of Silver Embossing Paste  and the Ornament Mix stencil to create a fantastic molten magic card! It’s magical! You can find the directions and supplies on our website here!

You can click on the picture to be taken to the product on our website.

Smiling in a Merry Little Christmas

[If you’re looking for our 31 Days of Halloween Post – It’s HERE with our participating Design Team inspiration and this week’s contest]

This time of year it’s so fun to sit around and wait for those first flurries of snow! The anticipation of building that first snowman of the year! What a fun time Winter can be!

Our Smiling Snowman Cling Rubber Stamp Set with matching dies is perfect for crafting yourself a little bit of cozy Winter fun!

Our own Fran Seiford also designed them to work perfectly with our Pop Up Stages Cutting Dies. And she’s made this adorable card to show us!

Smiling Snowman Pop Up By Fran Seiford

It’s so fun and frosty with the glitter on the scarves and gloves! Plus the little “doily” shape where the words go is made from one of the “edger” dies in our older Build a Pop Up Die Set.  Pop up cards like this are easy when you have helpful cutting dies to make it quickly. This adorable card also uses the charming trees in the Smiling Snowman set. And our Creative Palette makes the perfect Snowy Day background.

Elements of Excitement!

Pinecone Ornament by Kristine Reynolds

This week we’re celebrating those cool Elements that make our holiday cards so exciting. And we’re offering a special shout out to our newest family favorite, Twinkle Glitter!

Fran’s Glitzy Adhesive Technique and Encrusted Adhesive Technique are perfect for making a glittering area of bling behind any focal point layer. They’re super easy to do! Just apply a layer of our Sticky Panels, adhere your focal point on the adhesive area, then sprinkle your favorite blings on the remaining, exposed adhesive… Voila!! If you use embossing powder, you’ll want to heat it, but you can mix embossing enamels, glitters, mica, color fragments, glass glitter and more for some ultimate excitement.  There are sooo many looks you can achieve!

 

As you can see, the Design Team has lots to share with you today!! Click below to see more of their great projects, some of them have more than one, because they posted on Wednesday as well! Leave everyone some love so we can enter you in the drawing to win a jar of Twinkle Glitter.

Part of Your World 1: Mermaids and More

We’ve been sharing some fun with mermaids this week! Stampendous is lucky to be licensing the wonderful artwork of Laurel Burch, and we were especially excited to add her Mermaid Fishes Cling Rubber Stamp Set and Cutting Dies to our lineup this April. (Check out our whole April Catalog HERE)

We have so much inspiration to share with you using this wonderful stamp set! Check out all the ideas below. Feel free to click on any of the images to see it larger.

 

Still more exciting is this gorgeous sample that Fran Seiford, Stampendous Owner and Founder, made with her fun and dynamic Encrusted Adhesive Technique!

 

This gorgeous card looks so lush and complex, but it’s so super-easy to make! Just cut your cardstock, stamp, color and die cut your mermaid and her fish friends, then grab a panel of your favorite double-sided adhesive sheets. We carry two kinds, Sticky Panels and the Dreamweaver Double-Sided Mounting Paper. Place your panel down on your cardstock. Peel off the protective sheet, and place your die cut images. Then fill in the space with color fragments, glitters, and the embossing powders/enamels of your choice. Heat to set, and MAGIC!  Want to see it in action? Check out the video below.
