This is a repost. We are participating in Seth Apter’s Treasure Hunt today. He’s linking to tons of the buried treasure on the blogosphere, so grab a cool beverage and a kitten and prepare to be amazed. You can see links to the other participating artists on Seth’s blog at thealteredpage !!!

We sent some of the world’s best mixed media bloggers an assortment of our fun Stack Art products. We asked for their out of the box ideas and examples, and whew, you will be blown away as we share them this week!

You know you can make these simple, beautiful tag projects easily and quickly. But when you take the ingredients for a simple tag to the next level, WOW!

Our Stack Art Kits have three components:

  • The Stack Art Kraftboard Kit which includes all the kraftboard pieces you’ll need to make at least 4 amazing creations; die cut, double-sided adhesive for all the kraftboard pieces; and sentiments you can use to make each piece a special gift or card embellishment.
  • The Stack Art Stamp Sets which include an assortment of terrific background stamps and other images plus an acrylic handle.
  • The Stack Art Elements Kits which each include five jars of embellishing goodness to stick to your adhesive covered kraftboard pieces.

We’ve shown you in a series of videos how terrific these kits are for making ATC’s, mementos, place cards, photo frames, etc. You can check out the stack art videos on our YouTube Channel.

Going beyond what we’ve done before, we’ve got nine guest artists and our own design team showing us great ideas for Stack Art this week.

We’d love you to visit all their blogs, and leave your nicest, most insightful comments. We’ll be giving away three Stack Art prize packages this week based on your blog comments. Each Package will contain one Stack Art Kraftboard Kit, one Stack Art Stamp Set, and one Stack Art Elements Kit!
