Inspired By The Sea – Vicky Papaioannou

IMG_0550-768x433_vicky_papaioannou

Vicky Papaioannou at Clips n Cuts blog is an art journal and card maker extraordinaire  She lives in Greece, surrounded by the incredible Mediterranean Sea which inspired her latest journal page using some of our beach themed products!

She has a splendid video to watch with great detail for your inspiration into a porthole view journal page design. (plus we have to admit we’re in love with her gorgeous accent!)

Stop by her blog post today for more on this fabulous project.

Vicky used our Seashells stamps set, included template and die set, plus the Beach 5-Jar Embossing Kit for her project. We just love what she did with them.

Steam Pumpkin Gears Frame by Debbie Cole

We are adding painting to our Stencil Thursday post because well, we are still having a great time at the Heart of Ohio Tole painting convention. With all of our wonderful stencil we have from Dreamweaver Stencils and Fran’s metal stencils there are plenty to add accents to your painted projects.

Stencils can add wonderful texture in any of your painted decor pieces like Debbie Cole’s Steam Pumpkin Frame shown above. The gears in the background create a fabulous depth and mat the floating painted Steam Pumpkin image amazingly!

Or do you think he’ll branch out into a Decorative Painting frenzy and create some wonderful projects with the latest Stampendous Holiday images? Well our artistic consultant Debbie Cole, CDA, while not a mouse, did just that. She creates some incredible projects for every one of our catalogs, but for our July 2016 Catalog she really surpassed even herself.

We’ll be sharing her projects on our blog all week this week, because it’s the Heart Of Ohio Tole convention in Columbus, Ohio! Stampendous is there with our latest Holiday products and projects. Come see us on the Exhibit Floor. No need for membership to shop, watch painting demonstrations, and learn, learn, learn.

Our wonderful Design Team are sharing on their blogs as well!! Check out how much fun we have when we play in the paint!! We bet you’d love it, too!! Join us each day to share in the fun! And if you’re in the Columbus area…be sure to head over to HOOT!

We have an exciting hop this week using some great embellishment products by Creative Impressions Inc. This company has been in business for decades servicing the papercrafting industry first as a retailer and has transitioned over time to a manufacturer and distributor worldwide of quality fiber and hardware embellishments.

Our design team received gorgeous ribbon on neatly organized ribbon cards and some amazing hardware goodies in time to create samples for the July 2016 Holiday Catalog! We challenged the team to pick out their favorite projects to share this week and we think they will rock the week with great inspiration! Oh yes there are going to be prizes, too!
