We have winners! We want to thank all of you who came out and commented at our block party, leaving such nice and thoughtful comments. Without you there would be no party! It takes all of you to really have a fun time doing these collaborations and this one was the best.

Eileen Hull, the Inspiration team, and these fun die cut cubes were so inspiring and amazing we decided to make a special page as a legacy to our collaboration. You can see it’s home here or click on the image below. We’ll be able to enjoy these projects in one neat gallery now!

We will continue posting links as we receive them from the Inspiration Team, so be sure to keep checking back.

The New Block for an Artist

ATB_Blog_hop

Welcome to our “Block Party” week where creativity has many dimensions!

Artist trading blocks provide a multi-dimensional canvas for your artistic expression.  It’s never been easier to create, collect and share your style with Stampendous stamps and Essentials!

The creativity of a collaboration provides new ways of designing with the same styles you love from Stampendous and new product partners that complement so well together. Of course, we love playing with new toys so it’s a win-win for all of us.

There is a striking line up of designers posting today and we know that you’re going to love more inspiration so let’s get started “block” hopping through them. Did we mention there are prizes for you hoppers?

The comment deadline will be Sunday, March 8th. We will continue posting links as we receive them from the Inspiration Team, so be sure to keep checking back. You get one entry for every comment, so you don’t want to miss the chance to leave a thoughtful comment on each project.

Nursery Blocks Just Grew Up

ATB_Blog_hop

We are so excited to be working with Eileen Hull’s Scoreboards™ box die along with the Artist’s Trading Block Inspiration Team to create some fun and inspiring multi-dimensional art, we’re like children playing with nursery blocks.

These artists blocks are one of the easiest ways to pop up your creative canvas from the convenience of a die cut, eliminating the need for a craft knife and straight edge rule. Once the mat board is die cut, look how easy it is to put together.

These Blocks Stack Up Well

ATB_Blog_hop

Come explore art on all sides as we bring technique and style together.  These are the building blocks of creativity after all.  Learn new ways to create within your current style and find inspiration to try something new.

eileen and scotty

At Stampendous we had an opportunity to meet Eileen as she traveled around the country teaching classes in her vintage trailer, Scotty. She stopped by our place, and we decided a collaboration was in order. She let us have a trading block die and each Stampendous designer received enough premium matboard (Thanks, Sizzix!!) to create two blocks for our January Catalog.  Talk about being shoved “out of the box”!

Of course our team met the challenge with skill and creativity! And the creations began to flow in! We know this form of crafting will spark your interest and give your mojo a serious boost!

Block Party Week Starts Today!

ATB_Blog_hop

We are having a “Block Party” and everyone’s invited!

This week Stampendous is joining the Inspiration Team from Eileen Hull Designs where we are encouraged to think outside the “block” and create with the Scoreboards™ XL Square Box Die designed by this incredibly talented artist.

EHhead-225x300

Artist and Designer Eileen Hull has been crafting her whole life, and for the last decade has focused on designing products for crafters. Her signature line of ScoreBoards™ dies for Sizzix have created some fantastic tools that have gone far beyond what even she envisioned when designing them. One of these has given birth to the Artist Trading Block. Designed as a box die with the possibility for a positionable window in one side, this tool has taken off and given rise to some of the most creative projects imaginable. With the help of Amy Bowerman she has assembled a team of designers that can take each of her new products to the limits and beyond. To quote their site, The Artists on the Block.
