Friday is here and we have a fun twist to the spring theme for this week. The stamp images in the spotlight today all have beautiful blossoms in creative containers!
Our Bicycle Basket stamp is full of blossoms and ready for a fresh delivery to your project and it also works great with our Pop Up Stages Die Set for a beautiful spring or summer theme card. Watch this video for a quick way to make the basket of flowers pop.
A children’s wagon is full of pretty planted pots to stroll around the garden looking for the perfect place to set them.
It is time to start hearing cheerful birds outside your patio door and we have an adorable Watering Can stamp with a bird who has a song! It’s just the right size for a gift tag, ATC card and more!
It was great to spotlight our newest spring and garden products this week and you can see them on our website with the rest of our Flower Garden, Spring and Summer selection anytime you need inspiration or new ideas but for today we still have more to share from our design team!
We made it to All Hallow’s Eve, one more time around the crafty cauldron of Halloween inspiration! We dusted off our project coffin and have some eerie treasures for today, we hope you all have a fun, safe celebration with a few spooky treats!
We dusted off our project coffin and have some eerie treasures for today, let’s take a look at four projects old and new!
Lea Fritts’ project is haunting us with a character skeleton and a happy greeting! What a frightful and fun card! Next is an amazingly colored owl card by Wendy Price, those eyes they are fantastic!
Laura Drahozal is spooking us toward the Haunted Mansion with that foggy sky and old worn look of her image!
These spiders are entranced by Skeleton Lady on Asia King’s card, a popular image that never loses its level of eerie vibes.
And the last inspiration for today is a peek before you hop on over to see the full project.
Thank you all for such a FANtastic month of participation in our 31 Days of Halloween. We sure have enjoyed your comments, liking our projects and sharing what you love about Halloween. Now here is more inspiration from the Wicked Bloggers who have posted all month long on their blogs!
What a fantastic week! Thank you for hopping along with us and we hope as well that you were inspired to create with Stampendous and DecoArt! We loved hearing from the comments that were left on each blog post over the week.
Here we are on our last, and biggest hop day with international mixed media artist Andy Skinner and his wonderful Design Team at DecoArt. We hope you’ve been amazed and delighted at the inspiration we’ve shared with you. Andy’s stamps are just so exciting and fun to use, and we know you’ve loved seeing the range of the DecoArt Fluid Media line as well.
One reason we focused on the Media range for this blog hop, is that it’s the perfect acrylic paint to use when tinting your Dreamweaver Embossing Pastes! Just one drop of these pigment-rich media paints is enough to tint a generous quantity of paste for making your favorite backgrounds. Don’t be afraid to color your pastes to match your projects. Most Dreamweaver Embossing Pastes can be tinted very easily. Here are some examples from our own Leadonna Fritts! You might just recognize some of these made into projects on her blog this week.
Now get hopping and be sure to leave a trail of comments on each of the designer blogs. Each comment gets you one entry for a great prize package (open to everyone) of all three of Andy Skinner’s newest stamps for Stampendous PLUS a Fluid Media Acrylic Starter Kit.
We’re super excited this week to play with our friends at DecoArt. Mixed Media Artist and DecoArt International Education Coordinator Andy Skinner has designed some fantastic stamps for Stampendous, and we’re going to be showing them off all week long.
Andy will join us along with his team of international mixed media artists including Julia Stratford-Wright, Mark Gould, Mel Hookham, and Jools Robertson. Plus there will be posts this week on the DecoArt blog as well. Naturally the Stampendous Design Team will be checking in as well.
You’ll want to get your commenting fingers ready…so put down your paintbrushes! Each comment on a post this week will enter you to win a fabulous prize package! (one comment per post, per person) Contest open to everyone!!
We have three packages and each has a Fluid Media Starter Kit, all three of Andy Skinner’s new Stampendous Stamp sets, and a Jumbo Acrylic Handle. Look at this great prize!
Andy himself was kind enough to visit our booth at CHA and demonstrate his new stamps for us as well as showing us how to use DecoArt’s Media Antiquing Cream. You’ll love this product (which is included in the prize!) and you’ll just be wow’d. Take a look at the video of Andy’s Demonstration –
Now click on the links below and let’s get hoppin’!!! What a week we have in store!
A glance or the look and so many other faces have made their way into a stamp here at Stampendous and our January release has added three new faces. Stop by this week on our blog to see them all!
Braids are fun to twist into hair, but our Beautiful Braid is ready to color in any fanciful combination you like, just as Amy Hurley-Purdie and two other designers were inspired to create lovely projects.
And we have two more stylists sharing their projects today, stop by and see their twist on the many faces of Stampendous!
It’s a great day in the snow with our furry friends and it is even better for us because we stay dry and warm inside! This fun sledding card does well as a sweet encouragement card for family or friend just like this card by Janelle Stollfus.
Two more friends sledding with a few tweet friends near by. It couldn’t be a more enjoyable outing unless of course that candy cane is a real treat!
Louise Healy has them all warmed up in their brown fur coats going down a sparkling snow path.
The most adventurous Amanda is a downhill dynamo completely enjoying the colder temperatures and white powdery snow!
Here’s to red scarves and glistening snow mounds, just a darling Ski Run image colored by Rhea Weigand.
Thank you for stopping in for a little bit of snow fun! Let’s go see what today’s designers made to enjoy the cold outside!
Hello and welcome to another day of our mashup with Santa and wobbly action projects. Our team is having way too much fun making a wide range of wobbly cards AND there are a few video clips to see just how they wobble. Catch up on them from Monday if you haven’t already and check out today’s list of designers who are ready to dazzle you with Santa’s, wobbly cards or both!
Since it IS about Santa this week too, we have some projects from our catalog with a few bag issues! They are brimming full of presents that are just begging to be seen. First up is this amazing book box by Debbie Cole who captures the vintage and country vibe of our Quilted Santa stamp. Isn’t this just amazing!
And then there is a classic version of Santa, as Classic Santa in wood or cling rubber mount.
Asia King created this gorgeous Classic Santa card and those young at heart believe the sentiment says is all. Get all the details on how Asia created this card over on our website HERE.
We can’t get enough of the big fat man with the long white beard around this time of year, so let’s hop on over to these designer’s projects and see if we can find him!
This week while we are collaborating with Glue Dots we also have a little theme running along side and it’s all about our bone chattering images for Halloween. You’ll see more from our team this week, but here’s a round up of our newest skeleton imagery.
An elegantly clad skeleton lady strolls among the tombstones with Halloween flair. So many ways this could be spooky, check out a few projects from our design team on this one!
A hunting owl swoops down on a fleet of fleeing rats in this haunted graveyard stamp scene and we have a few designer samples to show its spooky side in full color.
Celebrate the Day of the Dead with our Día de los Muertos PenPattern Skull. The background and greeting make a full card in one stamping.
And so many more projects from our design team this week with our All About the Dead theme. They may look familiar with other events going on this week from our blog, but are so worth seeing again!
We hope you’ve had some fun with our Halloween days so far using some of our spooky products! Today is another fabulous project day!
This fantastic event will involve tons of Halloween inspiration for those of you who love the spooky side. Tons of crafty bloggers will be posting a Halloween project each day in October 2015. And our Design Team has accepted the Challenge.
If you have been along the hop already today you came from Lisa Häll’s blog.
Visit us each day to see the new list of who is posting, plus a tease of their project. Every project for this blog hop will be brand new!
And of course there are PRIZES!!! There will be scavenger hunts and heaps of prizes hidden all over the interwebs. These will all be given out by the folks at www.smearedink.com who are in charge of the event. And there will be a Grand Prize Drawing as well. Be sure to visit them to find out all about the prizes!
