All week long we are hopping with the design team from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. They’ll be sharing some of our newest holiday products while we show you how to stick in style with their amazing adhesives.
In case you missed Monday’s posts, check out the Stampendous Post and the Scrapbook Adhesives Post.
You KNOW there are prizes! We’ve got three lovely prize packages this week. Each includes a really fun selection of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products and one of our new Cling Stamp and Die sets (sssh… it’s a surprise!). How do you win??
Well, first leave us a comment below, then visit the
and leave them a comment.
THEN click on this Rafflecopter Link (it’s on their blog, too) and follow the instructions there. Easy! U.S. winners only, and our Official Rules are always HERE.
Today we want to share another amazing sample with our Winter White Cling Stamps and Cutting Dies Set. Snowflakes are always among our most popular choices, and when they have matching dies you can just cut out a flurry of them for some really great projects.
We use only Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L’s 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for popping up our elements here at Stampendous. They very generously supply them to us for all of our Store Display boards and we’re super grateful for their generosity! Here, Fran used them to pop up some new snowflakes over a gorgeous alcohol ink background by Jennifer Dove. Jennifer airbrushed a glossy white card with Copic Markers then spritzed it with Copic Blending Solution in a spray bottle. You can do this same technique with watercolors spritzed with water, or alcohol inks sprayed directly on the card. The perfect spot for your greeting may vary, so your cards will be different, just like snowflakes. Create your backgrounds a whole sheet at time and cut up for your cards. You can see this card up close by clicking on it above.
Come back tomorrow for more inspiration and more hopping fun!!
It’s almost time to leave our celebration of Halloween images! This week we’re playing with our newest Kiddos. These cuties do all the things your kids do, you can see the whole collection on our website HERE.
For Halloween our little girl is dressed up as a Pumpkin, and our little boy as a Burglar. They’re just as sweet as can be. They’re both available in wood mounted or cling rubber styles on our website or in your favorite stamping/scrapbooking store. Find a store near you with our Dealer Locator
Today, BlogStar Rhea Weigand has a terrific project for you featuring our Pumpkin Kiddo along with another of her fabulous coloring guides! So Pinnable!! Enjoy!
Be sure to check at the bottom of the post for more Design Team inspiration!
To create the Haunting Background I air-brushed a little BV17, V08, YR16 and YG17 on GLOSSY PAPER. Then spritzed it with alcohol. The alcohol causes the ink to “run away screaming” Pretty fitting being that it is halloween 🙂 After the paper is dry stamp image with Archival Ink. Now you are done.
Next just color your little kiddo. Here are the colors I used.
Now go check out the terrific projects from these Stampendous Design Team Members:
Hi there. It’s Tobi Crawford here again with a Blogstar post starring these fab products available at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and here:
To make the focal image really stand out I pulled out my Copic airbrush system and a circle die cut and added a special touch..
First, die cut the image. Keep the die on the image and grab your airbrushing tool. (If you don’t have an airbrush, or don’t want to use it, use distress inks and a foam applicator. I do that all the time and it works just as well!) Use a light color and concentrate on the outer edge of the shape.
Remove the die cut and you have a beautiful rim around the edge. It’s kind of like matting your image, but easier!
One last tip. If you have a smaller area for your sentiment than you anticipated, why not snip (carefully) the stamp apart?
Initially I was going to stamp the sentiment as shown above, but it was just a bit too wide. So now I have all of these other options with this ONE sentiment stamp!
(Stampendous Note: Tobi’s stamp was one of our Cling Mounted stamps, so she didn’t have any trouble snipping it. Jo Ann Fabric and Crafts carries this stamp in the Wood Mounted version. If you’d like the Cling Version visit our website HERE
