Were you able to catch the livestream event Stampendous did with Charity Wings this afternoon? Hopefully it will be up on Charity Wings YouTube channel soon so you can see it if you missed it.
They filmed and interviewed our very own Fran Seiford from the SPC Mixed Media Show today, and Fran had an opportunity to share her Melt Media Technique with Elena.
This terrific technique uses embossing powders as an art medium, not just for stamping, any more. With an electric griddle as a steady heat source, Fran uses the vast array of Stampendous embossing powders to make incredible pieces of art. She uses the powders to paint some incredible scenes on chipboard “tiles” then adheres them to mixed media canvases.
These incredible creations and lots more can be seen in the Tips and Techniques section of our website. You’ll also find complete directions there for this amazing look. We’ll also be linking the videos soon. It’s really exciting! We can’t wait to see if you try something similar! Do share what you make with us on our Facebook Page or Flickr Group!
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today we’re taking a quick look at our Cling Create A Poinsettia stamp to design terrific layouts for the holidays! This week is turning out some fantastic projects with this pointed leaf and we wouldn’t want to forget our scrapbooking peeps who love to use their Stampendous stamps on layouts.
This layouts is very festive and quick with large amounts of journal space.
Welcome back to another day of pretty poinsettias! We had a chance to see in video we posted yesterday all the possibilities using Create A Poinsettia Cling Stamp and Die Cut Set, but did you spot Fran’s great idea for keeping track of the parts of the free template included in the stamp package? How about her tip for lining up the dies onto the image for cutting quickly and efficiently every time? If not, stop by Monday’s blog post and see the video.
Today is a sneak peek at the products themselves before a little project treat or two as well. This gorgeous poinsettia flower arrangement is accompanied by a vintage style greeting for a great card or scrapbook page and yes holiday ornaments, too!
The coordinating die cut set will help layer the poinsettia flower into four sections, but really you can stamp and layer until it looks just they way you want. Just stamp out a few extra flowers from to create a beautiful three-dimensional effect with it.
One of the possibilities Fran shared in the video is to use thin chipboard cut with the dies to add stability to each flower layer and then add a jump rings to attach beads and a hook or loop for a pretty ornament. Here’s her finished sample she started in the video and it turned out beautiful!

Check out today’s feline crafty designer projects!
The burst of Acoustic Sounds is evident on our collage style stamp by the same name. It’s swooping and swirling seems to elevate the guitar above the musical background and with these layers already built in to the design you can create a full A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches) in minutes.
This fantastic card example by Fran Seiford is perfect for a quick card. It has a great rythmic feel to it with that colorful background created using the Creative Palette Rectangles plate.
