This is a repost. We are participating in Seth Apter’s Treasure Hunt today. He’s linking to tons of the buried treasure on the blogosphere, so grab a cool beverage and a kitten and prepare to be amazed. You can see links to the other participating artists on Seth’s blog at thealteredpage !!!

We sent some of the world’s best mixed media bloggers an assortment of our fun Stack Art products. We asked for their out of the box ideas and examples, and whew, you will be blown away as we share them this week!

You know you can make these simple, beautiful tag projects easily and quickly. But when you take the ingredients for a simple tag to the next level, WOW!

Our Stack Art Kits have three components:

  • The Stack Art Kraftboard Kit which includes all the kraftboard pieces you’ll need to make at least 4 amazing creations; die cut, double-sided adhesive for all the kraftboard pieces; and sentiments you can use to make each piece a special gift or card embellishment.
  • The Stack Art Stamp Sets which include an assortment of terrific background stamps and other images plus an acrylic handle.
  • The Stack Art Elements Kits which each include five jars of embellishing goodness to stick to your adhesive covered kraftboard pieces.

We’ve shown you in a series of videos how terrific these kits are for making ATC’s, mementos, place cards, photo frames, etc. You can check out the stack art videos on our YouTube Channel.

Going beyond what we’ve done before, we’ve got nine guest artists and our own design team showing us great ideas for Stack Art this week.

We’d love you to visit all their blogs, and leave your nicest, most insightful comments. We’ll be giving away three Stack Art prize packages this week based on your blog comments. Each Package will contain one Stack Art Kraftboard Kit, one Stack Art Stamp Set, and one Stack Art Elements Kit!

Stack Art Challenge Week – Day 3

 

Jan_2014_SA_Elements

Offer a handful of mixed media bloggers a chance to play with glitter, color fragments, mica, adhesive, and kraftboard, then stand back and watch the explosion of creativity. We sent a group of bloggers the terrific Stack Art Element Kits you see here and challenged them to create something fun with our Stack Art Kraftboard, Stamps and Elements.

From Clean and Simple to Wild and Crazy we’ve been blown away by the creations this team imagined. Turns out that even though Stack Art is perfect for the beginning crafter to make gift tags, mementos, photo frames, placecards, and so much more; the possibilities really are endless.

Recently, Fran was invited to visit the folks at Scrapbook Expo and make an  additional video expanding the fun of Stampendous Stack Art. Check it out!

There are three components to our Stack Art Program, our prize package this week will include one of each:

  • The Stack Art Kraftboard Kit (all the kraftboard pieces for 4+ amazing creations; adhesive for all the kraftboard pieces; and sentiments to make each piece special)
  • The Stack Art Stamp Sets (an assortment of terrific background stamps and other images plus an acrylic handle)
  • The Stack Art Elements Kits (five jars of glitter, color fragments, flocking, or mica to adhere to your die cut adhesive)

New Products, New Fun!

Jan_2014_backgrounds

Backgrounds! They’re always a challenge, and stampers and scrapbookers can never get enough. We buy loads of background paper to get different patterns and looks, but here at Stampendous we LOVE to make our own. Using stamps and, now, our new Creative Palette, you can have a lifetime of varied backgrounds without even blinking an eye!

We are so lucky that Mixed Media Artist Nathalie Kalbach has decided to work with us to create some very thrilling background images. Her cling stamp designs plus the unique templates that come with them give you literally hundreds of options for backgrounds.

Jan_2014_nathalies

Additionally, all of our new Stack Art Sets have coordinating stamp sets that create amazing backgrounds. Complete with their own clear handle, these sets of 5 or 6 stamps are absolutely delightful and all backgrounds repeat easily for endless variations!
