We don’t know who decided holiday sweaters were “ugly”, but we have to disagree, we’re seeing some of the cutest projects ever this week! Check out all the samples, and be sure to leave nice comments. Then come back at the end of next week to vote for your favorite! We’ll draw three lucky winners with U.S. Mailing Addresses from those voting to win the Cool Penguin set. And the designer with the most votes will get $50 to spend on Stampendous Product!!

We have artists sharing all this week and next. So keep track of your favorites! Maybe as a Christmas present to yourself and a designer you could follow a new blog!

Today we have another sweet offering from Judi Kauffman, class designer and sample artist for The Queen’s Ink. This sample offers a trio of stylish sweaters! Maybe Judi should consider fashion design! She has used a ton of other Stampendous stamps to make these Fabulous! Judi doesn’t blog, but if you follow The Queen’s Ink blog you’ll see plenty of her work!

First we have this adorable offering from Judi Kauffman who designs classes and blog projects for The Queen’s Ink. She made three samples, and here’s the first. This one shows a whole crew of penguins in their finest sweater apparel.

Merry and Bright Friday!

Merry and Bright Banner

It’s been Merry and Bright all this week with some great ideas for holiday projects!  In case you missed them here are MONDAY and WEDNESDAY‘s posts. Next week we’ll be sharing with all of our Laurel Burch images for Christmas! And there will be Prizes, be sure to tune in Monday! Today, we’re sharing awesome cards to add a little, special, sparkle to Christmas.

In addition to our great holiday stamps this year, we released some awesome new essentials. Have a look at some of these wonderful products!

First up is our brand new Twinkle Glitter! This vintage-looking glitter adds a ton of sparkle wherever it goes. We like to add a focal piece on top of our Sticky Panels and then fill the rest of the exposed adhesive with this blingy wonder. The random sizes and shapes of the granules just fill up the space and sparkle and twinkle when you turn the card. Stunning!

Here’s a swatch (you can click on any of these pictures to visit the products or projects on our website) so you can see the grain size and shape variations, it’s really cool.

It comes in a beautiful, big jar, so you have lots to play with!

It was a huge favorite with our Design Team this year. Here you can see a sample by Kristine Reynolds using the Twinkle Glitter behind our beautiful Pinecone Decoration stamp. You can see the extreme level of twinkle this glitter throws out!

Another great new product we released this season was our Ice Pink Embossing EnamelIce Pink joins last year’s Rose Gold and Iced Blue in the Frantage Embossing Enamels line. These pearly metallics are holiday perfect! Photographs cannot do them justice!

FREG050 Ice Pink Embossing Enamel
FREG049 Rose Gold Embossing Enamel
FREG048 Ice Blue Embossing Enamel

This terrific sample from Louise Healy uses the Ice Pink Embossing Enamel over the top of Silver Embossing Paste  and the Ornament Mix stencil to create a fantastic molten magic card! It’s magical! You can find the directions and supplies on our website here!
