Stand to attention for Stampendous Essentials


Hey there crafting fans! Are you enjoying the Stampendous Release week so far? My project had two transformations and I can't wait to tell you about it. BUT FIRST, there are some details that you're going to like a lot ...

Giveaways!

in the catalog.
There are daily winners! Today's winner will get the prize pack shown above! Just comment on all the designers blogs for that day and and one of the bloggers will randomly choose a winner to announce the  next day. So keep hopping with us throughout the week for as many chances to win!

Some designers just want to share in the excitement of giveaways and you might happen on a blog each day that has blog candy. The winner will be notified by that blogger.

On Saturday we will have an all designer blog hop! Commenters on that day will have a chance to win one of three prizes!

Now here's my sample to share today. I mentioned that the card went through two transformations. The first is the most exciting for me. I LOVE to see images come to life through coloring.  So with this card I stamped Cling Glory to God and Cling Soldier Kiddo in Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I added card stock layers and some ribbon embellishments to complete the card. It looks pretty good doesn't it? I love the white space, but...


Now I want to show you the power play of Stampendous Essentials which is this cards second transformation.


With a small amount of patience and a piping hot heat gun, I heat embossed Aged Teal Embossing Enamel around the edges from the back side of the card (that's three layers of cardstock and no singe marks). I glued some Ochre Color Fragments to the center of the lace ribbon. See how fantastic the Stampendous Fran•táge technique using their Essentials can create WOW in minutes!

So, SURPRISE! I'm giving away some blog candy! Yea!!!!!


I've managed to collect multiples of Changito Coffee and Dream Text Cling Rubber Stamps and I'm willing share the Stampendous goodness! I've also included a trio of handmade flowers by me, mini clothespins and extra twine to finish off your project with a bow! To be eligible just comment on my blog the three days I'm posting for our Release week. I'll pick a winner with Random.org and contact by email Monday July 30, 2012!

Your next hop is Lea's blog. Have a great time!
