Woodware Blog Hop Week

We have a different sort of collaboration for you!
At Stampendous we’re very excited to be able to offer our products in many countries around the world. We’re able to do this thanks to our terrific distributors in those countries who help retail stores to stock our products. In the UK we have a very long and valued partnership with Woodware Craft Collection. These wonderful folks stock almost all of our products, and they even stock several classic items that have retired from our store here in the US. They also stock almost all of our new Dreamweaver Stencils line, so we thought it would be another great event to celebrate the addition of Dreamweaver to the Stampendous family.
This week we’re going to celebrate with the awesome Woodware Design Team and the Dreamweaver Stencils Dream Team all of the the great Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils products that Woodware makes available to the UK market. This is good news for our crafty friends in the UK because we’ll be offering prizes and our UK friends are eligible to win!! We’ll be offering three prizes in the UK and three in the US. Each prize package will consist of Nathalie Kalbach’s terrific Grunge Mixed Media Cling Rubber Stamp Sets and the beautiful Zen Butterfly Dreamweaver Stencil! Both products are ideal for adding texture and backgrounds to your projects!
Deadline to comment is Sunday, March 29th, Pacific Time. Winners will be picked using random.org and announced Tuesday, March 31st, in the afternoon.
And that’s our theme!! Making Texture. We hope you’ll enjoy the wonderful inspiration that three talented teams will bring you this week! Be sure to visit all the blog links listed and leave your comments! Each comment will count as an entry towards one of the terrific prize packages.

Here's my take on making texture with Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous!



I used one of our House-Mouse Designs called Birthday Donut (UK) and colored with Copic Markers (see colors below).

The beautiful background is made with Mosaic Swirls Stencils (UK) and sprayed watered down acrylic paints in Buttercream, Poppy and Teal Green before spreading a layer of Translucent Embossing Paste (UK) with the Paste Spreader (UK).

The sentiment is from Happy Messages Stamp Set (UK).

Nothing is more important at a party then confetti, so some Teal Color Fragments are adhered to the edges of the image and sentiment. (Stack Art Fusion Kit (UK.)

Thanks for stopping by and we'll see you again soon!

Here are the designer’s sharing their projects today —
