Etching Goodness with Stampendous

There's going to be a
Stampendous and Armour Etch Cream Collaboration all week. 
Details about this collaboration (including a huge prize package) can be found on this Stampendous blog post.

Today is the day for some new and exciting projects! I've got a very quick, simple and extraordinary project to show you for a super fun collaboration we are having with the Armour Products. This is something that I've never done before! It's just too easy not to try!

Wow, was this ever easy! Laura warned us it was easy and addicting so you better watch out. Lots of fun and exciting projects are going to happen the rest of this week! Grab a bottle of the Armour Etch Cream and creative something!

The quick of this project is going through the steps below and then adding a sentiment onto the cardstock backing in the frame. Close up the frame with a cardboard shim and it's done! I suppose I could have stamped directly onto the glass with the sentiment, but I was afraid the shadow would make it hard to read.

Remember to start with a clean piece of glass, a great bold stamp design and wear protective gloves!

If you haven't been hopping along today from Stampendous blog go ahead and start there. And go over and see the most adorable project from Asia King (it's SO worth taking another look if you've already been there).

This week's prize is for US residents only. Please leave in your comment the state in which you live. If it is hard to find where you live by either your comment or clicking on your name and looking on your About Me page, then we will move on to the next random picked winner. Thanks.

  7. What a great idea! I have never thought of etching a piece of glass from a frame and framing it! What an easy yet beautiful way to display etchings! Thanks for the inspiration! This is why I hop with Stampendous! all the time!

  8. This is absolutely gorgeous!! My brand new niece-in-law Would absolutely love this!!

  9. Yay! And thanks for the super pinnable tutorial!! This came out great, Janelle, and what a super easy project! Now, of course, I want to stamp in gold on black paper and put it behind etched glass..oooh...elegant! Thanks for the inspiration and for playing on our team!

  10. How lovely! Etched glass in a frame. I like that you didn't stamp the sentiment on the glass. I think it adds dimension and almost like a shadow box effect...I'm glad u are all reminding me to wear gloves because I would easily forget! Thanks!

  11. How funny, I made an almost identical glass insert, except I have 3 butterflies :). I just couldn't figure out how to present it so the glass really stands out. You've just shown the perfect example that less can be more! Such an elegant project Janelle, now I just need to finish mine! Thanks for the inspiration x

  12. Very pretty framed piece!
