{Mixed Media Tutorial} Stenciled Paint and Paste Tags by Sanna


Hello everyone, it´s my turn today to share a little mixed media tutorial with you. I decided to create a set of two tags using toned modeling paste with stencils. Here is how my finished tags look like:

{DAY ONE} January Stamps & Dies Release Week - Noteworthy 2 by Shery


Hey there, STAMPlorations friends! Welcome to DAY 1 of the January Stamps & Dies Release Week! We've released FOUR new stamp sets by Shery (me) Shirley, Deepi, and Becca, as well as THREE alphabet and numbers plate dies in our CUTplorations line.

For the next four days, the STAMPlorations girls in the Inspiration team will be featuring each stamp set and on the fifth day, they'll be featuring the dies in their projects.

And what's a blog hop without prizes? We've several! And you have lots of chances to win when you leave comments every day :o)
  • 2 winners of $25 gift certificates randomly drawn from comments left here on the STAMP blog and designer blogs
  • 1 winner of her choice of 1 stamp set from the new release randomly drawn from our Facebook page
  • 1 winner of her choice of CUTplorations die from the new release randomly drawn from our Instagram account
  • and there will be few surprise prizes along the way :o)

Commenting closes on Tuesday, February 7, with the winners announced in our January Challenges & Hops winners post on February 10. (Make sure to follow our blog or subscribe by email so you don't miss a post!)

To kick off the hop, we're putting the spotlight on NOTEWORTHY 2. This set is long overdue, as I've received several requests over the last year and a half for a follow-up to Noteworthy (which we released back in April 2015). I have STAMPgirl Maria F. to thank because she suggested about half of the sentiments in the set. The sentiments are uplifting and they're perfect to use not just in cards but in journal cards, art journals, ATCs, scrapbook pages, mini books, and more. And keep your eyes peeled because these same sentiments -- and a few more -- are going to also be available in a large size so they can be used in projects that are bigger than an A2 card :o)

{PREVIEW} January Stamps and Dies

Good morning, STAMPlorations peeps! Popping by here to give you lovely folks a preview of the January stamps and dies that we are releasing this month.

We have four pretty cool 4x6 stamps sets and three awesome CUTplorations die plates that the girls in the Inspiration team will be showcasing next week all week in our January Release blog hop!

Let's start with the CUTplorations alphabet and numbers die plates. Plates? Yep, with these die plates, you can cut entire sets of numbers and alphabets (in lowercase and uppercase) in one pass! These are great for creating your own custom sentiments. (Wait 'til you see what the Inspiration team has created with these babies!)






And for the stamps...








You like? Hope so! Make sure you check back here on the blog on Monday because the fun starts at 7 a.m. Pacific. There will be prizes (but of course!) for those who will hop all week, as well as leave comments on our Facebook page and Instagram account.

Oh yeah, before I forget...these stamps and dies are available now on the store and they're 5% off until February 10. (Discount is automatically applied -- no coupon needed.) You'll find them in the New Release category. And if you're a Premium Stamp Club subscriber, you can get a whopping 25% off on top of that when you use your personal discount code :o)


Be well!

{Spotlight Project} Maria Designs A Card For a Color Challenge


In my last spotlight I walked you through my design process when following a sketch.  Thought I'd do something similar in this post and walk you through how I created a card based on a color challenge  blue and yellow.  I'm not usually a real "blue" gal, but I think after Christmas this fresh combo came as a welcome change!

Meet today's card.



{Inspiration Project Post #116}

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! It's Tuesday, and the girls from the Inspiration team have been busy preparing projects for you.

Since the beginning of this year, things have been mixed up a little. Each week, we'll be showcasing stamps from one designer and all of her stamps will be on sale for one week -- no coupon needed; the discount is automatically applied. And if you happen to have a coupon code, such as a personal discount code for being a stamp club subscriber, you can use the code to get an even better deal.

This week, the Inspiration team is showcasing stamps designed by the one and only Shery for her line, Shery Russ Designs. All of her stamps, except for one, are 10% off until January 23. The Oh, So Grateful Stamps And Coordinating Die set is 20% off.

We'll still randomly draw a winner from all the comments left on our Inspiration Posts, so have a look and leave a comment for your entry to win a $10 gift certificate to the store.
