{Mixed Media Tutorial} Tin Can Art with Marilynn

Hi there, this is MariLynn with a fun way to repurpose an object that most people would consider trash or at best something just to be recycled. I think it is fun to take those objects to make art. 

I am going to show you how I turned this small can

Into this cute little container for holding my hair clips, (And when you have long hair, you have a lot of hair clips to keep track of)

{Spotlight Project} Shirley Showcases Layered Stamp Sets

I've been having fun designing some new layered stamp sets, which will be officially launched from November 8 to 10, but we thought we'd give you a little look at them before the launch date. We're starting off with three sets in the range, and they're a new size as well: 4x8 stamp sets.

The first thing to note about these sets is that the images do not line up perfectly. They are meant to overlap slightly - think me and my sloshing outside the lines with the guesswork being done for you! You get a lovely graphic artsy image with very little effort.

{Spotlight Project} Maria Spotlights Camouflage Die Cutting

Howdy STAMPlorations friends! I've always wondered if people with birthdays around Christmas feel cheated. Do they receive less presents cuz the holiday is right around the corner?!? Or maybe they get more cuz no one wants them to feel cheated?!? Whatever the case, I paired up Christmas and birthday supplies to create my card for a December birthday. I figure if you're going to have a birthday around the holidays, you might as well embrace it!

October CAS Card Challenge Reminder

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! Here's to remind you that this month's CAS Card Challenge is in full swing and there are still a couple of weeks left to join in with the fun. It's anything CAS goes with orange as the optional color twist.

If you were inspired by our sketch and/or theme this month, make sure you link up your creation to our October Monthly Theme and/or Sketch Challenge as well. If your card has diecuts, has a STAMPlorations product, and was inspired by the photo here, link it up in the October CUTplorations Challenge gallery. If your CAS card happens to be fall-themed and features a tag, make sure you link it up to our newest challenge, TAGplorations, as well! And lastly, if your card has STAMPlorations products (stamps, stencils, and/or dies) as the main attraction, link it up to our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge. Yep, more chances for prizes we have up for grabs :o)

The STAMPlorations girls are back with cards to inspire you. Check them out and we hope you'll come play!
