Stampendous "Sea what's new" Blog Hop



This Saturday the Stampendous team has something extra special planned for you...we have combined our regular monthly challenge with a blog hop showcasing some of the great new products released at CHA last month!  Pull up a chair, grab a warm beverage and yummy snack, and get ready to be wowed!  Be sure to scroll through my whole post; links to other hoppers, prize pack photos, and details on how to win are included below!

I am truly in love with the card I made today...don't you just love when that happens?

I combined these awesome images from the newly released
Wonderland Perfectly Clear Stamps by Stampendous
with some Powder Blue Color Fragments.  


Here's a closer look at the fragments.  This exciting new product can be used with any adhesive as an embellishment or mixed with embossing powder, paint, clay, resin…the possibilities are limited only by your imagination! They are available in five yummy colors for Spring and you can see them all HERE.


To attach the fragments to my card I first sprinkled Clear Deep Impressions embossing powder on the edges of the card and then sprinkles the fragments randomly over the powder.  Heating from underneath melts the embossing powder with out blowing the fragments all over!



If you have not checked out this month's great texture challenge, you can read all the details on the Stampendous blog.  Now, check out the whole list of fabulousness for today:


As you hop from blog to blog, being wowed by all the amazing new goodies we are showing off, be sure to leave some love (and your contact email) for the designers, as well as on the Stampendous blog. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win one of these five fantastic prize packs.  Each one includes a brand new stamp set and bottle of color fragments from Stampendous:











Winners will be randomly selected from all comments left on blogs, so the more you comment the better your chances are to win one!!  You have until Sunday, February 12 th at 8:00 PM EST to leave a comment on each blog; winners will be announced on Monday, February 13th. Due to shipping restrictions, all winners must have a US/APO/FPO mailing address. 

And don't forget....We want YOU to play along with us in our monthly challenge!  Just add your direct link to your card (make sure you've loaded it up with tons of TEXTURE) to the linky tool on the Stampendous blog no later than March 1, 2012 at 11:00 PM EST.  You do not have to use Stampendous products to play along, but we sure love it when you do!  And as an extra incentive for playing, one lucky person (drawn at random from all the entries) will receive the gorgeous Corset Ladies Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

Thanks for Hopping by!
