e 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.

Day one of a 5 day collaboration and the combination of 3 different areas of papercrafting, all come together.  I really enjoyed making this card and I know that this could be used for numerous occasions. 

Here is my project for day 1:




Here is what I used:-

Green card (for base)
Black card
White Card
Patterned paper
Distress ink pad
Stampendous Gold Halo glitter mix
Stampendous stamp CRR222 Cling Bird Gears
Dreamweaver Stencil LJ911 Gears
Blending tool
Waterbrush
Quickie glue pen
Adhesive gems
Big Shot Die cutting machine

and this is what I did:-

1 Take stencil and run through the die cutting machine, and once done colour the piece using the Strie technique.  Trim the piece down and then cut into 4 equal panels.

2 Matt these on to black card.


3 Stamp the image on to another piece of white card and use waterbrush to watercolour certain areas.  I chose to colour the bird, around the wheel and the frame.

4 I then used a blending tool and applied the same coloured ink pad to the background...... this was to make the white card blend and not seem so stark.

5 Use the Quickie glue pen to highlight some of the stamped image.......I highlighted the feathers of the bird, the dots around the circle, certain areas of the wing, the circles of the wheels and the long pieces in the bottom right of the stamp.

6 I then matted this panel on to black card and put the card together, the final touches were to add the adhesive gems to the corners of the panels and for the birds eye I used a small star shaped adhesive gem.  I coloured all the gems with a black alcohol marker (as I didn't have any black gems to hand). 

Thats my card, and here are the designer’s sharing the projects today:-
