It's Blog Hop time! Two great companies Stampendous and Sizzix will be featured in this Hop! I'm sure you've heard of Artist Trading Cards or ATC's, but have you heard of Artist trading Blocks? They are so much fun! Sizzix makes these incredible little blocks that you can use to unleash your creativity on! Creativity has many dimensions. Artist trading blocks provide a multi-dimensional canvas for your artistic expression. It’s never been easier to create, collect and share your style with Stampendous stamps and Essentials! I'll be creating 2 blocks for this hop, and today's block features lot's of super cool stamps from Stampendous!
I was thinking about all the art ideas that rattle through my head and thought....HEY! Why not create a box with a woman's face, and all her art ideas she has kept in that genius brain escaping from her head...and viola' ....my box was created!
We know this form of crafting will spark your interest and give your mojo a serious boost! That’s why we have prizes!!! We’ll choose three winners at random from the comments on all blogs in the hop. Then from those three we’ll randomly pick a GRAND PRIZE winner! Two of the winners will receive Stampendous PenPattern Petal and PenPattern Flutter cling stamps, just like you’ll see on Kristine Reynolds amazing ATB sample. They’ll also receive enough pre-cut, premium matboard from Sizzix to make two boxes of your own, plus some extra pieces for fiddly bits! The Grand Prize winner will receive the stamps as above, a whole package of matboard, AND the Sizzix die to cut your own ATB boxes! Uh, WOW! If that weren’t enough, eligibility for these amazing prize packages has expanded to include our international fans too!
Comment deadline will be Sunday, March 8th. A whole extra week for you to vote! We will continue posting links as we receive them from the Inspiration Team, so be sure to keep checking back. You get one entry for every comment, so you don’t want to miss the chance to leave a thoughtful comment on each project. For those who tend to get lost, we’ll post a “cumulative” link list of links so far on Saturday, February 28th and Saturday, March 7th. Then you can check your progress.
