Imagine Crafts and Stampendous Blog Hop

Stampendous and Imagine Crafts Header

Welcome to a week of fantastic collaboration between IMAGINE Crafts and Stampendous! We have to admit that our two companies were made for each other and we're proud to have shared a long relationship of working together. After all, what are stamps without ink? The projects created by our artists this week feature IMAGINE Crafts Radiant Neon™ inks paired perfectly with coordinating colors of Fran•táge Color Fragments from Stampendous, along with some of their newest stamp designs and Stack Art kits.

Prizes galore for participating in the Blog Hop this week!

We'll be giving three prize packages of 3 Radiant Neon inks and 3 Fran•táge Color Fragments (we'll choose your colors). There will be a bright crafting future ahead of you! Each day we’ll post that day's participating artists. Visit their blog and leave a comment by midnight PST May 25th. We ‘ll randomly select three different blogs from the five days, then randomly draw one commenter from each blog. You must have a U.S. mailing address to win, but we’d love for everyone to hop and comment! You can check out the Official Rules for all our contests if you have questions.

Here is what I created for you today along with a short tutorial. I used the stamps and fragments by Stampendous and my favorite NEON inks by Imagine Crafts/ Tsukineko :)





 First, stamp the background using various colors of inks.


Then, adhere some double sided tap on a scrap piece of paper and on top of it, stick some fragments to it. Die cut the balloons.


Die cut a rectangle from the stamped cardstock and assemble everything as above.


***Blog Hop Hint – if you click on a link that takes you to a page saying something like, “Sorry this page cannot be found,” just click on the header at the top of the blog (usually a picture, or the blog’s name), and it will take you to that blog’s most recent post. That post *should* be our hop. If not, you can probably scroll down a short way to find the hop post.
