Anybody Want To Play? Stampendous Surf-By Sweepstakes

Stampendous has just released a new, fabulous product: color fragments. Available in five colors, fragments can be used with adhesive or mixed with embossing powder, paint or even resin. Either way, the results are magical and will add fantastic dimension and texture to your card, layout or mixed media project.

It's Super Bowl Sunday so I thought I'd create a football-themed card. Yes, I kind of know who's playing and realize my card colors don't relate but I wanted to use the yummy Sage Color Fragments and got carried away.

As it turned out, this card can be used for a masculine birthday or perhaps I could stamp "Yay" on the banner and turn it into a congratulations card.

To create the card, I used two different Stampendous stamps: Cling Fluffles Football CRV233 (main image) and For Him SSC135 (footballs). Stamped on Copic X-Press It Blending Card, I colored the images (with Copics, of course), fussy-cut them and adhered them to the main panel. I also paper pieced the banner and stripe on the helmet by stamping the image onto a piece of Basic Grey Recess paper and fussy-cutting.

Here's a closeup of the Stampendous Color Fragments:

Doesn't it remind you of turf? Adhering the fragments to my card was easy. I put a thin layer of Glossy Accents on the panel and sprinkled the fragments on top of it. Before sprinkling the fragments, I crushed them a little by rolling them around with my fingers.

There's so much you can do with Stampendous Color Fragments. All month long, there will be great inspiration over on the Stampendous blog including a Color Fragment Blog Hop next Saturday, February 11th. It begins at 8:00 am EST and will feature incredible projects from the Stampendous Design Team. Be prepared to be inspired. Of course prizes will be given. Please visit the Stampendous blog for all of the details.

Are any of you going to attend Kathryn Krieger’s super fun Scrappy Bowl Sunday UStream event? It takes place during tonight's broadcast of the Super Bowl. You can find more info about this event on her blog. I'm going to try to sneak on her show and give away a bottle of Stampendous Sage Color Fragments. Do you want a chance to win? Just leave a comment (including your email address), here on my blog, telling me which new fragment color is your favorite. You must comment during the televising of the game (EST please)in order to be eligible to win. As soon as the game is over, I will pick a winner.

Thanks Stampendous for donating this great prize. Please note: Due to customs restrictions, US/APO/FPO Winners only.

Thanks for visiting!
