Welcome to the Stampendous "Fran•tage Encrusted Jewel Hop"! All of us on the Stampendous Design Teams are sooo excited about this new technique...an accidental creative process discovered by our own Fran Seiford, Chief Artistic Officer at Stampendous! There is a quote that says, "There are no mistakes, just opportunities for embellishment!" How true is that? Today our super-creative-with-mistakes designers are excited to show you how you can deliberately create with gorgeous sloppiness. For more info on the process of Encrusting with the Fran•tage Essentials, check out the YouTube video HERE. Here's the list of our Encrusted Hoppers for today:

As you hop from blog to blog, oohing and aahing over the Encrusted Jewel fabulousness, be sure to leave some love (and your contact email) for the designers, as well as on the Stampendous blog. Your comments are your insurance that you have an opportunity to win one of four blog candy goody boxes of Stampendous Fran•tage Essentials for you to create your own Encrusted Jewel goodness:
WOW!! Fabulous prizes!!! You all will have so much fun with all this goodness!!!
Today I made a stationary box with some Fran~tage greeting cards and matching envelopes.
My greeting card box is right in line with the Stampendous Team’s Chipboard November challenge. This entire box is made of chipboard…
I cut the patterned paper for each side of the box and Fran~tage’d each piece individually.
I had such a great time layering the great Stampendous Chunky White Enamel, Aged Gold Embossing Enamel, Bronze Mica Flakes and Champagne Glass Glitter. Before I started layering I stamped the Summer CHA release of Rose Branch Border (SSC1130) and Amore Frame (SSC1128) with Versamark and heat embossed Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.
One the inside of the box, I made a bit of a divider for cards on one side, pens and stamps on the other.
I adorned the cards and envelopes with the Rose Branch Border set (SSC1130), stamped with Versamark and heat embossed Vintage Mahogany Embossing Powder. The layered Aged Gold Embossing Enamel, Bronze Mica Flakes, Gold Halo Glitter and Champagne Glass Glitter and heated all of it from underneath the paper.
What a fun project!! Again, your insurance for winning one of four prizes is leaving comments on the Stampendous Team’s blogs and Stampendous Impressions.
ENJOY the hop and your weekend!!!
