Welcome to the Stampendous/Envirotex Hop!

We're so happy you found us today! We've been enjoying the fun crafting potential of combining our fantastic stamp images with EnviroTex Jewelry Resin from Environmental Technologies. Carmi Cimiata of the Resin Crafts Blog has helped us learn so much about how this product works, what it can and cannot do. We're so appreciative of her and the folks at ETI who sent us all some resin to play with. {big round of applause!} We've prepared some fantastic projects to inspire you today.


 As you have so many fabulously talented ladies to visit today, I'm keeping my post short and to the point. After working for several days with the resin, I had the notion that it would be fun to use in a clear ornament (available at Michael's). I mixed a small amount of the resin, stirred in some Iceberg Color Solutions from Dreamweavers, some Shaved Ice, Holographic Glitter, and Color Fragments from the Stampendous Fran•táge collection, and poured it inside the ornament. I swirled it around to cover the entire inside portion before turning upside down and letting the excess drip out (onto a craft mat, so I could use this for something else). Once dry and cured, I slipped inside a disc of acetate, with a piece of tissue adhered, that I had stamped the soon-to-be-released Perfectly Clear Snow Globe Kiddo, with StazOn ink and colored with Copic markers. To insert, just roll up, insert through top, and let open. If you have measured the disc correctly, it will stay just where you want it. If not, you can adjust with needle nose pliers and a drop of glue. The tag is stamped with the sentiment from the same clear set. Oh, and yes, I stamped the ribbon as well to match!

We hope you'll run over to your local Michaels or other craft store and pick up some resin and some Stampendous stamps and get playing. If you make something fun, please take a picture and put it on our Facebook page! We'd love to see what you're doing! As you visit each blog, you'll be entered in our drawing for a great prize package when you leave a comment! If you don't tell us you were there by commenting, we can't include you in the drawing! We'll pick a winner from today's comments separate from the comments made throughout the week. Get hoppin!
