Stampendous Encrusted Jewel Technique Blog Hop!



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:

The Encrusted Jewel Technique is so fun and the results are beautiful. I stamped the Cling Single Chandelier with Versamark Ink and added Aged Black Embossing Enamel. I then added Gold Halo Glitter and Champagne Glass Glitter from the Treasures Glitter Kit. Finally I added the "Just a Note" sentiment from the Rose Branch Border stamp set.



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. U.S. participants only have until 8pm EST on Sunday to leave your comments.
