Getting Crafty With Stampendous and Linnie Bloom


At Linnie Blooms you’re going to find oodles of fun projects to really take your mixed media in a new direction. Stampendous met this new company at CHA in January, and we immediately had heaps of ideas for using her clever products. What a new dimension to journals, canvases, books, scrapbook pages!  We know you’re going to love seeing the inspiration from this week’s hop!
Plus there are prizes!! Three lucky winners will each win a set of Linnie Blooms Fabric Mini File Folders just like they provided for our team. Plus, you’ll receive a Dreamweaver Stencil background, and our Vintage Press Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. You’ll be creating Mixed Media fabric accents in no time!  These winners have to have a U.S. mailing address (official rules here). 
Aussie Fans – good news! The Stencil Specialists are sponsoring one Australian prize for this collaboration! You could win a Stampendous stamp, an LL sized Dreamweaver Stencil of your choice, a silicone buttons mould, and a Stampendous Embossing Powder (your color choice)… Wow!! Be sure to let us know you’re from Australia in your comments!!

I got a three pack of fabric file folders from Linnie Blooms and thought they could be turned into little mini memory books for the different seasons.  Today I'm sharing one I made for Fall.
1.  Sprayed the file folder with Sunset Orange Adirondack spray and let dry.
2.  A while ago I  made a bunch of background papers using my Creative Palette Rectangles (this one is my favorite!!) and acrylic paints.

I grabbed one of the papers that had pink, orange and white paints, stamped the roses from the Build A Bouquet set and used the matching Build A Bouquet Die set to cut them out. Then did the same thing with the daisies and leaves.

3.  The stamped pieces were layered onto a strip of jute ribbon and glued to the file folder with Fabri-Tac glue.
4.  Frantage Mica Fragments were added to the jute ribbon by applying random spots of Zip Dry glue and sprinkling on Mica.

5.  The black letters are die cut using Dreamweaver Stencils Dual Alphabet Dies and glued onto the folder using Fabri-Tac glue.
6.  Gold Dot Sparklers were added to the F for a touch of bling.
