Stampendous & EnviroTex Blog Hop

We're playing along all week with Carmi Cimiata over at the Resin Crafts Blog playing with EnviroTex Craft Resin. I've never worked with resin before and was a bit nervous but once I had a peek at what Carmi had done with resin I couldn't wait to give it a go! Her projects are so fun we just had to get some stamps in her hands, and the folks at Environmental Technologies were kind enough to share with us their terrific products! Add in the wonderful micas, glitters, etc in the Fran•táge Essentials Collection, plus our images, just perfect for jewelry and home decor, even the most timid crafter will fall in love with these projects. 

supplies used: Stampendous Elegant Borders, EnviroTex Craft Resin, Tsukineko Memento ink, Copics, DIY Bangles, tissue paper

For my first resin project, I stamped one of the borders in Elegant Borders on tissue paper in Tsukineko Memento Ink. I added a rainbow of color with copics. Next I mixed up some resin and poured it into one of the wells in a watercolor palette. When I had the resin almost to the surface, I laid the tissue paper down and covered it the rest of the way with resin. 

To create a setting for the resin, I hammered a bottlecap flat and inked it up with StazOn. 

Normally you would breathe hot air on the resin at the 20 min mark to get the bubbles out. I forgot, but I'm calling it a happy mistake. I kinda like the look of the bubbles. 

For this next project, I stamped on tissue paper again. (One thing to note, when adding paper or tissue paper to your resin pieces, you want to give it a coat of mod podge first. ) I followed the same steps as the previous project using a different shaped watercolor palette as a mold. When it was cured, I punched a hole in it and added it to a hemp necklace. If you look closely you may see a glimpse of a soon to be released Stampendous Jumbo in the background.

Nice. I have always been a sucker for tiny landscapes. Takes me back to the 20's when these were how art was spreading.

Lillian Child said...

Wendy, your creativity never ceases to amaze me. That necklace project is SO lovely. And with your clear instructions I feel I could actually create something using resin! Thanks so much for sharing with us!

Melinda Gleissner said...

Wendy, words cannot describe how fabulous these two pieces are. Both are stunning. Oh, how I wish I had an ounce of your creativity. Have you ever thought about opening a jewelry store? I would be a frequent shopper.

Miriam Prantner said...

These look great! Thanks for the tip on the modge podge....I totally would not have done that and I'm loving the Jumbo sneak!

Tenia Nelson said...

Awesome creations dearie!!!

StampendousGraphics said...

Wendy, these projects are fantastic! Absolutely love (as always) what you've done with the resin over tissue look! Wonder if just pouring a thin layer of resin over tissue on a silicone mat would result in a finished thing easy to punch and cool enough to layer... ooh...

Susie said...

Your projects are amazing! But of course so are you!

Beetique said...

I really like the little landscape necklace!

Patti Krauss said...

Love the jewelry. It's been so nice seeing how everyone has done something a little different with the resin. I can't wait to try this.

Wendy, these are beautiful and I am fond of the bubbles, too! I would love to have the bangle in a ring size. Wouldn't that look cool? I would wear the necklace on any summer day. Great job!!

Lea said...

Love both projects! The bracelet is so cool and I love the tiny landscape.

Queen Mary said...

Limitless design possibilities, I'm awestruck!

Pam Hornschu said...
