Join us as we partner with Spellbinders!

Spellbinders Holiday Hop

For years we’ve been huge fans of Spellbinders’ Nestabilities Dies. They let us make amazing cards and projects with loads of layers without loads of work! Now we’ve entered into a year-long collaboration with them, and you’ll be seeing lots of Stampendous on their design team blog, and our design team is having a blast playing with Spellbinders products!!

We’re kicking off the collaboration with a terrific Holiday Blog Hop! For the next three days – November 18, 19, and 20th – we’ll be showcasing some fantastic projects featuring Spellbinders dies and our great stamps! And there are PRIZES!

Each day you’ll want to start at the Spellbinders’ Blog. There you’ll find a list of the participating partner companies for that day.  You must visit ALL the partner blogs and those of their designers to win. So sharpen your commenting pencils!  Here’s who is playing -

Spellbinders has compiled a prize package for each day of the hop consisting of three of their brand new die sets/templates plus product from the sponsoring companies! Each picture above links to that company’s blog!
But wait, there’s more! Because on our blog each of the three days we’ll be promoting the Spellbinders hop by giving away a prize package of our own. We’re pretty sure other companies are doing the same thing, so you’ll want to visit each one each day for maximum chances to win goodies!!! Of course we’d also really appreciate it if you would like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
Clear your schedule… throw a log on the fire… put on some coffee… pick up a kitten… and plan for the best inspiration of your year!! We’re excited!!! Join us!

Quick Cards with Iconic Stampendous Stamps

Spending too much time stamping your quick cards and not enough time finishing them? Save a few extra minutes by using our Cling Jumbo Stamps. Here are two sets with sample ideas to get your cardmaking mojo on the move.

Cling Delicate Snow – CRS5069

Cling Delicate Snow – CRS5069

Here’s what you could expect from our Delicate Snow set. Embossing these snowflakes really adds to the delicate detail to create a gorgeous card with WOW! Krissy Fossmeyer has that WOW factor for her Delicate Snowflake Card. The adhesive pearls add just the right touch quickly and easily.

There are some fun stamps in our Top Hat Snowman that span the  width of a tall card. You can see this set in action on Debi Hammons’ card.

A darling little snowman with his nested friend can be done again! There are instructions available on our website here. And to wrap up our quick card ideas here’s what our designer of the day is sharing.

Whooooo’s Ready for Halloween?

We are! This week it’s OWL about the owls! We have a study of owls to whoot about this week. Today we have our eye on PenPattern Owl who is designed for coloring in delightful patterns or even create more mesmerizing detail with doodling in pen. You’ll be seeing him popping in here on our blog and on the designers blog all this week and it starts here with this stunning Fran•táge wreath by Fran Seiford!


The owl has been detailed with more pen patterns and framed in a leafy wreath. You are going to love the detail in this wreath (just click the photo to enlarge the view). You should also take a look at this Project Page too, for instructions on how to create one of our own.  It shares some handmade papers created for the die-cut leaves and a list of Essentials that make this wreath glimmer and glisten.

There are two available stamps options for our patterned owl that is available in a local store near you or online store.

Raven Wrap Up!

Ravens Ruled this week on our blog! We’re so glad you could join us!

Several of our Design Team Members made great samples using our Crows and Ravens, but they were posting with the Dreamweaver/Core’dinations collaboration and didn’t have another chance to post their projects! We wanted you to see them here.

Clicking on a photo below will take you to that project on our website with full supplies and instructions so you can get flying with us.

Thanks for joining us this week!!

Counting(down) Crows to Halloween

Stampendous crow and raven stamps are among our very top sellers this time of year!  In addition to our new Crow Caw stamp, and our classic Raven Background stamp, we also have our terrific Crowscape! This large background stamp is perfect for adding any focal point or greeting! Take a look at this amazing card from Jennifer Dove featuring this image! Love how she tore the top then “stitched” it closed!
