Stack Art Challenge – The Finale

Wow, what a week! Hope you’ve been hopping around all the blogs leaving comments so you can maybe win some Stack Art! The prize consists of one Stack Art Kraftboard Kit, one Stack Art Stamp Set and one Stack Art Elements kit. We’ll give three of these prize packages to commenters this week on the participating blogs!

Designers have done so many fantastic things with our Stack Art kraftboard pieces. It’s so fun to see all the possibilities.

Here, Stampendous owner Fran Seiford, has created a tribute to all four seasons using the Stack Art Regal Bird Kit and the Tree Poem Stamp. Punching holes and wiring the kraftboard pieces together, this simple but dynamic piece was easy to assemble.

In a similar project, Fran used our Floral Lady to create a lovely Spring themed Triptych. Assembled with large jump rings fashioned of wired.

Finally a little Snow Fun is just as easy to make. Here brads are placed through the holes and then wired together in the back. This features our Bird Knit Hat, Sweet Snowgirl, and Winter Wonderland stamps.

Stampendous – To Die For!

We’ve had a terrific response to our flower dies we introduced in our April Catalog, so our July Catalog contained even more of these great tools!

Our dies are different! Instead of the cutting line being in the center of the metal like most dies, on ours the cutting line is right on the inside edge. This makes lining them up a little different, but what you see through the die is what you get when you cut.  It’s best to tape them to the paper (or thin metal or fabric or whatever) to make sure they don’t slip out of alignment. Or use a magnetic platform when cutting them.

We have two new sets for the Holidays. Leaves and Snowflakes. And each die set fits TWO sets of Cling Rubber stamps.

Design Team Member Suzanne Czosek made this amazing wreath for our July Catalog using the Leaves Die set and our new Spoonful Embossing Enamel and Elements Kits – click on the picture for the tutorial on our website.

Of course our wonderful Design Team has more projects “to die for” and shared them on their blogs this week! Check out the terrific inspiration and be sure to leave them some great comments!

Our Design Team is very appropriately stamping with our newest Snowmen this week! Many of them are snowed in with their children, and happy for a few more days of Winter Break, but baby, it’s cold out there!!  Remember, if you make real snowmen, or just stamp with ours, send us a picture or tag us on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest photos with #Stampendous.

Here are the terrific posts from Tuesday and Wednesday featuring our terrific new Snowman Banners and Build a Snowman Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets as well as our darling Snowball Fight and Sweet Snowgirl stamps.

We’re counting our blessings in sunny Southern California this week, and our prayers are with our friends all over the country (and the world) who are trudging through record cold and snow! We’re sending warm thoughts your way!!

We’re also super busy building a new website experience for you, and gearing up for the BIG Craft and Hobby Association show in Anaheim this weekend. Sorry if we’ve fallen behind! Our Design Team has still been sharing, however, and we wanted to make sure you caught their posts!

Last week they shared our House-Mouse Designs® Winter Themed Stamps! You can see their fantastic cards at the following links:

Kristine Reynolds – Hang on Tight, More Mice

Tenia Nelson – Ski Run

Rhea Weigand – Ski Run, Hold on Tight

Jennifer Dove – Headed Your Way, The Love of a Friend, As Sweet as Candy

This week the theme is Snowmen! If you’re even able to get outside to make a snowman, we’d love to see a photo of yours! Tag us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Instagram if you post your snowman photos. Use #Stampendous any time to get our attention!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!!

We’re celebrating Winter this week, the Stampendous way! With lots of warm beverages, a kitty snuggled in our lap, and some great stamping going on in the craft room! (only a TRUE crafter can still stamp with a cat on her lap!) We really love the way a light sprinkling of our Chunky White Embossing Enamel or our Shabby White Embossing Enamel can mimic actual snow on your card (just sprinkle and heat from underneath so it doesn’t blow off…no ink or glue needed).  Our Design Team is bringing you lots of chilly inspiration for your Warm Winter greetings going out to your friends, or for your scrapbook pages full of snow much fun!
