Hello Stampers! Sorry to be absent for a bit, we’ve been tweaking our new website getting ready for the grand reveal. It just took a bit more tweaking than anticipated. Thanks so much for your patience as we’ve worked out the kinks. We’ll make a separate post for that before the end of the week!

Last week we didn’t get to post much, but our Design Team sure did. They were working with the best of Stampendous’ Inspirational offerings sending Easter thoughts out to all of you for our new month! Don’t you love the gorgeous samples by DT Member Wendy Price above? Such rich, luscious color. She’s fantastic! Hopefully you’ll enjoy the creative and gorgeous samples they all made! Hop around, leave them some love in the form of supportive comments! We’ll be back with more excitement tomorrow!

Coloring our World with Tombow

Blog Hop_Stampendous

We’re having so much fun this week coloring with Tombow. And we have a very special treat for you today! Tombow’s amazing designer Marie Browning made a terrific tutorial of techniques for our Design Team to learn to use these terrific products. We’ve got permission from the folks at Tombow to share it with YOU! We think you’ll find these techniques as easy and dynamic as we did. If you click on this you can download the pdf to your computer to follow along with Marie.

If you find yourself making something cool with your Tombow markers and Stampendous stamps, we’d love to link to your creation on the web! You can tag us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest by putting #Stampendous in your post.

Our Design Team has some cool things to share and we’ll be giving away prizes at the end of this week, so you’ll want to comment on all the projects! We also hope you’ll like us on Facebook and any other Social Media where you find yourself! Thanks!!

TombowUSA Collaboration Week

Blog Hop_Stampendous

This week we are absolutely delighted to be working with the team at TombowUSA, creators of amazing markers and adhesives. Over the last 40 years Tombow has been expanding their flagship line of pencils to include pens, adhesives, and premium markers for all types of artists and art projects.

These markers are waterbased and blended with a blending pen, slightly different than the alcohol based brands our Design Team is used to using these days. This collaboration gave many of them the opportunity to learn something new. We always leap at that!! Marie Browning, one of Tombow’s top designers, graciously created a learning guide combining our stamps and these terrific products. We hope to share some of that guide with you later this week! Meanwhile, she also created for us our Tombow coloring guide for coloring the House-Mouse Designs® mice. You can find that HERE.

Because of the way Tombow structures their blog posts, it will be just our team for the beginning of the week, then their team will join us on Friday for the big hop! There will, of course, be prizes! And you will want to be sure to like our pages on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Pinterest, and subscribe to and comment on our blogs. Lots of opportunities to win. Plus, of course, you need to have a US address (sorry!). We’re excited to share.

Here’s who is sharing today:

HappyHoppers® are on the Loose!

We are so blessed and grateful to be carrying the House-Mouse Designs® characters here at Stampendous. We opened our collection last Fall with the delightful mice for Halloween, Fall and Christmas. Then in our October Catalog we added the darling HappyHoppers® bunnies to the team, and these sweet rabbits have stolen our hearts! We added more of them to our line in the January Catalog, and this week our team is showing you their favorite creations with these wonderful creatures from the pen of Ellen Jareckie! So many of them are perfect for Mother’s Day, or Baby, or Father’s Day. We’re just so excited to have these options. In this stamp Hop-It reads a story to Bumble and Itty Bit! So sweet.

Let’s see what our designers have posted for the beginning of this week:
