Stampendously Dreaming of Stencils

p.txt

We are having a blast this week playing with the products that Dreamweaver Stencils sent over to us! And we can sure tell from the samples their Dream Team has made so far this week that they’re having a ton of fun with our Blossom Beauty and the matching Cutting Die set. We sure get that, because we’ve had so much fun ourselves making projects, art journals, and putting beautiful hairstyles on this incredible image.

 

We’ve even created a free set of downloadable hairstyle templates for your Blossom Beauty! The zip file contains pdf files so you can print your templates and cut them out with a craft knife, or there are .svg files so you can use your Silhouette, Zing, Scan N Cut, Gazelle, Lynx, EClips, Pazzles and other machines that can use these files to cut out the templates. We suggest that you use a printable transparency or clear plastic file folder to make your template durable and reusable.  You can download your templates HERE on the Blossom Beauty Product Page.

Our new Blossom Beauty has rapidly become one of our favorite new products. And our fans agree. You absolutely MUST see the amazing things that our owner and designer Fran Seiford has done with this simple seeming stamp set. Check out the series of YouTube videos we’ve published showing you how to make this lady look just like any of your friends, or how to add chic, designer hairdos to her head for the latest fashion statement. She’s versatile beyond our wildest dreams.

 

Now check out what the Dream Team and Stampendous Design Team Members have done with her today. Be sure to leave comments on each one for your best chance to win!

PenPatterns are Here!

Fran has done it again, and in our April 2014 Catalog we’re introducing one of her newest ideas, PenPatterns.

Folks seem to have taken to doodling in and out of shapes for their stamped artwork lately, so Fran has created some images that are perfect for this new trend. These charming images have large open spaces ideal for doodling your own patterns into with either black or colored pens or pencils.

PenPatterns are available in both wood mounted and Cling Rubber

You can also enjoy stamping patterns into them with our new PenPatterns background tiles. (psst…these also make great card and page backgrounds!)

Finally, these terrific images make just plain fun coloring! We took them with us to Los Angeles this past Saturday for La Feria de los Niños and the kids had an absolute blast coloring them! Our good friends at Faber-Castell USA were good enough to supply colored pencils for us to use. Our friends at Prima Marketing sent along some fantastic adhesive jewels and paper flowers. The kids were in heaven! Look at this proud miss with her finished work!

And have you ever seen anyone color more intently than these two little crafters? Our new PenPatterns were a HUGE hit!

Catching Up!

We’re still trying to play catch up here in our offices at Stampendous! Building a new website can be quite a challenge. But it’s finished! And we’re celebrating with our newest catalog products from our April 2014 Catalog.

Our Design Team is giving you a Sneak Peek of our newest goodies. These beautiful designs for Spring and Summer will blow you away! We’ve added some precision cutting dies to coordinate with our terrific new flower offerings, and our Blossom Beauty stamp is already proving to be a fan favorite in a big way.  We’ve even got a video available already!

If you’d like to view the April Catalog, just click on it here. You can download it, print it, or just enjoy it online as a flippy book where it doesn’t take up any space in your home or on your computer!
Stampendous April 2014 Catalog

Our terrific April products are also now available on our brand new website! Just like always, your orders will be filled by local retail stores using the Shopatron order fulfillment system. It’s such a good way to support small business while shopping online. In many cases you can even pick up the products in the store to avoid shipping charges! You’ll find all the newest goodies under the What’s New Icon at http://www.stampendous.com!

You’ll be seeing a lot of the April Catalog Samples here in the coming weeks, but we asked our Design Team this week to share their favorites with you! Here are the links to those terrific posts. Be sure to leave them some love in the form of your happy comments while you’re there!

These April Flowers Need No Showers!

Last week our Design Team celebrated with a look at all the terrific Stampendous floral images! We always tell beginning stampers that if you just get some good flowers and a good set of greetings, you can make cards for any occasion. It’s so true! Flowers are appropriate for everything. And our Jumbo Cling Rubber Flowers come with a free Template and Mask so you can stencil backgrounds, mask the images, mask the backgrounds, use chalk, spritzy stuff, sponging, embossing…the sky is the limit! Let’s take a look at what our Design Team has done with these April Flowers!

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!

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:
