New Stampendous – July 2014 Release Online

 

2014_July_Banner_IntroOur newest products for the Holiday Season are now available on our Website. The Stampendous July Catalog contains more of all the things you love! We’ve added Cutting Dies and Coordinating images for Fall and Winter, there is spooky Halloween; fun, festive and inspirational Christmas; and lots of Snowman fun for your Winter greetings. There are new images from House-Mouse Designs® and almost all of our stamps still come in wood mounted or Cling Rubber™. And over 80% of our products are still Made in the USA!

We’ve made Fran’s Encrusted Jewel Technique easier than ever with our new Spoonful Kits, and we’ve really turned up the bling with our new Lux Mixes.  So much to enjoy.

Our team will be exploring all of it as the  year progresses, but this week, they’ve all shared their favorite projects from the July 2014 catalog with you as a kind of sneak peek! Let’s have a look!

We have a Winner! – We think…

The Winner from our December Challenge – Clean And Simple Holiday Cards is:

December 2013- CAS Christmas Cards Winner

December 2013- CAS Christmas Cards Winner

But it’s not posted on a blog or even Flickr as far as we can tell!  Hopefully you’ll recognize your work and email us at submissions@stampendous.com with your name and mailing address!  If we don’t hear from you by next week, we’ll draw another winner.

Thanks for playing everyone!! Super great cards from all the participants this time!

Our January Theme is New Year – so stamp out your resolutions. We’re getting the post up soon, but this way you can get started!

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!

But the stamping is so delightful!! We hope you have some time over the holidays to do some crafting just for yourself. Maybe you’ll get to play with those new goodies you got for Christmas?

Well if it’s a Winter theme you have in mind, we’ve got you covered in our July 2013 catalog! Ice Skates? We’ve got ‘em. Penguins? We’ve got ‘em. Snowflakes? Yep. Warm Sweaters? You betcha. (We even have winter mice, but they’re for next week, and snowmen the week after!) Come along and see what our terrific Design Team is sharing today to warm you up inside! Then sit on down and stamp the winter away!
