Brushed Alphabet Greetings

We’re sharing our Brushed Wishes and our Great Big Greetings this week. For the article about our Brushed Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set, see TUESDAY’s post. We’ve even added a new alphabet to our collection with our new brush lettering. It’s so clever, too! Fran wanted to make this alphabet big enough for your mixed media, decorative painting, scrapbooking, or cardmaking uses. In order to get the letters bigger, she left out the Q, X, and Z in the set and supplied you with a handy extra stroke that can be used as quotation marks, an apostrophe, or can be added to other letters to make the missing ones. Here’s how it works (this guide is included with your alphabet set):

You can see how this cute alphabet makes it easy to put any greeting you want on your card or project:

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine banner

Valentine’s day accounts for over 143 million cards* mailed each year to family, friends, and loved ones, and that doesn’t count children who hand out cards and treats at school! It’s the second biggest card sending holiday of the year (there is significant debate over whether Christmas or Mother’s Day is number 1, but Valentine’s Day is number two on every list!)

Well, we’ve got you covered for your “love” sending needs! We have something for everyone on your Valentine list! Have a look a the sweetness our Design Team is sharing today! We hope your day is full of love!

Curios are Here!

We’re in love with our new Curios stamps and their whimsical, colorful presence in our office and our craft area! They not only make us smile with their fun shapes and colors, they inspire us with card and project ideas all day! By the end of the day we’re brimming with great ideas for using them when we get home. It’s been a very fun experience. These little pops of home decor with their premium quality stamps on the back are just delightful.

Spring Borders Dies – WINNERS!

Spring Borders Die set

Last week we had so much fun with our Spring Borders Dies, and you’ll want to keep watching for them in the future since our team used them on so very many samples!

We have some winners from last week! If you winners will send an email to submissions@stampendous.com and send us your U.S. Mailing address, we’ll get these darling dies out to you immediately! Thank you for your kind comments! They mean a lot to us.

Samantha Houp from Janelle’s blog

Jeanne Beam from Louise’s blog

Tracy Magner from Jamie’s blog

Just a reminder to everyone. If we draw your name as a winner, but have no way to confirm that you live in the U.S., we draw another name. You need to make sure that some profile for you somewhere tells that you have a U.S. address. Even if you just write United States for your address online. We do try hard to verify, but this week we had to replace some winners who had no data available.

The amazing Vicky Papaioannou is playing in her art journal again, and she’s chosen some of our favorite new stamps! Our wonderful Coneflowers are taking shape in her book which is surely destined to be a Greek national treasure when she’s finished.

Enjoy her gorgeous artwork! We’ll be featuring all of our new flowers in a week of blogs, March 19-23. But we just couldn’t wait to share this incredible video with you!

You can see all the details on her blog Clips-N-Cuts.
