Pop Ups and Puppies – Friday

It’s been a dog-gone wonderful week with our four-legged friends and we think they were the most well-behaved, affectionate and allergen – free canines around!

We almost forgot to share our super cool video that gives you ideas and instructions on the Pop Up Kitties and Puppies Stamp Sets with the coordinating dies. If you haven’t seen it, do check it out. Fran shares some amazing projects with tips and techniques to get these pups put together just right.

We have some great sentiments that to bark about here. These sayings and accent images will be just what you need to complete your puppies project with sentiments for birthday, encouragement, humor, life and love.

Having just the right sentiment makes these Pop Up Puppies real characters. Here a few samples from this week’s designers post that show the sentiments so well.

When I mentioned earlier this week that the in-house designers created litters of these puppies it was not short of the truth. Look at these adorable cards all made by Debi Hammons!

We have more puppies to see! Some of our designers have doubled-up the activities going on here on our blog this week so it’s possible you might have spotted their designs earlier today on our super blog hop with Linnie Blooms. We would love for you to join us there as well, there are prizes up for grabs.

Dreamweaver Thursday: Mixing it Up!

The Stampendous/Dreamweaver team have been really busy this week between the Pop Ups and Puppies challenge and the Linnie Blooms Hop, but fortunately a little or a lot of Dreamweaver fits in perfectly. Some of our team members have even managed to incorporate all three into one project (‘cuz they’re talented that way!). So, in the line up below you’ll find a mix of everything for oodles of inspiration in your crafting this week! Here’s a few sneak peeks:

Pop Up Puppies Abound

We’re back today with more adorable puppies! These incredible little hounds can be made by the dozen, cut out with the coordinating dies and mix and matched for scrapbook pages, cards, party favor bags and more. Our in-house team was producing samples by the litter for our catalog that we are sharing here on the blog this week to show they are just that much fun to use!

What’s more thoughtful gesture as sending a card to someone who adores bow-wow’s of all kinds than a card with one popping out of a birthday box. This terrier Fido is ready to celebrate that someone’s birthday with a lot of heart. Heart balloons that is, that are added to the tabs of the Pop Up Die panel with the pretty pup up front and ready for the party! Here Fido borrowed a bow from the Pop Up Kitties Stamp Set so she would be dressed up for the party. So many wonderful parts to this card that make up such a great surprise inside the birthday card.

This next card has a well-behaved pup sitting along a tree-lined path to encourage the card’s recipient with a sentiment from the Life Words Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. It is certain, that it will be a treat to see for whoever opens up this card!

The Frugal Crafter, Lindsay Weirich inked up her set of Pop Up Puppies Stamp Set and made a video of her super quick card for a birthday party her son was invited to attend. She is a testament to creating great projects when you are strapped for time and still getting great results. Her card turned out so adorable! See for yourself just how quickly she put together her card!

We’ve warmed up the inspiration stage with some puppy play and there is more from these designers sharing their special hound projects today on their blogs!

We are Sew Having Fun!

linnie blooms Blog hop banner

The Linnie Blooms line of no sew solution products were created to fit the need for working with different art mediums  on a suitable canvas. This all happened for the owner and founder, Linda Barutha, who in a few short years went from creating a scrapbooking retreat in Central Wisconsin to creating her own line of products from a trend she recognized in her artwork design and wanted to share. We are so happy that she did!

Linnie Blooms and Stampendous Hopping Together

linnie blooms Blog hop banner

This projects this week by default will be mixed media style but don’t let that worry you at all. Some people start looking for the exit signs when that style is mentioned but really the definition of mixed media is one simple rule. Create using at least two different art mediums! When you start with stamps and an ink pad then add products from Linnie Blooms it’s already a mixed media project! From there it’s easy to add ribbon, buttons, paper, paint and more or as little as you decide!

We are hopping all this week and we hope you haven’t missed any projects so far! If you are just joining us today we have posted designer projects before today so if you want to jump back and see them go to the link for the post on Monday.

We have so much fun with these collaboration we think you should have a chance to as well, so there are Prizes!! Three lucky winners will each win a set of Linnie Blooms Fabric Mini File Folders just like they provide for our team.

With graduation ceremonies upon us in the US, I thought a fabulous and adorable graduating puppy card was just right to start off the week. This smart canine was created by in-house designer Terry Braddock and it is created with our Pop Up Die Set so he is popping away from the inside of the card when opened!

A Picnic Without the Ants?

It just wouldn’t be a picnic without the appearance of some determined and hungry ants scouting for precious picnic morsels to take home and share! We’ve brought the picnic spread earlier this week, so it’s time the ants show up for their share of the spotlight. Cupcake Ant is appropriately at the beginning of the introduction line, because his motto is “Eat dessert FIRST!”

This dessert driven ant is adorably the focus of Debi Hammons card and he has opted for the cherry on top as his first bite. That’s one happy ant!

You are going to get a giggle from these happy trotters who have a different spin on the whole food diet idea. This Lunch Line stamp would be so sweet as a border for a picnic party menu or on a scrapbook layout. Of course, these ants would do well being the highlight on any project.

Here is a fabulous card using Lunch Line and a sentiment just right for these happy ants. This is a fun card great to send out after a day in the park.

Here is the Life Picnic stamp used on Debi’s card and it is great to go along with all of our picnic themed image stamps. I think the ant has mistaken the punctuation for a few pieces of food leftover over from the picnic.

CRG126 Cling Life Picnic Rubber Stamp

Create your own pattern paper with these adorable marching ants creating a great backdrop to a picnic layout or invitation. Bring your own army of ants to the picnic in fun sandwich wrap bands and drink sleeves. These ants will do so many good things for your next picnic, just ink them up and march them across your project!

It’s been a great week of picnic fun and we sure enjoyed sharing this summer style collection of stamps with you. It isn’t over quite yet, because there is still more to see from our fabulous design team today!
