It’s more important than ever to support the small stores who have kept their doors open through this last year to keep bringing us the best in creative craft products. Stampendous wants to help you find a new store, if you don’t have one, and to help your favorite store, if you do! Store across the U.S. and Canada are hosting our Virtual Catalog Party this week on their Facebook Pages and websites. They’ll have new videos each day to share with you, featuring our newest projects and products.

Find a Participating Store

You can find a store that’s joining in by clicking on the link above. If your favorite store isn’t there, ask them to contact us to participate!

This week features a ton of projects using our POP Frames Die Set, POP Shapes Die Set, coordinating Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets, our new Slim Stamps, and lots more! You’ll see all kinds of “out of the box” ideas using these dies and stamps in clever ways, and we’ll supply the patterns and project sheets for many of them. We hope you’ll join us in supporting your favorite store!

So Karen, send us an email at submissions@stampendous.com with your U.S. mailing address, and we’ll get that right out to you!

This week we’re looking at the coordinating set POP Shapes! These shapes are wonderful to use with your POP Frame dies, but they also have their own pop up stage included so you can make darling pop up cards with this set alone. You can use them with patterned paper, so it’s a stand alone set, or we have a nice collection of new Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets that coordinate with the dies for extra fun!!

You can see that the POP Shapes Die Set includes shapes for the containers in each of these sets, the small animals, a pop up stage (the most popular one from our now retired Pop Up Stages Die Set), and a cloud-like die that can cut out any of the flower clusters, the ice cream scoop, and the cupcake top. The set is super versatile, and the pop up stage can be used either horizontally or vertically for added flexibility.

Here are some great samples we’ve made in-house, you can see they’re great for slim cards, WindowRamas, and just great A2 cards as well –

How would you like to win a set of POP Shapes Dies? Well leave us a comment on our blog this week, or on one of the posts from our design team! You’ll get one entry for each comment into a random drawing for a set of POP Shapes Dies.

Our Design Team will be posting new projects all week! Jamie’s up today!

The three newest Perfectly Clear Stamps supporting her lessons are perfect for combining or using separately to create colorful cards and mini-masterpieces to share with friends and family.

In Lesson 137, Fran focuses on the Dolphin Play and Go Fish sets of stamps showing how to use their many, interactive pieces to build various scenic panels. She also studies new background effects for creating underwater, ocean scenes.

Sepia Tones Create Dynamic Depth
