Our New All in Ones

Fran Seiford, Owner and Founder of Stampendous, understands that holiday card making can be time consuming. Plus, it’s not always easy to find images that go together to make the perfect card. Enter the All in Ones from Stampendous.

1-Collages8
All in Ones Stamp Collection

These darling stamps are the perfect size to make a whole card. Easy shapes to cut with scissors or simply stamp on a colored background, these stamps have a focal image, a background, a frame, and a phrase for the holidays. Just stamp it, sign it, mail it. OR get as creative as you like by combining with other stamps and embellishments!

Today we are taking a closer look at All in Ones with an Autumn and Fall theme. These two fun designs are great for seasonal greeting cards and note cards. Here is Scarecrow Kisses with a tweet friend to share in the moment.

Gathering All Snowflakes

At Stampendous we believe it’s not a finished project unless it sparkles and this week’s Build a Snowman theme is the perfect companion for our snowy Essentials products. Be on the lookout for projects made with these products while you are hopping around our design teams blogs.  If you missed seeing projects earlier this week then hop on over to Monday’s post.

Our newest release in July has a 3-D embossing powder with the essence of snow captured because it sparkles and when heated it turns puffy like snow!

It’s such a fantastic way to create large puffy snowflakes! Here’s a card by Laura Drahozal that uses Snowflake Sky Background stamp with Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder and our beautiful Antler Snowflake Stencil covered with Crystal Glitter as the main focus. You can check our her project on our website for all the details.

Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?

Come on, let’s play!  It seems like we haven’t seen our snow buddies in a while so we thought it would be a great time to create with them again.  Build A Snowman Perfectly Clear Stamps Set is our winter buddies building kit when snow isn’t in the weather forecast, so let’s have fun building a few snowmen to get a jump on a few winter card and scrapbook projects. The design team has their mittens on and shaping up some snowball creations for this week and we can’t wait for the fun to begin.

Dreamweaver Double Days Finale…a Bit of Magic with Mica

Here we are on our final day of Dreamweaver Double Days! We’ve loved all of your wonderful comments regarding the technique videos and the samples that we’ve shared here, as well as on the individual team blogs. This tells us that YOU love it when we share all of our not-so-secret tips with YOU! So…expect to see more in the future! Today’s video is a technique tutorial that always has the recipients of your creations going, “Ooooh and aaaah”! Follow along as Dreamweaver Stencils‘ founder, Lynell Harlow, demonstrates using mica powders* with Matte and Glossy Embossing Pastes

Amazing, isn’t it? And super easy to do. How about a double dip of samples from our team members featuring this technique?

Created by Alison Heikkila featuring the Dreamweaver Open Feather design with Pearlescent Embossing Paste and Metallic F/X powders. This technique is called Molten Magic!
Kristine_floral with dots F:X
Created by Kristine Reynolds featuring the Dreamweaver Stylized Dahlia, Matte Black Embossing Paste, and Metallic F/X mica powders.

WHOA! Wait just one minute, you say? Alison’s card is not the same technique at all. Mmmm. Yes it is, with one variation. This is the Molten Magic technique, so called because you paste-emboss just as in the video (preferably a glossy paste), sprinkle it with mica powders*, and HEAT it using a heat tool until it is puffy and bubbly. This adds great texture, and a totally different look, and all she did was heat it! Pssst, you can do this technique with Stampendous Fran•tagé Embossing Enamels, for a totally different look as well!

Now, let’s go see what the team members have been playing with for today. Oh, and leave them some love, please. They’ve worked hard this week!
