Window Messages Banner

Today we’re sharing a wonderful stamp set that helps you make a really quick card or a much more involved project. It’s so versatile, it’s up to you! This is our darling Window Messages Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.

Window Messages Perfectly Clear Stamps

These stamps are tons of fun, if a piece is too big or the wrong shape, just stamp it and clip away part of the image. They are easy to cut out because most of the design fits in the square part of the stamp. The handy zigzag makes a great border, or you could use it as a stem for the flowers as Deb Antonick did here on her mixed media journal. She also used our Funky Alphabet to complete this project.

We’re extra excited because the always talented Vicky Papaioannou shared a terrific card featuring this set on her YouTube channel this week.  We’d love to share it with you here!

You can find more details on the construction of this card on Vicky’s blog at http://www.clips-n-cuts.com/2018/04/spring-card-nuvo-pencils/

The Stampendous Design team has some inspiration to share with this great set as well.

Today we want to show you our fabulous 6″ X 6″ Paris Map Cling Rubber StampThis awesome background is great for all your travel memories, it’s a wonderful map of Paris, completely hand-drawn by Fran herself.  She was inspired to do this by a trip she took to Paris last Summer.

Here are some of the samples Fran made with the Paris Bonjour Set and the Paris Map. You can click on them to see them larger, and we will work on putting them up on the website as well. Notice where she has used the free fleur de lis stencil that comes with the stamp set (the small ones), and where she has used the large fleur de lis die cut that comes in the cutting dies set.  Remember, we’ll give away three sets to lucky winners, with U.S. Addresses, who comment!!!

Take a quick look at this wonderful set along with Fran in her newest YouTube video:

Chicks at Home

Everyday Chicks Blog Banner

Everyday Chicks are having fun at home today. It’s so easy to have the right number of kids, moms, dads, cousins, uncles, aunts, whatever you need for your special family when you play with our terrific chicks. Every occasion can include the whole gang!

The chicks are premium clear stamps with a set of coordinating dies right in the package. You can find them in your favorite store or on our website by clicking the picture below.  You can see that the set comes with three sizes of chicks and a ton of everyday and special occasion accessories. The dies are all attached in one big piece so that you can easily clip them apart for use. They do not line up with the stamps to cut in a big group, because every stamp is separate to save on paper. There are 25 stamps, each with its own die. The accessories die cut right on the edge of the image, but the chicks have a little space around them so they look fluffy. You can color outside the lines on your chicks to get that fluffy, feathery look.

The Butterflies of Spring

Stampendous friend, Donna Cennimo, a decorative painter, created this gorgeous canvas featuring Stampendous butterflies and embossing powders. We are so excited that she shared them with us, and we thought you’d enjoy seeing this wonderfully colored nod to Spring.

Donna embossed each butterfly with two layers of Chunky Clear Embossing Powder then added colors as desired. She used Detail Black, Silver Tinsel, Purple, Blue, Chunky Gold and Chunky Silver on different areas of the butterflies. Then she attached them to one of her paintings and she has some left for other amazing projects.

Here are some closeups of the butterflies –

 

Thanks, Donna, for sharing such a pretty, Spring project with us. Your painting is wonderful and your army of butterflies are a colorful bit of cheer!!
