More New Goodies from Stampendous!

The Stampendous January 2014 Catalog is full of new products, innovations, and terrific new designs from the minds of Stampendous Owner Fran Seiford, House-Mouse Designs® Artist Ellen Jareckie, and international Mixed Media Artist Nathalie Kalbach. All this genius has brought us some terrific new goodies for 2014!  Our Design Team will be sharing all week with their favorites. Here’s who is sharing today:

We’re particularly excited about some of the designs we’ve created that stem from the growing interest in Mixed Media techniques. We shared Nathalie’s cool stamp images with you last week.  But our own Fran Seiford has been busy creating Mixed Media images as well.

Brush Strokes Mixed Media Stamp Set

This terrific set of organic brush strokes is perfect when you don’t want to risk ruining your artwork by using actual paint on a brush. (yes, I have done this many times!). It’s so perfect to ink up a stamp like this, in any color you choose, and create an attractive background pattern you can be sure won’t run, bleed, or get blobby! A huge relief for us more timid mixed media novices! The Brush Strokes set also comes with a terrific, FREE template to add even more variety to your projects!

Another super favorite this year is the Mixed Media Dress Form Stamp Set. Such a popular style and image right now with some terrific background fabric images to work with it!

This stamp set also comes with a fantastic FREE template for masking the parts of the dress form or the outside area to make stamping so much easier!

Here’s a fun sample we made by stamping the backgrounds, sponging inside the template, then embossing the dress form on top. We offset it just a bit to make a “shadow” effect. Super wow, super fast! (the greeting and fabric texture background were stamped in bleach, you have to test several papers to find one that bleaches to the color you want)
