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!
It’s time to say au revoir to our Paris Bonjour set! But it’s certainly not adieu! You’ll see a lot more of this great set in the future, and we are adding new projects to our website all the time! Just visit http://www.stampendous.com and search Paris up at the top to watch as they get uploaded! Today we want to show you our fabulous 6″ X 6″ Paris Map Cling Rubber Stamp. This 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. They walked 29K steps all over this magical city!
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:

The beauty of Paris is famed the world over. Walking her charming streets is the one place in Europe that looks exactly how you’ve always imagined it would look. Small sidewalk cafes, the stunning Tour d’Eiffel, the Champs Elysees! It’s all incredible and awe inspiring. What would you MOST like to see in the City of Lights? We’d love to hear about your favorite Paris memory or dream. We’re giving away three sets of this beautiful stamp set and matching cutting dies this week! If you missed the chance to comment on Monday, be sure to do so as well as today. Our Official Contest Rules are always HERE.
We sent our wonderful Paris Bonjour set and the matching dies to the amazing Vicky Papaioannou and she worked her magic, as usual. We just love how she combines products to create a stunning layout.

Going out into the world with the whole family can be such an adventure! Keeping track of your chicks, is always a challenge as well. With our Everyday Chicks and their handy cutting dies, you can celebrate the victory of getting everyone together for Mother’s Day or just getting out of the house in the morning! Everyday Chicks can do it all!
Check out a few cards by our own Fran Seiford showing the chicks in action. You can click on the picture to visit the project on our website with complete supply lists and instructions.
You’ll notice on these cards that our terrific chicks are designed especially to complement our Greetings Galore Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. This set of greetings has a clean, crisp font that goes perfectly with our fluffy chicks and provides a wonderful amount of versatility when used on its own or with any other stamps!
Our talented Design Team is playing with our chicks this week as well! Please flap on over to their blogs and give them some love.
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.
Our very own Fran Seiford has made some super fun cards featuring our chicks. Click on each one to be taken to the project page on our website for step by step instructions and a full supply list.

Our Chicks are designed so that you can stamp and die cut a whole chick family of any size , and show all your family’s everyday activities involving everyone! We’ll be sharing our Chicks all week, so we hope you’ll join us for our regular blog posts on Wednesday and Friday to see more of this great set in action. Here’s a card from our own Fran Seiford.
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!!
