Blog Hop with Arnold Grummer

Arnold Grummer Blog Hop Banner

Have you ever made paper? We’d love to hear about your experiences if you have! At Stampendous, we’ve been making handmade paper for decades, and we even used to distribute the wonderful Arnold Grummer’s Papermaking Kit to our retail stores. We reconnected with this great company at the Creativation show this year. They proposed a fun blog hop! We sent Stampendous products to their team, and they provided papermaking kits to ours.

For the next two weeks, we’ve got some great projects to share with you as the teams play with the wonderful products we’ve exchanged.

Today, check out this beautiful creation by Becky Conley. Click on her name, or the picture to learn more about how she made it!

Hey, Wild Thing!

Totally Wild Banner

Our new wild stamps really make our heart sing! You’ve seen our new animals with cutting dies, our great backgrounds to put them on, and now we want to share our two new Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets with you. Our Jungle Life and Jungle Greenery sets are so easy to use to expand your wild projects. Take a look at these great sets!

Each of them contains our premium, photopolymer stamps, made in the USA, that work well with so many inks (although we prefer VersaFine by Tsukineko!). They each come with a colored index sheet as well, so you can have a quick coloring guide to get you started.

Our very own Fran Seiford had a lot of fun playing with these great sets! Here are a couple of ideas.

Some Like it Wild!

Totally Wild Banner

Our new wild collection in the new April 2019 catalog will leave you roaring with delight and wanting all of our newest products.

We looked at our new wild animal cling rubber stamp and cutting die sets on Tuesday. They are HERE if you missed them. Each of them comes with a new circle window die for your WindowRama cards, shaker cards, or other layered card types.

In addition to the animals we’ve brought out two, new 6″ X 6″ background stamps that will give your wild cards that finished look.

Our Wild Texture is a combination of animal fur patterns that lets you use part of the stamp or the whole thing to create fun backgrounds.

We also brought out a gorgeous Fern Garden stamp for the true, deep jungle look. You’ll find this wonderful background so versatile and the perfect background for your floral, garden, and wild images.

We gave Decorative Painter, Deb Antonick, our new jungle friends and these backgrounds, and she created the most adorable set of four framed canvas pieces featuring the Wild Texture and our sweet new animals. We admit it, we’re in love! Take a look!
