Love is in the Air

Valentine banner

We’re celebrating LOVE with the rest of the world this week! Valentine’s Day is Wednesday, February 14, and we have so many wonderful images for celebrating! Our Design Team sends their love this week by creating gorgeous projects with our love-ly images. You can always find any of our love images in the Stamps/Valentines Category on our website. You can visit it by clicking on that link or on the banner above.

You can see by our banner that some of our most loving images feature the irrepressible House-Mouse Family! These little mice are always showering one another with love, just like in the image above called Glitter Hearts! In fact, some of the wonderful design team from the House-Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog  (or if you’re need of a steady stream of sweet mice, visit them on Facebook) will be joining us this week to share their Valentine greetings with all of you. Let’s start with them:

Bunny Hoyle

Vickie Y

Christine Craig

Lorraine Aquilina

Sue Drees

And we thought we’d share the Valentine work of the recent winners on the HMFMCB –

Misti

Becky S

Janette van Otterio

 

Even artist Andy Skinner’s Team is dreaming of Valentines this week. Check out these incredible mixed media posts. We sure love them!

Brenda Brown

 

And, of course, our own Design Team has some love to share with you!

Louise Healy

Alison Heikkila

We hope you’ve got your favorite Valentine something sweet that’s ready to go! We’ll be back Wednesday to share more love!!

Vicky P is Playing with Flowers

Vicky Papaioannou is playing in her journal

 

The amazing Vicky Papaioannou is playing in her art journal again, and she’s chosen some of our favorite new stamps! Our wonderful Coneflowers are taking shape in her book which is surely destined to be a Greek national treasure when she’s finished.

Enjoy her gorgeous artwork! We’ll be featuring all of our new flowers in a week of blogs, March 19-23. But we just couldn’t wait to share this incredible video with you!

You can see all the details on her blog Clips-N-Cuts.

Here are the Stampendous Products she used: (you can click on the pictures to see them larger or to see other samples on our website)

Spring Borders Die Set – Part III

Spring Borders Die set

We’re moving to the final two dies in our Spring Borders Die Set today! This versatile set is just fantastic for your Spring Project Needs. And don’t worry, you’ll be seeing lots more of this great set as it becomes a Stampendous Classic! In case you missed our previous posts, see them here – MONDAYWEDNESDAY.  You’ll want to leave comments on our posts, and the posts of our Design Team to be eligible to win your own set of Spring Borders Dies! We’ll give away three sets this week and the Official Rules are Always HERE!

The next die from this awesome set is the fanciest of the group. It’s got such an elegant line, you’ll want it for all your flowers and other beautiful stamps. Notice that it only cuts along the top of this image for a lacy edging piece.

 

 

 

 

The final die is a Victorian style edge that works alone, or perfectly mimics the bottom edge of the previous die, allowing you to create a stunning edge piece. This gives you twice the duty from both of these versatile dies!

Our Design Team has one more round of cards to share with you today. Be sure to comment on their blogs for extra chances to win! And keep your eyes open as we continue to share with our newest images! You’ll see these great borders again and again in our inspiration! We know you’ll love them.

Spring Borders Die Set – Part II

Spring Borders Die set

We’re in love with our Spring Borders Die set! If you missed the Monday post, be sure to check it out here! MONDAY

We’re continuing today with an in-depth look at two more of the dies in this set!

The first one is the darling heart cut-out die! This die is designed to cut a “window” in your card’s 5-1/4″ X 4″ or larger, layer. It allows for paper piecing or a lovely peek at the inside of the card. Cutting it out also provides you with lots of little hearts you can use as confetti in your card.

The next die is the Ribbon Threader Die. These darling daisies just beg for a ribbon, twine, or strip of patterned paper to be threaded through their little holes. Such a cute way to add ribbon to a card or project!

Vicky Papaioannou – Day 5 – Snowman Trio

Vicky P Snowman Trio Card

We have had so much fun this week with Vicky Papaioannou’s wonderful videos using Stampendous Products. She’s just so talented and creative, and we love seeing what she’ll do with anything we send to her. It’s always astonishing!

Today she’s using a favorite from this season. Our Snowman Trio has been so popular that we sold out of them in our warehouse, but because our orders are filled by local stamping, scrapbooking, and craft stores, we made sure that our fulfillers had some to send to you. We can’t give this one away as a prize (we literally have zero), but you can order it on our website, at least through this weekend. So for today’s giveaway, we’ll give another of our Smiling Snowman sets from yesterday. U.S. Mailing Address only – Official Rules are always Here!

Here’s Vicky’s adorable video for today –

And you can see more details and still photos on her blog post HERE – http://www.clips-n-cuts.com/2017/12/snowman-card-stampnedous/

Vicky P Smiling Snowman Banner

Today the fabulous Vicky Papaioannou joins us for Day 4 of her week playing with Stampendous 2017 Christmas stamps! She’s using one of our very favorites today, our Smiling Snowman. He just looks soooo happy, and cutting him out with the included dies makes him so easy to use. We even left a little space around his fuzzy hat so that the fluff didn’t get cut off! The perfect spot for some white Fun Flock or glitter!

Check out Vicky’s terrific video here –
