Pink Your Christmas!

[If you’re looking for the 31 Days of Halloween, the links are all HERE]

The latest additions to our Pink Your Life Collection by Nicoletta Zanella are just the most adorable Christmas stamps! We love how cute the sets with coordinating dies are! Finally a great way to make scenes and pop ups so easy with these sweet images!

We’re going to share again with these images in November, but we wanted to showcase them because the Pink Your Life team has done some really fun videos with them. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to check them out! These whimsical characters are so fun to color, and they lend themselves to some pretty creative techniques.

Take a look:

Their product introductory video is HERE on FACEBOOK

And this darling project by Nicoletta is super sweet!

Part of Your World 1: Look at this Stuff!

Isn’t it Neat?
Wouldn’t you say our collection’s complete?

We’ve been swimming with mermaids this week in our Part of Your World 1 series. Be sure to join us next week for Part of Your World 2: Under the Sea!

Today we’re sharing one of our most popular stamps of all time! Our Mermaid stamp has been with us since January 2011, and she’s still one of our best sellers.

P151 Mermaid Stamp

She’s been featured in some of the biggest craft stores, like Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics, and she’s been offered by most of our independent retailers as well. She’s been the focus of tons of wonderful projects like the ones below: (click on them to make them larger)

 

But the pièce de résistance, we’re sure you’ll agree, is this amazing project by Design Team Alumni Suzanne Czosek! This project is our all-time most pinned project on Pinterest! It’s been shared and pinned to boards almost 8,000 times! Isn’t it luscious, with all that Halo Glitter, and Color Fragments, and so much more goodness! It’s really one of our favorites ever!

Do you have a sample you’ve made with our beautiful Mermaid Stamp? We’d love to see it! Feel free to post it on social media and tag us with #Stampendous or @Stampendous. Or post it on our Stampendous Facebook Group, our Stampendous Flickr Group, or email us at submissions@stampendous.com.  You can also upload a Stampendous project of your own at any time at https://www.stampendous.com. On the front page of our site you’ll see a place to Submit Your Project.

This super popular product was one of the great innovations we released at #CHA2016! We love how we can use the simple pop-up construction in the center to make a pop up card out of just about anything! But the other Pop’cessories dies are just as exciting. Make boxes, placecards, stand up creations, and bobble/wobble projects with these innovative cutting dies. Check out Fran demonstrating this wonderful new product that has been one of the biggest hits of 2016.
