We’re back today with more projects using fantastic coordinated pattern paper by Graphic 45 Papers. Who doesn’t love paper that coordinates so beautifully together and just as much that it adds a polished touch to your project!
Our design team had plenty of fun patterns and holiday themes to use for our July catalog release and we really love how great they coordinate from page to page. As you can see from today’s project samples they do compliment each other.
So let’s take a hop on over to more inspiration with our designers posting their projects!
Oh, we are enchanted with paper, tangled up with it in our stamping, scrapbooking and mixed media pieces. So why not have pretty paper on hand to create instant texture and interest into your projects!
Not only are there new Stampendous products for fall, winter, Halloween, and Christmas you can see them in action on the UK shopping Hochanda TV starting today through Friday, in fact she’s on this hour if you want to watch the fantastic creations she makes with embossing and her Melt Media technique.
Keep your eyes on the Hochanda TV schedule and there will be more of our new catalog release showing up with great ways to use them. While the next show gets started you can see more here from our in-house designers and our design team.
Here are a few from our design team sharing a couple of their favorite projects from this release.
The temperatures are heating up, or not depending where you are on the globe, regardless we are jumping into cooler seasons here on the blog as we celebrate our July Catalog release this week!
We love the holiday months and the tons of the House-Mouse images that go along with them. Here’s a few of our design team samples to get us started this week, Check out the full release on our website here.
House-Mouse images are the creation and illustrated by Ellen Jareckie and we are delighted to offer them in premium American hardwood mount or Stampendous exclusive Cling Rubber with a full sized index on a cling vinyl mount for use with clear acrylic stamping blocks.
If you have House-Mouse character images and need help choosing which one you’ll use next there is a challenge blog that can help. Stop by on Monday’s for the current challenge at House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog.
Our designers were asked the near impossible task of sharing a couple of their favorite projects from this release and here are a few for today!
We love to be ready with a gift and sometimes those last minute ones are hard to wrap, but we have a handy solution. Download and print our pillow box template HERE on cardstock, grab some stamps and coloring medium and create a festively wrapped gift in no time.
Add your own style to gift bags whether they are brand new of upcycled. It seems a bag is available that can get a little jolly update for gift giving.
Of course, we hope your last minute gift wrapping isn’t too overwhelming. House-Mouse Monica relates if it is stacking up to Gifts Galore.
Now let’s see more wrapped up inspiration from our designers today –
This is THE week, we are wrapping up our Christmas images from the July 2015 catalog and you’ll be seeing anything that has to do with gifts, ribbon, wrapping paper and more! Here are a few cards by Fran Seiford, owner and illustrator of Stampendous Impressions. Enjoy!
The tree is decorated and the gifts are wrapped, greeting cards are sent and we can relax. Right?
This week our design team is wrapping up with some of their favorite holiday projects from the catalog and you just might find the wrapping theme on their blogs. Let’s see what these designers have in store for us today!
We’ve journeyed through the Nativity story this week, but not as far as the magi traveling with precious gifts for the holy babe. This gorgeous new Christmas stamp is perfectly sized for a dramatic card like this one from our Australian Distributor, Julie Makela at The Stencil Specialist.
Julie’s gorgeous colored image needs no extra decoration to adorn the card; it looks fantastic in those soft color pencil hues.
A simple wreath stamp image with the magic of Christmas wrapped into one sentence for a card, tag or scrapbook page. Really the possibilities are endless, but here’s an example to inspire you done by designer Tenia Nelson with sweetly colored wreath, baubles and bow. It’s simply adorable!
We can’t wait for you to see the rest of our featured designer projects for this week’s theme! Go be inspired and have a fun weekend then meet us back here next week as we wrap up our Christmas inspiration from the July 2015 catalog.
If you are the person that believes that the “reason for the season” is not about fighting to buy that item that is sold out everywhere, that it’s not about piles of presents under the tree, and that it’s not about how many parties you get invited to, but rather about celebrating the birth of the son of God…than this has to be the best week on the Stampendous blog for you! You’ve noticed by now that the Dreamweaver stencils, as well as the Stampendous line of images, provides many inspirational designs to touch your heart and those of your loved ones. Here’s just a few from the Dreamweaver line…
Our wonderful team have more inspirational inspiration (and yes, that was deliberate!) for you on their blogs…
We have some great stamp images to share today as we move through the week of our Child Is Born theme. First up are these two sweet onlookers towards Bethlehem as the star shines brightly in the sky. What a sweet night scene that is colored so beautifully by Alison Heikkila.
Another city scape stamp for today is this beautiful silhouette of the city of Jesus’ birth. Easy to emboss or stamp and go for a quick make of greeting cards.
Laura Drahozal created this sweet card that was shared last week for our House-Mouse theme, but take a look at the great text background! Even as a backup to the Joyful Noise of mouse and bird, these sentiments shine on their own.
If you enjoyed our stamps today, you’ll be in for a treat with these designer projects –
