Trees! and Winners!

Trees banner

Here at Stampendous some of the most popular images are those of flora! We have so many flowers and trees and other garden elements, and they are all really popular with our fans. This week we thought we’d take a look at the trees of Stampendous. Christmas Trees, Haunted Trees, Garden Trees, Spring Trees, Stencil Trees, Whimsical Trees… as one designer said, “We could do a whole month!”

Scenic stamping has been popular for decades, and with all of today’s coloring options, it’s more popular than ever. Fran always tries to design our trees so that no masking will be needed for you to work it into your scenic stamping. We hope you’ll enjoy this little walk in the woods! Do let us know how you feel about trees!

Let’s start by sharing with you some of the Christmas Tree Stamps we have. That season is still sneaking up on all of us… sneak… sneak… have you been naughty or nice? We’ll start with the tree!

 

Let’s see what our Design Team has for us today! Trees!!

Plus we have

WINNERS

from last week’s Get Your “Boo” on giveaway.  Thanks everyone for counting up our colored words. Purple was a bit problematic since many of your browsers show the design team links in purple after you’ve viewed them. So your Purple count could have been anywhere from 6 t0 41. We really meant just the spooky words, so we’re not going to let that influence us. We threw everyone in the drawing that bothered to give us some numbers. Our three US winners are:

 

Beckie Williams

Tracey Magner

Barb MacAskill

 

Congratulations, Winners!!  Email us at submissions@stampendous.com with your mailing address, and we’ll get your Birds and Bones right out to you!

Elements of Excitement!

Pinecone Ornament by Kristine Reynolds

This week we’re celebrating those cool Elements that make our holiday cards so exciting. And we’re offering a special shout out to our newest family favorite, Twinkle Glitter!

Fran’s Glitzy Adhesive Technique and Encrusted Adhesive Technique are perfect for making a glittering area of bling behind any focal point layer. They’re super easy to do! Just apply a layer of our Sticky Panels, adhere your focal point on the adhesive area, then sprinkle your favorite blings on the remaining, exposed adhesive… Voila!! If you use embossing powder, you’ll want to heat it, but you can mix embossing enamels, glitters, mica, color fragments, glass glitter and more for some ultimate excitement.  There are sooo many looks you can achieve!

 

As you can see, the Design Team has lots to share with you today!! Click below to see more of their great projects, some of them have more than one, because they posted on Wednesday as well! Leave everyone some love so we can enter you in the drawing to win a jar of Twinkle Glitter. (contest details are HERE from Monday).  AND, in case this doesn’t give you enough to work on this weekend, here are some videos of Fran demonstrating this incredibly fun and easy technique.

Elements of Excitement – and A Winner!

Pinecone Ornament by Kristine Reynolds

The time for Holiday stamping is here! And this year, why not add some Elements of Excitement to your Christmas and holiday creations? Our July Catalog featured a really nice, two-page spread showcasing the Embossing Powders and Glitters that are just so perfect for seasonal glimmer and warmth.

You can see the whole catalog here – JULY 2017 Stampendous Catalog  or for a look at our Elements suggestions, we’ve made a quick PDF you can download here: Elements of Excitement

These sparkly and super dynamic elements are perfect for Fran’s Encrusted Adhesive Technique and Glitzy Adhesive Technique. Both of these techniques allow you to make dynamic cards with a ton of bling and excitement! A perfect example is this great card by Design Team Member Kristine Reynolds. You can click on it to see the project instructions and supplies.

This great card also features one of our brand new elements, Twinkle Glitter! This super cool glitter is ultra shiny and full of random shapes, so the light just bounces off of it in every direction. So lush and fantastic!

Homemade Gifts Are Best

The holiday season is approaching, and it’s time to give some thought to gifts you might make for friends and loved ones. Of course nothing says, “I love you” like a handmade gift.

With stamps and stencils, you have soooo many options. And our new Decor Cling Rubber Stamps make a super easy way to transfer a pattern to a home decor piece. They are big, at 8″ X 8″ they can help you get a job done quickly, or even work on a very small card or tag, or stamp a few at one time.

Here’s a look at the Decor Snowflakes stamp. There are four other designs available.

Snowflake Decor Cling Rubber Sneak Peek

Our Dreamweaver and Fran’s Metal Stencils are also a phenomenal way to create homemade gifts from the heart.  Like this gorgeous canvas from Mixed Media Artist Mark Gould.

A few great designers are sharing some fun ideas to get you started:

Louise Healy

Bunny Hoyle

Christmas in July with BoBunny Background Papers – And A Winner!

Christmas In July Banner

 

We were super blessed for our holiday catalog to be able to play with some of these gorgeous Bo Bunny background papers. They are the perfect palette to coordinate with the Laurel Burch Color Palette, and Bo Bunny was so generous to us and donated enough papers for us to make our in-house cards, supply some to our Design Team, and maybe even have a few sheets to give away!! 😉

The Vintage Dot line of papers is just so gorgeous! There are lovely yellow/gold dots on one side with a “distressing” of color variation, drips, scratches, and just so much visual texture. The reverse side has a gorgeous damask, tone-on-tone pattern with striking distressing used all over. It’s thick, it’s textured, it’s beautiful quality! The colors are just yummy! This is one of those papers that you hate to choose which side to use, because it means the other side gets glued down to your project.

Bo Bunny Vintage Dot Papers

We loved using these in-house for our holiday catalog, we’ve included them on several of our store display board programs, and our Design Team loved them, too! And now, you get a chance to love them as well! We’ll have three winners this week who each receive a package of 10 sheets of BoBunny Vintage Dot Patterned Paper (one each of 10 colors), plus either our brand new Laurel Burch Cling Holly Cat or Cling Holly Pup stamp, winners choice!
