Jungle Fun with Copic Markers

In our recent April Release we had a great time with our new Jungle themed products! Fran made tons of WindowRama cards and dioramas using all of the great dies in those sets. You can see lots of her projects in videos on our YouTube Channel.

In many of those projects you’ll see delightful, little, mini-backgrounds that Fran made with Copic Markers. We thought you’d like to see how she put those together.

Here’s a video where she shows you how, and you can see how we incorporated them in to our fun Jungle Series cards.

Fishy Fun!

The Stampendous April Catalog is full of darling Summer fun for everyone. Especially those who love the sea! With undersea Cling Rubber Stamp sets and Perfectly Clear Stamps, we’re brimming with fun from the briny deep.

Our sweet Fishy Fun Perfectly Clear Stamps are a cute and creative way to send a summer greeting or an invitation for some beachy keen fun!

We also brought out four darling Cling Rubber Stamp sets in our ocean theme this year.

These four sets, which retail for only $8.99 each, have two greetings and a complete scene for easy, quick cards. Debi created a darling group of cards using these sets, plus we’ll be sharing more projects featuring them in some top stamping publications later this year.

Our Design Team have also been sharing with our super fun Summer sets. Take a look at their cute contributions. Which set is your fave?

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!

Some Like it Wild!

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 were very excited at Christmas time when our new QSets of Cling Rubber and Cutting Dies were so well-received! These sweet little stamp sets have humorous and whimsical images and sentiments that make creating cards, tags, boxes, and bags easy and fun. The coordinating cutting dies leave a cute, small white border around the images to mimic children’s stickers.

New, everyday designs are here with images stamps for Spring, Summer, friends and fun. We know you’ll have small (and not-so-small) folks somewhere in your life who will love your projects made with these sweet characters!

Old Goat WindowRama

QSets are a bit different. The image is shown on the carrier sheet instead of on top of the stamp. But they’re super easy to store in your regular, slim storage. Our Thin Stuftainers are the ideal storage containers for these great sets. They also all fit into the WindowRama die set and look great romping through the Meadows Edge. You’ll love how these sets coordinate with just everything!
