It’s time for the annual Cat Lovers Blog Hop hosted over at Her Peaceful Garden. This is the fifth anniversary for this fun blog hop. Stampendous always really enjoys participating in this one, because we are huge cat lovers here! (Although we’ve got lots of dog folks as well!) At that link you can link your projects to win some great prizes. Today is the second day, and you can see more about our participation on today’s link which is Her Peaceful Garden – Day 2.
Some great stamps being featured this week, and being offered as prizes, come from our Laurel Burch images. The wonderful Feline Blooms and Indigo Cat sets with their coordinating Dies Sets are up for grabs over at Her Peaceful Garden. And there are even some individual stamps available as flash prizes! All of the Laurel Burch cats can be seen on our website by clicking HERE. They are super fun to color and make whimsical, friendly cards, decor, and more!
Our design team has been coloring some of our other kitties, too! Check them out below!
We’re super excited today because Vicky Papaioannou is stamping with Stampendous. And, of course, it is just WOW! Check out her great video using our new Fucshia Trio Cling Stamps and Cutting Dies here –
You can see the complete supply list for her project in her video description, and the project is featured on her blog here – Clips and Cuts
We know you’ll love these gorgeous flowers, and this project is just gorgeous! We’re always so happy when Vicky shares with Stampendous!

We’ve got some fun kitties in our holiday collection at the moment. We’d love to share with you some great projects made by Fran for our July catalog. We are celebrating the Laurel Burch cats of Stampendous for this particular event.
We were very excited to add to our collection of Laurel Burch images in our April Catalog. These whimsical images which lend to bright, beautiful colors just have us completely enchanted. We’ll look this week at some of the new images and then a little later on in May at the rest of them. Remember that our Laurel Burch Coloring Guide is yours to download so that you can get the Laurel Burch look on your own projects.
First up is the beautiful Imagine Butterflies set! Five lovely butterflies with masks/stencil included plus a pair of antennae to share and the word “imagine,” can be paired with the matching Cutting Dies set to create an entire garden full of magical flutterings.
Our Design Team has been working hard to bring you some beautiful project inspiration, and we have some extra friends stamping along this week.
First up, with a gorgeous card you “can’t resist” (get it?, go look at the card), is the amazing:
We might add, that in confirming that our winners have U.S. mailing addresses (because you know you must), we checked out Dawn’s blog, much to our delight! Dawn has, apparently, had a long and illustrious career as a baby-wrangler for movies and television, and her blog is one of the most entertaining things we’ve stumbled upon in a long time! Check it out at Will Work for O’s!! Better get a beverage first, Dawn has enough fantastic stories to keep you busy for a long time!
Lucky Winners, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your U.S. mailing addresses and we’ll get your little trip to Paris out to you right away! Thanks for playing along with us!
The beauty of Paris is famed the world over. Walking her charming streets is the one place in Europe that looks exactly how you’ve always imagined it would look. Small sidewalk cafes, the stunning Tour d’Eiffel, the Champs Elysees! It’s all incredible and awe inspiring. What would you MOST like to see in the City of Lights? We’d love to hear about your favorite Paris memory or dream. We’re giving away three sets of this beautiful stamp set and matching cutting dies this week! If you missed the chance to comment on Monday, be sure to do so as well as today. Our Official Contest Rules are always HERE.
We sent our wonderful Paris Bonjour set and the matching dies to the amazing Vicky Papaioannou and she worked her magic, as usual. We just love how she combines products to create a stunning layout. We know you’ll love her little trip to Paris. She also included our new Paris Map 6″X6″ Background Stamp. It’s such a versatile background for any travel-themed creations. Please leave her some love! These gifted artists thrive on your positive comments!
Meanwhile, back home our Design Team has some wonderful things to share using the Paris set, and we have a terrific post from Sue Drees of the House-Mouse Design Team joining us! Be sure to leave some love for all of them!
Be sure to stop by and give them all some love and maybe win yourself a une peu de Paris.
And we will have some WINNERS from our wonderful commenters on our Autism Blog Hop/Everyday Chicks Week, last week! Winners will be announced Tuesday on Veronica’s blog and then Wednesday we’ll confirm them here, so stay tuned.
We’re sharing more of our Spring samples with you today! So much gorgeous inspiration! Our team has definitely done it again!
Our in-house team isn’t too shabby either! We are so lucky to have the super-talented Tammie Wilson working in our Sales Department. She’s an amazing Decorative Painter and she has created some beautiful projects for us. Some of them use our wonderful Spring products.
Take a look at her gorgeous Dutch Tulips box. It features our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Script stamp in the background. These great backgrounds are so wonderful for the painting crowd, they’re just loving them! It’s so easy to apply ink or acrylic paint to the stamp.
Isn’t it beautiful??!! Tammie was even kind enough to write out the directions for us so that we can add it as a project to our website. This was all done with acrylic paints, and her easy instructions make it so much more doable than you would guess. What a lovely gift to make for someone special!
Our team is sharing some wonderful projects this week as well. We know you’ll stop by their blogs and give them some love. And the fabulous Sue Drees from the House-Mouse and Friends Design Team has joined us as well with a wonderful project featuring theseDutch Tulips.
Spring is still in the Air at Stampendous! We have lots of great projects left to share with you!
We had so many beautiful, large flowers in our January Catalog, and Fran had so much fun making samples with them. We wanted to share with you some of her creations.
The Fresh Peony and the Coneflower both have wonderful masks/templates/stencil included for free in the package. They also each include a couple wonderful sentiments to make creating a card that much easier. Their matching dies make creating whole bouquets of wonderfulness that much simpler as well.
Here are a few of Fran’s great samples:
These samples are all on our website as well. Just head to http://www.stampendous.com and search for Fresh Peony or Coneflower in the search box at the top to see the products and projects featuring these stamps.
