It’s That Spooky Time of Year!

clear stamps for Halloween

It’s that fun time of year when our Halloween stamps are haunting our sleep with project ideas galore. We love seeing what folks make with our images, and we just can’t stop stamping these creepy/cool images and coloring them in then putting them on cards, home decor, or other fun projects.

We hope you’ll share any projects you make this season with us! We have a Stampendous Fans Facebook Group where folks share their creations and get to tell each other how fun they are! Here’s a link to join! https://www.facebook.com/groups/Stampendous/

Here’s a fun project Fran created using our Beware Witch Cling Set and our new  WindowRama Chipboard kit.

Jungle Series – Lion

Totally Wild Banner

Everyone has enjoyed our Jungle Series so much, and here’s the last of the new Cling Stamp and Cutting Die sets, the Lion. King of the Jungle, proudest of the beasts, able to bobble his head and the heads of others!

He makes a delightful WindowRama card, and comes with his own window for the WindowRama Die Set, just like the others. You’ll love his sweet face, and all the possibilities. Here’s a video from Fran showing this fun set.

 

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.

Copic Marker backgrounds for Jungle Series Cards

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

Totally Wild

Stampendous’ new wild collection from our brand new April 2019 catalog will have you running through the jungle, swinging from the trees, and loping across the savannah with a great new crew of animal friends.

The adorable Lion comes with a fun, fern, circle window die for your WindowRama or other card types. It also includes a separate die for cutting out the lion’s face, and a bobble head die to make his face wobble on a cardstock spring. You can use this wobbler on any of our new animal friends. You’ll love playing with this fantastic set. Of course it comes with the lion stamp and cutting die, some wild grass, and a cute greeting! A complete set!

Everyday QSets! Funny and Fun!

QSets and Cutting Dies Banner

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.

No Probllama card

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!

Meadows Edge Puppy Boy

Fran made a great video sharing these fun sets and their coordinating die sets. Check it out here:

And, of course, our Design Team have had some great fun with these wonderful sets! Hop around and see their projects and leave a comment, you might win your favorite set of stamps and matching dies. We’ll give away three sets to U.S. Mailing Addresses. The Official Rules for our contests are always here.
