We also sent papermaking kits to some of our “guest” bloggers we’ve worked with before. We’re super excited to share with you today what Tina Smith from Cards and Coffee Time made!

Blog Hop with Arnold Grummer

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!

The set includes the outer, base die which forms the front and back of the card, plus windows that can be combined or used separately to cut out the front of the card for a huge variety of looks. You can also use the windows to make dynamic flat cards and shakers! Fran has recorded a wonderful video to explain the basics of this great die set.

You can see lots of samples using this set on our website by clicking the picture above, and our design team has been playing with the dies all week. Their great samples are listed below. Be sure to leave them some love. We’ll give away three WindowRama Die Sets to lucky commenters on their blogs and ours with U.S. Mailing Addresses!

Cool Penguin! Hot Winners!

Cool Penguin Ugly Sweater Banner

Hello Everyone, we hope your Holidays were fantastic. We’ve been working hard to launch our new January Catalog (the biggest one of the year) and to get ready for the industry’s biggest trade show Creativation!

But we didn’t forget that we left our penguins in their ugly sweaters waiting on the edge of their icebergs to see who won the contest!

First, the poll for top sweater designer! We’re glad we made you vote, because we could never have chosen just one of these sweaters. The winner, with 25 of the 76 votes (whew) was clear – Diane Williams – Her Take 2 Ugly Sweaters was the champ (we suspect it was the reindeer sweater that did it) – Here’s her original blog post if you want to visit the winner –

Diane Williams

So, Diane, send us your wish list for $50 in Stampendous products (might want to check out the new catalog below or our website to make sure what you want is currently available). (email submissions@stampendous.com)

We also have three sets of Cool Penguin stamps and dies that will go to U.S. winners that commented on the various blogs from us and the participating designers. Here they are (also email to give us your mailing address!):

Donna Ellis (From Sue Drees #3)

Karen Ladd (From Tina Smith’s Video)

Bunny (From Diane Williams’ post)

And a quick reminder – we dug through a lot of profiles to verify our winners have a U.S. mailing address. Adding at least your country to your blogger/google+/facebook/instagram/flickr/youtube profile, and to your comments, etc., would greatly increase your chances of winning.

Thank you so much for commenting and playing with us. We had a great time. There are still plenty of Winter weeks left in “sweater weather”, and we have lots of Cool Penguins in stock. Of course, it’s never too early to plan your next Christmas card. If you haven’t had enough sweaters, we discovered that Karen Hasheck’s link in our last post was incorrect (although it was correct in the polling area). Go check hers out!

If you made it this far, check out the new January Catalog. You’ll be seeing a lot of it in the coming months. You can click on the picture to view as a flippy book on issuu.com, download as a pdf to your computer, or even print your own in color. You can order a hard copy for yourself on our website – HERE
