Pink Your Christmas – Wednesday

Pink Your Christmas Banner

We’re celebrating the darling Whisper Friends by Nicoletta Zanella for Pink Your Life.

Nicoletta herself made some adorable samples for our July Catalog this year. We just love her flair for bright, fun colors and happy scenes featuring these whimsical characters.

Check out her video sharing some Christmas creating with these wonderful stamps.

And look at this adorable tag tutorial! Nicoletta’s colors are always so vibrant and fun.

This charming project certainly bears sharing again. What a delightful gift this would make for someone:

Here, Nicoletta shares another great holiday tag idea –

 

Our Design team is sharing today, as well! Be sure to check out the blog posts for these delightful projects –

A Season of Thanks!

Season of Thanks banner

While things are still spooking away over on our 31 Days of Halloween page, we are ready to give thanks this month for all the wonderful blessings in our lives. American Thanksgiving is such an awesome holiday, because it’s so important to live with an “attitude of gratitude” and appreciate all the wonderful things we have every day. We like to focus on our blessings, here at Stampendous, and we know you do, too!

Our banner this week features those adorable meeces. Stuffing themselves with that favorite of all deserts, pumpkin pie! To win a stamp of these adorable mice, tell us how you like your pumpkin pie… whipped cream or no? whipped pie or no? warm? cold? or just no?! We’ll choose three winners on Friday from our blog comments all week! Remember, U.S. mailing addresses only (yes, territories count) and our Official Rules all live here – Official Rules

Our team will be sharing all week, but here are some samples from last year that feature this adorable stamp:

Sharing today from the Stampendous Design Team… go leave some love for :

It’s the 29th Day of Halloween!! Doomsday!!!

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

Halloween is almost here!  😀  And almost over! 😦

We’ve had so much fun this month, sharing our great Halloween products and projects with you.

We have a super special guest today! Candy Colwell shared this FANTASTIC project over on mixed media artist and stamp designer Andy Skinner’s blog the other day, and WOW… we had to contact her right away to ask if we could share here, too!

She showed us that she had even more fantastic projects, and now we’re just a little fangirl over her wonderful work. She’s been using the amazing Andy Skinner stamps, both new and previous, and it’s wonderful!

Take a look at her Doomsday Clock! (you can click on the pictures to be taken to the tutorial)

Candy was kind enough to point us to another fabulous piece of hers that she did for Andy Skinner’s Blog – (again, clicking the picture will take you to the tutorial).

This is The Bird Brain –

Rose Postcard

Here’s a quick break from all the holidays! We thought we’d share a lovely, everyday stamp with you today, our beautiful Rose Postcard. This stamp is just wonderful because you can just stamp it, and your background and focal point are already done for you. You can add a little color, you can color it very intricately. It’s so versatile! It’s available in wood mounted or Stampendous Cling Rubber.

Pink Your Christmas!

[If you’re looking for the 31 Days of Halloween, the links are all HERE]

The latest additions to our Pink Your Life Collection by Nicoletta Zanella are just the most adorable Christmas stamps! We love how cute the sets with coordinating dies are! Finally a great way to make scenes and pop ups so easy with these sweet images!

We’re going to share again with these images in November, but we wanted to showcase them because the Pink Your Life team has done some really fun videos with them. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to check them out! These whimsical characters are so fun to color, and they lend themselves to some pretty creative techniques.

Take a look:

Smiling in a Merry Little Christmas

[If you’re looking for our 31 Days of Halloween Post – It’s HERE with our participating Design Team inspiration and this week’s contest]

This time of year it’s so fun to sit around and wait for those first flurries of snow! The anticipation of building that first snowman of the year! What a fun time Winter can be!

Our Smiling Snowman Cling Rubber Stamp Set with matching dies is perfect for crafting yourself a little bit of cozy Winter fun!

Our own Fran Seiford also designed them to work perfectly with our Pop Up Stages Cutting Dies. And she’s made this adorable card to show us!

Smiling Snowman Pop Up By Fran Seiford

It’s so fun and frosty with the glitter on the scarves and gloves! Plus the little “doily” shape where the words go is made from one of the “edger” dies in our older Build a Pop Up Die Set.  Pop up cards like this are easy when you have helpful cutting dies to make it quickly. This adorable card also uses the charming trees in the Smiling Snowman set. And our Creative Palette makes the perfect Snowy Day background.
