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.

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

Papermaking Palooza

Arnold Grummer Blog Hop Banner

Our team is having fun this week, making handmade paper with kits by Arnold Grummer’s. This is a new activity for some of our team members, and getting a little messy has been really, really fun. 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! (click on her name or the picture!)

Blog Hop with Arnold Grummer

Arnold Grummer Blog Hop Banner

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!

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!
