Paisley for All!

Peacock and Paisley

We have two great stamp sets with coordinating dies to share this week. On Monday we met our Poised Peacock and our Paisley Patterns. Both Cling Rubber Stamp Sets come with a free template for masking the images or creating super cool backgrounds. Both also have available, matching, cutting dies! You’ll love these gorgeous sets! (and Free Shipping with Promo Code BLG717 on orders over $50)

On Wednesday we took a closer look at our Poised Peacock. So today, let’s investigate our Paisley Patterns set a little more closely! This awesome set includes six stamps. Five are very definite elements and they have corresponding cutting dies in the die set. The sixth stamp is a wonderful background that is delightful colored in, tone on tone, or even used as a resist pattern. The included stencil/mask set for the five elements is perfect for masking/layering or for coloring them in with stencil brushes, sponges, paint, or other methods.

Fran has created a great video sharing her samples with these fun stamp images:

Peacocks Galore

Peacock and Paisley

We’re sharing two great new Cling Rubber Stamp Sets with Matching Cutting Dies this week. We met our Poised Peacock and our Paisley Patterns on Monday . 

Both Cling Rubber Stamp Sets come with a free template for masking the images or creating super cool backgrounds. You’ll love these gorgeous sets! Today, let’s look closer at our Poised Peacock.

The set has four stamps and a stencil that makes a great peacock feather background. The matching cutting dies cut right on the edge, with even the peacock feet cutting out perfectly. We evened the dies out around the edges of the feathers, so a little coloring “outside the lines” will produce easy-to-cut feathers that look amazing.

 

Fran has made a wonderful video sharing her samples with this great stamp set and dies.

Gone to the Dogs (and Cats!)

At Stampendous we love our pets, and dog and cat stamps work their way into our releases frequently. Our April Catalog release was no exception, let us introduce you to our newest takes on man’s best friend, and cats, too!

Laurel Burch was extremely fond of both dogs and cats, and she drew them prolifically. We’ve added several of those images as stamps, so you can do the same thing.

The Dog Park Cling Rubber Set with its coordinating cutting dies is so sweet, and the ability to cut them out so easily provides tons of options for great projects. And one lucky winner can receive these two products by commenting on our blog posts this week. Each comment is an entry, so leave us some love! Tell us about your pets in a comment or two!  We’ll take comments all week through Sunday and announce a winner on Monday.  Official Rules

You’ll love some of the darling samples that Fran created for our April Catalog.

These projects are available on our website by searching Dog Park. We’ll share some more of her whimsical samples later in the week.

Our January and April Catalogs also included some great cat/dog images mounted on your choice of wood handles or Stampendous Cling rubber. Here’s a look a the latest offerings – YOU CAN FIND THEM ALL HERE:

We’ll be sharing lots of inspiration over on our Instagram Feed this week. Plus you can find projects featuring all of these stamps on our website projects section. Just click HERE and search Laurel Burch.

For today, we’ve got some fun inspiration from a couple of our Design Team Members! Be sure to leave them some love as well!  See you Friday!

Part of Your World 1: Mermaids and More

We’ve been sharing some fun with mermaids this week! Stampendous is lucky to be licensing the wonderful artwork of Laurel Burch, and we were especially excited to add her Mermaid Fishes Cling Rubber Stamp Set and Cutting Dies to our lineup this April. (Check out our whole April Catalog HERE)

We have so much inspiration to share with you using this wonderful stamp set! Check out all the ideas below. Feel free to click on any of the images to see it larger.

 

Still more exciting is this gorgeous sample that Fran Seiford, Stampendous Owner and Founder, made with her fun and dynamic Encrusted Adhesive Technique!

 

This gorgeous card looks so lush and complex, but it’s so super-easy to make! Just cut your cardstock, stamp, color and die cut your mermaid and her fish friends, then grab a panel of your favorite double-sided adhesive sheets. We carry two kinds, Sticky Panels and the Dreamweaver Double-Sided Mounting Paper. Place your panel down on your cardstock. Peel off the protective sheet, and place your die cut images. Then fill in the space with color fragments, glitters, and the embossing powders/enamels of your choice. Heat to set, and MAGIC!  Want to see it in action? Check out the video below.
