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.

Part of Your World 1: Mermaids and Friends

Mermaids are really hot right now! You see them everywhere you shop. We’re lucky enough to have some of the coolest mermaids in town.

In addition to the wonderful Mermaid Fishes Set from artist Laurel Burch that we introduced Monday, we still have our awesome Mermaid Friends set.

CRS5088 Mermaids Cling Stamp Set and DCS5088 Mermaids Die Set

Like most of our Cling Rubber Stamp Sets with coordinating Cutting Dies, this is a Limited Edition.  If you’ve been waiting to add this gorgeous mermaid, staring into a beautiful pearl, surrounded by her fun, eager friends, to your collection, you might not want to wait much longer. Take a look at just some of the great inspiration using this wonderful set. You can see that all the pieces work seamlessly together, and they all shine separately as well! (And they all look amazing with those Graphic45 papers! Thanks G45!) You can click on an image to see it full sized.

 

Loving our Mermaid and Friends??? We sure do! Take a moment or two to watch Fran make some of these gorgeous cards!

New Pop Up Stages and Spring Tweets!

maxresdefault

Our new Pop Up Die Set is setting the stage for some exciting pop ups in columns and platforms! Use Pop Up Stages with any type of stamped and die cut or hand trimmed shapes like images from Family Home, Pretty Poppies, and Spring Tweets stamp sets.

Pop Up Stages dies are so versatile as separate pieces you can use a single column die to make a flower bouquet pop off the background as on Debi Hammons beautiful card here.

Pretty Poppies Pop Up by Debi Hammons

Using two or more column dies will create varying depths for a fun scene. Add the tab die anywhere for a popping greeting!

Wonderful Winter Snowflakes and Friends

winter-friends-title

Today we are letting you in on a little-known secret about our Cling Rubber Stamp Sets. Look for an orange triangle in the upper right corner of the packaging and you will find a free template inside! Yep, the template complements the stamp set amazingly and our Winter Friends are complete with a snowflake stencil.

Here are two projects shared earlier this week that took advantage of the template and created a great backdrop for the Winter Friend characters.

Winter Friends by Janelle Stollfus

There are so many great snowflakes in the template you may think we have it covered, but there is a flurry of options on our website in our Dreamweaver Stencils and Fran’s Metal Stencils that are terrific for all your winter projects! Be sure to visit our website to see projects using them, there is a project waiting for you to try!

This penguin is donning a top hat for the holidays, a simple gesture for the splendor of the season as we end our week with Winter Friends.
