Can’t See the Stamps for the Trees!

Trees banner

We have a veritable forest of tree images here at Stampendous! They are among our most popular choices. Trees make great cards for men and guys, always a challenge, and they just lend themselves to any occasion or greeting! We looked at Christmas Trees on MONDAY and Halloween and Fall options on WEDNESDAY. Today we’re going to take a gander at some of our “everyday” trees for those cards you need all year.

Our wonderful Design Team is back today with trees, trees, trees! Enjoy!

Trees! and Winners!

Trees banner

Here at Stampendous some of the most popular images are those of flora! We have so many flowers and trees and other garden elements, and they are all really popular with our fans. This week we thought we’d take a look at the trees of Stampendous. Christmas Trees, Haunted Trees, Garden Trees, Spring Trees, Stencil Trees, Whimsical Trees… as one designer said, “We could do a whole month!”

Scenic stamping has been popular for decades, and with all of today’s coloring options, it’s more popular than ever. Fran always tries to design our trees so that no masking will be needed for you to work it into your scenic stamping. We hope you’ll enjoy this little walk in the woods! Do let us know how you feel about trees!

Let’s start by sharing with you some of the Christmas Tree Stamps we have. That season is still sneaking up on all of us… sneak… sneak… have you been naughty or nice? We’ll start with the tree!

 

Let’s see what our Design Team has for us today! Trees!!

Plus we have

WINNERS

from last week’s Get Your “Boo” on giveaway.  Thanks everyone for counting up our colored words. Purple was a bit problematic since many of your browsers show the design team links in purple after you’ve viewed them. So your Purple count could have been anywhere from 6 t0 41. We really meant just the spooky words, so we’re not going to let that influence us. We threw everyone in the drawing that bothered to give us some numbers. Our three US winners are:

 

Beckie Williams

Tracey Magner

Barb MacAskill

 

Congratulations, Winners!!  Email us at submissions@stampendous.com with your mailing address, and we’ll get your Birds and Bones right out to you!

Elements of Excitement!

Pinecone Ornament by Kristine Reynolds

This week we’re celebrating those cool Elements that make our holiday cards so exciting. And we’re offering a special shout out to our newest family favorite, Twinkle Glitter!

Fran’s Glitzy Adhesive Technique and Encrusted Adhesive Technique are perfect for making a glittering area of bling behind any focal point layer. They’re super easy to do! Just apply a layer of our Sticky Panels, adhere your focal point on the adhesive area, then sprinkle your favorite blings on the remaining, exposed adhesive… Voila!! If you use embossing powder, you’ll want to heat it, but you can mix embossing enamels, glitters, mica, color fragments, glass glitter and more for some ultimate excitement.  There are sooo many looks you can achieve!

 

As you can see, the Design Team has lots to share with you today!! Click below to see more of their great projects, some of them have more than one, because they posted on Wednesday as well! Leave everyone some love so we can enter you in the drawing to win a jar of Twinkle Glitter. (contest details are HERE from Monday).  AND, in case this doesn’t give you enough to work on this weekend, here are some videos of Fran demonstrating this incredibly fun and easy technique.

Here at Stampendous, our Summers have often culminated in a Warehouse Sale! We haven’t done one in a very long time, and I’m NOT making any promises here (wink, wink), but if you’re anywhere near Southern California, you might want to just make sure that you’re on our email list. Just say’n!  Our previous Warehouse Sales have been, shall we say legendary?! You definitely won’t want to miss it (if we have one, that is)! Our email newsletter also gives you great info like telling you first about our Free Shipping promotion. Even if you can’t come to Southern California, you’ll want to sign up. You can sign up for newsletters and promotion information here at the bottom of our website home page – http://www.stampendous.com/.

We’ve got some great Summer Vacation projects and inspiration from our Design Team today. Please comment on their posts, and be sure to tell us about your favorite Summer Vacation for a chance to win. We’ll be back with Winners and a new theme on Monday!

BoBunny Vintage Dot – Christmas in July

Christmas In July Banner

 

Our holiday catalog is loaded with gorgeous Bo Bunny background papers. They’re the perfect shades for our Laurel Burch Color Palette, and Bo Bunny donated enough papers for us to make our in-house cards, supply some to our Design Team, and even have some to give away!!

The Vintage Dot line of papers is yummy! With dots on one side and a damask pattern on the other with distressing used all over,  this thick, textured, quality paper is great to use! We loved working with Vintage Dot, and so will you.

Bo Bunny Vintage Dot Papers

We used these for our holiday catalog, on our store display board programs, and our Design Team loved them, too! We also used them for several of the cards in our April catalog, celebrating all things summer!

Here are some of the cards we made in-house, you can find these on our website at http://www.stampendous.com.

Now, you have a chance to try them. Three winners this week will each receive 10 sheets of BoBunny Vintage Dot Patterned Paper (one each of 10 colors), plus choose our brand new Laurel Burch Cling Holly Cat or Cling Holly Pup stamp!

Christmas in July with BoBunny Vintage Dot Paper

The Vintage Dot line of papers is yummy! There are lovely dots on one side with a “distressing” of color variation, drips, scratches, and visual texture. The reverse side has a damask, pattern with more distressing used all over. It’s thick, it’s textured, it’s beautiful quality! The colors are perfect! You will love working with this paper.

Christmas in July with BoBunny Background Papers – And A Winner!

Christmas In July Banner

 

We were super blessed for our holiday catalog to be able to play with some of these gorgeous Bo Bunny background papers. They are the perfect palette to coordinate with the Laurel Burch Color Palette, and Bo Bunny was so generous to us and donated enough papers for us to make our in-house cards, supply some to our Design Team, and maybe even have a few sheets to give away!! 😉

The Vintage Dot line of papers is just so gorgeous! There are lovely yellow/gold dots on one side with a “distressing” of color variation, drips, scratches, and just so much visual texture. The reverse side has a gorgeous damask, tone-on-tone pattern with striking distressing used all over. It’s thick, it’s textured, it’s beautiful quality! The colors are just yummy! This is one of those papers that you hate to choose which side to use, because it means the other side gets glued down to your project.

Bo Bunny Vintage Dot Papers

We loved using these in-house for our holiday catalog, we’ve included them on several of our store display board programs, and our Design Team loved them, too! And now, you get a chance to love them as well! We’ll have three winners this week who each receive a package of 10 sheets of BoBunny Vintage Dot Patterned Paper (one each of 10 colors), plus either our brand new Laurel Burch Cling Holly Cat or Cling Holly Pup stamp, winners choice! Oooh… that’s some Christmas Card stamping in the bag!  Just leave us a comment telling us whether you’d choose the Cat or the Pup and which three are your favorite colors from the Vintage Dot Papers line!
