Love is in the Air

Valentine banner

We’re celebrating LOVE with the rest of the world this week! Valentine’s Day is Wednesday, February 14, and we have so many wonderful images for celebrating! Our Design Team sends their love this week by creating gorgeous projects with our love-ly images. You can always find any of our love images in the Stamps/Valentines Category on our website. You can visit it by clicking on that link or on the banner above.

You can see by our banner that some of our most loving images feature the irrepressible House-Mouse Family! These little mice are always showering one another with love, just like in the image above called Glitter Hearts! In fact, some of the wonderful design team from the House-Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog  (or if you’re need of a steady stream of sweet mice, visit them on Facebook) will be joining us this week to share their Valentine greetings with all of you. Let’s start with them:

Bunny Hoyle

Christine Craig

Lorraine Aquilina

Sue Drees

And we thought we’d share the Valentine work of the recent winners on the HMFMCB –

Are You Curious about Curios??

Stampendous Curio Rubber Stamps

We’re thrilled to share with you this week our newest product line, Curios rubber stamps. These sweet stamps feature the same wonderful, gray, graphic rubber that our regular stamps use, but their mounts are delightful, full-color, three-dimensional wood blocks that make decor as fun as the projects they stamp. Show off your Curios on your workspace, in your craft room, on your desk at work, or anywhere you need a touch of fun and color.

Let’s take a look at two of them today:

 

This week our Design Team will be sharing with you how cute and fun these darling stamps can be, as decor or as practical stamping tools!

Start by welcoming our newest Design Team Member – (we love her style, we know you will, too!!)

Texture is Here to Stay!

Texture Cubes Banner

Our terrific Texture Cubes have been a long tradition here at Stampendous. We’re so excited to be adding two new texture cubes to the current selection.

  • Each cube has four sides (the Marble has 3) that can be tiled and extended to cover a large area with dynamic background.
  • They feel great in your hands as you work
  • They give you lots of options for adding texture and depth to your work.
  • And they’re super easy to clean, so use them with paint, ink, anything you like!

Here’s a look at all of our cubes!

TC01 Marble Texture Cube – the three sides layer to make realistic looking marble

Look how cool the marble looks! You stamp the darkest one in the lightest color, then proceed to the medium one in a lighter color, then the veins are dynamic and awesome in gold, black, or many other colors!

Foliate Quad Cube

TC51 Foliate Quad Cube gives you four great foliage backgrounds.

Tiled Quad Cube

6X6 is All You Need

6X6 Cling Rubber

You’ll love our brand new 6″ X 6″ Cling Rubber stamps for making a Stampendous impression every time! These wonderful backgrounds are so versatile, you can easily line them up side to side for making very large projects, or you can use just a small part of them for smaller projects. They’re made of the same great rubber and cling foam that our other stamps use, so you know you’ll get crisp, clear results. Try them with paint, ink, or other media!

Our Design Team used them on a huge variety of projects this week for lots of inspiration. Leave comments here and on our Design Team blogs for a chance to win your favorite, we’ll give 3 away. (official rules always here)

Here they are! You can click on them to be taken to the stamp on our website.
