Of course a week of blessings wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t thank YOU, our customers and fans for a wonderful 36+ years of making art and creating connections. We know you understand our goals of helping people enrich the lives of friends and family with handmade cards and gifts, and we also know you love having a hobby that brings you joy and satisfaction! Thank you so much for your loyalty over the last 36 years, and for helping to make us one of the most blessed companies on Earth!
Take a look today at the work of our wonderful design team! They want to thank you, too. Without our customers and fans, there would be no point in what we do! Leave them some love on their blogs today!
While things are still spooking away over on our 31 Days of Halloween page, we are ready to give thanks this month for all the wonderful blessings in our lives. American Thanksgiving is such an awesome holiday, because it’s so important to live with an “attitude of gratitude” and appreciate all the wonderful things we have every day. We like to focus on our blessings, here at Stampendous, and we know you do, too!
Our banner this week features those adorable meeces. Stuffing themselves with that favorite of all deserts, pumpkin pie! To win a stamp of these adorable mice, tell us how you like your pumpkin pie… whipped cream or no? whipped pie or no? warm? cold? or just no?! We’ll choose three winners on Friday from our blog comments all week! Remember, U.S. mailing addresses only (yes, territories count) and our Official Rules all live here – Official Rules
Our team will be sharing all week, but here are some samples from last year that feature this adorable stamp:
Sharing today from the Stampendous Design Team… go leave some love for :
Here’s a quick break from all the holidays! We thought we’d share a lovely, everyday stamp with you today, our beautiful Rose Postcard. This stamp is just wonderful because you can just stamp it, and your background and focal point are already done for you. You can add a little color, you can color it very intricately. It’s so versatile! It’s available in wood mounted or Stampendous Cling Rubber.
We had such a variety of lovely samples made with this product. We wanted to share them with you today. Some of our team shared this earlier, so we’ve just compiled all their posts here for you.
We are really excited for the gorgeous new stamps in our October Catalog. They go on sale on our website on Friday.
Here’s a peek at the cover featuring our new Rose Garden Cling Stamps and Matching Die Set. You can click on it to take a peek inside!
The easiest way to find them on the web is choosing What’s New on www.stampendous.com. It’s at the top right under our logo! (you can click on the picture below)(but not until Friday unless you’re a wholesale customer.)
The What’s New pages are full of Halloween, Christmas, and Winter – that is what folks are shopping right now. The new October/Spring products will be at the END of the What’s New Products, so scroll to the bottom.
and choose the highest number page like the ones seen above. You can work backwards to enjoy all the newest goodness!!
Another easy way to shop is our Quick Order Form. It’s in the upper right corner. (you can click the picture to go straight there!)
Enter the number or part of the name in our Quick Order Form, click on your item, and choose Add to Order
You can go straight to checkout from there, or keep shopping the normal way with the tabs at the top. We super love this fast shopping feature! If you order the same things frequently, take a screen shot of your order form before choosing checkout for an easy reference.
And, of course, you know that our website orders are filled by local stamping, scrapbooking, and craft stores, so you support local businesses when you shop with us.
Our wonderful Design Team is sharing some new favorites today to help you choose how you’d like to put some Spring in your Stamp! Check them out and leave them some love!!
Now that the chill is hitting the air, and thoughts lovingly turn to Pumpkin Spiced everything, we’re here to give you a sneak peek forward to Spring. Your local stores are stocking their shelves with our new Spring merchandise, and the Stampendous October 2017 Catalog goes live on our website on Friday for all retail customers.
Next week we’ll start our 31 Days of Halloween posts and continue with our Fall, Christmas, and Winter projects and inspiration, but for those of you who plan and craft ahead… Spring has Sprung!
We have lots of favorite products in this new catalog, but our favorite of all is our new Spring Borders Cutting Dies. Our Design Team loved them so much, you’ll see them on almost every inspiring project. (remember, the links won’t work until after Friday!)
These six border dies have you covered for Valentine’s Day, Spring, Mother’s Day, Weddings, Baby Cards, and more! The flower border on the yellow background is perfect for threading a ribbon through, or a strip of patterned paper! The edger on the right with the pink background lines up perfectly with the fancy purple edger to let you make a double edge!
Here are some fun sample borders we cooked up when we were trying them. You can certainly see how fun they’re going to be!
Here are just a few of the great samples our team made with them! You’ll see these again later, plus they’re all being loaded to our website with full supply lists and instructions! We bet you can see how “must-have” these border dies are will be! You might want to call your local store now and tell them you’ll need these.
Some of the Design Team are sharing their favorite Sneak Peeks this week, too! We can’t wait for you see all our new Spring Goodness!
We love our terrific trees here at Stampendous! On MONDAY we took a look at Christmas Trees. Today let’s take a look at the Halloween and Fall side of things! Trees are so great for every season! The team has more Christmas trees for you at the bottom of this post. The wood stamps below are also available in Cling Rubber!
Some Autumn Options:
Of course we have a beautiful array of Fall/Tree/Leaf Stencils as well! You can check them all out HERE.
And, naturally, those darling mice from House-Mouse Designs® are hanging out in the trees as well!
Let’s see what our Design Team has for us today! Trees!!
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.
