Curios are Here!

Curios Banner

We’re in love with our new Curios stamps and their whimsical, colorful presence in our office and our craft area! They not only make us smile with their fun shapes and colors, they inspire us with card and project ideas all day! By the end of the day we’re brimming with great ideas for using them when we get home. It’s been a very fun experience. These little pops of home decor with their premium quality stamps on the back are just delightful.

Here’s a closeup look at a few more of these darling stamps:

Spring Borders Dies – WINNERS!

Spring Borders Die set

Last week we had so much fun with our Spring Borders Dies, and you’ll want to keep watching for them in the future since our team used them on so very many samples!

We have some winners from last week! If you winners will send an email to submissions@stampendous.com and send us your U.S. Mailing address, we’ll get these darling dies out to you immediately! Thank you for your kind comments! They mean a lot to us.

Samantha Houp from Janelle’s blog

Jeanne Beam from Louise’s blog

Tracy Magner from Jamie’s blog

Just a reminder to everyone. If we draw your name as a winner, but have no way to confirm that you live in the U.S., we draw another name. You need to make sure that some profile for you somewhere tells that you have a U.S. address. Even if you just write United States for your address online. We do try hard to verify, but this week we had to replace some winners who had no data available.

Spring Borders Die Set – Part II

Spring Borders Die set

We’re in love with our Spring Borders Die set! If you missed the Monday post, be sure to check it out here! MONDAY

We’re continuing today with an in-depth look at two more of the dies in this set!

The first one is the darling heart cut-out die! This die is designed to cut a “window” in your card’s 5-1/4″ X 4″ or larger, layer. It allows for paper piecing or a lovely peek at the inside of the card. Cutting it out also provides you with lots of little hearts you can use as confetti in your card.

The next die is the Ribbon Threader Die. These darling daisies just beg for a ribbon, twine, or strip of patterned paper to be threaded through their little holes. Such a cute way to add ribbon to a card or project!

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!

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.

Fantastic Backgrounds in Just 6 Inches!

6X6 Cling Rubber

 

You will be so in love with these super versatile stamps! Our 6″ X 6″ Cling Rubber stamps are just a bit smaller than our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Rubber stamps. Both are fantastic for creating backgrounds on Decorative Painting projects, art journals, home decor, cards, and so much more. Use just a small area, or tile the whole image over a large area. Use paint, ink, or any other media that works on rubber stamps. Plus, with our square Perfectly Clear Handles, sized just for these stamps, you can get a crisp, sharp image every time!

Both Snowman Wishes and Poinsettia Wishes contain a ton of awesome greetings you’ll use every year, plus a great border stamp that makes your card “one-and-done” easy.
