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

Vickie Y

Christine Craig

Lorraine Aquilina

Sue Drees

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

You’re really going to love these sweet little gift ideas that are perfect for yourself, your space, or the other stampers in your life. They look so cute in your craft area, they feel so great in your hand, and they work with the dependable performance you expect from Stampendous! We know that our Curios are going to let you make a Stampendous impression every time!

We’re really excited to share that two of our new Curio Stamps feature the artwork of Laurel Burch! The Laurel Burch Dog and Cat are absolutely iconic images from her, and we’re thrilled that they are now little pieces of art. Let’s take a look at them (you can click on them to visit them on our website):

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:

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!!)

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 III

Spring Borders Die set

We’re moving to the final two dies in our Spring Borders Die Set today! This versatile set is just fantastic for your Spring Project Needs. And don’t worry, you’ll be seeing lots more of this great set as it becomes a Stampendous Classic! In case you missed our previous posts, see them here – MONDAYWEDNESDAY.  You’ll want to leave comments on our posts, and the posts of our Design Team to be eligible to win your own set of Spring Borders Dies! We’ll give away three sets this week and the Official Rules are Always HERE!

The next die from this awesome set is the fanciest of the group. It’s got such an elegant line, you’ll want it for all your flowers and other beautiful stamps. Notice that it only cuts along the top of this image for a lacy edging piece.

 

 

 

 

The final die is a Victorian style edge that works alone, or perfectly mimics the bottom edge of the previous die, allowing you to create a stunning edge piece. This gives you twice the duty from both of these versatile dies!

Our Design Team has one more round of cards to share with you today. Be sure to comment on their blogs for extra chances to win! And keep your eyes open as we continue to share with our newest images! You’ll see these great borders again and again in our inspiration! We know you’ll love them.

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!

Decor-ate to Your Heart’s Content!

6X6 Cling Rubber

Fran’s 6″ X 6″ Cling Rubber Stamps are just ideal for creating home decor in addition to cards and papercrafts. Along with our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Rubber, these stamps put a variety of creative backgrounds at your fingertips. And their acrylic handles make them easy to use with any media from paint to ink and beyond. We hope you’ll give them a try and share what you create with us. You can load your creations to our Facebook Group, or directly to our website! We love sharing your art.

The great thing about these images is how subtly they can add a bit of texture to a card. Look at this great sample by Kristine Reynolds. The yellow background card has been delicately enhanced through the use of our 6CR002 Crackle stamp! It’s really subtle, but adds so much to the worn feel of the card along with the embossing powder and natural mica on the edges.
