Scrapbook Adhesives Holiday Blog Hop

Well, first leave us a comment below, then visit the

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog

and leave them a comment.

THEN click on this Rafflecopter Link  (it’s on their blog, too) and follow the instructions there. Easy! U.S. winners only, and our Official Rules are always HERE.

Today we want to share another amazing sample with our Winter White Cling Stamps and Cutting Dies Set. Snowflakes are always among our most popular choices, and when they have matching dies you can just cut out a flurry of them for some really great projects.


Winter White by Fran Seiford

We use only Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L’s  3D Foam Adhesive Squares for popping up our elements here at Stampendous. They very generously supply them to us for all of our Store Display boards and we’re super grateful for their generosity! Here, Fran used them to pop up some new snowflakes over a gorgeous alcohol ink background by Jennifer Dove.  Jennifer airbrushed a glossy white card with Copic Markers then spritzed it with Copic Blending Solution in a spray bottle. You can do this same technique with watercolors spritzed with water, or alcohol inks sprayed directly on the card. The perfect spot for your greeting may vary, so your cards will be different, just like snowflakes. Create your backgrounds a whole sheet at time and cut up for your cards. You can see this card up close by clicking on it above.

Come back tomorrow for more inspiration and more hopping fun!!

Part of Your World 1: Look at this Stuff!

Isn’t it Neat?
Wouldn’t you say our collection’s complete?

We’ve been swimming with mermaids this week in our Part of Your World 1 series. Be sure to join us next week for Part of Your World 2: Under the Sea!

Today we’re sharing one of our most popular stamps of all time! Our Mermaid stamp has been with us since January 2011, and she’s still one of our best sellers.

P151 Mermaid Stamp

She’s been featured in some of the biggest craft stores, like Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics, and she’s been offered by most of our independent retailers as well. She’s been the focus of tons of wonderful projects like the ones below: (click on them to make them larger)


But the pièce de résistance, we’re sure you’ll agree, is this amazing project by Design Team Alumni Suzanne Czosek! This project is our all-time most pinned project on Pinterest! It’s been shared and pinned to boards almost 8,000 times! Isn’t it luscious, with all that Halo Glitter, and Color Fragments, and so much more goodness! It’s really one of our favorites ever!

Winter and Christmas Card Making

Today is Winter and Christmas card making day here on our blog with six All in One stamps to see! Christmas is the biggest season for card giving and if you have made your cards before you know that it can be a time consuming task.

Our All in Ones are here to help to create oodles of quick cards that are cheerful and darling surely to put smiles on friends and families faces. Each stamp has a focal image, a phrase, a background and a frame so finishing up your holiday cards will be a breeze.

Here are stacks of each stamp design on a colorful monoprint paper made with the Creative Palette Monoprinting Plate, DecoArt paint and a couple NK Studio Stamps Sets for texture, then they were glued onto a neutral card base for quick work of your mailing list. Now isn’t that a vision of fun!

All in One Holiday Cards by Janelle Stollfus

From the simple one-stamping technique like Janelle created with her set of cards to wherever your creativity leads you, the All in Ones work great in any design.

Jennie Lin Black created a set of cards with a few adorable embellishments for a special touch. These are all so sweet!

Now let’s see what design direction our team went on their All in One cards. Enjoy, leave some comment love and we’ll see you back here next week when we’ll be creating more for Christmas.

Snow Many Friends, Snow Much Time

It has been a great week of building new fantastic projects with our design team using the Build A Snowman Perfectly Clear Set and the ideas are still coming like this project from the archives by Jennifer Dove.

This is the sweetest pendant using the three faces from Build A Snowman set. Click on the picture or caption to find out how Jennifer made this beauty.

The Build A Snowman stamp set combines well with our other snowman stamps to create a countryside dotted with our snow buddies. Here are a few stamps linked to their spot on our store and a great project to inspire.

These snowman friends are bundled up for winter! Send a snowy holiday greeting this Christmas with these buddies, or embellish your favorite Winter scrapbook page.

Room For Some Outdoor Fun!

When it’s picnic time there is room for outdoor fun and we’ve captured a few goodies from our summer style stamps today to share with you. If you have never been in a tree swing you should really try it out! It’s okay, it’s for kids of all ages and even safe when you use our stamp to create a fun card or scrapbook page.


P121 Tree Swing Wood Mount Stamp

There’s just something about a swing that makes the day seem care-free and perfect, just like this simple birthday card made by Janelle Stollfus a few years ago with Tree Swing (and retired set, Who’s Counting Perfectly Clear Stamp Set).

Tree Swing by Janelle Stollfus


When the wind picks up it’s time to grab a kite and see how far along the skyline it will go. Surprisingly it doesn’t take much wind to bring Itty Bit along in the kite’s flight path with this next stamp.



HHW01 Hopper High Wood Mount Stamp

Color instructor and team alumni, Jennifer Dove, created a moving design with Hopper High and sentiment from Hope Verses Perfectly Clear™ Stamps. That sky is just incredible, don’t you think?

Hopper High Hope Verses by Jennifer Dove


Pebble has it all planned out with a fabulous Hammock Nap and definitely making progress with the plan. What else is there to do after filling your tummy from a picnic spread?

HGRR02 Hammock Nap Wood Mount Nap

This delightful sunflower color card is sprinkled with sun-rays with all the great yellow elements. Debi Hammons has it all set up for Pebbles and tied it with a bow. Instructions are available on our website for most of the samples we share, check out this one here.

Hammock Nap by Debi Hammons


That was a fun walk through some previously released stamps and a treasured look at some of our favorite activities outdoor. Still curious about more summer style stamps? Look for the summer stamp category on our website HERE.

Now these designers are waiting to share their projects from our April 2015 Catalog and I’m sure you’ll love their spin on the picnic fun theme.

Product Theme for Making Art

This has been a great week of making art, seeing how the design team from Spectrum Noir and our own talented team have created such a great variety of projects. Did you notice our theme week House-Mouse Designs® appear here and there? The gallery for this theme has grown and included here on this post, but first let’s take a look at the stamps that were the inspiration for this theme week.

Isn’t the image of this stamp the truth! Once we start stamping it’s likely to turn into a repeatable moment! House-Mouse Monica has turned into an avid stamper with this paw print stamp.

Making Prints

I always thought there was a special touch to flowers that made them so beautiful and now I’m thinking it’s all because Maxwell has a paintbrush and paint well.

Painted Pansies

Oh dear, a painting mishap between a paintbrush and tail! This adorable stamp is perfect to send an encouraging message, apology or to scrapbook those messy painting sessions of your children.

Painting Pals

Now for the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful inspiring weekend!

Making Art with Friends

You might have noticed we are making art with House-Mouse Designs and our friends at Spectrum Noir this week. Still we are gathering up our artsy mice and sharing them here in a neat little gallery. You can click on any caption to take you either the designer’s blog or a project page on our website for supplies and instructions to create one like it.


Come back tomorrow with more hopping with Spectrum Noir!

Decorated Eggs

Do you decorate with colored vinegar water ? Use glue and glitter? Or maybe favor the HappyHoppers way of decorated eggs for Easter? We believe these must be the cutest way to enjoy decorated eggs.

Easter Bunny Rubber Stamp

Jennifer Dove paints outside the lines using ribbon on this fun card with Itty Bit applying the details to Hop It’s Easter Bunny costume.

Easter Bunny by Jennifer Dove

Hop-It, Bumble, and Itty Bit are getting accustomed to their wobbly costumes and are prepared to parade across the next project that comes along for Easter.

Easter Hares Rubber Stamp

When all the decorating is done one can get a wee bit tired. Depending on how big the egg is and how small the artist it could leave you so tired your asleep before you know it like Monica here has taken to the top of her creation.

Easter Egg Nap Rubber Stamp

Jennie Lin Black’s talent with color is remarkable on this shaped card.

Take a look at these designer’s posting their wonderful Egg-themed projects.
