We know you always love new greetings, and we’ve got some wonderful new sets in our newest release. Lovely, big words that can be a focal point, background, border, or more, together with small, clear phrases that complement many of the beautiful, script words. You’ve seen them on several samples so far, but we wanted them to have their own day in the sun. The large script words go with the smaller printed words to make dozens of great greetings for your cards, tags, gift cards, and more.
Here’s a great video that Fran put together to show you how easy making great cards with these sets can be!
The two sets, Big Words Happy and Big Words Thanks, can be found on our website or in your local stamping or scrapbooking store. Here they are in all their glory (you can click on the picture or the link)
Our Design Team has been very busy using these words, and our Greetings Galore set, on so many wonderful samples. Please visit their blogs and leave them some love, they’ve got a lot of inspiration to share!
We have two beautiful new stamps, released in April, that have a fun circular design. This gives them a very unique look and lends to some beautiful creations. One of them, the Tree Circle, is a gorgeous silhouette. The other, the Wisteria Circle, offers an opportunity to color beautiful, lush flowers in purples, blues, pinks or hues of your choice. Both will remind you of a beautiful, relaxing Spring or Summer day outdoors.
Our team shared some fabulous art they created for our April catalog and some other wonderful creations last week. We know you will just love these projects. We wonder if you’d like to win one? We’ll choose three winners at random from comments on the blogs below to win your choice of the Tree Circle or the Wisteria Circle. U.S. mailing addresses only, and Official Rules are always HERE.
Our 6″ X 6″ stamps have been so popular with crafters and artists creating many kinds of projects including cards, scrapbook pages, and decorative painting projects. Last week we looked at the new Paris Map (you can see those posts here – MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, and FRIDAY), and this week we’re sharing with the new Moroccan Tile image, which is a perfect background for all these great projects.
This image coordinates well with our Moroccan Mesh Stencil –
Our Design Team posted all last week with this great stamp. Please go leave them some comments if you haven’t already. We are just in love with so many of them!
The beauty of Paris is famed the world over. Walking her charming streets is the one place in Europe that looks exactly how you’ve always imagined it would look. Small sidewalk cafes, the stunning Tour d’Eiffel, the Champs Elysees! It’s all incredible and awe inspiring. What would you MOST like to see in the City of Lights? We’d love to hear about your favorite Paris memory or dream. We’re giving away three sets of this beautiful stamp set and matching cutting dies this week! If you missed the chance to comment on Monday, be sure to do so as well as today. Our Official Contest Rules are always HERE.
We sent our wonderful Paris Bonjour set and the matching dies to the amazing Vicky Papaioannou and she worked her magic, as usual. We just love how she combines products to create a stunning layout. We know you’ll love her little trip to Paris. She also included our new Paris Map 6″X6″ Background Stamp. It’s such a versatile background for any travel-themed creations. Please leave her some love! These gifted artists thrive on your positive comments!
Meanwhile, back home our Design Team has some wonderful things to share using the Paris set, and we have a terrific post from Sue Drees of the House-Mouse Design Team joining us! Be sure to leave some love for all of them!
Everyday Chicks are having fun at home today. It’s so easy to have the right number of kids, moms, dads, cousins, uncles, aunts, whatever you need for your special family when you play with our terrific chicks. Every occasion can include the whole gang!
The chicks are premium clear stamps with a set of coordinating dies right in the package. You can find them in your favorite store or on our website by clicking the picture below. You can see that the set comes with three sizes of chicks and a ton of everyday and special occasion accessories. The dies are all attached in one big piece so that you can easily clip them apart for use. They do not line up with the stamps to cut in a big group, because every stamp is separate to save on paper. There are 25 stamps, each with its own die. The accessories die cut right on the edge of the image, but the chicks have a little space around them so they look fluffy. You can color outside the lines on your chicks to get that fluffy, feathery look.
Our very own Fran Seiford has made some super fun cards featuring our chicks. Click on each one to be taken to the project page on our website for step by step instructions and a full supply list.
We hope our Sunny Hello has brightened your week. Would you like to win one? We’ll give away three Cling Rubber Sunny Hello stamps to three lucky, US winners. Oooh… you might want to run back to MONDAY and WEDNESDAY to make sure you’ve left a comment. This fun greeting is perfect for any occasion, you’ll use it all year. And with the simple coloring or fancy layering, it’s great for a quick card or when you have more time. And we have another designer sharing today!
Meanwhile, we certainly hope that all of our fans out there in Stampingland have a wonderful Easter this weekend. Some of our Design Team members have created Easter projects to share with us today. Enjoy! Be sure to come back on Monday for a terrific hop with our Everyday Chicks!!
Welcome to a brand new catalog! Our April catalog is full of fun stamps, inspiration, and awesome greetings that will become classics in your collection. We’re starting off this week with a Sunny Hello. This was a huge favorite with our Design Team, and we had some fun with it in the office as well. Let’s take a look at this great image that comes wood mounted or on our wonderful Stampendous Cling Rubber. It’s a great image and measures about 4-1/4″ Wide and 2-3/4″ tall. It’s got a bright spot of sun to color, and bold greetings already done for you. All you need is your Picasso Stencil to add a cloud background and you’re good to go.
P320 Sunny Hello
Take a look at the fun that our Design Team has had with this wonderful stamp!
We’re sharing more of our Spring samples with you today! So much gorgeous inspiration! Our team has definitely done it again!
Our in-house team isn’t too shabby either! We are so lucky to have the super-talented Tammie Wilson working in our Sales Department. She’s an amazing Decorative Painter and she has created some beautiful projects for us. Some of them use our wonderful Spring products.
Take a look at her gorgeous Dutch Tulips box. It features our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Script stamp in the background. These great backgrounds are so wonderful for the painting crowd, they’re just loving them! It’s so easy to apply ink or acrylic paint to the stamp.
Isn’t it beautiful??!! Tammie was even kind enough to write out the directions for us so that we can add it as a project to our website. This was all done with acrylic paints, and her easy instructions make it so much more doable than you would guess. What a lovely gift to make for someone special!
Our team is sharing some wonderful projects this week as well. We know you’ll stop by their blogs and give them some love. And the fabulous Sue Drees from the House-Mouse and Friends Design Team has joined us as well with a wonderful project featuring theseDutch Tulips.
Spring is still in the Air at Stampendous! We have lots of great projects left to share with you!
We had so many beautiful, large flowers in our January Catalog, and Fran had so much fun making samples with them. We wanted to share with you some of her creations.
The Fresh Peony and the Coneflower both have wonderful masks/templates/stencil included for free in the package. They also each include a couple wonderful sentiments to make creating a card that much easier. Their matching dies make creating whole bouquets of wonderfulness that much simpler as well.
Here are a few of Fran’s great samples:
