DOSomething.org is a new website inviting folks to participate in a huge variety of activities to give back to their communities. They post women’s issues, pets available for adoption, and so much more. Now they’ve started a trend that Stampendous can really get behind! Birthday Mail is a campaign running from July 30 – October 11, 2013 to collect handmade birthday cards at homeless shelters to help homeless children celebrate their birthdays! We were so excited about this idea that we immediately popped a pile of cards in a priority mail envelope and sent it off! We love handmade birthday cards and think everyone deserves one! We know you do, too.
Make some cards and share them! Make them with friends, make them with your children, make them with your church or school group! DOSomething.org will award one lucky card maker a $4,000 scholarship, but that’s just a bonus! The real joy will come from sharing your talent with others!
Share your card on our Facebook Page when you share it on the Birthday Mail Website and we’ll enter you to win our darling Birthday Kiddos Perfectly Clear Stamps! Now THAT sounds like a winning proposition!!
We’re so excited when folks use our products. Several of our Design Team Alumni naturally have a sizeable Stampendous stash, so when they break it out to do something special it always warms our hearts. Our DT is such a big, happy family, that it’s like having your daughter come home from college for the weekend when one of our gals plays with some of our goodies. Here’s what we’ve spotted around the web recently.
We’re keeping our eyes open for fantastic Stampendous projects from past Design Team Members or anyone, for that matter! Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you post something on your blog that you’d like us to mention! And be sure to enter our February challenge! Only a few more days left!
As promised our Design Team has been sneak peeking our new products this week, all from the amazing mind of Fran Seiford, Stampendous Owner and Designer. Have you been checking out their blogs?
This product is all available on our WHOLESALE website for our customers already. You’ll see them on our our retail site very soon, and in your local scrapbook or stamp store. To locate a store, check out our Dealer Locator! You can find retailers in countries all around the world there as well as online shops! We’re already shipping!
Here are some great peeks at what we’ve got for you in this realease:
Just a quick reminder that our Challenges can now be found on the page way at the tippy top of our blog! You can see the January inspiration and entries for our Sweet Kiddos theme HERE
We hope you’ll play along with us!
It’s a crazy weekend at Stampendous! We’re at the Craft Hobby Association show in Anaheim, CA (our hometown, yippee!) and we’re showing your local rubber stamp and scrapbook store owners our newest goodies! Wanna see?
Look for these great new products and images at your local scrapbook or stamping store soon! Please ask your local store if they haven’t ordered yet to get you the products you want! You can find great dealers who carry our products HERE and terrific online stamp stores who carry our products HERE.
These products will be available on our website later in the month together with dozens of projects using the terrific new designs and accessories.
If you’re following us on Instagram, you’ll see more projects as the show continues! These will post to our Facebook Page, Tumblr, and Twitter Feed as well. Hope you’ll join us for the fun and excitement of the new show!!
We are so glad we stopped by the Simi Creative booth at CHA in July and discovered Wee Scapes! Our designers have had an amazing time playing with these products and combining them with Stampendous images for fun projects, little worlds, cards, and scrapbook pages. We hope you’ll take the time to check out a local retailer of Wee Scapes and add some “model magic” to your creations. One of the most amazing things about these products is that they can be tinted or colored with almost any coloring medium, and they can be cut to size with just regular scissors. They are a breeze to work with!
Today several designers will be sharing projects with us. They’ve saved the best for last, so be sure to visit all the blogs and leave comments for your chance to win some fantastic goodies.
We certainly hope you’ve found some inspiration in our playing with Wee Scapes! We were so happy to be able to share them with you! This is our last partnership of 2012, looking forward to a fun 2013. We’d sure love it if you’d comment here or on our Facebook page and let us know what you’d like to see for 2013!
Ever want to create your own fantasy spot for a little bit of escape? Our stamped images do, so our Design Team have created some tiny Wee Scapes worlds for them to live in. These terrific products from Simi Creative are designed for Architectural Models, Model Railroaders, and even school kids just dying to build a scale model of their local courthouse for their 5th period Social Studies Class.
But if you had some left over… and you were a scrapbooker or cardmaker… and your child (or architect, or model railroad aficionado) weren’t looking…. you could make something unbelievably cool! And you could do it with Stampendous Rubber Stamps and Essentials! These designers did:
Be sure to comment on the Designer’s Blogs for a chance to win some of these great little pieces of scenery and some Stampendous stamps. If you don’t have model builders in your life, head to the Store Locator on the Simi Creative website for where to buy Wee Scapes in your area!
AND a couple of our Design Team have created projects for tomorrow as well, so we’ll have Wee Scapes Friday and then LOTS of Wee Scapes Saturday! Yippee!
