Our April 2016 Catalog is no exception, and several of her wonderful creations are in its pages! Here are a few:

There are Always Flowers…

… for those who want to see them.  – Henri Matisse

We’re celebrating flowers this week on the Stampendous blog! We can’t wait to get around to sharing our new Holiday goodness with you, but our retail stores are stocking up now so that they can fill your orders, and our Design Team let us know that they had more fun to share from our April Catalog! No wonder, it was such a gorgeous celebration of Spring and Summer, and flowers are a big part of that! Florals, trees, nature of all kind, in all her glory! You’ll find lots of it here!

Here are some of our favorite projects we received from Designers Jennie Lin Black and Rhea Weigand on our Educator Team and from our Creative Artist Consultant, Debbie Cole, CDA at Stampendous for these great products:


Our fantastic Design Team has some more wonderful things to share with you! Please click on each name below to visit their blogs and see their gorgeous projects. And we know they’d love it if you would stop and smell the flowers for a little bit, and leave a comment for each of them!

HGRP07 Sledding Santa

It’s a great day in the snow with our furry friends and it is even better for us because we stay dry and warm inside! This fun sledding card does well as a sweet encouragement card for family or friend just like this card by Janelle Stollfus.

Two more friends sledding with a few tweet friends near by. It couldn’t be a more enjoyable outing unless of course that candy cane is a real treat!

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!

Birthday Buddies Wrap Up

The last of our birthday buddies have been gathered up and you can see them here in the gallery. We let them come to the front of the line so you can find them faster! Enjoy


Our buddies spotlighted this week are quite the party animals and it was great to invite them to our blog hops this week. Click on any of the captions or stamps images below to take you to a product page where you’ll find links to many more projects ideas.
