Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils Abroad

Fran Seiford and Lynell Harlow are out of the country with some of the newest and most fantastic Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils products.

They recently checked in with us stateside to share some snapshots while they were at the Craft Hobby + Stitch International Trade Show and we aren’t ones to keep it to ourselves!


Decorative Details with Medallions and Borders

If you’re needing decorative elements for the next mixed media, papercrafting or decorative painting project, then take note of these great medallion and border stamps that are lovely as the main focus element or the strong supporting background.

Look at Tenia Nelson’s fabulous focal image card. She rocked this one!


At 3 inches tall our Medallion Circle stamp turns into a great border when repeated across a scrapbook page or even as an etched accent on a mirror.

A border stamp can double as a lacy tablecloth with its double edged design. Did you see it used on Lea Kimmel’s Teacup Cupcake card for our tea time theme week? Here it is again, do you spot it now?


With two different ornate edges it’s like having two stamps in one Ornate Border is beautiful from edge to edge and ready for any design you throw it’s way.

And now it’s time to hop along to see some designer projects. I’ve seen them {wink} both and I think you are really going to like them.

Just Rusting with Andy Skinner at CHA

CHA Show Banner

International Mixed Media Artist and Instructor Andy Skinner is DecoArt’s Executive Creative Consultant. He leads their international design team and is now designing stamps for Stampendous! We’re super excited to have his new designs to expand our Mixed Media offerings, and he was kind enough to demo in our booth at CHA. Here he shows us how you can use just a couple of DecoArt’s Fluid Media Acrylic paints and his new stamps to make a rusty piece of metal out of a piece of cardboard. You’ll be itching to try this one!!

CHA Show BannerWe’re setting up today at the Anaheim Convention Center for the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show – Booth #723. It’s not open to the public, but we know our fans will want to be contacting their favorite stores right away to make sure that your faves from our new release are on their shopping lists!

Product is already shipping to our wholesale customers, and it will be available in their stores soon. We’ll have the retail product up on our website on January 23 after they’ve had a chance to stock their shelves (they fill our orders, you know!).

All weekend we’ll be sneaking some peeks to you from the show floor and from our booth! You can follow us on Instagram as well to see some of the fantastic projects, photos from our Workshop, demos by Nathalie Kahlbach, Andy Skinner, and our own Fran Seiford, and so much more!  We will post our Instagram photos to our Facebook page as well, so if that’s easier for you, you can find us there.

BUT – the show doesn’t start until tomorrow! So maybe you’d like some sneaky peeks today?? Have a look at some videos that Fran made to show some of our latest products. We’ll post more later today and some tomorrow as well.

Check out our newest face set with matching template/mask/stencil! Wow… you’re going to want The Look!

Special Announcement!

We are so excited to be adding Dreamweaver Stencils to the Stampendous family! Effective immediately Stampendous has purchased Dreamweaver Stencils and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Blog followers will know that we have done many collaborations with this terrific product, and the two product lines are a match made in heaven. Be prepared to see a lot more inspiration using stencils, dies, pastes, and, of course, our stamps, glitter, embossing powders, and so much more!

Through the end of February, your Dreamweaver Stencils orders will continue to be placed and filled, as in the past, by Dreamweaver staff and facilities. At the beginning of March operations will move to our Stampendous location in Anaheim, CA. The Dream It Up Blog and Design Team will continue as they have been until at least May 1st, but look for lots of cross-inspiration on both blogs!!

Both product lines will have a booth at the Craft and Hobby Association Show this weekend in Anaheim. Dreamweaver Stencils will be in Booth #2342 and Stampendous will be in Booth #723. Hope to see you there if you’re at the show!

We sneaked a few samples from Dream It Up Team Leader Pam Hornschu’s blog so you can see how much fun we are going to have!

Vintage Yule in the Spotlight

The spotlight this week of our vintage Christmas images look fabulous on their own, but when our Essentials are added they have a magical factor.  If you want to see the magic up close on any of our Essentials, you can check them out on our website, or look at the January Catalog (pages 78-91) to zoom in on swatches of all our current product list.

Tobi Crawford added a halo of Spoonful of Snow around Ribbon Bird and it makes a shiny texture to the once smooth white cardstock. Love that look!

Sparkling and shimmery is newly fallen snow, so why not add some on your snowy card? Debi Hammons added Micro Glitter to the snow of her Christmas Cottage card and boy does it shimmer and sparkle. Trust us.

Janelle’s Train Postcard card is stately sparkled with Micro Glitter on a few elements across the horizon and the oval frame. It’s just enough bling to add some interest to this vintage collage.

This Ribbon Bird card by Pam Hornschu is gorgeous with lots of Frantage embossing on the bird and Ornate Border. The extra sparkle from the Halo Glitter across the base completes this card nicely.
