Find yourself drinking extra coffee these days? It’s so comforting and warm, we’ve been enjoying it and other hot drinks a lot this Spring. Our great new Coffee Frame Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set is perfect for sending coffee-inspired wishes to a friend. But it could easily be used to spread the joys of tea or hot chocolate, too. Pour another cup and join us!
This set has a great coffee cup and frame as one stamp. You can put any of the included greetings into the frame, or use a greeting of your own. Of course you can cut out the coffee cup shape and use it by itself on a card, as we’ve done here. This card features our gorgeous Peridot PEARLustre Embossing Powder on the background!
Everyone loves the way our new CURIO stamps feel in your hand when you create. They are a gorgeous hard wood that is painted and lacquered with a finish over the colored label to protect and preserve it. These stamps will give you years of beautiful use with wipe-clean ease. And they’re just so darn cute. IF you didn’t check out Frans video, you really should, to get an idea of how big they are and how perfect for a card. It’s down below.
Today we’re featuring our beautiful Poinsettia CURIO. A galvanized bucket holds a bouquet of beautiful poinsettias, Christmas roses, pine cones, and greenery to send your loved ones for the holiday (at a fraction of the cost of sending real flowers! OR together with real flowers!). You’ll love the impression you get from this stamp that is as beautiful to display as it is to use. Look at the gorgeous card Fran made.
Be sure to head back tomorrow for more fun with our new Holiday Curios!
Join Fran as she introduces our newest additions to the CURIO rubber stamp family. These sweet images will make a Stampendous impression every time!
Stampendous friend, Donna Cennimo, a decorative painter, created this gorgeous canvas featuring Stampendous butterflies and embossing powders. We are so excited that she shared them with us, and we thought you’d enjoy seeing this wonderfully colored nod to Spring.
Donna embossed each butterfly with two layers of Chunky Clear Embossing Powder then added colors as desired. She used Detail Black, Silver Tinsel, Purple, Blue, Chunky Gold and Chunky Silver on different areas of the butterflies. Then she attached them to one of her paintings and she has some left for other amazing projects.
Here are some closeups of the butterflies –
Thanks, Donna, for sharing such a pretty, Spring project with us. Your painting is wonderful and your army of butterflies are a colorful bit of cheer!!
Laurel Burch was all about love. She wanted to share the love that is the core connection between all living things, and her art clearly demonstrates this. You can learn lots more about Laurel and her journey at www.laurelburchstudios.com
Our newest designs for January from Laurel Burch are all about love as well, and birthday and friendship! But one of our very favorite sets from this release has been the new Laurel Burch Icons Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. This set of little doodles that Laurel included in most of her art provide a great opportunity to make backgrounds and borders with a Laurel Burch flair. They’re ideal embossed in gold or used with your monoprinting plate or other techniques. Here’s the set:

In addition to our great holiday stamps this year, we released some awesome new essentials. Have a look at some of these wonderful products!
First up is our brand new Twinkle Glitter! This vintage-looking glitter adds a ton of sparkle wherever it goes. We like to add a focal piece on top of our Sticky Panels and then fill the rest of the exposed adhesive with this blingy wonder. The random sizes and shapes of the granules just fill up the space and sparkle and twinkle when you turn the card. Stunning!
Here’s a swatch (you can click on any of these pictures to visit the products or projects on our website) so you can see the grain size and shape variations, it’s really cool.
It comes in a beautiful, big jar, so you have lots to play with!
It was a huge favorite with our Design Team this year. Here you can see a sample by Kristine Reynolds using the Twinkle Glitter behind our beautiful Pinecone Decoration stamp. You can see the extreme level of twinkle this glitter throws out!
Another great new product we released this season was our Ice Pink Embossing Enamel. Ice Pink joins last year’s Rose Gold and Iced Blue in the Frantage Embossing Enamels line. These pearly metallics are holiday perfect! Photographs cannot do them justice!
