Halloween Labels – Potion Safety

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

We’re back today with a little public service announcement about your witch’s potions. It’s always so important to label them correctly! Using eye of newt when you needed toe of frog, as we all know, can be an utter disaster. That’s why we’ve created this wonderful Cling Rubber and Cutting Die Set this year – Halloween Labels. You can click on the picture to be taken to the product on our website.

In our own dungeon at Stampendous, we created these marvelous bottles to hold glitters, mica, and other sparkly things with which we make magic every day.

The amazing Lea Fritts from our design team made this wonderful coffin….see, this is the kind of thing that happens when potions go bad!

Elements of Excitement!

Pinecone Ornament by Kristine Reynolds

This week we’re celebrating those cool Elements that make our holiday cards so exciting. And we’re offering a special shout out to our newest family favorite, Twinkle Glitter!

Fran’s Glitzy Adhesive Technique and Encrusted Adhesive Technique are perfect for making a glittering area of bling behind any focal point layer. They’re super easy to do! Just apply a layer of our Sticky Panels, adhere your focal point on the adhesive area, then sprinkle your favorite blings on the remaining, exposed adhesive… Voila!! If you use embossing powder, you’ll want to heat it, but you can mix embossing enamels, glitters, mica, color fragments, glass glitter and more for some ultimate excitement.  There are sooo many looks you can achieve!

 

As you can see, the Design Team has lots to share with you today!! Click below to see more of their great projects, some of them have more than one, because they posted on Wednesday as well! Leave everyone some love so we can enter you in the drawing to win a jar of Twinkle Glitter. (contest details are HERE from Monday).  AND, in case this doesn’t give you enough to work on this weekend, here are some videos of Fran demonstrating this incredibly fun and easy technique.

Part of Your World 1: Look at this Stuff!

Isn’t it Neat?
Wouldn’t you say our collection’s complete?

We’ve been swimming with mermaids this week in our Part of Your World 1 series. Be sure to join us next week for Part of Your World 2: Under the Sea!

Today we’re sharing one of our most popular stamps of all time! Our Mermaid stamp has been with us since January 2011, and she’s still one of our best sellers.

P151 Mermaid Stamp

She’s been featured in some of the biggest craft stores, like Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics, and she’s been offered by most of our independent retailers as well. She’s been the focus of tons of wonderful projects like the ones below: (click on them to make them larger)

 

But the pièce de résistance, we’re sure you’ll agree, is this amazing project by Design Team Alumni Suzanne Czosek! This project is our all-time most pinned project on Pinterest! It’s been shared and pinned to boards almost 8,000 times! Isn’t it luscious, with all that Halo Glitter, and Color Fragments, and so much more goodness! It’s really one of our favorites ever!

Do you have a sample you’ve made with our beautiful Mermaid Stamp? We’d love to see it! Feel free to post it on social media and tag us with #Stampendous or @Stampendous. Or post it on our Stampendous Facebook Group, our Stampendous Flickr Group, or email us at submissions@stampendous.com.  You can also upload a Stampendous project of your own at any time at https://www.stampendous.com. On the front page of our site you’ll see a place to Submit Your Project.

A Year of Favorites from 2016

favs2016

Happy New Year! We are back in the office and ready to celebrate 2017 with exciting new products and innovation at Creativation 2017!

We also want to take a short walk through the posts of 2016 and share our most favorite events and products we had the fortune to blog. It was a tough process only to pick just a few posts when we had SO many exciting events like our collaborations with new companies and new product lines, but these posts show a glimpse at the fantastic year we had in 2016!

Faces of Stampendous

Faces in papercrafting and journaling are a steady trend, and we added more pleasant ones for stamping them up in style. This is just one of many samples with Beautiful Braid and Feminine Face.

Embossing Poppy Puddles in Melt Media

In March we shared a full week of creative embossing techniques with a glimpse at Fran Seiford’s book “Embossing Techniques From A to Z.” Here’s an example from our posts that week using the fabulous technique from Fran on melting embossing powders.

Nathalie Kalbach Blog Hop

This was the year of remarkable foam stamps designed by Nathalie Kalbach for our January release and the designers from Nathalie’s Creative Squad joined our team for a week of mixed media fun! You can see from this peek at Marsha Valk’s project during the hop that it was full of vibrant projects!

Mice Beachy Scenes

These mice were popping up throughout the year for each season of products, and the summer scenes were all incredibly fun for our design team to create cards. This favorite Sandpiper scene is by Lea Fritts and sums up our entry into the sweet summer months of the northern hemisphere.

There are Always Flowers

Flowers are always in bloom at Stampendous, and we pulled them together in June for a wonderful bouquet of projects. This is a beautifully painted canvas made by Debbie Cole with a combination of flower and butterfly stamps from our April catalog.

 

Pink Your Life

We were and still are thrilled to be working with Pink Your Life to make their line of stamps designed by Nicoletta Zanella. Each release just keeps getting more amazing! You are going to love the new ones coming out soon!

Here’s A HOOT For Decorative Painting

Yes, we do give a HOOT for some amazing artists who gather at the Heart of Ohio Tole Chapter convention! It was incredibly fun to meet everyone and share the art of combining stamps with decorative painting! Another creation by Debbie Cole using Fox Friend stamp shows just how fun it can be to stamp and paint!

Stack It Up For Fall and Winter

This little woodland creature is part of a creative Stampendous product we call Stack stamps. It’s the paper dolls of stamping, just mix and match heads, bodies, arms, legs and hats to create a bevy of woodland and snowy images. The Fall and Winter themes for these stamps were packed into these three sets; Woodsy Stack, Winter Stack, and Costume Stack.

Starry Swirls

Fran was inspired to design a swirled background stamp after creating a night scene with the Cling Mermaid Stamp Set, so in our October release, we included sunflowers for a Van Gogh stamping theme.

Bible Journal With Stampendous

Bible journaling took an updated look with two new stamp sets that will stay current no matter what chapter or verse you are studying. Take a peek at Bible Promises and Bible Journal on our website if you haven’t seen them yet, they really are great tools for creatives journaling in their Bibles.

Inspirational Sentiments and More

We remembered the holiday season with our great selection of sentiment and background stamps that tell of the spirit and traditions of Christmas. This cheerful card by Kristine Reynolds is only one of many shared throughout the week from our design team.

There were so much more favorites from our posts in 2016 from our mixed media products, company collaborations, and new introductions to team members and more products. It was an overwhelmingly blessed year, and we look forward to 2017 with the same excitement! Hang on, it’s going to be a fantastic year at Stampendous!
