Peeking Pals, Fun and Frolic

Fran’s Watercolor Series will resume this Friday with some new stamp sets that showcase the new techniques she’s ready to show you! She has been sharing some Bonus Lessons in the interim, however, and we featured our Peeking Pals Perfectly Clear Stamps in her lesson last Friday. We know you’ll enjoy her whimsical paintings of these darling animals and want to try some yourself! Check out her latest videos, then get ready to resume lessons on Friday!

Wine a Little, You’ll Feel Better

For our January release, Fran created several Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets that include a frame image with sentiments that fit into the frame for easy, beautiful cards. One of those is our lovely Wine Frame. A beautiful, and sometimes funny, way to invite your friends to join you for a virtual glass of something from grape juice to Cabernet.

Jungle Fun with Copic Markers

In our recent April Release we had a great time with our new Jungle themed products! Fran made tons of WindowRama cards and dioramas using all of the great dies in those sets. You can see lots of her projects in videos on our YouTube Channel.

In many of those projects you’ll see delightful, little, mini-backgrounds that Fran made with Copic Markers. We thought you’d like to see how she put those together.

Copic Marker backgrounds for Jungle Series Cards

Here’s a video where she shows you how, and you can see how we incorporated them in to our fun Jungle Series cards.

Stampendous’ new wild collection from our brand new April 2019 catalog will have you running through the jungle, swinging from the trees, and loping across the savannah with a great new crew of animal friends.

The adorable Lion comes with a fun, fern, circle window die for your WindowRama or other card types. It also includes a separate die for cutting out the lion’s face, and a bobble head die to make his face wobble on a cardstock spring. You can use this wobbler on any of our new animal friends. You’ll love playing with this fantastic set. Of course it comes with the lion stamp and cutting die, some wild grass, and a cute greeting! A complete set!

Our new Monkey is a bundle of fun! He can swing from so many things on your cards or WindowRama dioramas. In his set you’ll receive the monkey cling rubber stamp, a banana, and a greeting. Plus dies for a jungle vine circle window, extra leaves, the banana, and the monkey are included. A great value!

Finally, a tall Giraffe bends down to see you better. With two greetings, the giraffe cling rubber stamp, and a stand of acacia trees, the giraffe is ready to survey the savannah. He also includes an acacia circle die for your WindowRama set, a clouds/bushes die, and the cutting die for the giraffe himself.

Everyday QSets! Funny and Fun!

QSets and Cutting Dies Banner

We were very excited at Christmas time when our new QSets of Cling Rubber and Cutting Dies were so well-received! These sweet little stamp sets have humorous and whimsical images and sentiments that make creating cards, tags, boxes, and bags easy and fun. The coordinating cutting dies leave a cute, small white border around the images to mimic children’s stickers.

No Probllama card

New, everyday designs are here with images stamps for Spring, Summer, friends and fun. We know you’ll have small (and not-so-small) folks somewhere in your life who will love your projects made with these sweet characters!

Old Goat WindowRama

QSets are a bit different. The image is shown on the carrier sheet instead of on top of the stamp. But they’re super easy to store in your regular, slim storage. Our Thin Stuftainers are the ideal storage containers for these great sets. They also all fit into the WindowRama die set and look great romping through the Meadows Edge. You’ll love how these sets coordinate with just everything!

Meadows Edge Puppy Boy

Fran made a great video sharing these fun sets and their coordinating die sets. Check it out here:

And, of course, our Design Team have had some great fun with these wonderful sets! Hop around and see their projects and leave a comment, you might win your favorite set of stamps and matching dies. We’ll give away three sets to U.S. Mailing Addresses. The Official Rules for our contests are always here.
