Paisley for All!

Peacock and Paisley

We have two great stamp sets with coordinating dies to share this week. On Monday we met our Poised Peacock and our Paisley Patterns. Both Cling Rubber Stamp Sets come with a free template for masking the images or creating super cool backgrounds. Both also have available, matching, cutting dies! You’ll love these gorgeous sets! (and Free Shipping with Promo Code BLG717 on orders over $50)

On Wednesday we took a closer look at our Poised Peacock. So today, let’s investigate our Paisley Patterns set a little more closely! This awesome set includes six stamps. Five are very definite elements and they have corresponding cutting dies in the die set. The sixth stamp is a wonderful background that is delightful colored in, tone on tone, or even used as a resist pattern. The included stencil/mask set for the five elements is perfect for masking/layering or for coloring them in with stencil brushes, sponges, paint, or other methods.

Fran has created a great video sharing her samples with these fun stamp images:

Wanna win one?

We’ll give away one Poised Peacock Stamp Set and Cutting Dies and one Paisley Patterns Stamp Set and Cutting Dies (so two lucky winners) this week! Just leave us a comment telling us if you’ve ever seen a live peacock! Where? When? Was it just the coolest? We want to know! Or if you’re more Paisley than Peacock, tell us about your lifelong love affair with those irresistible patterns!  U.S. Winners only – Official Rules.

We have so enjoyed this week reading your hilarious adventures with peacocks all over the world. Who knew so many people had chased or been chased by them! You’re all awesome story tellers!! We can sure see that a lot of you would love one of these sets!

We have Design Team Members playing along today –

Peacocks Galore

Peacock and Paisley

We’re sharing two great new Cling Rubber Stamp Sets with Matching Cutting Dies this week. We met our Poised Peacock and our Paisley Patterns on Monday . 

Both Cling Rubber Stamp Sets come with a free template for masking the images or creating super cool backgrounds. You’ll love these gorgeous sets! Today, let’s look closer at our Poised Peacock.

The set has four stamps and a stencil that makes a great peacock feather background. The matching cutting dies cut right on the edge, with even the peacock feet cutting out perfectly. We evened the dies out around the edges of the feathers, so a little coloring “outside the lines” will produce easy-to-cut feathers that look amazing.

 

Fran has made a wonderful video sharing her samples with this great stamp set and dies.

Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop

Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

 

 

 

We’re hopping once again with the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop. We’re so excited to share Stampendous with this fun-loving group of bloggers and fans. Coffee makes every day a little bit easier, (dare we say “perky”?) and several of us at Stampendous never start a day without it!

We have a number of great coffee or tea themed images, and we thought we’d share them with you today. Then we’ll move on to some inspiration from the Design Team.

The theme for this hop is Summer, and we hope you’ll hop over there (just click on the picture) and hop along with everyone. There are prizes! Lots of prizes! All is explained at the MAIN HOP POST.

For your Summer Stamping Savings, we’ve got Free Shipping on all website orders over $50 through August 31! Use Promo Code BLG717.

Our original Stampendous images by Fran Seiford contain some great coffee images. Fran herself loves spritzing ACTUAL coffee on her cards for a vintage, aged look. Take a look at the stamps in our coffee category HERE.

 

Of course, what would a good cup of coffee be without cake? Well, it would still be a good cup of coffee, but cake is nice, too!

 

Our licensed House-Mouse Designs® friends have a healthy addiction to caffeine as well. Here are some of the cutest critters you’ve ever seen, enjoying their morning cuppa.

Our Dreamweaver Stencils line also has some great metal stencils and dies for your coffee creations. Have a look:

We’ve even got a Tea Cup from our wonderful Laurel Burch collection of licensed images:

And finally our team has created some really fun cards using our coffee images. Check out this adorable sample.
