one summer vacation header

At Stampendous we can see the end of Summer approaching as the kids all get ready to go back to school. Several areas have already started their Fall Semesters.

We think it’s time for One Last Summer Vacation. And we know you’ll agree. One lucky winner can document his or her vacation with our Pink Your Life Whisper Friends Beach Day set. This darling set contains so many fun little stamps from the pen of Nicoletta Zanella.  And you can see in our banner above how adorably it works with our Waves Stencil and regular stencil paste.

Leave us a comment this week telling us about your favorite summer vacation! Sorry, U.S. winners only (although we’d love to hear about ANY of your vacations!) Official Rules live HERE.

We have some awesome Summer Vacation ideas from our design team here, be sure to hop by and give them some love as well.

April Showers and House-Mouse Designs®

Crocus Droplet by Kristine Reynolds

It’s Friday, and our April Showers are just about over! All this week we’ve outfitted ourselves with boots, and cute sayings stamps, layers of umbrellas and let the rain fall with stencils so today we get to play in the rain with our House-Mouse Designs characters and still stay dry!

Monica mouse is so thirsty she takes the chance of a few raindrops crashing upon her nose so she can drink the fresh water from a Crocus bloom.

And here are more rainy scenes of the House-Mouse characters from Ellen Jareckie!

These mice know when to weather the stormy skies or create their own precipitation for their outdoor adventures. You can stop by the House-Mouse Designs section of our website to see the entire collection or go to the New House-Mouse Designs section in our What’s New section.

There are still more projects for our April Shower theme from our design team!

Give the effect of rain on your project with embossing paste or ink and our Rain Stencil. Remember to bring along the Umbrella Stencil to keep dry!

Kristine and Louise both created a little rain shower for their House-Mouse characters, and we just love the different ways you can use the stencil. There are even more projects today for our April Showers theme from our design team!

Contains Spring in Creative Ways!

Friday is here and we have a fun twist to the spring theme for this week. The stamp images in the spotlight today all have beautiful blossoms in creative containers!

Our Bicycle Basket stamp is full of blossoms and ready for a fresh delivery to your project and it also works great with our Pop Up Stages Die Set for a beautiful spring or summer theme card. Watch this video for a quick way to make the basket of flowers pop.

A children’s wagon is full of pretty planted pots to stroll around the garden looking for the perfect place to set them.

It is time to start hearing cheerful birds outside your patio door and we have an adorable Watering Can stamp with a bird who has a song! It’s just the right size for a gift tag, ATC card and more!

It was great to spotlight our newest spring and garden products this week and you can see them on our website with the rest of our Flower Garden, Spring and Summer selection anytime you need inspiration or new ideas but for today we still have more to share from our design team!

Cactus Flower by Laura Drahozal

This whole week we are looking at spring and what inspires us from our gardens! Today’s spotlight is on our beautiful succulent images designed for stencils and stamps with a few in some pretty creative containers.

New metal stencils designed by Fran Seiford from our January catalog are terrific to color in a large variety of hues using stencil brushes, inks, or other media.

And we have some amazing succulent stamps too that look fabulous on cards, scrapbook pages, or in a gardening journal too!
