Friday in Fran’s Fabulous Friday FUN Watercolor Video Series, she explored the incredible depth you can achieve with just one color and varying amounts of water. This study in values returned some really stunning mini-masterpieces. These cards would be great for guys, for any occasion!
You can watch the video by clicking on it below. Here are some of the great cards she made!
Both the Field of Flowers and Forest Path stamp sets look amazing in color, but for a quick, striking project that will wow your friends, this sepia approach is a great one to try. Watch the full video below!
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!
The sweet Elephant never forgets your birthday! He comes with a darling, leafy window for your WindowRama cards, shaker card, or other design. Plus, you get the die for extra leaves to make your card a luscious jungle. You’ll also get the elephant stamp and matching die, plus two greetings!
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.
These wild new friends have a ton of possibilities, but wait until you see the accessories they’re bringing to the safari! Stay tuned the rest of the week to see lots more jungle fun. Meanwhile, here is a great look at some adorable samples by Stampendous Founder, Fran Seiford! You can click on any of the pictures above to be taken to the product on our website.

It’s American football season, and our little mousey friends are ready to watch their heroes sail to victory! With popcorn and soda (with triple caffeine!) they’re all ready to root on their favorite team!! (pssst… they haven’t told us which team that is, so you can color it to reflect your own favorites!)
Why not start those Game Day invitations now?! We’ve got the perfect stamp! And coloring is the ideal activity while watching the big game. This adorable stamp is available in Wood Mounted and Cling Rubber.

We have a veritable forest of tree images here at Stampendous! They are among our most popular choices.
