Our whimsical, new Qsets are celebrating the birth of Christ with a bit of humor! Remember that the dies for cutting out these images are very, very limited. So, if you’re like we are, and you want a die for every stamp, you’ll love these sets, but grab them fast!
Check out some more great samples from our Design Team!
Stampendous friend, Donna Cennimo, a decorative painter, created this gorgeous canvas featuring Stampendous butterflies and embossing powders. We are so excited that she shared them with us, and we thought you’d enjoy seeing this wonderfully colored nod to Spring.
Donna embossed each butterfly with two layers of Chunky Clear Embossing Powder then added colors as desired. She used Detail Black, Silver Tinsel, Purple, Blue, Chunky Gold and Chunky Silver on different areas of the butterflies. Then she attached them to one of her paintings and she has some left for other amazing projects.
Here are some closeups of the butterflies –
Thanks, Donna, for sharing such a pretty, Spring project with us. Your painting is wonderful and your army of butterflies are a colorful bit of cheer!!
We’re sharing more of our Spring samples with you today! So much gorgeous inspiration! Our team has definitely done it again!
Our in-house team isn’t too shabby either! We are so lucky to have the super-talented Tammie Wilson working in our Sales Department. She’s an amazing Decorative Painter and she has created some beautiful projects for us. Some of them use our wonderful Spring products.
Take a look at her gorgeous Dutch Tulips box. It features our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Script stamp in the background. These great backgrounds are so wonderful for the painting crowd, they’re just loving them! It’s so easy to apply ink or acrylic paint to the stamp.
Isn’t it beautiful??!! Tammie was even kind enough to write out the directions for us so that we can add it as a project to our website. This was all done with acrylic paints, and her easy instructions make it so much more doable than you would guess. What a lovely gift to make for someone special!
Our team is sharing some wonderful projects this week as well. We know you’ll stop by their blogs and give them some love. And the fabulous Sue Drees from the House-Mouse and Friends Design Team has joined us as well with a wonderful project featuring theseDutch Tulips.
We’re still excited about releasing our new April Catalog for Summer, but we’ve still got some great samples you haven’t seen from our January Spring release. This week our Design team will treat you to all the inspiration from our October and January catalogs that they haven’t posted yet. And it’s a wonderful Spring-a-palooza!
One thing we haven’t shared enough yet, because they’re our favorite thing right now, is our Spring Borders Die Set. Fran herself had an opportunity to play with these this last week, and she created a terrific collection of even more ideas for these wonderful edge dies.
You remember that the set looks like this –
It has 6 dynamic cutting dies for a huge variety of looks and uses. Well, Fran said, “what if I just get into the stash of scraps we have and go crazy?” She cut a ton of strips and just had a great time layering them on to cards. Card-making doesn’t get easier than this!! It’s all about finding a color story in the scraps you love and just playing with the shapes and patterns.
Can you spot the Easter bunny??
Glitter papers, adding some white with a greeting here and there, you can even make this the surprise interior of a card with a fun window peeking through!
She even used the strips to decorate a hat pattern that she downloaded from the web. Wouldn’t these be a cute project for a little girl’s party!! What fun!
So we have to tell you that the hat above that Fran made is actually sized for her cat, Beaver. We challenged her to get a photo of him wearing it, after all she would have to tie it under his chin, and cats aren’t known for their love of hats… but SHE DID it! And she even got photos!! She’s not even bleeding! Good job, Beaver, such a good sport!!
You’ll still see a lot of projects using these great border dies in our April catalog as we go, our team just loves them so much! And Fran may just have more ideas as we go along, she’s always thinking of something special. Come back Wednesday for more recap from our January catalog projects!

We’re in love with our new Curios stamps and their whimsical, colorful presence in our office and our craft area! They not only make us smile with their fun shapes and colors, they inspire us with card and project ideas all day! By the end of the day we’re brimming with great ideas for using them when we get home. It’s been a very fun experience. These little pops of home decor with their premium quality stamps on the back are just delightful.
