The amazing Vicky Papaioannou is playing in her art journal again, and she’s chosen some of our favorite new stamps! Our wonderful Coneflowers are taking shape in her book which is surely destined to be a Greek national treasure when she’s finished.
Enjoy her gorgeous artwork! We’ll be featuring all of our new flowers in a week of blogs, March 19-23. But we just couldn’t wait to share this incredible video with you!
Even your mom will find our terrific texture cubes easy to use. And she’d love one as a gift! They’re the most versatile stamps she’ll ever own, and they’re just bursting with possibilities.
We have more texture for you today, our friend Andy Skinner has designed two new stamp sets for us that are just amazing for adding texture to your projects.
The first one, Fossils, has so many wonderful patterns and potential completely aside from the great images themselves. Each image can add a ton of texture when applied to a background in a subtle color. You will adore these.
The second set from Andy Skinner is Textures! And it’s full of subtle, almost there images that will haunt the backgrounds of your cards adding a wonderful depth and dimension. Take a look.
We got a couple of great samples from Andy, himself, showing these wonderful stamps
And Andy has his own Design Team who have been playing with these textures and creating some very amazing things!
AND – we hope you’ve read this far because we have some

Our terrific Texture Cubes have been a long tradition here at Stampendous. We’re so excited to be adding two new texture cubes to the current selection.
Each cube has four sides (the Marble has 3) that can be tiled and extended to cover a large area with dynamic background.
They feel great in your hands as you work
They give you lots of options for adding texture and depth to your work.
And they’re super easy to clean, so use them with paint, ink, anything you like!
Here’s a look at all of our cubes!
Marble Texture Cube
Look how cool the marble looks! You stamp the darkest one in the lightest color, then proceed to the medium one in a lighter color, then the veins are dynamic and awesome in gold, black, or many other colors!
Foliate Quad Cube
Tiled Quad Cube
NEW Quest Texture Cube
NEW Ornate Tiles Texture Cube
We’ve got some great inspiration from the Design Team this week! Check out their wonderful projects –
Fran’s 6″ X 6″ Cling Rubber Stamps are just ideal for creating home decor in addition to cards and papercrafts. Along with our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Rubber, these stamps put a variety of creative backgrounds at your fingertips. And their acrylic handles make them easy to use with any media from paint to ink and beyond. We hope you’ll give them a try and share what you create with us. You can load your creations to our Facebook Group, or directly to our website! We love sharing your art.
The great thing about these images is how subtly they can add a bit of texture to a card. Look at this great sample by Kristine Reynolds. The yellow background card has been delicately enhanced through the use of our 6CR002 Crackle stamp! It’s really subtle, but adds so much to the worn feel of the card along with the embossing powder and natural mica on the edges.
More of our Design Team members have things to share with you today from our new 6 X 6 collection!
You will be so in love with these super versatile stamps! Our 6″ X 6″ Cling Rubber stamps are just a bit smaller than our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Rubber stamps. Both are fantastic for creating backgrounds on Decorative Painting projects, art journals, home decor, cards, and so much more. Use just a small area, or tile the whole image over a large area. Use paint, ink, or any other media that works on rubber stamps. Plus, with our square Perfectly Clear Handles, sized just for these stamps, you can get a crisp, sharp image every time!
Look at these awesome backgrounds that Fran created just quickly using these wonderful images!
Let’s see what our Design Team has done with these great stamps today!
You’ll love our brand new 6″ X 6″ Cling Rubber stamps for making a Stampendous impression every time! These wonderful backgrounds are so versatile, you can easily line them up side to side for making very large projects, or you can use just a small part of them for smaller projects. They’re made of the same great rubber and cling foam that our other stamps use, so you know you’ll get crisp, clear results. Try them with paint, ink, or other media!
Our Design Team used them on a huge variety of projects this week for lots of inspiration. Leave comments here and on our Design Team blogs for a chance to win your favorite, we’ll give 3 away. (official rules always here)
