Here at Stampendous we are all about Mothers. We know how hard being a mother can be, and how rewarding. We hope that you, and all your chicks, have a super happy Mother’s Day.
Craft together, laugh together, and just have a wonderful time!
If you’re up before the family, or just settling down with your second cup of coffee (or your second mimosa), here’s some fun with chicks to help you enjoy the day. Be sure to join us next week when we will be looking at our Sassy Silhouettes as they hit the City!
Going out into the world with the whole family can be such an adventure! Keeping track of your chicks, is always a challenge as well. With our Everyday Chicks and their handy cutting dies, you can celebrate the victory of getting everyone together for Mother’s Day or just getting out of the house in the morning! Everyday Chicks can do it all!
Check out a few cards by our own Fran Seiford showing the chicks in action. You can click on the picture to visit the project on our website with complete supply lists and instructions.
You’ll notice on these cards that our terrific chicks are designed especially to complement our Greetings Galore Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. This set of greetings has a clean, crisp font that goes perfectly with our fluffy chicks and provides a wonderful amount of versatility when used on its own or with any other stamps!
Our talented Design Team is playing with our chicks this week as well! Please flap on over to their blogs and give them some love.
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 excited to be releasing our newest stamps for Summer 2018 this week! You’ll find them live on our website Friday, March 30. Your local stamp store is placing their order right now, so do check with them on the availability of our newest goodies and be sure to let them know your favorites.
Our Design Team had so much fun with these images, they can’t wait to share with you this week in a little sneak peek! We want to share our favorites, too!
We’re super excited about bringing our Everyday Chicks back to you! This time they have matching dies and so do all their tiny little pieces. It’s a die-lover’s dream! We’ll be highlighting them April 2 – 6th, but we wanted to share a couple of fun samples we included in our April catalog for upcoming holidays.
Let’s see what our Design Team has to share today:
Here’s a quick break from all the holidays! We thought we’d share a lovely, everyday stamp with you today, our beautiful Rose Postcard. This stamp is just wonderful because you can just stamp it, and your background and focal point are already done for you. You can add a little color, you can color it very intricately. It’s so versatile! It’s available in wood mounted or Stampendous Cling Rubber.
We had such a variety of lovely samples made with this product. We wanted to share them with you today. Some of our team shared this earlier, so we’ve just compiled all their posts here for you.
The beautiful Blossoming Woman card created by Fran Seiford is symbolic to how magical and expressive Laurel Burch created her artwork and with our cling stamp set you can customize a Blossoming Woman with your own mom’s unique spirit and expression for a Mother’s Day card!
We have much more Laurel Burch stamps that are perfect for Mother’s Day on our website too! Stop by there for a look-see and find catalog samples for you ideas toward your project for mom, here are just a few from the collection as inspiration starters.
There is still time to create a one-of-a-kind project for mom, and if you like something you see from the gallery above clicking on any photo’s caption will take you to our website for more information. Remember that when you purchase from our website, your order will be fulfilled by a shop closest to you when possible.
It’s Wednesday, and we are celebrating mom by showering her with gratitude add in a few sweet treats too!
Let’s say thank you in a big way with these great stamps in different styles! Thank You Daisies stamp is an all-in-one design, just stamp and color then send! And these small sentiments create a big message for a quick card!
And for all the times our moms prepared delicious meals and desserts for us here are some decadent treats for her too!
We think she’ll love the thoughtfulness of a handmade gift with any of our Mom theme stamps, too. Stop by our website to see more!
Our design team is sharing more mom inspired projects with our newest products from the January and April catalogs. Hop on over to their blogs for more ideas for Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day is just around the corner in the U.S., and there is still time to create a beautiful project for the occasion!
What better way to show appreciation for all that moms do for our family than to make a homemade stamped card, gift or scrapbook memory. We have tons of stamps and stencils worthy of a project for our moms.
Let’s take a look at some of our latest blossom images that are perfect for a card, tag or gift wrapping!
Vintage rose with a postcard backdrop, country pitcher holds a hydrangea bunches, and fresh cut flower bouquets are all fabulous images for a project from mom, we also have a ton more flowers of different styles available in our Flower Garden category of our website, stop by and see them all!
Our talented design team is back again this week sharing their favorite projects to celebrate mom!
This has been a great week of making art, seeing how the design team from Spectrum Noir and our own talented team have created such a great variety of projects. Did you notice our theme week House-Mouse Designs® appear here and there? The gallery for this theme has grown and included here on this post, but first let’s take a look at the stamps that were the inspiration for this theme week.
Isn’t the image of this stamp the truth! Once we start stamping it’s likely to turn into a repeatable moment! House-Mouse Monica has turned into an avid stamper with this paw print stamp.
I always thought there was a special touch to flowers that made them so beautiful and now I’m thinking it’s all because Maxwell has a paintbrush and paint well.
Oh dear, a painting mishap between a paintbrush and tail! This adorable stamp is perfect to send an encouraging message, apology or to scrapbook those messy painting sessions of your children.
Now for the gallery!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful inspiring weekend!
