Keep On Crafting On! From Home!

Stampendous is still working from home where possible, and our Design Team is still creating wonderful projects for your inspiration.

We can’t fill orders from our warehouse, right now, but the retail stores that fill our website orders are still working this week to fill the orders they can.

If we can’t fill your whole order, you’ll receive an email to that effect. We hope you’ll reorder the delayed items after we have been able to return! We look forward to getting back to our warehouse, filling your orders, and offering you new products from Stampendous.

Meanwhile, check out the latest inspiration from our team!!

Fran has released a new video in her Watercolor Series. Lesson 108 features our March Perfectly Clear Stamps designed for these lessons and more.

Our Design Team has continued to share with our latest products, we’d love for you to visit their blogs and leave them some encouragement. You can help us, and our team, by adding their projects to your Pinterest boards, sharing them on Facebook, Twitter, and, as always, by throwing a like to their posts on those social media platforms. This is a time where we do, at least, have some extra moments to share our favorite projects with others. Thank you for helping us do this.
