Feline Sentiments of the Day

With all these tabby projects for Kute Kitties week, we can’t possibly finish without a few more words. In fact, there are quite a few words and phrases to say when it comes to cute kitties and they can be found in the Cat Sayings Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

These sayings are perfect for the entire Stampendous clowder, too. If you’re feline curious about seeing them too, you can go to our posts here, here and here, but we still have more fun with our Pop Up Kitties Stamp Set today on these designer blogs. Purrrrrr.

This week’s projects in review!

Spark Up Your Life

Best friends to the very end, Screwloose N Sparky are quite a pair and so expressive for robots. From the Perfectly Clear Stamp Set you can give them a voice with great robot sayings and even a robot-style heartbeat like Screwloose is sporting on this portrait stamp here.

Sparky is such a happy bot-pup that his tail never stops wagging even when the rest of him is perfectly still as on this namesake rubber stamp.

The designers this week did an amazing job on all their projects, bringing out all things robot themed and creating with simple and fun ideas. Wendy Price was so kind to let us post one of her great projects here on the blog using the Screwloose and Sparky Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

Now those are some cute robots! There are even more to be seen in today’s line up on designer blogs. We hope you enjoy your mini Bot-hop today and have a great weekend!

Robot Fun

We’re having fun this week with some Screwy Pals who are geared up to produce some smiles on your next project. I think they will be a big hit!

Fran has a rusty theme geared up with Spoonful of Rust for a great project. Check it out, plus a video on ways to use our Spoonful Kits.

This engineered robot was posted by Lea Kimmel during the Artist Trading Block collaboration and we just love how she created a home for Sparky. That’s one happy dog in that window there.

There are many more pictures of this project on Lea’s blog, but if you missed out on our collaboration you can click the caption to see this robot from all sides. We also made a special gallery page that includes projects from the entire hop that we know you’ll enjoy seeing.

For today, though, we have some super talented designer’s posting projects to spark your mojo!

It’s a week of robot fun with our newest family members, Screwloose and Sparky. When they get together there is sure to be some fun, but watch out it can get quite explosive!

Look at this amazing frame by artist consultant and decorative painter, Debbie Cole. She’s made this frame for a special someone, constructing it perfectly right down to the last screw and bolt.

Here are some projects that will spark some great ideas!

Doilies, Tendrils and Miniatures, Oh My!

We’re wrapping up Swirls and Flourishes week with a swoosh of stamps! Once we’ve seen the main attraction stamps there are mini-me’s hiding out among other stamps. We keep our fans equipped with swishes and flourishes of all kinds! Here’s a few page numbers to get you started… 17, 29,

Lacy Ovals is the perfect pairing to our tea time collection stamps and will fill in the gaps in any background for cards or scrapbooking and even the delicate side of mixed media.

See the fantastic lacy design in Tenia Nelson’s card. Just love how it stands out against the dark background of her card.

Variety is the spice of life so we have Elegant Scroll stamp and Fall Tendril for a choice to create great looking accents on your projects.

Alumni design team member Suzanne Czosek created this stunning card with our Zinnia stamp accentuated with Fall Tendril. Absolutely stunning!

There is also a trio of Elegant Borders as a set to create stunning invitations, scrapbook pages or shabby chic mixed media projects.

Here’s a shabby chic card designed by alumni Lynn Mercurio highlighting our Blossom Spray with one of the stamps from Elegant Borders. We love this card so much we would share it every week if we could.

There are so many more swirls and flourishes… we could go on for pages and pages, so if you like a treasure hunt you can start looking through our January catalog and find image sets that include some of Fran’s delightful accent stamps. Here are a few page numbers to get you started… 17, 29, 20, 30 and 31.

And now here are more amazing designer projects to see.

Fran’s CHA Demos straight to you!

CHA Show Banner

CHA is a crazy time. There’s so much going on, and dozens of industry contacts must be made in just a few days in order to bring you the great product collaborations we bring you here at Stampendous. In the frenzy we didn’t tape Fran’s booth demos at CHA because she was always surrounded by eager customers, and we knew we could recreate them when we got home. But we didn’t want you to miss them!!

First, Fran did a quick make and take for the customers who were excited about her new PopUp Card Die Set. Folks had so much fun choosing from the gorgeous, huge tray of flowers and vases we prepared from our new Build A Bouquet stamp and die sets. Yummy!!!

Fran’s Pop Up Die Set Demonstration

Fran also got folks playing with making some cool jewelry. We co-sponsored a workshop at CHA with the folks from ICE Resin and Imagine Crafts. What a fun time! Wish you could have been there. We do have a quick overview for you though, so you can see the fun creations Fran has been making with the Radiant Neon Inks, our Eclectic Charms Perfectly Clear Stamps Set, and bezels and resin from ICE Resin.

Fran’s Jewelry Class with ICE Resin and Imagine Crafts

We hope you enjoy both of these demos! Our new January products offer so many fun options for crafting, we can’t wait to see what you make! Be sure to visit our website at www.stampendous.com on January 23 when these items are available for retail sale. Many of them are available at your local stamping and scrapbook store now! You can find a store near you using our Store Locator.
