Peeking Pals, Fun and Frolic

Fran’s Watercolor Series will resume this Friday with some new stamp sets that showcase the new techniques she’s ready to show you! She has been sharing some Bonus Lessons in the interim, however, and we featured our Peeking Pals Perfectly Clear Stamps in her lesson last Friday. We know you’ll enjoy her whimsical paintings of these darling animals and want to try some yourself! Check out her latest videos, then get ready to resume lessons on Friday!

Wine a Little, You’ll Feel Better

For our January release, Fran created several Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets that include a frame image with sentiments that fit into the frame for easy, beautiful cards. One of those is our lovely Wine Frame. A beautiful, and sometimes funny, way to invite your friends to join you for a virtual glass of something from grape juice to Cabernet.

Wine Frame Stamp Set Our Design Team had a great time sharing with this fun stamp set. Let’s take a look at what they made.

Bonus Watercolor Lesson – Dog Kisses B

Fran is back this week with even more fun using our Dog Kisses Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. This week we ask… do you know how to mask??

Everyone is wearing masks and our puppers are no exception. Fran made sweet little masks for them so they can share the joys of togetherness.

And for you, she made a great new video showing how to mask these darling dogs into piles of puppy fun! You’ll love this great technique, and watercoloring them with Fran is such a bonus. Take a look –

We hope you enjoy these fun videos. Look for more in the coming weeks. You can click on an image below to scroll or swipe through larger sized pictures. Enjoy!

Give us COFFEE!

Find yourself drinking extra coffee these days? It’s so comforting and warm, we’ve been enjoying it and other hot drinks a lot this Spring. Our great new Coffee Frame Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set is perfect for sending coffee-inspired wishes to a friend. But it could easily be used to spread the joys of tea or hot chocolate, too. Pour another cup and join us!

This set has a great coffee cup and frame as one stamp. You can put any of the included greetings into the frame, or use a greeting of your own. Of course you can cut out the coffee cup shape and use it by itself on a card, as we’ve done here. This card features our gorgeous Peridot PEARLustre Embossing Powder on the background!

Or use the frame as a convenient shape for a shaker card! This one also features Doodles Paper Playground’s Pumpkin Spice Blend. So blingy and shakeable! Garnet PEARLustre Embossing Powder is used on the background of this card.

Our Design Team has been sharing cards with this great coffee frame all week! Check out their posts and leave them some sweet comments.

Bonus Watercolor Lesson – Dog Kisses A

We’re still working from home at Stampendous, and we aren’t able to ship the April Perfectly Clear Stamps yet that complement our Watercolor Video Series. So Fran has prepared a few bonus lessons to keep you busy practicing the techniques we’ve learned already.

This week she’s using our super-fun Dog Kisses Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set to practice the background techniques and the blending of the grays and browns she covered previously. You’ll love making these pups look like your own pets.

Some of our retail fulfillers have the Dog Kisses in stock, so if you haven’t picked up this fun set yet, you can order it on our website HERE.  Have fun, enjoy, and keep crafting while staying safe!

 

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.
