Snow Many Friends, Snow Much Time

It has been a great week of building new fantastic projects with our design team using the Build A Snowman Perfectly Clear Set and the ideas are still coming like this project from the archives by Jennifer Dove.

This is the sweetest pendant using the three faces from Build A Snowman set. Click on the picture or caption to find out how Jennifer made this beauty.

The Build A Snowman stamp set combines well with our other snowman stamps to create a countryside dotted with our snow buddies. Here are a few stamps linked to their spot on our store and a great project to inspire.

These snowman friends are bundled up for winter! Send a snowy holiday greeting this Christmas with these buddies, or embellish your favorite Winter scrapbook page.

Did you miss out some of the projects? Hop back to Monday where we show our snowman-building stamp set, Wednesday with plenty of glittery ways to create snow and snowflakes, and Thursday on some snow play with  Dreamweaver Stencils.

Gathering All Snowflakes

At Stampendous we believe it’s not a finished project unless it sparkles and this week’s Build a Snowman theme is the perfect companion for our snowy Essentials products. Be on the lookout for projects made with these products while you are hopping around our design teams blogs.  If you missed seeing projects earlier this week then hop on over to Monday’s post.

Our newest release in July has a 3-D embossing powder with the essence of snow captured because it sparkles and when heated it turns puffy like snow!

It’s such a fantastic way to create large puffy snowflakes! Here’s a card by Laura Drahozal that uses Snowflake Sky Background stamp with Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder and our beautiful Antler Snowflake Stencil covered with Crystal Glitter as the main focus. You can check our her project on our website for all the details.

We have three ways to mix up some snow for your projects! Create a blue wintry affect that is all aglitter. The Frantage Winter Micro Glitter Kit will work with any adhesive and great with our Sticky Panels adhesive sheets.  Build up some fantastic snow drifts with the encrusted jewel technique using our all white embossing enamels and essentials kit of the same name. If it is easy you need then Spoonful of Snow with it’s premix of enamels, glitter and shaved ice are the product for you! Three fabulous snow building kits ready for your snow card or scrapbook page.

Our designers have been building up snowman projects with glitter, enamels and more for this week, so let’s go check what they have for us today!

Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?

Come on, let’s play!  It seems like we haven’t seen our snow buddies in a while so we thought it would be a great time to create with them again.  Build A Snowman Perfectly Clear Stamps Set is our winter buddies building kit when snow isn’t in the weather forecast, so let’s have fun building a few snowmen to get a jump on a few winter card and scrapbook projects. The design team has their mittens on and shaping up some snowball creations for this week and we can’t wait for the fun to begin.

We’ll be back on Wednesday with ways to accessorize these snow buddies, or snowmen, for their wintry debut.

Coasting By With Memories

We are enjoying the last days of summer this week with our mischievous mice theme. During this time of year there are vacations and celebrations that any of the House-Mouse stamps would help set the stage for your handmade card and scrapbook projects.

We can imagine this Teacup Sailing stamp would be great used on so many different water themed scrapbook pages.  Amanda, Muzzy and Mudpie have expertly set sail for any kind of trip even if it’s only in the kitchen sink!

Here is a sweet sailing birthday card for those seafaring folks in your life. Jennie Lin Black created a beautiful floral color theme and, wow, we love the teacup reflections, too!  More details about this card can be found on our website by clicking on the image or caption below it. By the way of sailing vessels, that the sentiment on Jennie’s card is from the Mice Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamps Set that happens to have another cute mousey sailor with snug hull boat.

DREAMing of Mousey Mischief, etc.

EEEK! Mice have been invading the Stampendous blog all this week, and today they’re running rampant with Dreamweaver as well! Of course, we’re referring to our favorite House Mouse Designs® which are perfectly paired with Dreamweaver backgrounds and even embossing paste. As an example, here is Kristine Reynold’s “Potted Mouse”, using the perfect coordinating background… the Dreamweaver Black-eyed Susans stencil, paste-embossed, and ink-stenciled on top.

Mousey Adventures

Welcome back to our week of mousey mischief and the crew of House-Mouse characters. Amanda, Maxwell, Mudpie and Monica are hanging around together for some adventures in crafts and leisure that are sure to be fun.

This foursome spotted bright colored beads and decided to take up the art of jewelry design.

Just look at the colorful choices of jewelry in this card by Kristine Reynolds. The beautiful bead-like pattern paper on her card was done with a Dreamweaver stencil embossed then distressed on coordinating paper. Find out more about the supplies and instructions for Kristine’s card project on our website.

All four mice find warmth in the pockets of hanging jeans on the clothesline after an acrobatic effort to get to them. I’m guessing it’s a great spot to rest with a bird’s eye view to their next adventure.

Here’s a great card for a friend by Amy Hurley-Purdie with amazing realistic coloring on the jeans and she added an encouraging sentiment from the Forest Sayings Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.

The Instigator Mouse

If you know about House-Mouse Designs then you know the rabble-rouser in the group. He is at every gathering of mischief makers, but this mouse has more genuine motives to bring them all together as well, like taking photos of family and friends.

Maxwell and his set up for a perfect picture is Operation See Cheese instead of the usual say cheese tactic. I wonder how long the nibble of cheese will last before someone snatches it away for a snack. I hope he brought enough to share!

Jennie Lin Black created a centered focus on Maxwell rising to new heights with his cheese plan. What a fabulous job and another fantastic sentiment to go along with this beautifully colored image from Happy Greetings Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.

It is certain we will be seeing more of our mischief leader Maxwell this week and around some more today on these designer’s projects —

Getting Into Mousey Mischief

It’s going to be a week of summer mischief with House-Mouse Designs stamps from our April 2015 catalog. These mice are quite resourceful and creative when left to their own devices and our design team have some amazing projects to show for it. Join us as we capture Maxwell, Amanda, Mudpie and Monica creating a little mousey mischief.

Here’s the group resting with a prize slice of watermelon with full tummies and smiling from their feast. Mudpie is having a little fun spitting seeds no doubt waiting until he’s made room for another bite of watermelon.

Falling Into House-Mouse Fun

Create Fall week is coming to a finish with a visit from some furry friends and their own twist on the theme. Our fall-themed House-Mouse Designs® collection is growing by two with these new stamps and it seems they are falling for fall.

These four friends are taking turns in their own mousey version of paragliding for some real Fall fun. They make any adventure look like fun!

There are two more stamps already in our fall House-Mouse Design collection that would make a great card set or framed art decor.

You can create oodles of fall projects by adding colorful leaves with Jumbo Cling Rubber Leaves or Cling PenPattern Leaves and cut out with the coordinating Leaves Die Set. They are fantastic as part of your fall decor and even help frame your photos during the fall season!

As our House-Mouse friends would have it, their adventure continues next week with Mousey Mischief stamps so come back and see us next week! Until then let’s hop on over to these designer projects for some fall-abulous projects —

Feeling confused? Here it is, the beginning of August, and kids are going back to school. Wasn’t that supposed to happen in the fall? Oh, well, if they want to skip summer and go directly to fall, than we are right there with them. Cool, crisp days. Pumpkin lattés. Leaves changing. Yep. We’re all over that on the Stampendous/Dreamweaver  team. Just check them out:
