New Gift Card Wallet Dies

Gift Card Wallet Banner

Our new Gift Card Wallet Die Set has so many possibilities. We cannot wait to see what you create with it.

Gift cards are often the present of choice for your gift recipients. They love doing the shopping and getting exactly what they want. But sometimes a gift card doesn’t seem like much of a present to the giver. The new Gift Card Wallet Die makes each gift card a present and a presentation that will be remembered.

In a new video, Fran shares our wonderful Gift Card Wallet and the other coordinating Cutting Dies and Perfectly Clear stamps that make gifting so much fun. More options are on the way for the Holidays in July! This die set will become a must-have in your collection. It’s not on our website yet, but you can find it at your favorite, local stamp store, and on many online places that sell Stampendous Products. The links to all the products are in the video description.

Fran’s Watercolor Series Continues

Featuring three new stamp sets full of see-through objects for you to practice this technique, they also feature everyday and special occasion greetings for making great cards for your friends. They can all be found on the Watercolor tab on our website.

Happy Nurse’s Day!

May 6 is National Nurse’s Day and we wanted to say Thank You to the dedicated folks doing this really difficult job. Such caring and thoughtful workers deserve some Mousey Love and our House-Mouse friends have just the love they deserve. (Aren’t they looking sweet? Ellen drew little masks on them!)

We have several House-Mouse Designs® stamps perfect for honoring your favorite healthcare workers, or just for saying “Hope you Feel Better” to friends and family.

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.

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!
