Brush Up Your Sentiments

 

We always love having new word stamps! They can really brighten and change up a card even if you’re using a well-loved flower or background, and these new sentiments can really take the card to the next level! They have big open spaces that allow for doodling, coloring, painting, stenciling, paper piecing, and so much more! We know you’re going to love our new Great Big Greetings!! They’re available wood mounted or on Stampendous Cling Rubber!

Love is in the Air

Valentine banner

We’re celebrating LOVE with the rest of the world this week! Valentine’s Day is Wednesday, February 14, and we have so many wonderful images for celebrating! Our Design Team sends their love this week by creating gorgeous projects with our love-ly images. You can always find any of our love images in the Stamps/Valentines Category on our website. You can visit it by clicking on that link or on the banner above.

You can see by our banner that some of our most loving images feature the irrepressible House-Mouse Family! These little mice are always showering one another with love, just like in the image above called Glitter Hearts! In fact, some of the wonderful design team from the House-Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog  (or if you’re need of a steady stream of sweet mice, visit them on Facebook) will be joining us this week to share their Valentine greetings with all of you. Let’s start with them:

Bunny Hoyle

Vickie Y

Christine Craig

Lorraine Aquilina

Sue Drees

And we thought we’d share the Valentine work of the recent winners on the HMFMCB –

Spring Borders Die Set – Part II

Spring Borders Die set

We’re in love with our Spring Borders Die set! If you missed the Monday post, be sure to check it out here! MONDAY

We’re continuing today with an in-depth look at two more of the dies in this set!

The first one is the darling heart cut-out die! This die is designed to cut a “window” in your card’s 5-1/4″ X 4″ or larger, layer. It allows for paper piecing or a lovely peek at the inside of the card. Cutting it out also provides you with lots of little hearts you can use as confetti in your card.

The next die is the Ribbon Threader Die. These darling daisies just beg for a ribbon, twine, or strip of patterned paper to be threaded through their little holes. Such a cute way to add ribbon to a card or project!

Sneak a Peek at Spring!

Now that the chill is hitting the air, and thoughts lovingly turn to Pumpkin Spiced everything, we’re here to give you a sneak peek forward to Spring. Your local stores are stocking their shelves with our new Spring merchandise, and the Stampendous October 2017 Catalog goes live on our website on Friday for all retail customers.

Next week we’ll start our 31 Days of Halloween posts and continue with our Fall, Christmas, and Winter projects and inspiration, but for those of you who plan and craft ahead… Spring has Sprung!

We have lots of favorite products in this new catalog, but our favorite of all is our new Spring Borders Cutting Dies. Our Design Team loved them so much, you’ll see them on almost every inspiring project.  (remember, the links won’t work until after Friday!)

DCP1009 Spring Borders Die SetThese six border dies have you covered for Valentine’s Day, Spring, Mother’s Day, Weddings, Baby Cards, and more! The flower border on the yellow background is perfect for threading a ribbon through, or a strip of patterned paper! The edger on the right with the pink background lines up perfectly with the fancy purple edger to let you make a double edge!

Here are some fun sample borders we cooked up when we were trying them. You can certainly see how fun they’re going to be!

Border Die Samples

Here are just a few of the great samples our team made with them! You’ll see these again later, plus they’re all being loaded to our website with full supply lists and instructions! We bet you can see how “must-have” these border dies are will be! You might want to call your local store now and tell them you’ll need these.

Some of the Design Team are sharing their favorite Sneak Peeks this week, too! We can’t wait for you see all our new Spring Goodness!
