Our team is having fun this week, making handmade paper with kits by Arnold Grummer’s. This is a new activity for some of our team members, and getting a little messy has been really, really fun. We also sent papermaking kits to some of our “guest” bloggers we’ve worked with before. We’re super excited to share with you today what Tina Smith from Cards and Coffee Time made! (click on her name or the picture!)
Tina also made a great video showing how much fun she had with handmade paper! Be sure to check it out. Our team will continue sharing through the 30th.
The new Stampendous Mirror Stamping Plate lets you double your stamp collection and have twice the fun with all your great images. This wonderful tool let’s you create a mirror image of your stamps in order to make reflections, spinner cards, and even just flip an image for a better layout on your project. It comes with directions and tips for tons of uses. Here are some fun projects Fran made.

Have you ever made paper? We’d love to hear about your experiences if you have! At Stampendous, we’ve been making handmade paper for decades, and we even used to distribute the wonderful Arnold Grummer’s Papermaking Kit to our retail stores. We reconnected with this great company at the Creativation show this year. They proposed a fun blog hop! We sent Stampendous products to their team, and they provided papermaking kits to ours.
For the next two weeks, we’ve got some great projects to share with you as the teams play with the wonderful products we’ve exchanged.
Today, check out this beautiful creation by Becky Conley. Click on her name, or the picture to learn more about how she made it!
The Arnold Grummer Team has posted lots of inspiration today:
Stay tuned for lots more from this great collaboration! We’re really excited about how our products work together with great handmade papers. Of course there are prizes! Becky has the details over on her blog post today!
Our new wild stamps really make our heart sing! You’ve seen our new animals with cutting dies, our great backgrounds to put them on, and now we want to share our two new Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets with you. Our Jungle Life and Jungle Greenery sets are so easy to use to expand your wild projects. Take a look at these great sets!
Each of them contains our premium, photopolymer stamps, made in the USA, that work well with so many inks (although we prefer VersaFine by Tsukineko!). They each come with a colored index sheet as well, so you can have a quick coloring guide to get you started.
Our very own Fran Seiford had a lot of fun playing with these great sets! Here are a couple of ideas.
Our designers have had a wild week as well! Check out their blogs to see more wild life!
Our new wild collection in the new April 2019 catalog will leave you roaring with delight and wanting all of our newest products.
We looked at our new wild animal cling rubber stamp and cutting die sets on Tuesday. They are HERE if you missed them. Each of them comes with a new circle window die for your WindowRama cards, shaker cards, or other layered card types.
In addition to the animals we’ve brought out two, new 6″ X 6″ background stamps that will give your wild cards that finished look.
Our Wild Texture is a combination of animal fur patterns that lets you use part of the stamp or the whole thing to create fun backgrounds.
We also brought out a gorgeous Fern Garden stamp for the true, deep jungle look. You’ll find this wonderful background so versatile and the perfect background for your floral, garden, and wild images.
We gave Decorative Painter, Deb Antonick, our new jungle friends and these backgrounds, and she created the most adorable set of four framed canvas pieces featuring the Wild Texture and our sweet new animals. We admit it, we’re in love! Take a look!
We’ll have these projects up on our website very soon!
Be sure to check out our designers with great posts on their blogs today as well –
Stampendous’ new wild collection from our brand new April 2019 catalog will have you running through the jungle, swinging from the trees, and loping across the savannah with a great new crew of animal friends.
The adorable Lion comes with a fun, fern, circle window die for your WindowRama or other card types. It also includes a separate die for cutting out the lion’s face, and a bobble head die to make his face wobble on a cardstock spring. You can use this wobbler on any of our new animal friends. You’ll love playing with this fantastic set. Of course it comes with the lion stamp and cutting die, some wild grass, and a cute greeting! A complete set!
The sweet Elephant never forgets your birthday! He comes with a darling, leafy window for your WindowRama cards, shaker card, or other design. Plus, you get the die for extra leaves to make your card a luscious jungle. You’ll also get the elephant stamp and matching die, plus two greetings!
Our new Monkey is a bundle of fun! He can swing from so many things on your cards or WindowRama dioramas. In his set you’ll receive the monkey cling rubber stamp, a banana, and a greeting. Plus dies for a jungle vine circle window, extra leaves, the banana, and the monkey are included. A great value!
Finally, a tall Giraffe bends down to see you better. With two greetings, the giraffe cling rubber stamp, and a stand of acacia trees, the giraffe is ready to survey the savannah. He also includes an acacia circle die for your WindowRama set, a clouds/bushes die, and the cutting die for the giraffe himself.
These wild new friends have a ton of possibilities, but wait until you see the accessories they’re bringing to the safari! Stay tuned the rest of the week to see lots more jungle fun. Meanwhile, here is a great look at some adorable samples by Stampendous Founder, Fran Seiford! You can click on any of the pictures above to be taken to the product on our website.

We were very excited at Christmas time when our new QSets of Cling Rubber and Cutting Dies were so well-received! These sweet little stamp sets have humorous and whimsical images and sentiments that make creating cards, tags, boxes, and bags easy and fun. The coordinating cutting dies leave a cute, small white border around the images to mimic children’s stickers.
New, everyday designs are here with images stamps for Spring, Summer, friends and fun. We know you’ll have small (and not-so-small) folks somewhere in your life who will love your projects made with these sweet characters!
QSets are a bit different. The image is shown on the carrier sheet instead of on top of the stamp. But they’re super easy to store in your regular, slim storage. Our Thin Stuftainers are the ideal storage containers for these great sets. They also all fit into the WindowRama die set and look great romping through the Meadows Edge. You’ll love how these sets coordinate with just everything!
