Creative Painting – Las Vegas!

Christ Thornton header

We love to let you know when you’ll have a chance to see Stampendous live on the road. And here’s another opportunity. Hard on the heels of CreativeWorld in Germany, we’re headed to the Creative Painting show in Las Vegas, Nevada at the newly remodeled and gorgeous Tropicana Hotel.

We’re extra excited this year because the very talented Chris Thornton is going to be teaching two workshops featuring Stampendous products. And a little bird tells us there a few seats left.

Her first class is a Sponsored Event on Tuesday, February 28th from 9am – 4pm. This gorgeous 12″ X 12″ pallet board with three canvas pieces would be an ideal home decor piece or a very special gift.

Her second class is this AMAZING Steampunk Jingle Bell!! What an incredible decorative piece to make for your home or as a gift. Your experience level with Decorative Painting should be Intermediate to take this class. It’s offered Thursday, March 2 from 6pm – 10pm.

You can find all the details for both classes on the Stampendous website under Mixed Media/Classes and Events or on the Creative Painting Website (vegaspaint.com). Both classes require registration in the Vegas Paint convention in addition to the class fees.

Of course Stampendous will be on the exhibit floor in Booth #411 with tons of demos from the talented Tammie Wilson and bunches of our gorgeous new products just for you. Hope we can see you there!

With dreams of sugary treats soon dancing in our heads and the wonder of being on the nice list or not, we have the perfect stamps to share that we are thinking about it during this season!

Each stamp is designed to create a fabulous background for cards, Christmas scrapbook pages and more, but they are also terrific in sections! Jamie Martin used the candy cane border design in the Peppermints Plenty stamp to add whimsy to her House-Mouse card.

Use either stamp in a repeating pattern like the background papers on Laura Drahozal and Louise Healy’s card above and create a fun greeting using just a section of the stamp as well! These designs are a great match to any of our Christmas theme stamps and stencils!
