Spring has Sprung!

Spring Mash Up

We’re sharing more of our Spring samples with you today! So much gorgeous inspiration! Our team has definitely done it again!

Our in-house team isn’t too shabby either! We are so lucky to have the super-talented Tammie Wilson working in our Sales Department. She’s an amazing Decorative Painter and she has created some beautiful projects for us. Some of them use our wonderful Spring products.

Take a look at her gorgeous Dutch Tulips box. It features our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Script stamp in the background. These great backgrounds are so wonderful for the painting crowd, they’re just loving them! It’s so easy to apply ink or acrylic paint to the stamp.

Isn’t it beautiful??!! Tammie was even kind enough to write out the directions for us so that we can add it as a project to our website. This was all done with acrylic paints, and her easy instructions make it so much more doable than you would guess. What a lovely gift to make for someone special!

Our team is sharing some wonderful projects this week as well. We know you’ll stop by their blogs and give them some love. And the fabulous Sue Drees from the House-Mouse and Friends Design Team has joined us as well with a wonderful project featuring these Dutch Tulips.

Steam Pumpkin Gears Frame by Debbie Cole

We are adding painting to our Stencil Thursday post because well, we are still having a great time at the Heart of Ohio Tole painting convention. With all of our wonderful stencil we have from Dreamweaver Stencils and Fran’s metal stencils there are plenty to add accents to your painted projects.

Stencils can add wonderful texture in any of your painted decor pieces like Debbie Cole’s Steam Pumpkin Frame shown above. The gears in the background create a fabulous depth and mat the floating painted Steam Pumpkin image amazingly!

Or do you think he’ll branch out into a Decorative Painting frenzy and create some wonderful projects with the latest Stampendous Holiday images? Well our artistic consultant Debbie Cole, CDA, while not a mouse, did just that. She creates some incredible projects for every one of our catalogs, but for our July 2016 Catalog she really surpassed even herself.

We’ll be sharing her projects on our blog all week this week, because it’s the Heart Of Ohio Tole convention in Columbus, Ohio! Stampendous is there with our latest Holiday products and projects. Come see us on the Exhibit Floor. No need for membership to shop, watch painting demonstrations, and learn, learn, learn.
