We’re in love with our new Curios stamps and their whimsical, colorful presence in our office and our craft area! They not only make us smile with their fun shapes and colors, they inspire us with card and project ideas all day! By the end of the day we’re brimming with great ideas for using them when we get home. It’s been a very fun experience. These little pops of home decor with their premium quality stamps on the back are just delightful.
Here’s a closeup look at a few more of these darling stamps:
Our design team has had some great fun integrating them into their crafting and their workspace as well. Take a look:
The holidays are in full swing, and there’s nothing more festive than our new Laurel Burch images for this holiday season! We really love the wonderful Laurel Burch Heavenly Holiday Cling Rubber Stamps and Dies Set, so we’ll give away three of them this week to lucky commenters on our blog posts and those of our designers! This set has 6 Cling Rubber stamps and 2 Precision Cutting Dies so you can make all kinds of amazing cards, tags and Christmas ornaments this year!
Here are some wonderful examples of great projects we made using this super versatile set!
And our wonderful Design Team is sharing their great projects this week, too! Be sure to leave some comments for them. We’d also really love it if you could share some of our Laurel Burch Holiday Cheer on your social media as well. Laurel has lots of fans, worldwide, that you might not think of because they don’t stamp. Her images are so fun to color, and with the dies they’re so easy to cut out, that folks all over will want to see these great ideas.
We love our terrific trees here at Stampendous! On MONDAY we took a look at Christmas Trees. Today let’s take a look at the Halloween and Fall side of things! Trees are so great for every season! The team has more Christmas trees for you at the bottom of this post. The wood stamps below are also available in Cling Rubber!
Some Autumn Options:
Of course we have a beautiful array of Fall/Tree/Leaf Stencils as well! You can check them all out HERE.
And, naturally, those darling mice from House-Mouse Designs® are hanging out in the trees as well!
Let’s see what our Design Team has for us today! Trees!!
Here at Stampendous some of the most popular images are those of flora! We have so many flowers and trees and other garden elements, and they are all really popular with our fans. This week we thought we’d take a look at the trees of Stampendous. Christmas Trees, Haunted Trees, Garden Trees, Spring Trees, Stencil Trees, Whimsical Trees… as one designer said, “We could do a whole month!”
Scenic stamping has been popular for decades, and with all of today’s coloring options, it’s more popular than ever. Fran always tries to design our trees so that no masking will be needed for you to work it into your scenic stamping. We hope you’ll enjoy this little walk in the woods! Do let us know how you feel about trees!
Let’s start by sharing with you some of the Christmas Tree Stamps we have. That season is still sneaking up on all of us… sneak… sneak… have you been naughty or nice? We’ll start with the tree!
Let’s see what our Design Team has for us today! Trees!!
from last week’s Get Your “Boo” on giveaway. Thanks everyone for counting up our colored words. Purple was a bit problematic since many of your browsers show the design team links in purple after you’ve viewed them. So your Purple count could have been anywhere from 6 t0 41. We really meant just the spooky words, so we’re not going to let that influence us. We threw everyone in the drawing that bothered to give us some numbers. Our three US winners are:
Congratulations, Winners!! Email us at email@example.com with your mailing address, and we’ll get your Birds and Bones right out to you!
The season of SCARY is coming our way!!! What will you stamp for HALLOWEEN Day??!! We’ve got lots of choices, and this final option comes to us from
mixed media artist Andy Skinner who is always working up something SPOOKY. Take a look at his latest offering, Birds and Bones.
That large image on the left is a bird skull…. ewwwww… cooooool!!! And wait until you see the results!
Wow, right??!! Let’s have a look at the other, available Andy Skinner stamp sets. They’re all wonderful for adding a touch of creepy to your Halloween life or even your everyday stamping! You can find all of Andy’s wonderful images on our website HERE.
Would you like to get your CREEPY on with your very own set of Birds and Bones??? Yeah, we thought you might! So here’s what you need to do. Visit all of our posts from this week. MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, and today, of course. Then leave a comment below telling us how many words were PURPLE,how many words were LIMEGREEN, and how many words were ORANGE. (yes, including the ones in that sentence, right there) AND be sure to tell us if you have a U.S. Mailing address because only US addresses are eligible for our contests. (Official Rules live HERE)
And while you’re hopping around, winning and such, stop by our Design Team posts and tell them how much you love their HALLOWEEN stamping! So much fun from such talented folks!
Winter birds have been fluttering through our week of posts and it continues on with our metal stencil designs. Here are a pair of Chickadees to cheer up someone this winter and beautiful sample cards by Louise Healy and Laura Drahozal, both with supply lists and instructions, click on the captions to see them.
We love these bird stencils each with a unique perch that makes a great scene for cards, scrapbook pages, and many more possibilities.
And with any stencil or stamp you can change the colors to create tons of different birds. Louise Healy changed the color to blue when she used the Cardinal stencil and turned it into a Blue Jay! Use red for a common Cardinal or any other color combination of a crested bird.
A few feathered friends have a glittery and shimmery home in our featured projects for today’s post. Shaved Ice on Dreamweaver Regular Paste is a great festive addition to this Winter Tweet Birdhouse created by Decorative Artist and instructor Debbie Cole.
All you need is a sticky base and elements that catch the light in a room to add glitz to your projects. Here is a beautiful burst of shimmer and glitter from Spoonful of Silver and Spoonful of Snow used on a Sticky Panels sheet for a home base to Fran’s festive bluebird card.
Stop by the projects earlier this week from our design team for ideas and inspiration with our tweet set of products. We’ll see you tomorrow with more inspiration to our Winter Tweets week.
Our winter birds are getting a spotlight this week with great anticipation for colder weather projects, but Fran’s Cling Winter Tweets Stamps Set are so versatile they create a variety of friendly feathered friends.
