Curios are Here!

Curios Banner

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:

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.

Trees! and Winners!

Trees banner

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!!

Plus we have

WINNERS

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:

 

Beckie Williams

Tracey Magner

Barb MacAskill

 

Congratulations, Winners!!  Email us at submissions@stampendous.com with your mailing address, and we’ll get your Birds and Bones right out to you!

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.

But for those of you who have already got them, Nathalie has posted a fantastic video showing three ways to ink them up! You won’t want to miss this!
