This set is super cute and just the perfect thing for sending greetings to friends when you’re just thinking about them. The butterflies are all one stamp with the frame for super easy cards, just color and add the greeting of your choice.
Or, if you have some extra time and want to step it up, you can use an oval die to cut out the frame and make a shaker card, then cut an extra butterfly to overlap in style.
We think you’ll love this new set and want to play all Spring with these delightful butterflies.
Going out into the world with the whole family can be such an adventure! Keeping track of your chicks, is always a challenge as well. With our Everyday Chicks and their handy cutting dies, you can celebrate the victory of getting everyone together for Mother’s Day or just getting out of the house in the morning! Everyday Chicks can do it all!
Check out a few cards by our own Fran Seiford showing the chicks in action. You can click on the picture to visit the project on our website with complete supply lists and instructions.
You’ll notice on these cards that our terrific chicks are designed especially to complement our Greetings Galore Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. This set of greetings has a clean, crisp font that goes perfectly with our fluffy chicks and provides a wonderful amount of versatility when used on its own or with any other stamps!
Our talented Design Team is playing with our chicks this week as well! Please flap on over to their blogs and give them some love.
We’re taking time to smell the roses this week, and the poppies and the daisies and flowers and foliage of every sort. Our Designers let us know they had lots left to share with you from our April 2016 Catalog, so we’re making room for all that beauty.
Flowers are one of the most fun images to color with any medium, so they lend themselves particularly well to cardmaking. They’re also very versatile, so you can pair them with any good word set and have a greeting card for just about any occasion. We hope you’ll visit our Designers’ blogs this week, leave them some comments, then take some time to stamp and color some flowers for yourself!
Here are a few more gorgeous cards we received from the inimitable Jennie Lin Black. She does love coloring with those Copic Markers, and flowers are one of her specialties!

One of the things we’re excited about at the Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show is that we can now bring you our very, very favorite white cardstock at a terrific value. Our new Mixed-Media White Paper is a gorgeous, ultra-brilliant, super-white 80lb cover stock that is perfect for any media you enjoy using. It takes alcohol markers beautifully, but also works brilliantly with colored pencils, water colors, acrylic paints, ink refills, embossing and even computer printing. We use it for absolutely everything here in the Stampendous Graphics Department, especially monoprinting with our Creative Palettes. We’re thrilled to be able to offer you a 25 sheet package of 8-1/2″ X 11″ paper for a suggested retail of just $7.99. That’s amazing for a premium paper like this. You’ll just love it – we promise!
Our Mixed Media White Paper will be available on our website January 23, but our wholesale store customers can buy it now. They’re stocking up, so check with your local stamping, scrapbooking or craft store to see if they’ve added it to their shopping list.
Here Fran shows you some favorite projects and techniques using this incredibly versatile paper.
The Craft and Hobby Association Trade show is in full swing, and boy are there some new goodies you’re going to need! If you’re lucky enough to be walking the show floor, be sure to visit Stampendous in Booth #723. Also check out our new acquisition, the fabulous Dreamweaver Stencils in Booth #2342. Such exciting events to start off 2015!
We’ve been peeking our new products to you this week. They’re only available to our wholesale stores right now, but you’ll be able to order them retail on our website beginning January 23. (we have to let them stock up so they can fill your orders from our website!) Start making your shopping list now!
One of our newest innovations is our Pop-Up Card Die Set! Unlike other Pop Up cards, ours features a system of overhanging tabs that add extra dimension to your creations. Fran Seiford shows you how this unique system works.
Pop-Up Die Set
We’ve also created a special Build a Bouquet Stamp Set (with matching Die Set available) that will let you make gorgeous floral Pop-Up cards and gardens full of greetings. The matching dies make it soooooo easy to cut out your flowers. And when you stamp them on monoprinted paper from our Creative Palette, a bountiful bouquet can be yours in just minutes! Here Fran demonstrates how to use these gorgeous blooms!
The adorable friends from House-Mouse Designs® have spent all week decorating the house and decking the halls! They’re ready for Santa to come down the chimney and bring them some treats. We’re sharing some great samples from our July Catalog this week made by our terrific Design Team. Maybe one of them will inspire you to get your holiday decorate on!! You can click on the pictures to see the projects on our website with supply list and instructions.
They’ve decorated their tree! Although it’s a wonder they have any ornaments left after Monica’s Balancing Act!
They’ve put the finishing touches on the Christmas Cookies, although knowing Amanda and Maxwell there might not be any left for Santa!
They’ve wrapped the gifts… uh… well… maybe Maxwell, Monica and Amanda are hoping for a ride in Santa’s Sleigh??
They’ve sung in the Christmas pageant, Mudpie and Monica were the angels!
Mudpie even put out the cookies for Santa! And a note… just to explain.
Finally the stockings are hung by the chimney with care. Maxwell is taking no chances that Santa might miss his! He’s even got a peppermint stick for Old St. Nick. Well… what’s left of one anyway!
We hope you’ve enjoyed our take on Getting Ready for Christmas! We’ve sure had a blast sharing these terrific samples with you! And, of course, we want to close by saying, “Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
This week our Design Team is playing with the beautiful butterfly stamps we released in April. These gorgeous images are already collaged for you. With enough area to be fun to color and enough background to save you heaps of time, they’re a super quick way to get a gloriously textured, layered card. You can cut out the butterfly from a second stamping to add depth, or simply stamp in black over your Creative Palette monoprints for a fast and easy card.
They were kind enough to provide patterned papers for our October Spring themed catalog, and we thought we’d give you a little preview of how gorgeous they are with this week’s blog posts. Our team took a brief break from their catalog deadline to create some beautiful projects using Stampendous Stamps. And we’re going to give away some sheets of Authentique plus a $20 Stampendous Reward Card! (just one prize this week) In case you missed the previous posts, they are here: MONDAY, TUESDAY
So hop on over to these gorgeous blog posts and comment on each one for the chance to win some fantastic goodies.
