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!

Gone to the Dogs (and Cats)! – Friday

At Stampendous this week we’re celebrating the wonderful Dogs and Cats in our lives. We hope you’ve been commenting on our posts and our Design Team posts, because we’re giving away one set of our new Laurel Burch Dog Park Stamps and the coordinating Dog Park Cutting Dies this week.  We’ll take comments until Sunday night, then draw a winner on Monday. Tell us about your pets when you comment.

We want to remind you today, that there are lots of greetings and sentiments that are perfect for pairing with our great dog and cat stamps. Here’s a look:

We’ve really enjoyed this week with all of you sharing about your favorite fur people! We thought it would be fun to share with you our owner, Fran Seiford’s, own fur baby, Beaver! He’s a sweetie who loves to climb on the keyboard right while she’s making great art for our stamp images. He also gets to be the stylish model for some of our kitty stamps!

Fran's Cat, Beaver

 

And this is Avonlea, she’s Fran’s “great-niece”, and lives with Fran’s human niece, Anne Smallwood. She’s a curious little thing who plopped right down to have her photo taken when she found out about this blog series.

Avonlea Kitty

 

And our Design Team has one more round of cards to post for our Gone to the Dogs (and Cats)! theme week. Stop by and give them some love:

Gone to the Dogs (and Cats!)

At Stampendous we love our pets, and dog and cat stamps work their way into our releases frequently. Our April Catalog release was no exception, let us introduce you to our newest takes on man’s best friend, and cats, too!

Laurel Burch was extremely fond of both dogs and cats, and she drew them prolifically. We’ve added several of those images as stamps, so you can do the same thing.

The Dog Park Cling Rubber Set with its coordinating cutting dies is so sweet, and the ability to cut them out so easily provides tons of options for great projects. And one lucky winner can receive these two products by commenting on our blog posts this week. Each comment is an entry, so leave us some love! Tell us about your pets in a comment or two!  We’ll take comments all week through Sunday and announce a winner on Monday.  Official Rules

You’ll love some of the darling samples that Fran created for our April Catalog.

These projects are available on our website by searching Dog Park. We’ll share some more of her whimsical samples later in the week.

Our January and April Catalogs also included some great cat/dog images mounted on your choice of wood handles or Stampendous Cling rubber. Here’s a look a the latest offerings – YOU CAN FIND THEM ALL HERE:

We’ll be sharing lots of inspiration over on our Instagram Feed this week. Plus you can find projects featuring all of these stamps on our website projects section. Just click HERE and search Laurel Burch.

For today, we’ve got some fun inspiration from a couple of our Design Team Members! Be sure to leave them some love as well!  See you Friday!

Feline Sentiments of the Day

With all these tabby projects for Kute Kitties week, we can’t possibly finish without a few more words. In fact, there are quite a few words and phrases to say when it comes to cute kitties and they can be found in the Cat Sayings Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

Cat Sayings Perfectly Clear Stamp Set

These sayings are perfect for the entire Stampendous clowder, too. If you’re feline curious about seeing them too, you can go to our posts here, here and here, but we still have more fun with our Pop Up Kitties Stamp Set today on these designer blogs. Purrrrrr.
