Beautiful Birthdays

Birthday bonanza laurel burch

We’re celebrating our newest images for  BIRTHDAYS  here on the Stampendous Blog this week. We showed you some fun inspiration in Monday’s Post, and we’ve got still more today. Today we’ll take a closer look at the wonderful images for encouraging birthday cards from the collection in our April Catalog.

Our marvelous Laurel Burch Collection features so many great images for uplifting spirits and making people celebrate. Here are some fabulous choices for your greetings. The Cling Blossoms comes with a free template/stencil for masking and coloring your flowers, and it has available matching cutting dies. The individual Laurel Burch images are available in wood and cling rubber mounted. And, of course, our Perfectly Clear Stamps are top quality, as always. For getting that classic, Laurel Burch look when coloring your images, check out our Coloring Chart which you can download for free.

 

We know you’ll want to pick up some of these great images, especially with our Free Shipping offer, good through August. You know, the one where your shipping is free if you order $50 or more at www.stampendous.com with Promo Code BLG717!

Superstar Birthday Wrap-up

Our superstar birthday theme is wrapping up today, but not without a bit of decorative fanfare! Any celebration needs decorations and presents, right?

Check out these stamps to gather up balloons, gifts and party favors to add to your celebration projects.

We couldn’t resist adding in these little superstar mice to add to the theme. They sure know how to have fun!

Sweet Superstar Birthdays!

If you are wondering what goes with Superstar birthdays, we have the answer, desserts! After all, a party isn’t a party without cake, and we have plenty to choose between our stamps and stencils.

The most recent of our sweet stamp treats are the Dessert Display and Cupcake Tiers available in both wood mount and cling mount (shown below) rubber stamps.

Hope you had a happy and safe 4th of July! Most of us here at Stampendous had BBQs with our families and watched the fireworks to celebrate our independence! We wouldn’t be able to do so without the help of our heroes, the soldiers. Now that July 4 has passed, we have ended the Cards for Heroes card drive, but if you forgot about our deadline and wish to participate, you can send your cards directly to Cards for Heroes. Get more info by clicking here.

We would like to thank everyone who participated! We got some really great cards! Here’s a photo of some of our favorites:
