Nautical Anchor by Dee Adams

This week has been about coastline views and activities on the shore but next week be on the lookout for more treasure, ye mateys! Until then let’s anchor aweigh with more fantastic sea and beach themed stamps!

SSC1261 Nautical Anchor Perfectly Clear Stamp Set

We had two maritime Perfectly Clear Stamp Set in our April 2017 catalog. We shared Nautical Treasures last week to you in this post and today is Nautical Anchor with wonderful phrases and images for a masculine style card or project.  Here are some fabulous projects from our design team using this set perfect for your seafaring friends and family!

And our week isn’t complete without the beloved characters of House-Mouse Designs and their playful side to getting some sunshine in their day!

We have a great little sentiment that goes well with these sunbathing mice or anytime you want to add a smile to someone’s day.

Part of Your World 3: Warm on the Sand

SSCP110 Whisper Friends Beach Day Perfectly Clear Stamp Set

What would I pay, To spend a day, Warm on the sand!

We might have a view of sailboats and surfers, seashells and beach huts, too with Pink Your Life stamps by artist Nicoletta Zanella.

For a day at the beach, Nicoletta provides all that is necessary to enjoy the ocean and stay cozy on the shore in our Beach Day Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.  Check out the versatility with these stamps from our designer’s projects that go from pastels to grunge hues!

Assemble your scene from Beach Day or make it easier with these stamps, too!

Enjoy a stroll on the beach, a sunset nap or catch a wave in these stamps sized just right for a greeting card. Or add these fun beach activities to a scrapbook page, as table decor or a party theme invitation!

Accent any shore with the look of real sand using our Golden Sand Embossing Enamel! Kristine used it on her Beach Girl (below) and Beach Day (shown above) cards for a great effect. Find our embossing powder in a single jar or in a 5-Jar Beach kit in the Opaque Embossing Powders category of our website.

We have more great beach inspiration from our designers today with Pink Your Life!

Part of Your World 3: Up Where They Walk

Up where they walk, up where they run, Up where they stay all day in the sun!

It is a beautiful stroll along the sandy shore this week with our breathtaking beach theme stamps, dies, and stencils!

The first to light the way is Fran Seiford’s Cling Build A Lighthouse Stamp Set and matching Build A Lighthouse Die Set. Customize the lighthouse with the free template included in the stamp set, then add it to a rocky or sandy beach scene with coordinating dies.

Here are a few fantastic ideas from Fran Seiford that we know will spark some inspiration. The possibilities are endless!

All these great samples can be viewed in our video along with ideas and tips using the stamps, dies, and free template!

There is more to come this week with Fran’s designs, Pink Your Life, and House-Mouse Designs® collection too! We have a few of our designer’s sharing some of their beach theme projects today.

Part of Your World 1: Look at this Stuff!

Isn’t it Neat?
Wouldn’t you say our collection’s complete?

We’ve been swimming with mermaids this week in our Part of Your World 1 series. Be sure to join us next week for Part of Your World 2: Under the Sea!

Today we’re sharing one of our most popular stamps of all time! Our Mermaid stamp has been with us since January 2011, and she’s still one of our best sellers.

P151 Mermaid Stamp

She’s been featured in some of the biggest craft stores, like Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics, and she’s been offered by most of our independent retailers as well. She’s been the focus of tons of wonderful projects like the ones below: (click on them to make them larger)

 

But the pièce de résistance, we’re sure you’ll agree, is this amazing project by Design Team Alumni Suzanne Czosek! This project is our all-time most pinned project on Pinterest! It’s been shared and pinned to boards almost 8,000 times! Isn’t it luscious, with all that Halo Glitter, and Color Fragments, and so much more goodness! It’s really one of our favorites ever!

Do you have a sample you’ve made with our beautiful Mermaid Stamp? We’d love to see it! Feel free to post it on social media and tag us with #Stampendous or @Stampendous. Or post it on our Stampendous Facebook Group, our Stampendous Flickr Group, or email us at submissions@stampendous.com.  You can also upload a Stampendous project of your own at any time at https://www.stampendous.com. On the front page of our site you’ll see a place to Submit Your Project.

Part of Your World 1: Mermaids and More

We’ve been sharing some fun with mermaids this week! Stampendous is lucky to be licensing the wonderful artwork of Laurel Burch, and we were especially excited to add her Mermaid Fishes Cling Rubber Stamp Set and Cutting Dies to our lineup this April. (Check out our whole April Catalog HERE)

We have so much inspiration to share with you using this wonderful stamp set! Check out all the ideas below. Feel free to click on any of the images to see it larger.

 

Still more exciting is this gorgeous sample that Fran Seiford, Stampendous Owner and Founder, made with her fun and dynamic Encrusted Adhesive Technique!

 

This gorgeous card looks so lush and complex, but it’s so super-easy to make! Just cut your cardstock, stamp, color and die cut your mermaid and her fish friends, then grab a panel of your favorite double-sided adhesive sheets. We carry two kinds, Sticky Panels and the Dreamweaver Double-Sided Mounting Paper. Place your panel down on your cardstock. Peel off the protective sheet, and place your die cut images. Then fill in the space with color fragments, glitters, and the embossing powders/enamels of your choice. Heat to set, and MAGIC!  Want to see it in action? Check out the video below.

Part of Your World 1: Mermaids and Friends

Mermaids are really hot right now! You see them everywhere you shop. We’re lucky enough to have some of the coolest mermaids in town.

In addition to the wonderful Mermaid Fishes Set from artist Laurel Burch that we introduced Monday, we still have our awesome Mermaid Friends set.

CRS5088 Mermaids Cling Stamp Set and DCS5088 Mermaids Die Set

Like most of our Cling Rubber Stamp Sets with coordinating Cutting Dies, this is a Limited Edition.  If you’ve been waiting to add this gorgeous mermaid, staring into a beautiful pearl, surrounded by her fun, eager friends, to your collection, you might not want to wait much longer. Take a look at just some of the great inspiration using this wonderful set. You can see that all the pieces work seamlessly together, and they all shine separately as well! (And they all look amazing with those Graphic45 papers! Thanks G45!) You can click on an image to see it full sized.

 

Loving our Mermaid and Friends??? We sure do! Take a moment or two to watch Fran make some of these gorgeous cards!

We’ll be sharing lots of other ideas for her this week. Why not get your own and color along! We’d love to sea your projects! (Sea what we did there?) You can find this great set at your favorite stamp retailer or on our website, where your orders are fulfilled by independent, local stamp stores.  You can share projects on our Facebook Group, our Flickr Group, or email them to submissions@stampendous.com and we’ll share them for you!  You can also check out our Laurel Burch by Stampendous Pinterest Board for loads of inspiration!  (If you create something and post it online, be sure to let us know so we can pin it here!)
