Bonus Watercolor Lesson – Dog Kisses A

We’re still working from home at Stampendous, and we aren’t able to ship the April Perfectly Clear Stamps yet that complement our Watercolor Video Series. So Fran has prepared a few bonus lessons to keep you busy practicing the techniques we’ve learned already.

This week she’s using our super-fun Dog Kisses Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set to practice the background techniques and the blending of the grays and browns she covered previously. You’ll love making these pups look like your own pets.

Some of our retail fulfillers have the Dog Kisses in stock, so if you haven’t picked up this fun set yet, you can order it on our website HERE.  Have fun, enjoy, and keep crafting while staying safe!

CURIOs for the Holidays

 

Curio Rubber Stamps Banner

We are always curious what we’ll get for the holidays. Just like kids, we hope for our favorite toys… stamps! Well this year we’re asking for our stockings to be filled with CURIO Rubber Stamps. They’re so cute, will look so adorable in our stamp room, and will help us with our holiday stamping for years to come!

Today we’re looking at the last of our new CURIO Rubber Stamps, the darling Brown Bear. He just looks like he can’t wait for Santa to come down his chimney! What a cutie!

Sweet CURIO Rubber Stamps for the Holidays

 

Curio Rubber Stamps Banner

 

We’re continuing this week with our sweet CURIO Rubber Stamps. These adorable pieces of displayable art are also beautifully made rubber stamps that will give you a Stampendous Impression Every Time. Made from gorgeous, solid hardwood, they have a full-color, wipe-clean index that will display the image, personally colored by Fran, for years to come through lots of use. The rubber stamp side is deeply etched and closely trimmed.

One of the nicest features of these stamps is the full-color index on top. This is a lovely inspiration starting place for your own coloring. Although, of course, you can color any of these great images how ever your heart desires.

Let’s look at a couple more of the animals today. First up is our Tired Kitty! This sleepy kitten is all ready for Santa’s visit, but I don’t think he’ll be able to stay awake that long. So fun to color, you can color him/her just like your own sweet cat. This would be a darling stocking stuffer for the cat lover in your life.

More CURIO Rubber Stamps for the Holidays

 

Curio Rubber Stamps Banner

Everyone loves the way our new CURIO stamps feel in your hand when you create. They are a gorgeous hard wood that is painted and lacquered with a finish over the colored label to protect and preserve it. These stamps will give you years of beautiful use with wipe-clean ease. And they’re just so darn cute. IF you didn’t check out Frans video, you really should, to get an idea of how big they are and how perfect for a card. It’s down below.

Today we’re featuring our beautiful Poinsettia CURIO. A galvanized bucket holds a bouquet of beautiful poinsettias, Christmas roses, pine cones, and greenery to send your loved ones for the holiday (at a fraction of the cost of sending real flowers! OR together with real flowers!). You’ll love the impression you get from this stamp that is as beautiful to display as it is to use. Look at the gorgeous card Fran made.
