Elements of Excitement – and A Winner!

Pinecone Ornament by Kristine Reynolds

The time for Holiday stamping is here! And this year, why not add some Elements of Excitement to your Christmas and holiday creations? Our July Catalog featured a really nice, two-page spread showcasing the Embossing Powders and Glitters that are just so perfect for seasonal glimmer and warmth.

You can see the whole catalog here – JULY 2017 Stampendous Catalog  or for a look at our Elements suggestions, we’ve made a quick PDF you can download here: Elements of Excitement

These sparkly and super dynamic elements are perfect for Fran’s Encrusted Adhesive Technique and Glitzy Adhesive Technique. Both of these techniques allow you to make dynamic cards with a ton of bling and excitement! A perfect example is this great card by Design Team Member Kristine Reynolds. You can click on it to see the project instructions and supplies.

This great card also features one of our brand new elements, Twinkle Glitter! This super cool glitter is ultra shiny and full of random shapes, so the light just bounces off of it in every direction. So lush and fantastic!

And it comes in a really big jar! Bet you’d like to win some… !!! We’ll send three winners their own jar of new Twinkle Glitter. U.S. addresses only, OFFICIAL RULES LIVE HERE. Just leave us a comment below on any post this week and tell us your favorite thing about holiday stamping!

More Peeks! New Products!!

CHA Show Banner

The CHA show floor opens tomorrow for the mega blast of new products in the craft industry! We wish you were here! (if you ARE here, visit us in Booth #723) While it’s not open to the public, we can sure give you a peek at the newest products from Stampendous!

Our Creative Palette Monoprinting plate we released last year has been a HUGE hit! Folks are loving the terrific patterned papers they can print with this versatile tool, plus the fact that they can easily pick it up and transfer the pattern to home decor and other projects. Decorative Painters are thrilled with the way it performs as a palette! It’s just all around a must-have for your studio.

This year we’re thrilled to release two new versions of the Creative Palette. Rounds and Rectangles. Both include new palette shapes and sizes plus images you can use on an acrylic stamp handle to create more patterns and backgrounds. You’ll love them both. Fran has made some terrific videos for you to see the benefits of these new additions to the Creative Palette family!

 

Creative Palette – Rounds

 

Creative Palette – Rectangles

 

Here’s a closer look at some terrific samples using these two palettes! We’ll be sharing LOTS more this weekend from CHA! Be sure that you follow us on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook for all the fun!

Whooooo’s Ready for Halloween?

We are! This week it’s OWL about the owls! We have a study of owls to whoot about this week. Today we have our eye on PenPattern Owl who is designed for coloring in delightful patterns or even create more mesmerizing detail with doodling in pen. You’ll be seeing him popping in here on our blog and on the designers blog all this week and it starts here with this stunning Fran•táge wreath by Fran Seiford!

The owl has been detailed with more pen patterns and framed in a leafy wreath. You are going to love the detail in this wreath (just click the photo to enlarge the view). You should also take a look at this Project Page too, for instructions on how to create one of our own.  It shares some handmade papers created for the die-cut leaves and a list of Essentials that make this wreath glimmer and glisten.

There are two available stamps options for our patterned owl that is available in a local store near you or online store.

Stack Art Challenge – The Finale

Wow, what a week! Hope you’ve been hopping around all the blogs leaving comments so you can maybe win some Stack Art! The prize consists of one Stack Art Kraftboard Kit, one Stack Art Stamp Set and one Stack Art Elements kit. We’ll give three of these prize packages to commenters this week on the participating blogs!

Designers have done so many fantastic things with our Stack Art kraftboard pieces. It’s so fun to see all the possibilities.

Here, Stampendous owner Fran Seiford, has created a tribute to all four seasons using the Stack Art Regal Bird Kit and the Tree Poem Stamp. Punching holes and wiring the kraftboard pieces together, this simple but dynamic piece was easy to assemble.

In a similar project, Fran used our Floral Lady to create a lovely Spring themed Triptych. Assembled with large jump rings fashioned of wired.

Finally a little Snow Fun is just as easy to make. Here brads are placed through the holes and then wired together in the back. This features our Bird Knit Hat, Sweet Snowgirl, and Winter Wonderland stamps.
