We love to let you know when you’ll have a chance to see Stampendous live on the road. And here’s another opportunity. Hard on the heels of CreativeWorld in Germany, we’re headed to the Creative Painting show in Las Vegas, Nevada at the newly remodeled and gorgeous Tropicana Hotel.

We’re extra excited this year because the very talented Chris Thornton is going to be teaching two workshops featuring Stampendous products. And a little bird tells us there a few seats left.


Her first class is a Sponsored Event on Tuesday, February 28th from 9am – 4pm. This gorgeous 12″ X 12″ pallet board with three canvas pieces would be an ideal home decor piece or a very special gift.



Her second class is this AMAZING Steampunk Jingle Bell!! What an incredible decorative piece to make for your home or as a gift. Your experience level with Decorative Painting should be Intermediate to take this class. It’s offered Thursday, March 2 from 6pm – 10pm.

You can find all the details for both classes on the Stampendous website under Mixed Media/Classes and Events or on the Creative Painting Website ( Both classes require registration in the Vegas Paint convention in addition to the class fees.

Of course Stampendous will be on the exhibit floor in Booth #411 with tons of demos from the talented Tammie Wilson and bunches of our gorgeous new products just for you. Hope we can see you there!

Flock & Father’s Day

As we prepare to honor our fathers this weekend, we’ve been on the look out for some fun Father’s Day projects on our favorite blogs. Kimberly Crawford has posted some fabulous gifts for our favorite guy on her blog, we know you’ll love these. But upon surfing Kimberly’s blog we discovered that she’s done a tutorial for one of our favorite products, too! We love using our Fuzzy Flock™ with a glue pen, our Class A’Peel™ stickers, or more recently on Thermo Web’s Peel ‘N Stick, but Kimberly has managed to make a success of it with Tsukineko’s Glue Pad. A feat we’ve yet to master. Be sure and check out her tutorial for instructions.

Speaking of Fuzzy Flock, if you’d like a hands on experience with this terrific product and you’re in the Florida area this summer, you might want to find yourself at the Craft and Hobby Association’s first ever Craft SuperShow for consumers. Stampendous will be offering a class for consumers at this show on Friday, July 31. We’d love to see you there! You can get lots more detail about the events at this show here:
