Spring has Sprung!

Spring Mash Up

We’re sharing more of our Spring samples with you today! So much gorgeous inspiration! Our team has definitely done it again!

Our in-house team isn’t too shabby either! We are so lucky to have the super-talented Tammie Wilson working in our Sales Department. She’s an amazing Decorative Painter and she has created some beautiful projects for us. Some of them use our wonderful Spring products.

Take a look at her gorgeous Dutch Tulips box. It features our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Script stamp in the background. These great backgrounds are so wonderful for the painting crowd, they’re just loving them! It’s so easy to apply ink or acrylic paint to the stamp.

Isn’t it beautiful??!! Tammie was even kind enough to write out the directions for us so that we can add it as a project to our website. This was all done with acrylic paints, and her easy instructions make it so much more doable than you would guess. What a lovely gift to make for someone special!

Our team is sharing some wonderful projects this week as well. We know you’ll stop by their blogs and give them some love. And the fabulous Sue Drees from the House-Mouse and Friends Design Team has joined us as well with a wonderful project featuring these Dutch Tulips.

It’s Still Spring!

Spring Mash Up

Spring is still in the Air at Stampendous! We have lots of great projects left to share with you!

We had so many beautiful, large flowers in our January Catalog, and Fran had so much fun making samples with them. We wanted to share with you some of her creations.

The Fresh Peony and the Coneflower both have wonderful masks/templates/stencil included for free in the package. They also each include a couple wonderful sentiments to make creating a card that much easier. Their matching dies make creating whole bouquets of wonderfulness that much simpler as well.

Here are a few of Fran’s great samples:

 

These samples are all on our website as well. Just head to http://www.stampendous.com and search for Fresh Peony or Coneflower in the search box at the top to see the products and projects featuring these stamps.

Pop-Up Peek! Our Newest Innovation!

CHA Show Banner

The Craft and Hobby Association Trade show is in full swing, and boy are there some new goodies you’re going to need! If you’re lucky enough to be walking the show floor, be sure to visit Stampendous in Booth #723. Also check out our new acquisition, the fabulous Dreamweaver Stencils in Booth #2342. Such exciting events to start off 2015!

We’ve been peeking our new products to you this week. They’re only available to our wholesale stores right now, but you’ll be able to order them retail on our website beginning January 23. (we have to let them stock up so they can fill your orders from our website!) Start making your shopping list now!

One of our newest innovations is our Pop-Up Card Die Set! Unlike other Pop Up cards, ours features a system of overhanging tabs that add extra dimension to your creations. Fran Seiford shows you how this unique system works.

Pop-Up Die Set

We’ve also created a special Build a Bouquet Stamp Set (with matching Die Set available) that will let you make gorgeous floral Pop-Up cards and gardens full of greetings. The matching dies make it soooooo easy to cut out your flowers. And when you stamp them on monoprinted paper from our Creative Palette, a bountiful bouquet can be yours in just minutes! Here Fran demonstrates how to use these gorgeous blooms!

Catching Up!

We’re still trying to play catch up here in our offices at Stampendous! Building a new website can be quite a challenge. But it’s finished! And we’re celebrating with our newest catalog products from our April 2014 Catalog.

Our Design Team is giving you a Sneak Peek of our newest goodies. These beautiful designs for Spring and Summer will blow you away! We’ve added some precision cutting dies to coordinate with our terrific new flower offerings, and our Blossom Beauty stamp is already proving to be a fan favorite in a big way.  We’ve even got a video available already!

If you’d like to view the April Catalog, just click on it here. You can download it, print it, or just enjoy it online as a flippy book where it doesn’t take up any space in your home or on your computer!
Stampendous April 2014 Catalog

Our terrific April products are also now available on our brand new website! Just like always, your orders will be filled by local retail stores using the Shopatron order fulfillment system. It’s such a good way to support small business while shopping online. In many cases you can even pick up the products in the store to avoid shipping charges! You’ll find all the newest goodies under the What’s New Icon at http://www.stampendous.com!

You’ll be seeing a lot of the April Catalog Samples here in the coming weeks, but we asked our Design Team this week to share their favorites with you! Here are the links to those terrific posts. Be sure to leave them some love in the form of your happy comments while you’re there!

Bowl Bouquet by Janelle Stollfus (R199)

Last week our Design Team celebrated with a look at all the terrific Stampendous floral images! We always tell beginning stampers that if you just get some good flowers and a good set of greetings, you can make cards for any occasion. It’s so true! Flowers are appropriate for everything. And our Jumbo Cling Rubber Flowers come with a free Template and Mask so you can stencil backgrounds, mask the images, mask the backgrounds, use chalk, spritzy stuff, sponging, embossing…the sky is the limit! Let’s take a look at what our Design Team has done with these April Flowers!
