Bible Journaling with Stampendous!


Our new Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Bible Journal and Bible Promises are perfect for working in the new Journaling Bibles that are available.

You can find lots of journaling bibles online, including on, but they’re a bit of an investment, so we decided to practice by making one of our own.

We downloaded the whole King James Bible as a .txt file from this website – Free Bible Download

Then we formatted just the first 130 chapters of the Book of Psalms. We thought you might like to practice along with us.

You can download our formatted pages here. They are designed to print on 8-1/2″ X 11″ paper and the dark lines are intended as cutlines so that you’ll end up with standard 6″ X 9″ journaling bible pages with 2″ margins on the sides for journaling.  Psalms.pdf

Fran has made a terrific video showing some fun techniques for working with stamps and inks in your Bible:

And our Design Team had some fun playing with these stamps in our October Catalog:







October Catalog Sneak Peeks Day 2

Butterfly Wings by Fran Seiford

The October catalog brings a little bit of early spring inspiration with butterflies and flowers in all sorts of styles. As you can see our Butterfly Wings Background is a graphical design that is great all by itself as Fran’s card above shows so well and can be joined with so many other stamps in our catalog.

Lilac Aroma by Kristine Reynolds

As for the florals offered in this release, we have a pretty cute admirer for the lilacs in this House-Mouse Designs card by Kristine Reynolds. There are oodles of squeak worthy stamp images for spring House-Mouse and they are easy to browse through over on our website right now in the New House-Mouse Designs section!

Now that we’ve started the inspiration it’s time to keep the momentum going with our designer favorites being shared today! Enjoy!

Starry Swirls

One of Fran’s favorite images from the new October 2016 Catalog is Starry Swirls. This stamp was inspired by VanGogh’s Starry Night painting.

Fran wanted to achieve this beautiful nighttime look back in April when our Mermaid Friends Stamp Set debuted.

She created this project using colored pencils, and she realized how time consuming getting this look would be for stampers.

Mermaid Friends and Starry Night

So she sat down and drew Starry Swirls for us! This terrific stamp gives you this gorgeous background look and lends itself to so many wonderful techniques.

Here’s a video that Fran created showing lots of ideas using this great new image.

This stamp perfectly complements our wonderful Sunny Vase stamp set to create lots of gorgeous creations.






More Options to Stack

Winter Stack Skiers by Fran Seiford

We have a second stacking stamp set to share that is just as fun to play with as our Woodsy Stack. It may be difficult to decide which one is more fun to stack and maybe a few samples shared will help you understand why.

SSC1249 Winter Stack Perfectly Clear Stamps Set

This fun set comes with 9 image stamps to make many different snowman winter scenes like the card Fran made with the Skier and snowflakes (above), but also a two-stamp sentiment that works well for combining into one or creating an outside and inside sentiment on a the card.

Baking Up Double the Fun

Gingerbread Baker Pair by Fran Seiford

Baking up yummy holiday treats is always fun with someone along to help and our Gingerbread Baker Clear Stamps and Die Set will make an assistant baker easy with the fun mix of dies.

Just think of the possibilities for your holiday paper crafting, gift giving, and scrapbook pages.

Fran’s adorable card shown above would be great for a couple who loves to cook or bake together and how about a delightful way to say thank you to the school’s cafeteria staff!

Gingerbread Baker Clear Stamps and Die Set

This charming set includes an apron, chef hat and bowl to create a variety of merry bakers, and one more die that really adds the finishing touch to the gingerbread die cut is the bow die. Take a look at this merry gingerbread pair with a hair bow and bow tie, what a sweet couple!
