Stampendous Bible Journaling Stamps

Last year, we shared our two bible journaling stamp sets with inspiration right from bible pages. Today we have a few clean and simple card designs that we think are the coolest!

There are still plenty of ideas to be done with these sets and Fran shows some great techniques in this terrific video for using the new stamps sets, inks, and more media in the margins of your Bible.

Gone to the Dogs (and Cats)! – Friday

At Stampendous this week we’re celebrating the wonderful Dogs and Cats in our lives. We hope you’ve been commenting on our posts and our Design Team posts, because we’re giving away one set of our new Laurel Burch Dog Park Stamps and the coordinating Dog Park Cutting Dies this week.  We’ll take comments until Sunday night, then draw a winner on Monday. Tell us about your pets when you comment.

We want to remind you today, that there are lots of greetings and sentiments that are perfect for pairing with our great dog and cat stamps. Here’s a look:

We’ve really enjoyed this week with all of you sharing about your favorite fur people! We thought it would be fun to share with you our owner, Fran Seiford’s, own fur baby, Beaver! He’s a sweetie who loves to climb on the keyboard right while she’s making great art for our stamp images. He also gets to be the stylish model for some of our kitty stamps!

Fran's Cat, Beaver

 

And this is Avonlea, she’s Fran’s “great-niece”, and lives with Fran’s human niece, Anne Smallwood. She’s a curious little thing who plopped right down to have her photo taken when she found out about this blog series.

Avonlea Kitty

 

And our Design Team has one more round of cards to post for our Gone to the Dogs (and Cats)! theme week. Stop by and give them some love:

Where the Wild Things Are – Friday

We’ve been celebrating some Wild Things this week. We’ve got a couple more team members who are sharing today with their wild creations.  Be sure to join us next week when we are “going to the dogs” (and cats)!

We have a couple more of Fran’s samples she made with the Laurel Burch stamps. These great cards show you that wild things don’t have to have wild colors! In fact, black and white can be deliciously wild. Especially when combined with some great embossing powders! Take a look! (you can find all the great wild animals from this week’s posts on our website HERE)

Now head over and take a peek at some great inspiration from the team!

Part of Your World 4: Yo Ho, Treasures!

We are back, mateys, with a little treasure between pirate lad and lassie! Nicoletta Zanella illustrator and creator of Whisper Friends from Pink Your Life created these pirate stamps with tons of character that are so fun to color!

Each stamp has a background scene and appears as though one has stayed back as the Lookout while the other found the loot, both with so many fun coloring opportunities!

Speaking of opportunity, there is a Whisper Friends Pirates Perfectly Clear Stamp Set to give to THREE commenters! Comment here on our blog and that of the designers participating in our pirate theme week! Deadline to comment is June 4, 2017, at midnight Pacific Time. US winners only. See Official Contest Rules for details.

Ready for some pirate inspiration? Here are designers participating in today’s hop –

Part of Your World 3: Up Where They Walk

Up where they walk, up where they run, Up where they stay all day in the sun!

It is a beautiful stroll along the sandy shore this week with our breathtaking beach theme stamps, dies, and stencils!

The first to light the way is Fran Seiford’s Cling Build A Lighthouse Stamp Set and matching Build A Lighthouse Die Set. Customize the lighthouse with the free template included in the stamp set, then add it to a rocky or sandy beach scene with coordinating dies.

Here are a few fantastic ideas from Fran Seiford that we know will spark some inspiration. The possibilities are endless!

All these great samples can be viewed in our video along with ideas and tips using the stamps, dies, and free template!

There is more to come this week with Fran’s designs, Pink Your Life, and House-Mouse Designs® collection too! We have a few of our designer’s sharing some of their beach theme projects today.
