This super popular product was one of the great innovations we released at #CHA2016! We love how we can use the simple pop-up construction in the center to make a pop up card out of just about anything! But the other Pop’cessories dies are just as exciting. Make boxes, placecards, stand up creations, and bobble/wobble projects with these innovative cutting dies. Check out Fran demonstrating this wonderful new product that has been one of the biggest hits of 2016.

Bible Journaling with Stampendous!

bible_journal_title1

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 Amazon.com, 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.

starry swirls stamp

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.
