Create Your Own Sunshine

Here at Stampendous, flowers are just our favorites! We never get tired of stamping and coloring them. You know who else never gets tired of flowers??… our little House-Mouse Designs® friends! Those little characters just love smelling flowers, picking them for each other, even eating them! And our Designers never get tired of coloring those little critters with their love of blossoms! Today we have a couple of terrific cards from Jennie Lin Black featuring our mousey friends and their love of Spring. Then we’ll send you off to our Design Team blogs for more floral delights! Be sure to leave lots of comments!

Room For Some Outdoor Fun!

When it’s picnic time there is room for outdoor fun and we’ve captured a few goodies from our summer style stamps today to share with you. If you have never been in a tree swing you should really try it out! It’s okay, it’s for kids of all ages and even safe when you use our stamp to create a fun card or scrapbook page.

There’s just something about a swing that makes the day seem care-free and perfect, just like this simple birthday card made by Janelle Stollfus a few years ago with Tree Swing (and retired set, Who’s Counting Perfectly Clear Stamp Set).

When the wind picks up it’s time to grab a kite and see how far along the skyline it will go. Surprisingly it doesn’t take much wind to bring Itty Bit along in the kite’s flight path with this next stamp.

HHW01 Hopper High Wood Mount Stamp

Color instructor and team alumni, Jennifer Dove, created a moving design with Hopper High and sentiment from Hope Verses Perfectly Clear™ Stamps. That sky is just incredible, don’t you think?

Pebble has it all planned out with a fabulous Hammock Nap and definitely making progress with the plan. What else is there to do after filling your tummy from a picnic spread?

This delightful sunflower color card is sprinkled with sun-rays with all the great yellow elements. Debi Hammons has it all set up for Pebbles and tied it with a bow. Instructions are available on our website for most of the samples we share, check out this one here.

That was a fun walk through some previously released stamps and a treasured look at some of our favorite activities outdoor. Still curious about more summer style stamps? Look for the summer stamp category on our website HERE.

Now these designers are waiting to share their projects from our April 2015 Catalog and I’m sure you’ll love their spin on the picnic fun theme.

Decorated Eggs

Do you decorate with colored vinegar water ? Use glue and glitter? Or maybe favor the HappyHoppers way of decorated eggs for Easter? We believe these must be the cutest way to enjoy decorated eggs.

Jennifer Dove paints outside the lines using ribbon on this fun card with Itty Bit applying the details to Hop It’s Easter Bunny costume.

Hop-It, Bumble, and Itty Bit are getting accustomed to their wobbly costumes and are prepared to parade across the next project that comes along for Easter.

When all the decorating is done one can get a wee bit tired. Depending on how big the egg is and how small the artist it could leave you so tired your asleep before you know it like Monica here has taken to the top of her creation.

Jennie Lin Black’s talent with color is remarkable on this shaped card.

Peek a Boo with House-Mouse Designs®

CHA Show Banner

One of the most anticipated parts of any new Stampendous release is the House-Mouse Designs® section. Folks love these little critters from the pen of Ellen Jareckie, and we love bringing them to you as fast as we can. Amanda, Maxwell, Muzzy, Mudpie and Monica are all ready for Spring and Summer in our new January 2015 Catalog. They can’t wait to share their adventures with you. Pick up your favorite coloring medium and grab half a dozen new mice (or bears or bunnies) on January 23 (when they go live on our website) and get to coloring. That snow around your house will just melt while you play. Here’s a quick peek at some of our faves! (who are we kidding, they’re all our faves, and they’re all available in Wood Mounted or Cling Rubber). We’ll be posting more all week from Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook, so stay tuned!

HappyHoppers® are on the Loose!

We are so blessed and grateful to be carrying the House-Mouse Designs® characters here at Stampendous. We opened our collection last Fall with the delightful mice for Halloween, Fall and Christmas. Then in our October Catalog we added the darling HappyHoppers® bunnies to the team, and these sweet rabbits have stolen our hearts! We added more of them to our line in the January Catalog, and this week our team is showing you their favorite creations with these wonderful creatures from the pen of Ellen Jareckie! So many of them are perfect for Mother’s Day, or Baby, or Father’s Day. We’re just so excited to have these options. In this stamp Hop-It reads a story to Bumble and Itty Bit! So sweet.
