Father’s Day Sketch Challenge #39 by Kristine Reynolds

Blog Star Kristine Reynolds is hostessing Sketch Challenge #39.
She’s challenging you to get those Father’s Day cards made early.

Kristine writes:
“Father’s Day will be here before you know it, so it’s time to get started on cards for all those great dad’s in your life. I love this Changito image and he works perfectly for a Father’s Day card! I liked the way this card turned out, so I decided to share the sketch with you in the form of a challenge! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!”

Even More Gift Ideas…

Last week many of you came up with some really creative gift ideas for the Sketch Challenge. And we also wrote a blog post featuring presents made by our design team. This week we’d like to show you a few great gifts that would be perfect for your fellow stamp loving friends or even your family, co-workers and neighbors! They don’t have to be stampers to enjoy a cuddly Fluffles the cat sweater or a cheery Changito the monkey mug! Many of our fans have asked for cool merch with their favorite Stampendous characters on them… and here they are, now available at Cafe Press!


This mug is made for the office! Don't you think?!

 

We admit, sometimes knit happens! And with this bag you can transport your needles and yarn to make knit happen anywhere!

 

A frighteningly cute onsie for your little monkey!

 

We don't have a clever caption for this one. We just thought it was cute!

 

Wouldn't you rather kiss the cook if they were wearing this snazzy apron?

 

And if you have any suggestions for Stampendous merchandise you’d like to see in the future, let us know in the comments below!

Christi’s Recipe Cards

One of our newest favorite stampers, Christi, posted on her “Blessings On Paper” blog a couple of fabulous recipe cards, and one using a Stampendous stamp. We think her projects are so cute that we could just eat them up! And we really can’t wait to try the recipes! Giving handstamped recipe cards is one of the cutest gift ideas we’ve seen for Christmas or any time. Here’s hoping your family has a wonderful Thanksgiving full of fun food and stamping!
