Mother’s Day Greetings from Stampendous!

Happy Mother's Day Everyday Chicks Card

Here at Stampendous we are all about Mothers. We know how hard being a mother can be, and how rewarding. We hope that you, and all your chicks, have a super happy Mother’s Day.
Craft together, laugh together, and just have a wonderful time!

If you’re up before the family, or just settling down with your second cup of coffee (or your second mimosa), here’s some fun with chicks to help you enjoy the day. Be sure to join us next week when we will be looking at our Sassy Silhouettes as they hit the City!

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.

Paper Crafts Magazine – Join us TODAY!

Join us over on the Paper Crafts Magazine Facebook page as they drool over our fantastic new Plume Portrait stamp! We sent them some to give away, so you might get lucky! This elegant lady in the Plumed Hat is all ready to be at the head of your Easter Parade! Or invite her over for Fashion Week or just an Afternoon Tea. You’ll love the detail in her pretty face and how easy she is to color, or not! Wait until you see what our Design Team has done with her.

Plume Portrait by Debi Hammons

In house sample artist Debi Hammons used watercolors to make our beautiful belle into a fun friendship card. A little bit of Fran’s Encrusted Jewel Technique with Aged Gold Embossing Powder and Gilded Mica Fragments in the corner adds a special touch to this lovely card.

Design Team maven Pam Hornschu sent us one of our favorite cards of the January 2012 Catalog.

Plume Portrait by Pam Hornschu

Pam used our new Garden Background stamp and added some pearl embellishments and ribbon for a super soft card that would delight Mom on Mother’s Day or a special friend any time.

The rest of the team played along too with STUNNING results. They surprised even us and we’re used to their awesomeness! Check it out!
