Fucshia Trio – Vicky P Stamps Again

We’re super excited today because Vicky Papaioannou is stamping with Stampendous. And, of course, it is just WOW! Check out her great video using our new Fucshia Trio Cling Stamps and Cutting Dies here –

 

You can see the complete supply list for her project in her video description, and the project is featured on her blog here – Clips and Cuts

We know you’ll love these gorgeous flowers, and this project is just gorgeous! We’re always so happy when Vicky shares with Stampendous!

Spring has Sprung!

Spring Mash Up

We’re sharing more of our Spring samples with you today! So much gorgeous inspiration! Our team has definitely done it again!

Our in-house team isn’t too shabby either! We are so lucky to have the super-talented Tammie Wilson working in our Sales Department. She’s an amazing Decorative Painter and she has created some beautiful projects for us. Some of them use our wonderful Spring products.

Take a look at her gorgeous Dutch Tulips box. It features our 8″ X 8″ Decor Cling Script stamp in the background. These great backgrounds are so wonderful for the painting crowd, they’re just loving them! It’s so easy to apply ink or acrylic paint to the stamp.

Isn’t it beautiful??!! Tammie was even kind enough to write out the directions for us so that we can add it as a project to our website. This was all done with acrylic paints, and her easy instructions make it so much more doable than you would guess. What a lovely gift to make for someone special!

Our team is sharing some wonderful projects this week as well. We know you’ll stop by their blogs and give them some love. And the fabulous Sue Drees from the House-Mouse and Friends Design Team has joined us as well with a wonderful project featuring these Dutch Tulips.

Product Theme for Making Art

This has been a great week of making art, seeing how the design team from Spectrum Noir and our own talented team have created such a great variety of projects. Did you notice our theme week House-Mouse Designs® appear here and there? The gallery for this theme has grown and included here on this post, but first let’s take a look at the stamps that were the inspiration for this theme week.

Isn’t the image of this stamp the truth! Once we start stamping it’s likely to turn into a repeatable moment! House-Mouse Monica has turned into an avid stamper with this paw print stamp.

Making Prints

I always thought there was a special touch to flowers that made them so beautiful and now I’m thinking it’s all because Maxwell has a paintbrush and paint well.

Painted Pansies

Oh dear, a painting mishap between a paintbrush and tail! This adorable stamp is perfect to send an encouraging message, apology or to scrapbook those messy painting sessions of your children.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful inspiring weekend!

Just Rusting with Andy Skinner at CHA

CHA Show Banner

International Mixed Media Artist and Instructor Andy Skinner is DecoArt’s Executive Creative Consultant. He leads their international design team and is now designing stamps for Stampendous! We’re super excited to have his new designs to expand our Mixed Media offerings, and he was kind enough to demo in our booth at CHA. Here he shows us how you can use just a couple of DecoArt’s Fluid Media Acrylic paints and his new stamps to make a rusty piece of metal out of a piece of cardboard. You’ll be itching to try this one!!

There’s NEW Nathalie!!

CHA Show Banner

Stampendous has been so blessed to have internationally acclaimed Mixed Media Artist and Instructor Nathalie Kalbach designing stamps for our collection. She created three image groups last year that were hot, hot, hot! Now we’ve added three more. We caught up with Nathalie at CHA and convinced her to demo in the booth. Her fun and textured art journals aren’t really formal demo material, but we had a great time showing layer after layer of added yumminess as she just played around with paint and her new stamps! Enjoy!

Layered Paper Bezels with Debbie Cole

CHA Show Banner

We’re still at the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show. The Wifi here is TERRIBLE, but we’re sending all the peeks we can when we get to the rare hotspots around the show area.  Thanks for your patience.

Our booth demonstrations have been going really well. We’re processing the videos from them as fast as we can. Hope you had a chance to see Debbie Cole’s brilliant new jewelry creations, but, in case you missed it, here’s a peek!

Layered Bezels and Pendants

 

We just love this idea! We have had lots of generous companies donate bezels for our jewelry creations featuring stamps and resin, but the ability to make our own bezels using our Pop-Up Die Set is just sooooo thrilling. And when you combine the gorgeous painting talent of Debbie Cole, well, you just get some stunning results. Here’s a closer look! (you can click on it to make it larger!)

Sneak a Peek at Paper! Mixed Media Paper!

CHA Show Banner

One of the things we’re excited about at the Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show is that we can now bring you our very, very favorite white cardstock at a terrific value. Our new Mixed-Media White Paper is a gorgeous, ultra-brilliant, super-white 80lb cover stock that is perfect for any media you enjoy using. It takes alcohol markers beautifully, but also works brilliantly with colored pencils, water colors, acrylic paints, ink refills, embossing and even computer printing. We use it for absolutely everything here in the Stampendous Graphics Department, especially monoprinting with our Creative Palettes. We’re thrilled to be able to offer you a 25 sheet package of 8-1/2″ X 11″ paper for a suggested retail of just $7.99. That’s amazing for a premium paper like this. You’ll just love it – we promise!

Our Mixed Media White Paper will be available on our website January 23, but our wholesale store customers can buy it now. They’re stocking up, so check with your local stamping, scrapbooking or craft store to see if they’ve added it to their shopping list.

Here Fran shows you some favorite projects and techniques using this incredibly versatile paper.
