Celebrating ‘Authentique’ Stampendous

Authentique Stampendous Blog Banner

Our Design Team is busily stamping projects for our October Catalog, due out in about a month. But they took a little time out this week to play with some products sent to us by Authentique™ Papers.

These gorgeous patterned papers for scrapbooking and crafting are just perfect for our October selection of Spring stamp images. But it turns out they’re great for lots of Stampendous Images! We’ll be showcasing the papers Authentique sent us in our October catalog and in a big Blog Hop in October. But we thought we’d give you a sneak peek of this terrific paper, and a chance to win some beautiful sheets of it plus a $20 Stampendous.com reward card this week! (Note: We’re just giving one prize this week.)

Hop on over to these Design Team Blogs and leave some love for your chance to win! Comment below on our blog, too. We also count those comments in our totals.

Stampendous Sketch Challenge!

For this challenge all you have to do is creatively stamp your image on pattern paper.  Here are two samples to show you so you can see how you can go simple or crazy wild.  Have fun with this one!

Jennifer, from Just 4 Fun Crafts, used the N199 Santa trio Stamp to make this card. And she admits that it’s her most used stamp! Gorgeous! And we love the color palette! It’s nice that she broke away from the traditional red and green Christmas colors and used pink and lime green.

And Jen also made this easy-on-the-eyes card! Made with the Ponderosa Pine Stamp, the Polar Path Cling Rubber Stamp Set, and the Clear Bark brown powder from the Scenic Selections 14 Jar Embossing Powder Kit, this card would be great for anyone!

Last week we had a color challenge. The requirements were to use all the colors of the rainbow in a card. Here are the two winners:

Carol made this beauty of a birthday card. Taking the birthday cake image and repeating it to make a pattern is a fantastic idea! We love it! She made this card using the SSC1051 Changito Baker Perfectly Clear Stamps Set and White Embossing Powder.

And an awesome job to Melissa with this marvelous creation! She used the NEW Peony Border Panel Stamp and embossing powders to make the main image. Simply stunning!

These winners will be contacted and sent a Stampendous prize in the mail. If you have won a contest in the past and have not received your prize, please don’t fret! We want to make sure you get your goodie. Please email submissions@stampendous.com and let up know which challenge you won and didn’t receive a prize for. Thank you!
