A Whimsical Pink Your Life Blog Hop

We are SO excited about the week ahead! We not only get to share some fantastic new products by Pink Your Life’s Nicoletta Zanella, but we’ll also be playing along with the talented designers from Pink Your Life! The new release is superb with five everyday life single stamps and two Perfectly Clear Stamp Sets that are the cutest ever!

Pink Your Life is a terrific retailer for us in Europe with an online store and a busy consumer show schedule. We were excited when they asked if we would manufacture their own line of stamps. They will be traveling Europe in February with the new stamps and more at various shows, look for more information on their Facebook page to know where they will be next! Check out a video taken from their booth at the Winter 2016 Il Mondo Creativo –

To get the inspiration started here’s a super sweet card and tutorial by Pink Your Life illustrator and designer, Nicoletta Zanella!

Makes us want to create even more Pink Your Life samples!!!! Keep reading on, and you’ll have a chance to use a few stamps from the new release too!

Hanging Around Wednesday

As the bat theme continues this week we’d like to introduce you to a smaller bat hanging around in our Halloween themed stamps. You can find it in the Tricky Words Perfectly Clear Stamps Set to be used for your next Halloween project or perhaps use it with face paint for a temporary tattoo! There are also plenty of word stamps and small images to build your own sentiment, perfect for tags on your treat bags.

Tricky Words Perfectly Clear Stamp Set

Take a quick hop over to see what

Amy Hurley-Purdie

has on her blog today and let her know you stopped by. Our designers really love to hear from you.

Fran•táge a Friendly Greeting

These beautiful collage stamps we’re featuring this week capture perfectly the Fran•táge style. Vintage, shabby chic, a bit timeworn and well-loved (or neglected), all these elements lend a charm and beauty to items and greetings. We’ve done the work for you with collages of vintage and original images combined with Fran’s flair for composition to create these gorgeous stamps. Each with a small space perfect for the greetings from our Quotes Perfectly Clear Stamps™ sets.

The design team has been sharing all week, and they’ve more to share today! Hope you’ve enjoyed the inspiration and might want to add a couple of these images to your collection!

Kristine Reynolds made this gorgeous card without a greeting! So festive and sweet with all the butterflies adding so much texture, and using the Encrusted Jewel Technique on the edges of her focal point!

Look at this adorable wreath that our very own Monika Thomas made! Two versions featuring the fantastic products from DIY Bangles! This project uses their 9″ Floral Craft Ring which they generously donated to our design team. The ribbons and stars are from our ALWAYS generous friends at May Arts Ribbon. The papers are from our also generous friends at Canvas Corp! (It’s so fun knowing all these folks who share well with others!)

***Blog Hop Hint – if you click on a link that takes you to a page saying something like, “Sorry this page cannot be found,” just click on the header at the top of the blog (usually a picture, or the blog’s name), and it will take you to that blog’s most recent post. That post *should* be our hop. If not, you can probably scroll down a short way to find the hop post.

Back from NAMTA!

The National Art Materials Trade Association Show was last week in Pittsburgh, and this year they invited the manufacturers from the Craft And Hobby Association to have booths there as well. We hope this is going to lead to more and more collaboration between traditional art materials suppliers and craft materials suppliers. You have loved the collaborations we’ve done with folks like DecoArt, Faber-Castell, Tombow, STAEDTLER and others. We are excited to keep bringing you ever more uses for your art supplies in your crafting and vice versa!

Stampendous had a booth, and our own Fran Seiford was there demonstrating our Creative Palette and how to use lots of terrific products like Princeton Brushes’ new Catalyst wedges, favorites of Designer Willow Wolfe,  to add texture and pattern with DecoArt Acrylic paints on the Creative Palette.

We also had the effervescent and enthusiastic Nathalie Kalbach demonstrating in our booth with her exclusive Stampendous stamps! These stamps have been so fantastically popular ever since we released them in January that we have a very hard time keeping them in stock! No wonder since Nathalie has been all over the world from New York, to Canada, to Malaysia and beyond demonstrating and teaching her fun and funny classes with them! If you’ve never had a chance to take a class with Nathalie, you should definitely check out the schedule on her website. They are fantastic!

We’re excited that CHA and NAMTA have joined forces to help us forge new collaborations in the art materials world. Good things are coming!! Stay Tuned!
