We know you always love new greetings, and we’ve got some wonderful new sets in our newest release. Lovely, big words that can be a focal point, background, border, or more, together with small, clear phrases that complement many of the beautiful, script words. You’ve seen them on several samples so far, but we wanted them to have their own day in the sun. The large script words go with the smaller printed words to make dozens of great greetings for your cards, tags, gift cards, and more.
Here’s a great video that Fran put together to show you how easy making great cards with these sets can be!
The two sets, Big Words Happy and Big Words Thanks, can be found on our website or in your local stamping or scrapbooking store. Here they are in all their glory (you can click on the picture or the link)
Our Design Team has been very busy using these words, and our Greetings Galore set, on so many wonderful samples. Please visit their blogs and leave them some love, they’ve got a lot of inspiration to share!
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!
Going out into the world with the whole family can be such an adventure! Keeping track of your chicks, is always a challenge as well. With our Everyday Chicks and their handy cutting dies, you can celebrate the victory of getting everyone together for Mother’s Day or just getting out of the house in the morning! Everyday Chicks can do it all!
Check out a few cards by our own Fran Seiford showing the chicks in action. You can click on the picture to visit the project on our website with complete supply lists and instructions.
You’ll notice on these cards that our terrific chicks are designed especially to complement our Greetings Galore Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Set. This set of greetings has a clean, crisp font that goes perfectly with our fluffy chicks and provides a wonderful amount of versatility when used on its own or with any other stamps!
Our talented Design Team is playing with our chicks this week as well! Please flap on over to their blogs and give them some love.
Hooray! Our new April Catalog is all finished! Want to peek at it? Take a look! This convenient flippy book lets you see all our newest images plus you can download it as a pdf to your computer, or you can print it out at home! (or just parts of it!). This can be a great reference if you’re working on a card, and you’d like to use one from our catalog as a sample.
Of course on March 30 all of our newest products will be online for our retail customers (they’re already live now for wholesale customers), products like our adorable Sassy City set. You’ll see lots more samples of the Sassy sets in May blog posts, but here are a couple of cards that will pique your interest. They’re so easy and fun with just a splash of inks in the background and our great Sassy Silhouettes doing their thing in front.
Let’s have a look at some sneak peeks from our Design Team and guest blogger, Sue Drees.
These great new stamps are just getting started! Next week we’ll look at the last of our Spring selection from the January catalog, then we’ll dive in to this new collection. We hope you’ll visit us often to see what’s new!
We’re sharing our Brushed Wishes and our Great Big Greetings this week. For the article about our Brushed Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set, seeTUESDAY’s post. We’ve even added a new alphabet to our collection with our new brush lettering. It’s so clever, too! Fran wanted to make this alphabet big enough for your mixed media, decorative painting, scrapbooking, or cardmaking uses. In order to get the letters bigger, she left out the Q, X, and Z in the set and supplied you with a handy extra stroke that can be used as quotation marks, an apostrophe, or can be added to other letters to make the missing ones. Here’s how it works (this guide is included with your alphabet set):
Here’s the Brush Alphabet Caps:
Here’s the Brush Alphabet Lower Case:
You can see how this cute alphabet makes it easy to put any greeting you want on your card or project:
Check out some other alphabet samples from our team:

We’re celebrating the things that make our Christmas Season Merry and Bright this week. You can see the great posts from Monday if you missed it. We have some more fun inspiration for you here today! Here are some more fantastic new products that are perfect for your holiday card making, gift wrapping, home decor, or even gift giving! Check out some of our fun Christmas Perfectly Clear Stamps. Both Snowman Wishes and Poinsettia Wishes contain a ton of awesome greetings you’ll use every year, plus a great border stamp that makes your card “one-and-done” easy. You can use any part of the border for a card the size you like. Both of these are terrific choices from the pen of our own Fran Seiford.
The wonderful Cardinal Border is the same sort of idea from the delightful Laurel Burch Collection. This set comes with lots of greetings, small elements for envelopes or Christmas newsletters, and a great border that can really create a fast card for you. Next week we’ll share tons of Laurel Burch Holiday Inspiration, don’t miss it! Have a look:
We also have some wonderful new Wood Mounted/Cling Rubber (your choice) stamps that give you that “one-and-done” success. Our Parchment Candle, Angel Blessing, Santa on his Way, Pinecone Greeting, Birdie Greetings, Warmest Wishes, Our Doorstep, Winter Home and our Dog Tree, Cat Tree, and Bird Tree stamps are all sized for the top layer of a standard card. This makes it so easy to stamp or emboss them in a solid color, or if you have more time, color until your heart is content. You can find the stamps below on our website on the last pages of the Christmas stamps section. Each one comes in wood mounted or cling rubber.
We also have our delightful Merry and Bright Ornament stamp! It’s perfect for stamping and embossing in several colors for an easy, quick, card!
It looks fantastic on this card by our in-house Sample Artist Debi Hammons.
Here’s some great inspiration from our Design Team today to make your holiday more Merry and Bright:
Halloween is almost upon us! We hope you’re enjoying all the amazing inspiration. Everyone has really outdone themselves with fantastic projects this year! You can see all the links for the month over on our 31 Days of Halloween Page!
We have a wonderful Mother/Daughter project to feature this weekend. Elina P and her 9-year-old daughter, Siouxann, decided to get out our terrific Costume Stack Perfectly Clear Stamps and make some awesome Halloween cards!
This set, like all of our “short stacks” sets is so cute and fun with heads, bodies, legs, arms, hats, and other accessories being interchangeable. The one trick to them is that they don’t have “necks”. Once you stamp them, you’ll see how it goes together, but just stamp the head right on to the body, and it will be obvious. We do get questions about the necks though. (poor Drac… it confuses him something fierce) (but we noticed Siouxann got it right away!) We find using them completely addicting.
Here’s the actual stamp set –
Here’s a video from last year where the Crazy Paper Chick shares her idea of using just the heads from the Costume Stack set. We really love that idea!!
Our own Fran Seiford had a lot of fun with our Costume Stack as well. You can see all her samples on our website, and her video about the set is right here –
And while we’re at it, take a look at the Woodsy Stack, after all, Halloween won’t last forever!
