Part of Your World 3: Warm on the Sand

SSCP110 Whisper Friends Beach Day Perfectly Clear Stamp Set

What would I pay, To spend a day, Warm on the sand!

We might have a view of sailboats and surfers, seashells and beach huts, too with Pink Your Life stamps by artist Nicoletta Zanella.

For a day at the beach, Nicoletta provides all that is necessary to enjoy the ocean and stay cozy on the shore in our Beach Day Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.  Check out the versatility with these stamps from our designer’s projects that go from pastels to grunge hues!

Assemble your scene from Beach Day or make it easier with these stamps, too!

Enjoy a stroll on the beach, a sunset nap or catch a wave in these stamps sized just right for a greeting card. Or add these fun beach activities to a scrapbook page, as table decor or a party theme invitation!

Accent any shore with the look of real sand using our Golden Sand Embossing Enamel! Kristine used it on her Beach Girl (below) and Beach Day (shown above) cards for a great effect. Find our embossing powder in a single jar or in a 5-Jar Beach kit in the Opaque Embossing Powders category of our website.

Part of Your World 1: Mermaids and More

We’ve been sharing some fun with mermaids this week! Stampendous is lucky to be licensing the wonderful artwork of Laurel Burch, and we were especially excited to add her Mermaid Fishes Cling Rubber Stamp Set and Cutting Dies to our lineup this April. (Check out our whole April Catalog HERE)

We have so much inspiration to share with you using this wonderful stamp set! Check out all the ideas below. Feel free to click on any of the images to see it larger.

 

Still more exciting is this gorgeous sample that Fran Seiford, Stampendous Owner and Founder, made with her fun and dynamic Encrusted Adhesive Technique!

 

This gorgeous card looks so lush and complex, but it’s so super-easy to make! Just cut your cardstock, stamp, color and die cut your mermaid and her fish friends, then grab a panel of your favorite double-sided adhesive sheets. We carry two kinds, Sticky Panels and the Dreamweaver Double-Sided Mounting Paper. Place your panel down on your cardstock. Peel off the protective sheet, and place your die cut images. Then fill in the space with color fragments, glitters, and the embossing powders/enamels of your choice. Heat to set, and MAGIC!  Want to see it in action? Check out the video below.
