These sweet stamps are perfect on just about any project, small enough for tags, fun in groups for cards and larger projects. We also have a special surprise for you! These puppies and kittens come with their very own comfy chair for snoozing and snuggles.

Every package features the sweet chair pattern you can trace or cut out of your favorite patterned papers or stamp to decorate. If you like, you can download the pattern as well, HERE on our website. Here are some great examples using it!

Fran made a great video to show you how the chair comes together. Check it out:

Gone to the Dogs (and Cats)! – Friday

At Stampendous this week we’re celebrating the wonderful Dogs and Cats in our lives. We hope you’ve been commenting on our posts and our Design Team posts, because we’re giving away one set of our new Laurel Burch Dog Park Stamps and the coordinating Dog Park Cutting Dies this week.  We’ll take comments until Sunday night, then draw a winner on Monday. Tell us about your pets when you comment.

We want to remind you today, that there are lots of greetings and sentiments that are perfect for pairing with our great dog and cat stamps. Here’s a look:

We’ve really enjoyed this week with all of you sharing about your favorite fur people! We thought it would be fun to share with you our owner, Fran Seiford’s, own fur baby, Beaver! He’s a sweetie who loves to climb on the keyboard right while she’s making great art for our stamp images. He also gets to be the stylish model for some of our kitty stamps!

Fran's Cat, Beaver

 

And this is Avonlea, she’s Fran’s “great-niece”, and lives with Fran’s human niece, Anne Smallwood. She’s a curious little thing who plopped right down to have her photo taken when she found out about this blog series.

Avonlea Kitty

 

And our Design Team has one more round of cards to post for our Gone to the Dogs (and Cats)! theme week. Stop by and give them some love:

Gone to the Dogs (and Cats!)

At Stampendous we love our pets, and dog and cat stamps work their way into our releases frequently. Our April Catalog release was no exception, let us introduce you to our newest takes on man’s best friend, and cats, too!

Laurel Burch was extremely fond of both dogs and cats, and she drew them prolifically. We’ve added several of those images as stamps, so you can do the same thing.

The Dog Park Cling Rubber Set with its coordinating cutting dies is so sweet, and the ability to cut them out so easily provides tons of options for great projects. And one lucky winner can receive these two products by commenting on our blog posts this week. Each comment is an entry, so leave us some love! Tell us about your pets in a comment or two!  We’ll take comments all week through Sunday and announce a winner on Monday.  Official Rules

You’ll love some of the darling samples that Fran created for our April Catalog.

These projects are available on our website by searching Dog Park. We’ll share some more of her whimsical samples later in the week.

Our January and April Catalogs also included some great cat/dog images mounted on your choice of wood handles or Stampendous Cling rubber. Here’s a look a the latest offerings – YOU CAN FIND THEM ALL HERE:

We’ll be sharing lots of inspiration over on our Instagram Feed this week. Plus you can find projects featuring all of these stamps on our website projects section. Just click HERE and search Laurel Burch.

For today, we’ve got some fun inspiration from a couple of our Design Team Members! Be sure to leave them some love as well!  See you Friday!

Pop Ups and Puppies – Friday

It’s been a dog-gone wonderful week with our four-legged friends and we think they were the most well-behaved, affectionate and allergen – free canines around!

We almost forgot to share our super cool video that gives you ideas and instructions on the Pop Up Kitties and Puppies Stamp Sets with the coordinating dies. If you haven’t seen it, do check it out. Fran shares some amazing projects with tips and techniques to get these pups put together just right.

We have some great sentiments that to bark about here. These sayings and accent images will be just what you need to complete your puppies project with sentiments for birthday, encouragement, humor, life and love.

Having just the right sentiment makes these Pop Up Puppies real characters. Here a few samples from this week’s designers post that show the sentiments so well.

When I mentioned earlier this week that the in-house designers created litters of these puppies it was not short of the truth. Look at these adorable cards all made by Debi Hammons!

We have more puppies to see! Some of our designers have doubled-up the activities going on here on our blog this week so it’s possible you might have spotted their designs earlier today on our super blog hop with Linnie Blooms. We would love for you to join us there as well, there are prizes up for grabs.

Pop Up Puppies Abound

We’re back today with more adorable puppies! These incredible little hounds can be made by the dozen, cut out with the coordinating dies and mix and matched for scrapbook pages, cards, party favor bags and more. Our in-house team was producing samples by the litter for our catalog that we are sharing here on the blog this week to show they are just that much fun to use!

What’s more thoughtful gesture as sending a card to someone who adores bow-wow’s of all kinds than a card with one popping out of a birthday box. This terrier Fido is ready to celebrate that someone’s birthday with a lot of heart. Heart balloons that is, that are added to the tabs of the Pop Up Die panel with the pretty pup up front and ready for the party! Here Fido borrowed a bow from the Pop Up Kitties Stamp Set so she would be dressed up for the party. So many wonderful parts to this card that make up such a great surprise inside the birthday card.

This next card has a well-behaved pup sitting along a tree-lined path to encourage the card’s recipient with a sentiment from the Life Words Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. It is certain, that it will be a treat to see for whoever opens up this card!

The Frugal Crafter, Lindsay Weirich inked up her set of Pop Up Puppies Stamp Set and made a video of her super quick card for a birthday party her son was invited to attend. She is a testament to creating great projects when you are strapped for time and still getting great results. Her card turned out so adorable! See for yourself just how quickly she put together her card!

We’ve warmed up the inspiration stage with some puppy play and there is more from these designers sharing their special hound projects today on their blogs!

With graduation ceremonies upon us in the US, I thought a fabulous and adorable graduating puppy card was just right to start off the week. This smart canine was created by in-house designer Terry Braddock and it is created with our Pop Up Die Set so he is popping away from the inside of the card when opened!
