Where the Wild Things Are – Friday

We’ve been celebrating some Wild Things this week. We’ve got a couple more team members who are sharing today with their wild creations.  Be sure to join us next week when we are “going to the dogs” (and cats)!

We have a couple more of Fran’s samples she made with the Laurel Burch stamps. These great cards show you that wild things don’t have to have wild colors! In fact, black and white can be deliciously wild. Especially when combined with some great embossing powders! Take a look! (you can find all the great wild animals from this week’s posts on our website HERE)

Now head over and take a peek at some great inspiration from the team!

Where the Wild Things Are – Wednesday

If you’re loving our new Laurel Burch wild animal stamps, you might be wondering how Fran made those wonderful backgrounds on the samples that appear on our website and in our catalog.

 

She’s made a video to share this technique with you, and we think you’ll love it! Take a look, then enjoy the samples our design team members have created to celebrate the wild things in our lives!  Just click on the image below.

Let the fun start! We are exploring where the wild things are all week, and we are beginning with the super Laurel Burch stamps from our April release! We also have some winners to announce from last week’s commenters!

Laurel Burch Rainbow Safari Rubber Stamp

These jungle creatures share the spirit of adventure in the design of Laurel Burch and we are thrilled to be bringing them in time for a summer of creating greeting cards, home decor and more! We can’t wait to see what you make with them!


These stamps are available in our deeply etched and precision cut premium gray rubber on a 1/8″ gray rubber foam backing and either mounted on a premium American hardwood handle with decal image on top OR on a cling vinyl decal with full sized image for easier storage and use with an acrylic handle (sold separately).

Creative Painting 2017 Is A Hit!

STM_rgb_logo600wide

Stampendous is excited to be teaching classes and sharing our newest products in the expo at Creative Painting in Las Vegas.

The Tropicana Hotel is the home for this fantastic event celebrating Decorative Painting, and we’ve attended each year for the last several years to show decorative painters how easy it is to use stamps. Rubber stamps make wonderful and easy background patterns for painted, home décor projects. In addition, they are an easy way to transfer a pattern to a piece for painting. Some of our large images like this Bird Blossom stamp are perfect for stamping, painting, and outlining to save loads of time on a gorgeous project.

This project was designed by Debbie Cole and taught by Tammie Wilson at this year’s Creative Paint event.

The other class taught by Sue Thornton was a fantastic Steampunk Jingle Bell plaque that used Train Postcard stamp.

It was a great turn out for both classes and all attendees worked hard to complete their projects. We can’t wait until next year!

More Lovely Lilacs

stampfocus_blog_lilacs

A new lilac image arrived in our House-Mouse stamps to add to the lovely lilacs theme of products. We adore this Lilac Aroma stamp as much as Monica does smelling the fragrance of these syringa flowers.

HMP59 House-Mouse® Lilac Aroma Stamp

And we know the lilac is Monica’s favorite flower because she was caught smelling the Scent of Lilac on another stamp and smelling flowers is any House-Mouse personal amusement in the garden. Stop by the House-Mouse stamp section of our website to see more!

Before we move on to inspiration from our design team today, here are more flowers we want you to see from the latest catalog. Cyclamen and Geraniums are beautiful and a joy to make into cards or adding to your garden journal.

And now here is the entire week of design team inspiration starting with today’s posts.

Lovely Lilacs In Time For Spring

stampfocus_blog_lilacs

We are back today with our Lilac Cling Stamps Set and Lilac Die Set to show the signs of spring you can achieve with a couple of helpful tools!

Fran created this beautiful springtime card easily by using the coordinating dies for the butterflies, lilac, and leaves, but she used another valuable die tool to give the card it’s dimensional look.

If you guessed Fran’s Pop Up, Die Set you are correct, but if you alternately said Pop Up Stages Die Set that would work just as great! Our Pop Up Stages offers more variation in dimension with the individual dies for columns, tabs, and stages, but the results are spectacular whichever die set that you choose.

 

Adding dimension with our Lilac stamps and dies extends to this fantastic mixed media key piece by Dee Adams.

Lilac Butterfly Key by Dee Adams

The butterflies were stamped into Chunky Embossing Powder on a die cut to give depth to the wings. As well Dee added them, so they look like they are taking a brief rest on the antiqued key. Click the photo’s caption for more information about this amazing project.

Find more project ideas from our design team today and throughout the week!
