Stampendous and Imagine Crafts Header

Welcome to a week of fantastic collaboration between Stampendous and Imagine Crafts! These are two companies made for each other. After all, what are stamps with out ink?  We shared a bunch of our stamps and Stack Art kits with the Imagine Crafts design team and they were very generous with the ink! In addition to the gorgeous Radiant Neons™, we received some StazOn™ and Memento™ colors plus some yummy Delicata™! You’ll be seeing lots of these inks from our team in the coming weeks!

But we also sent them some of our fantastic Fran•táge Color Fragments in our hot colors to match their gorgeous new neon inks. And that’s what you can win in this terrific, week long blog hop! We’ll be giving three prize packages of 3 Radiant Neon inks and 3 Fran•táge Color Fragments (we’ll choose your colors). There will be a bright crafting future ahead of you! All you need to do is comment on as many of the posts as you can.

Stampendously Dreaming of Stencils

p.txt

We are having a blast this week playing with the products that Dreamweaver Stencils sent over to us! And we can sure tell from the samples their Dream Team has made so far this week that they’re having a ton of fun with our Blossom Beauty and the matching Cutting Die set. We sure get that, because we’ve had so much fun ourselves making projects, art journals, and putting beautiful hairstyles on this incredible image.

 

We’ve even created a free set of downloadable hairstyle templates for your Blossom Beauty! The zip file contains pdf files so you can print your templates and cut them out with a craft knife, or there are .svg files so you can use your Silhouette, Zing, Scan N Cut, Gazelle, Lynx, EClips, Pazzles and other machines that can use these files to cut out the templates. We suggest that you use a printable transparency or clear plastic file folder to make your template durable and reusable.  You can download your templates HERE on the Blossom Beauty Product Page.

Catching Up!

We’re still trying to play catch up here in our offices at Stampendous! Building a new website can be quite a challenge. But it’s finished! And we’re celebrating with our newest catalog products from our April 2014 Catalog.

Our Design Team is giving you a Sneak Peek of our newest goodies. These beautiful designs for Spring and Summer will blow you away! We’ve added some precision cutting dies to coordinate with our terrific new flower offerings, and our Blossom Beauty stamp is already proving to be a fan favorite in a big way.  We’ve even got a video available already!

If you’d like to view the April Catalog, just click on it here. You can download it, print it, or just enjoy it online as a flippy book where it doesn’t take up any space in your home or on your computer!
Stampendous April 2014 Catalog

Our terrific April products are also now available on our brand new website! Just like always, your orders will be filled by local retail stores using the Shopatron order fulfillment system. It’s such a good way to support small business while shopping online. In many cases you can even pick up the products in the store to avoid shipping charges! You’ll find all the newest goodies under the What’s New Icon at http://www.stampendous.com!

You’ll be seeing a lot of the April Catalog Samples here in the coming weeks, but we asked our Design Team this week to share their favorites with you! Here are the links to those terrific posts. Be sure to leave them some love in the form of your happy comments while you’re there!

Hello Stampers! Sorry to be absent for a bit, we’ve been tweaking our new website getting ready for the grand reveal. It just took a bit more tweaking than anticipated. Thanks so much for your patience as we’ve worked out the kinks. We’ll make a separate post for that before the end of the week!

Last week we didn’t get to post much, but our Design Team sure did. They were working with the best of Stampendous’ Inspirational offerings sending Easter thoughts out to all of you for our new month! Don’t you love the gorgeous samples by DT Member Wendy Price above? Such rich, luscious color. She’s fantastic! Hopefully you’ll enjoy the creative and gorgeous samples they all made! Hop around, leave them some love in the form of supportive comments! We’ll be back with more excitement tomorrow!
