Part of Your World 2: Under the Sea

Octopus and Jellyfish by Fran Seiford

We start diving into our Part of Your World theme series this week with creatures from the deep! Our sea family is growing in Octopus, Jellyfish, Whale and Turtle stamps available in our wood mounted or cling mounted (shown) rubber stamp options.

Create projects with our new stamps individually or combine them for an incredible deep sea scene like the fabulous card shown above by Fran Seiford. Take a look at today’s spotlight stamps, click on the caption and see more project samples, too!

We have tons of ideas to share with you this week from our April Catalog, and our designers are sharing on their blogs too! Keep swimming on over and get a dose of inspiration from these designers using the stamps featured in our post today!

Part of Your World 1: Look at this Stuff!

Isn’t it Neat?
Wouldn’t you say our collection’s complete?

We’ve been swimming with mermaids this week in our Part of Your World 1 series. Be sure to join us next week for Part of Your World 2: Under the Sea!

Today we’re sharing one of our most popular stamps of all time! Our Mermaid stamp has been with us since January 2011, and she’s still one of our best sellers.

P151 Mermaid Stamp

She’s been featured in some of the biggest craft stores, like Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics, and she’s been offered by most of our independent retailers as well. She’s been the focus of tons of wonderful projects like the ones below: (click on them to make them larger)

 

But the pièce de résistance, we’re sure you’ll agree, is this amazing project by Design Team Alumni Suzanne Czosek! This project is our all-time most pinned project on Pinterest! It’s been shared and pinned to boards almost 8,000 times! Isn’t it luscious, with all that Halo Glitter, and Color Fragments, and so much more goodness! It’s really one of our favorites ever!

Do you have a sample you’ve made with our beautiful Mermaid Stamp? We’d love to see it! Feel free to post it on social media and tag us with #Stampendous or @Stampendous. Or post it on our Stampendous Facebook Group, our Stampendous Flickr Group, or email us at submissions@stampendous.com.  You can also upload a Stampendous project of your own at any time at https://www.stampendous.com. On the front page of our site you’ll see a place to Submit Your Project.

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.

Part of Your World 1: Mermaids and Friends

Mermaids are really hot right now! You see them everywhere you shop. We’re lucky enough to have some of the coolest mermaids in town.

In addition to the wonderful Mermaid Fishes Set from artist Laurel Burch that we introduced Monday, we still have our awesome Mermaid Friends set.

CRS5088 Mermaids Cling Stamp Set and DCS5088 Mermaids Die Set

Like most of our Cling Rubber Stamp Sets with coordinating Cutting Dies, this is a Limited Edition.  If you’ve been waiting to add this gorgeous mermaid, staring into a beautiful pearl, surrounded by her fun, eager friends, to your collection, you might not want to wait much longer. Take a look at just some of the great inspiration using this wonderful set. You can see that all the pieces work seamlessly together, and they all shine separately as well! (And they all look amazing with those Graphic45 papers! Thanks G45!) You can click on an image to see it full sized.

 

Loving our Mermaid and Friends??? We sure do! Take a moment or two to watch Fran make some of these gorgeous cards!

Part of Your World 1: There be Mermaids!

Laurel Burch Mermaid Fish

 

We’re really excited this week at Stampendous to showcase our newest edition to our Mermaid family. This fantastic Cling Rubber Stamp Set by artist Laurel Burch adds a whimsical mermaid and her fishy friends to our other two, already popular, mermaid stamps. Colored by our own Fran Seiford in the delightful, brilliant color scheme favored by Laurel, this mermaid is as at home on a card as she is in the sea. We’ll be sharing lots of other ideas for her this week. Why not get your own and color along! We’d love to sea your projects! (Sea what we did there?) You can find this great set at your favorite stamp retailer or on our website, where your orders are fulfilled by independent, local stamp stores.  You can share projects on our Facebook Group, our Flickr Group, or email them to submissions@stampendous.com and we’ll share them for you!  You can also check out our Laurel Burch by Stampendous Pinterest Board for loads of inspiration!  (If you create something and post it online, be sure to let us know so we can pin it here!)

 

Remember, you can download your very own guide for coloring Laurel Burch images on our website! Just click on the photo below!

Friday by the Seaside

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea!! We really have had way too much fun with our gorgeous seaside images this year! They’re all just so versatile, and lend themselves to so many projects from home decor, a sweet note for a vacationing friend, or just some terrific masculine images! You’ll want to pick up our Cling Rubber Sets with Dies before they sail off into the sunset. These terrific sets are always limited in quantity.

CRS5089 Sailboat Cling Rubber Stamp Set and DCS5089 Sailboat Die Set

Fran had so much fun using our wonderful Cling Sailboat and the matching Sailboat Die Set. These easy-to-cut images are just so simple to use and still get dynamic results. Take a quick look at her video here for loads of ideas and project galleries.

Then sail on over to see the terrific projects some of our Design Team still have to share with you! Please throw them a life-preserver and leave them a nice comment or two!
