Happy Easter!

It’s Still Spring!

Spring Mash Up

Spring is still in the Air at Stampendous! We have lots of great projects left to share with you!

We had so many beautiful, large flowers in our January Catalog, and Fran had so much fun making samples with them. We wanted to share with you some of her creations.

The Fresh Peony and the Coneflower both have wonderful masks/templates/stencil included for free in the package. They also each include a couple wonderful sentiments to make creating a card that much easier. Their matching dies make creating whole bouquets of wonderfulness that much simpler as well.

Here are a few of Fran’s great samples:

 

These samples are all on our website as well. Just head to http://www.stampendous.com and search for Fresh Peony or Coneflower in the search box at the top to see the products and projects featuring these stamps.

Our Design Team also have great samples they haven’t shared yet! Be sure to take a few minutes today to enjoy these great posts from our Design Team and leave them some love!

Curios are Here!

Curios Banner

We’re in love with our new Curios stamps and their whimsical, colorful presence in our office and our craft area! They not only make us smile with their fun shapes and colors, they inspire us with card and project ideas all day! By the end of the day we’re brimming with great ideas for using them when we get home. It’s been a very fun experience. These little pops of home decor with their premium quality stamps on the back are just delightful.

Here’s a closeup look at a few more of these darling stamps:

Spring Borders Dies – WINNERS!

Spring Borders Die set

Last week we had so much fun with our Spring Borders Dies, and you’ll want to keep watching for them in the future since our team used them on so very many samples!

We have some winners from last week! If you winners will send an email to submissions@stampendous.com and send us your U.S. Mailing address, we’ll get these darling dies out to you immediately! Thank you for your kind comments! They mean a lot to us.

Samantha Houp from Janelle’s blog

Jeanne Beam from Louise’s blog

Tracy Magner from Jamie’s blog

Just a reminder to everyone. If we draw your name as a winner, but have no way to confirm that you live in the U.S., we draw another name. You need to make sure that some profile for you somewhere tells that you have a U.S. address. Even if you just write United States for your address online. We do try hard to verify, but this week we had to replace some winners who had no data available.

Spring Borders Die Set – Part III

Spring Borders Die set

We’re moving to the final two dies in our Spring Borders Die Set today! This versatile set is just fantastic for your Spring Project Needs. And don’t worry, you’ll be seeing lots more of this great set as it becomes a Stampendous Classic! In case you missed our previous posts, see them here – MONDAYWEDNESDAY.  You’ll want to leave comments on our posts, and the posts of our Design Team to be eligible to win your own set of Spring Borders Dies! We’ll give away three sets this week and the Official Rules are Always HERE!

The next die from this awesome set is the fanciest of the group. It’s got such an elegant line, you’ll want it for all your flowers and other beautiful stamps. Notice that it only cuts along the top of this image for a lacy edging piece.

 

 

 

 

The final die is a Victorian style edge that works alone, or perfectly mimics the bottom edge of the previous die, allowing you to create a stunning edge piece. This gives you twice the duty from both of these versatile dies!

Our Design Team has one more round of cards to share with you today. Be sure to comment on their blogs for extra chances to win! And keep your eyes open as we continue to share with our newest images! You’ll see these great borders again and again in our inspiration! We know you’ll love them.

Spring Borders Die Set – Part II

Spring Borders Die set

We’re in love with our Spring Borders Die set! If you missed the Monday post, be sure to check it out here! MONDAY

We’re continuing today with an in-depth look at two more of the dies in this set!

The first one is the darling heart cut-out die! This die is designed to cut a “window” in your card’s 5-1/4″ X 4″ or larger, layer. It allows for paper piecing or a lovely peek at the inside of the card. Cutting it out also provides you with lots of little hearts you can use as confetti in your card.

The next die is the Ribbon Threader Die. These darling daisies just beg for a ribbon, twine, or strip of patterned paper to be threaded through their little holes. Such a cute way to add ribbon to a card or project!

Spring Borders Die Set Fun!

Spring Borders Die set

Our new Spring Borders Cutting Die Set is so fun. Our Design Team went a little bit crazy with them and they really explored the possibilities of this terrific product. Not just borders, there are cut outs, a ribbon threader, and so much more! You get six great dies and they’re each meant to be able to repeat across a long surface, or fit perfectly on your standard card. We’ll explore each one this week! You could even win one of these great sets!

Here’s that fun set (you can click on it to see it on our website):

Spring Borders Die Set PackagedHere are some great samples to give you ideas, plus you know our Design Team is playing along below! We’ll give away three sets of Spring Borders Dies this week to lucky commenters on our blog or the blogs of our Design Team. You have to have a U.S. Mailing Address to win and complete rules are always HERE.

First up, in this great set, is the scalloped border. It has a great scalloped edge with impressed dots that follow the edge line. Super versatile and perfect for any look from classic to whimsical!

 

 

 

The next die is the flower cut-out border. This can be used to create a piece to be glued on to a card, or it can cut out a “window” to the inside of the card or to another layer. All sorts of embellishments can be added to the flower centers, from Dot Sparklers to jewels.
