This week we took a creative look at ways to make your cards POP with our new Pop Up Stages Die Set.

In Monday’s post we included the Basics Video, a really great video when starting out with the Pop Up Stages dies, and today we have two short video tutorials on how these sample cards were made!

This cheerful card with our Happy Birds Perfectly Clear Stamps Set is made with just a few supplies, and it has such an excellent pop to it!

Now it’s time to celebrate in a sweet way with our Cake Tiers Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.

New Pop Up Stages and Spring Tweets For Wednesday

DCP1008 Pop Up Stages Die Set

Our new birds from the Cling Spring Tweets Stamp Set are chirping to pop onto a spring project and with the January catalog release, we have products to develop that creative idea!

Cling Spring Tweets Stamp Set has lovely little birds who are ready to nest amongst flowering tree branches in oodles of different arrangements and layering them is easy with the coordinating shapes in the Spring Tweets Cutting Die Set. So easy you will want to make a flock of these little darlings.

Now, to make them pop just add any combination of platforms or columns from Pop Up Stages Die Set to your background layer and voila your project has a popping effect!

New Pop Up Stages and Spring Tweets!

maxresdefault

Our new Pop Up Die Set is setting the stage for some exciting pop ups in columns and platforms! Use Pop Up Stages with any type of stamped and die cut or hand trimmed shapes like images from Family Home, Pretty Poppies, and Spring Tweets stamp sets.

Pop Up Stages dies are so versatile as separate pieces you can use a single column die to make a flower bouquet pop off the background as on Debi Hammons beautiful card here.

Using two or more column dies will create varying depths for a fun scene. Add the tab die anywhere for a popping greeting!

More Peeks! New Products!!

CHA Show Banner

The CHA show floor opens tomorrow for the mega blast of new products in the craft industry! We wish you were here! (if you ARE here, visit us in Booth #723) While it’s not open to the public, we can sure give you a peek at the newest products from Stampendous!

Our Creative Palette Monoprinting plate we released last year has been a HUGE hit! Folks are loving the terrific patterned papers they can print with this versatile tool, plus the fact that they can easily pick it up and transfer the pattern to home decor and other projects. Decorative Painters are thrilled with the way it performs as a palette! It’s just all around a must-have for your studio.

This year we’re thrilled to release two new versions of the Creative Palette. Rounds and Rectangles. Both include new palette shapes and sizes plus images you can use on an acrylic stamp handle to create more patterns and backgrounds. You’ll love them both. Fran has made some terrific videos for you to see the benefits of these new additions to the Creative Palette family!

 

Creative Palette – Rounds

 

Creative Palette – Rectangles

 

Here’s a closer look at some terrific samples using these two palettes! We’ll be sharing LOTS more this weekend from CHA! Be sure that you follow us on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook for all the fun!
