We’re celebrating One Last Summer Vacation here at Stampendous, a quick getaway before the bustle of school starting and the holidays approaching is completely on us. (This is a warning, by the way, that holiday cards are coming quickly to our blog!) Those last days of relaxation and travel, how have you spent them in a memorable way? We’ll be giving away one of our Pink Your Life Whisper Friends Beach Day sets of Perfectly Clear Stamps to one lucky commenter this week. Please share a great summer story with us!
You can catch up with all the rules and things from our MONDAY post, if you missed it. As well as some great inspiration from our Design Team. And they’ve got more to share with you today! Check out these Summer Fun projects from the team below. Be sure to leave them some love on their blogs.
Of course, Stampendous has LOTS of ways to help you celebrate Summer! Here are just a few of the great images we have for this family time of year! You can find all of our stamps in the Travel Category and the Summer Category of our website.
We’re on the road theme for one more day, and we have a sweet collection of phrases and images to highlight.
Travel Home Perfectly Clear Stamp Set is for the traveler on their way home or wishing for the next adventure to send a greeting or create a scrapbook memory that will steal your heart. See this set in action with samples from our January 2017 Catalog.
Our new stamps highlighted this week join a larger collection of great stamps and stencils with a travel theme. Stop by our website to see travel stamps with the Eiffel Tower, maps, trains and more, plus our travel stencils by Fran Seiford too.
Thank you for traveling over to our blog today for more vacation and destination themed products and now let’s look at what our designers are sharing for our theme.
Get your gear list ready because camping is the focus for our On The Road theme today.
Our new Campground Perfectly Clear Stamp Set has all the images of a camping experience from a tent or camper, a campfire, scenery and marshmallows ready to be toasted. A great set to scrapbook your outdoor adventures or create family reunion invitations and so much more! Look at this great camper card by Alison Heikkila that has some fun stenciled designs.
This delightful Camping Words with so many great words to describe an outdoor adventure goes great with our Campground Clear Set.
Here’s a terrific example of Camping Words repeated for a full background on Janelle Stollfus’ glamping invitation card.

We hope the wheels are rolling on the road to holiday paper crafting after this week with Truck Tidings! This set is a great combo of cling rubber stamps and dies that will enthuse the truck fans in your holiday circle, but it has so many more possibilities when you think outside of the holiday season and you will get to see some great ideas today from our designer’s projects today.
Before we take off for the weekend we’d like to share some of our other motored images also from our July 2016 catalog and a very popular truck and gifts image from an older release.
Let’s get the motor running and head on into the holidays with loads of fun and fresh ideas from projects by our design team!
It’s a Christmas tradition to have a fresh tree to decorate but what could be easier than loading it in the back of a truck? Maybe stamping it in the back of our Truck Tidings Cling Stamps and Die Set!
Debi Hammons created this tradition, shown above, by masking off the decorations making it look like a great, and easy, way to carry on the tradition through Christmas cards and scrapbook pages.
And more stamping fun with the same set is creating a truckload of presents to take to the family gathering or local charity. Capture the treasure of gift giving season with this stamp and die set and its loads of the possibilities!
For more inspiration, stop by our designer’s blogs to see what they made for our Truck Tidings theme week!
A very happy Monday to everyone and for our US peeps, have a great Labor Day holiday! Even though the U.S. postal service won’t be out for delivery today we are transporting our own holiday parcels because whether we want to believe it or not, it’s time to cruise through our July catalog of holiday goodies! We have a full line-up of themes that will take us right up until New Year’s to share and it’s time to get trucking through the holidays!
Our theme this week is all about getting those presents delivered on time and Truck Tidings really delivers tons of choices! This set includes images for a truck, presents and a decorated tree that are manufactured in our deeply etched rubber cling mount stamp each with a matching die, plus a perfectly suited sentiment to complete the set!
To get great ideas and an awesome tip on how to create masks, watch this short video with Fran Seiford.
We’ll be back again on Wednesday with more inspiration!
It’s Friday and our relaxed week of mixed media is almost over, but we have one more bit of goodies to share. The terrific mixed media artist and designer, Andy Skinner, is the spotlight of our post today and there is a chance to see him create with his trademark techniques using his line of stamps and stencils with DecoArt Media products. It’s amazing what you can do with this product combination when you have a few techniques up your sleeve.
His style is a solid industrial style with even shabby chic mixed in on a few projects. No matter the style it’s in the techniques you use with your supplies and we have a way for you to see Andy in demo them in action, but only for a short time.
Even though we are in the States we followed along Hochanda TV, a UK Television home shopping channel, during Andy Skinner’s shows on Tuesday here and Wednesday here, here, here and here. These links won’t be available for long so stop by soon to see all the techniques that continue to make Andy’s mixed media pieces amazing, awesome, and SO cool!
All these fantastic projects were made with Andy Skinner stamps which are daring and iconic, just perfect for any mixed media or stamping project. You can see Andy using them our videos from our booth during CHA the last few years. Stop by our Youtube Channel anytime to see them!
It’s the end of the month and a great time to revisit the Creative Squad projects Nathalie’s Studio Blog. This group of talented designers created fun art journaling pages using Nathalie’s stamps and stencil designs. For convenience, we’ve listed Nathalie’s Stampendous products here but you can also stop by Nathalie’s store for her products, too.
The Creative Squad was given the challenge to create something that celebrates the spirit of adventure and it was fun to see where their creative spirit took them for each project. We’ve grabbed the links to all of the “Say Yes! to New Adventures” posts so you can browse with ease. Enjoy and be inspired!
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.
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!
