The beauty of Paris is famed the world over. Walking her charming streets is the one place in Europe that looks exactly how you’ve always imagined it would look. Small sidewalk cafes, the stunning Tour d’Eiffel, the Champs Elysees! It’s all incredible and awe inspiring. What would you MOST like to see in the City of Lights? We’d love to hear about your favorite Paris memory or dream. We’re giving away three sets of this beautiful stamp set and matching cutting dies this week! If you missed the chance to comment on Monday, be sure to do so as well as today. Our Official Contest Rules are always HERE.
We sent our wonderful Paris Bonjour set and the matching dies to the amazing Vicky Papaioannou and she worked her magic, as usual. We just love how she combines products to create a stunning layout. We know you’ll love her little trip to Paris. She also included our new Paris Map 6″X6″ Background Stamp. It’s such a versatile background for any travel-themed creations. Please leave her some love! These gifted artists thrive on your positive comments!
Meanwhile, back home our Design Team has some wonderful things to share using the Paris set, and we have a terrific post from Sue Drees of the House-Mouse Design Team joining us! Be sure to leave some love for all of them!
Be sure to stop by and give them all some love and maybe win yourself a une peu de Paris.
And we will have some WINNERS from our wonderful commenters on our Autism Blog Hop/Everyday Chicks Week, last week! Winners will be announced Tuesday on Veronica’s blog and then Wednesday we’ll confirm them here, so stay tuned.
Hooray! Our new April Catalog is all finished! Want to peek at it? Take a look! This convenient flippy book lets you see all our newest images plus you can download it as a pdf to your computer, or you can print it out at home! (or just parts of it!). This can be a great reference if you’re working on a card, and you’d like to use one from our catalog as a sample.
Of course on March 30 all of our newest products will be online for our retail customers (they’re already live now for wholesale customers), products like our adorable Sassy City set. You’ll see lots more samples of the Sassy sets in May blog posts, but here are a couple of cards that will pique your interest. They’re so easy and fun with just a splash of inks in the background and our great Sassy Silhouettes doing their thing in front.
Let’s have a look at some sneak peeks from our Design Team and guest blogger, Sue Drees.
These great new stamps are just getting started! Next week we’ll look at the last of our Spring selection from the January catalog, then we’ll dive in to this new collection. We hope you’ll visit us often to see what’s new!
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.

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!

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!
