We have had so much fun this week with Vicky Papaioannou’s wonderful videos using Stampendous Products. She’s just so talented and creative, and we love seeing what she’ll do with anything we send to her. It’s always astonishing!
Today she’s using a favorite from this season. Our Snowman Trio has been so popular that we sold out of them in our warehouse, but because our orders are filled by local stamping, scrapbooking, and craft stores, we made sure that our fulfillers had some to send to you. We can’t give this one away as a prize (we literally have zero), but you can order it on our website, at least through this weekend. So for today’s giveaway, we’ll give another of our Smiling Snowman sets from yesterday. U.S. Mailing Address only – Official Rules are always Here!
If you’re loving our new Laurel Burch wild animal stamps, you might be wondering how Fran made those wonderful backgrounds on the samples that appear on our website and in our catalog.
She’s made a video to share this technique with you, and we think you’ll love it! Take a look, then enjoy the samples our design team members have created to celebrate the wild things in our lives! Just click on the image below.
If you are wondering what goes with Superstar birthdays, we have the answer, desserts! After all, a party isn’t a party without cake, and we have plenty to choose between our stamps and stencils.
The most recent of our sweet stamp treats are the Dessert Display and Cupcake Tiers available in both wood mount and cling mount (shown below) rubber stamps.
We also released Cake Tiers Perfectly Clear Stamps complete with numbers and sentiments to celebrate those milestones for birthdays, anniversaries and more!
To make this set even more exciting, Fran Seiford paired Cake Tiers with our Pop Up Stages Die Set for a superstar card insert, and we have a quick video for you to see how well it all comes together, plus a link to the cards printable project page on our website!
Ready for more inspiration? Hop on over to see what our designers have baked up for a superstar birthday theme.
You may see stenciled sweets on the designer’s post this week, but we didn’t want you to miss the sweet stencil products that go along with our desserts theme today. Stop by last Friday’s Stencil Palooza post for a gallery full of them!
We sure enjoyed introducing the new Pop Up Stages Die Set to you this week. If you loved a project you saw this week why not share it with a friend on Facebook or pin to one of your Pinterest boards to use as inspiration for your next project!
Here are a few more project ideas from our design team today. Enjoy!
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!
On Fran’s birthday card you can see how amazing these products work together, the possibilities are endless! If you missed it, Monday’s post we shared more about the Pop Up Stages Die Cutting Set in a video so hop on over there if you’re curious for more information!
And for even more fresh and popping new project ideas stop by our designers who are posting this week!
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!
Get started designing projects that pop by watching this basic tips video with Fran, then enjoy creating endless configurations on your projects.
This week we asked our team to share projects using Pop Up Stages Die Cut Set and the Spring Tweets stamp and die cutting sets for tons of inspiration! Here is the list of participating designers today –

Welcome back to another day of our hop with the great folks and talented designers at Perfect Paper Crafting! Each day here on the blog we have a spotlight on the terrific products being used by the designer’s for their hop projects, but also some of the prize products, too!
On Monday we shared videos for one of the prize packages and today is another set of product videos to highlight one of the other prizes! If you want to catch the videos on Monday you can find a link towards the end of our post today.
Take a look at Fran’s video for tips and techniques using the Pop’cessories Die Set on how this set boosts your cards and crafts.
And this Perfect Paper Crafting video for those Mini Perfect Layers Tools that add up to another perfect pair of products for crafting.
We think that our products are so terrific paired together that we’ve combined them into THREE prize packages!
Lindsay incorporated all the tools in this set and it created quite a awesome masculine style scene card. There are just so many possibilities in one set, we know there will be endless creativity with Urban Scribbles.
Lindsay Weirich is having some vintage fun with Nathalie Kalbach’s Cling Fashion Dame Rubber Stamp Set in a video tutorial and it’s perfect timing with the blog hop we just had this week. Here’s her video, enjoy!
Two tips to keep in mind that are different from the way Lindsay used the products. First, ink your stencil flat on the table, not in your hand. Second, when peeling off your stencil, turn it upside down and peel the paper off the stencil, holding the stencil flat against the table. These two tricks will keep your stencil from getting bent and warped, warping will impair its function if used later with paste or sprays.
