Jumbo Stampendous Blog Hop!

Stampendous is so excited to announce their latest new product line...Jumbo Cling Rubber. These super sized designs make creating dramatic greeting cards and scrapbook pages effortless, but they can do so much more! They are ideal for use on textiles, walls, and all sorts of home d├ęcor projects. We felt like the best way to really introduce you to the possibilities was to invite you to our Jumbo Blog Hop! You will not believe the amazing projects their in-house, decorative painting guru Tammie Wilson has made with these beautiful stamps. We’re going to start off our hoppin’ here with some of her amazing creations. You’ll be able to see how to make these fabulous treasures on our new series of YouTube videos very soon. For now, enjoy Tammie’s genius then hop on over to the blogs of our dynamic Design Team. You won’t believe the gorgeous possibilities of these new, jumbo designs from the mind of our own Fran Seiford.

Here we go... First up the gorgeous and fabulous Cling Jumbo Hydrangea set...

I stamped the hydrangea flowers with 2 different purple shades of chalk in and the stem in chalk ink as well. I added some violet glitter from one of the amazing Glitz sets and also added some pretty Blue Violet Ultra Fine Crystal Glitter. The sentiment is also from a terrific new set called Friendship Assortment. A really easy and fun card to make that makes a bold statement. Those Jumbo images really pop and make card making simple and beautiful.

Next up is the sweet Cling Jumbo Butterfly Pair set...

I stamped this beautiful butterfly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copics. I added some sparkle with Multi Ultra Fine Crystal Glitter. The sentiment is also part of a new set called Sincere Sentiments. I added the background pattern using another new set called Daisy Thanks stamped with Versamark ink.

Now get to hopping... you have until Feb. 2nd to leave a comment on each blog for your chance to win some wonderful Stampendous prizes.

Stampendous Sneak Peak!!!

Hi Friends! I'm back with another Stampendous Sneak Peak just for you. I am so excited to finally be able to share with you what I have been creating for our January 2011 catalog. Today's cards feature 2 beautiful new floral sets named Narcissus and Daisy Thanks. I love all the new floral stamps Stampendous created for the new catalog. I stamped and colored my first image with Copics and added some Multi Ultra Fine Crystal Glitter. I apologize for the photos. I was so excited to submit my cards that I forgot to photograph them at home. These pics were taken with my Iphone, so it's hard to see the glitter. Believe me it really sparkled! I added a few pearls and some lace ribbon to give it a more delicate touch.

On my second card I stamped the image and colored in the daisies using white pigment ink. I colored the center of the flowers, the stems and the ladybug using Copics. I used some Lemonade Yellow Fun Flock for texture to the center of the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed today's sneak peaks. Please be sure to join us tomorrow at 10am PST as we will be having another fun Stampendous Blog Hop. Thank you all for joining us last time and all your sweet comments. So glad so many of you won goodies last time! Everyone will have another chance to win some goodies with tomorrow's blog hop as well.

I will be attending CHA tomorrow and hope I get a chance to meet lots of you!!!
Thanks for visiting and Have a wonderful day!
