Curios Collection




Stampendous® has a new cool stamp that debuted in the January 2018 catalog, our new Curio Rubber Stamps.  They're awesome stamps that are made with the same wonderful, gray, graphic rubber that our regular stamps use, but, their mounts are really cool, full-color, three-dimensional wood blocks that are fun to stamp with or just sit there looking cute.  I plan to collect them all so I can have them to stamp with or just look at for inspiration or a smile!  My card today uses CURIO Butterfly Stretch.

Blossom Vase & Mixed Mesh


The January 2018 Stampendous Catalog has been released and debuts our new line of 6" x 6" cling rubber stamp line.  For my card today, I've used the awesome Cling Mixed Mesh Rubber Stamp.  It's my personal favorite as it has so many of the fun elements usually created by applying several different layers of techniques.  You get your script writing, bubble wrap, book print and stencil look all in one stamp!  Just add ink, paint, or whatever medium you prefer!  This card also uses Blossom Vase.  I loved the circles on the vase and it was a great way to showcase the circles from the background stamp that ties the two together.  It turned out to be a super bright and happy card that made me smile!
