Stampendous is HOPPING!!


Stampendous has released three amazing new Cling Jumbo stamps, and they are jaw-droppingly gorgeous! We are so excited about the new stamps, the Design Team and BlogStars are blog hopping to celebrate. If you've never used a Cling Jumbo stamp, you don't know what you are missing! The stamps are HUGE, and cover a ton of area. I love that about them - they are perfect for cards, art journaling, scrap pages, canvas.fabric projects, home decor.....the possibilities are endless. And when you get the Cling Jumbo Perfectly Clear handle, life is just peaches and cream ;)

First up today I'm showing off the new Cling Jumbo Tulip set. Tulips, in case you didn't know, are one of my two favorite flowers (the others are daisies, which I've already talked about in this post). I love all of the colors tulips can be, but something about the white ones just say "pure beauty" to me. So for my first project I created a white tulip card, sitting on a background of handmade white paper.


To give my tulip a little extra flair, not that it needed it, I stamped it twice, colored it, and cut it out. The image staying on the bottom got its stem cut off, and then I skewed the top image a bit and popped it up on dimensionals. I also put the stem I cut off underneath the top image's stem, just after I cut it off the bottom piece. I tied on a bit of ribbon and left this one alone! Take a look at the whole stamp set:


I'll give you a minute to recover...I told you it was stunning, didn't I???? Ok, ready to move on? I hope so!


Next up I made a sweet little peek-a-view box. I got the template from Creative Cuts and More. I stamped the Cling Jumbo Dogwood set flower in several places to create a bold pattern against the white card stock, and colored it with Copics.


It isn't embellished because there isn't anything in it yet, other than tissue paper! I haven't decided what to fill it with, but the more I've stared at it on my desk with no ribbon, the harder I've tried to come up with a reason to keep it for myself! I actually really like it just the way it is - the Cling Jumbo Dogwood really makes a statement, doesn't it? Take a look at the whole stamp set:


Another stunner, right? And here's a peek at the Cling Jumbo Tiger Lily, which I'm not showing off today but I'm sure you'll see on someone else's blog! Mine is sitting on my desk, in a safe spot after a waaaay too close encounter with my super inquisitive one-year-old.


Ok, ready for the fun details? You could win one of SIX prizes - two of each Cling Jumbo stamp sets will be given away; each set wll come with a Cling Jumbo handle as well (so really, you'd be winning two prizes!). All you have to do is leave a comment on every stop on the hop between now and Wednesday, June 15th. Winner will be announced on the Stampendous Impressions blog on Friday, June 17th.
