Just a little inspiration to share with you!
Mara's Make & Take at the store this week... a customer of ours (April) then turned hers into a card!
This past weekend we were in Orlando Florida at Stampfest. A group of young ladies came to our booth the first day and fell in love with our medallions and Swarovski Crystals. They purchased the Holly Berry House Valentine Roses Medallion, along with many others. As they purchased it, I told them that my artist (of course the wonderful Mara), told me after she had made the sample that it was the hardest medallion to make. The image doesn't have straight edges!
The following day, these 4 ladies brought the most beautiful medallion back to the booth. This is what they worked on all evening! IT LOOKS WONDERFUL! We were very impressed!!
Liz, Luci, Patricia and Jean; from Fort Lauderdale - GREAT JOB!
How much do we LOVE the new Jumbo Tattered Florals die by Tim Holtz?? Let's just say we are ADDICTED!!... BIG TIME! What fun! And we have them in stock! Give us a call and we'll send yours right out!! (440) 989-2622
(Yes, we added a pen in the image so that you can see how big this die/flowers actually are!)
and they are a GREAT addition to any card! The 5 newest colors from Stampendous include Red, Green, White, Gold and Silver... just in time for holiday cards! You can check out more colors and card samples here.
When you ask 1 of the best artists in the world to make a sample... OF COURSE we get something as beautiful as this! We don't know how you continually get better, but you do. GREAT CARD MARA! This is the Canterbury Cross by Holly Berry House Originals made up the Stamplistic way!

We just LOVE our customers! This past weekend at a stamping convention, a customer - and we did not get her name we are so sorry - showed us this wonderful card she made using our Carousal Deer stamp. She also used dies from Cherry Hill dies and WON a card challenge! Congrats to her... great card and thank you for sharing!!
Sneak peak at what we'll be making this Saturday, March 9, 2013 during Stamp Chat! We are using the Jumbo Cling Amaryllis stamp from Stampendous. GREAT card Mara. (Open to the public, check out our website for more information.)
According to Mara, YES!
But look at how beautiful she made this medallion look! It is the Holly Berry House Originals Valentine Roses Medallion, we just added to our line we take to conventions.
Amazing Mara! Absolutely amazing!

Stamp Chat: The original card making get together. Often imitated, never duplicated.
Most of you have seen this 'Santa' card (Jumbo Cling Vintage Santa) at shows and conventions we have attended. Time and time again we were asked what those "specks" were around his chin/face. We are happy to bring you a video on exactly what it is, AND, how to use it! These elements, by Stampendous, now come together in three different kits; Pink, Purple and Blue.
The best part about our Creative Card Exchange is getting the cards in the mail and tearing open the package to see what's inside. (Tearing open the package nicely that is...) We just received our first swap cards for the February exchange today and wanted to share. (We will do this every so often!!) The theme for February is "All You Need Is Love". The following card was made by Carol Svelnys. Great card Carol!
We just had to share!! As we are getting ready for the 2013 'show season'... we are busy making some new sample cards. As we do so, we'll post them here. The ones we are working on now are from our Stamplistic Collection, the 'Big and Little Series' line of stamps.
Stay tuned... we'll bring them all to you...
A beautiful card recently made by Stampendous using their Jumbo Cling Orchid. To begin, the stamp was inked with black ink and stamped. Once the image was colored, it was cut out and then popped up on a piece of stamped patterned paper. The simple finish with a butterfly embellishment gives the card that added touch. Simply, creative, and very beautiful.
