Spring Break in Autumn!

Join Stampendous and the team this week as we sneak peek some of our favorite new images coming out in the October catalog!



The leaves are changing on our trees and the brisk morning air is leading us into fall, eventually winter, so wouldn't it be perfect to have a look forward with a little spring time fun!

Stampendous is releasing spring theme products in October and OH are they fun! I had my eye on this happy little House-Mouse Designs Lucky Clover image to share ever since I saw it. But what I also couldn't wait to do was add in a border with the new Spring Borders Die Set and a sweet Mandala Bloom embossed background.

Remember, you will be able to see these and more on the Stampendous website in October. Find out as soon as they go live by getting the Stampendous Newsletter (scroll down the main page of their website to sign up) or subscribe to the Stampendous blog.
