Raven Wrap Up!

Ravens Ruled this week on our blog! We’re so glad you could join us!

Several of our Design Team Members made great samples using our Crows and Ravens, but they were posting with the Dreamweaver/Core’dinations collaboration and didn’t have another chance to post their projects! We wanted you to see them here.

Clicking on a photo below will take you to that project on our website with full supplies and instructions so you can get flying with us.

Thanks for joining us this week!!

Counting(down) Crows to Halloween

Stampendous crow and raven stamps are among our very top sellers this time of year!  In addition to our new Crow Caw stamp, and our classic Raven Background stamp, we also have our terrific Crowscape! This large background stamp is perfect for adding any focal point or greeting! Take a look at this amazing card from Jennifer Dove featuring this image! Love how she tore the top then “stitched” it closed!

A Murder of Crows!

Yes, a group of crows is called a murder (not a flock)! No wonder they’re associated with being up to no good! Crows and ravens habitually steal things. They are typically scavengers and will eat just about anything, including dead animals, so they’re often associated with death. They are, however, extremely family-oriented birds that care a great deal about their… uh… murder members?!

Here at Stampendous they just make great rubber stamps. Iconic images that are perfect for your Halloween greetings! Check out this terrific card by Wend Jordan featuring our Raven Background stamp! Wow! The Trick or Treat Color Fragments she used around the edges really set off the central design!

Ravens Rule!

Is there anything cooler or more evocative of a frosty Halloween night than the sight of an ominous, black raven? These birds are among the smartest in the animal kingdom, actually using tools to find food. They can even be taught to talk.

Stampendous offers some great raven/crow images for your spooky stamping pleasure, including a new one this year, Crow Caw! Isn’t he gorgeous?!

Friendly Witch Friday

Well, it’s finally Friday this week, and the witches of Stampendous have to get brewing their Halloween potions! We hope you’ve enjoyed your magical week of bewitching creations! We want to leave you with a last few gorgeous projects.

We’re sharing here this terrific creation from Jennie Lin Black! She shared it on her blog earlier in September HERE. A far cry from Macbeth’s three hags, these are the cutest three witches you’ll ever see! Those darling House-Mouse Designs® friends are ready to ride away on their broom! Do you think they’ll leave little pumpkin Mudpie behind? Jennie did the most amazing work on the bricks in this picture. She explains how she did it on her blog post.

Finally – be sure to join us next week when we’ll be collaborating with Dreamweaver Stencils (always fun!) and Core’dinations Cardstocks (even more fun!) for a terrific blog hoppin’ week with great prizes! We’ll be getting our Christmas on!  AND our Halloween explorations will continue with some posts devoted to the Stampendous ravens and crows – Ravens Rule!  Lots going on next week!

 

Cackling Witch Fun

We love a great Halloween invitation, one that shows exactly how much fun will be had if we go! And oh, it would be great to share in our scrapbook pages afterwards. Our Witchy Dance Stamp can accomplish this and more with some creative imagination.

But it’s also awesome for your Halloween party decor, like this gum ball machine created by Debbie Cole to entertain trick or treating guests. If you’d like to make one, too, you can find the unfinished gumball machine from Viking Wood Products HERE. They generously sent one to Debbie for this project.

There’s more projects to entice you to watch our witchy wonders this week.
