Pink Your Christmas – Wednesday

Pink Your Christmas Banner

We’re celebrating the darling Whisper Friends by Nicoletta Zanella for Pink Your Life.

Nicoletta herself made some adorable samples for our July Catalog this year. We just love her flair for bright, fun colors and happy scenes featuring these whimsical characters.

Check out her video sharing some Christmas creating with these wonderful stamps.

And look at this adorable tag tutorial! Nicoletta’s colors are always so vibrant and fun.

This charming project certainly bears sharing again. What a delightful gift this would make for someone:

Here, Nicoletta shares another great holiday tag idea –

 

Our Design team is sharing today, as well! Be sure to check out the blog posts for these delightful projects –

Welcome to another week with Stampendous. This week we are focusing on the darling holiday images from Pink Your Life designer, Nicoletta Zanella. Her whimsical characters are celebrating a charming Whisper Friends Christmas, and we have created, this year, some sets that feature stamps and coordinating dies. Such a help when making those stacks of holiday cards.

It’s the 29th Day of Halloween!! Doomsday!!!

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

Halloween is almost here!  😀  And almost over! 😦

We’ve had so much fun this month, sharing our great Halloween products and projects with you.

We have a super special guest today! Candy Colwell shared this FANTASTIC project over on mixed media artist and stamp designer Andy Skinner’s blog the other day, and WOW… we had to contact her right away to ask if we could share here, too!

She showed us that she had even more fantastic projects, and now we’re just a little fangirl over her wonderful work. She’s been using the amazing Andy Skinner stamps, both new and previous, and it’s wonderful!

Take a look at her Doomsday Clock! (you can click on the pictures to be taken to the tutorial)

His arms move to the “time” of your choice! The skulls dangling from chains on his wrists…. the faux finishing… the great greyboard gates and bits from Tando Creative… oooooh… swoon! Candy used a ton of great products to make this fantastic project, including:

Andy Skinner’s Cling Rubber Stamps – Toxic

Andy Skinner's Cling Rubber Stamps - Birds and Bones
Andy Skinner’s Cling Rubber Stamps – Birds and Bones

 

Candy was kind enough to point us to another fabulous piece of hers that she did for Andy Skinner’s Blog – (again, clicking the picture will take you to the tutorial).

This is The Bird Brain –

31 Days of Halloween, Still Spooking Along!

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

Halloween is almost upon us! We hope you’re enjoying all the amazing inspiration. Everyone has really outdone themselves with fantastic projects this year! You can see all the links for the month over on our 31 Days of Halloween Page!

We have a wonderful Mother/Daughter project to feature this weekend. Elina P and her 9-year-old daughter, Siouxann, decided to get out our terrific Costume Stack Perfectly Clear Stamps and make some awesome Halloween cards!

This set, like all of our “short stacks” sets is so cute and fun with heads, bodies, legs, arms, hats, and other accessories being interchangeable. The one trick to them is that they don’t have “necks”. Once you stamp them, you’ll see how it goes together, but just stamp the head right on to the body, and it will be obvious. We do get questions about the necks though. (poor Drac… it confuses him something fierce) (but we noticed Siouxann got it right away!) We find using them completely addicting.

 

Here’s the actual stamp set –

Here’s a video from last year where the Crazy Paper Chick shares her idea of using just the heads from the Costume Stack set. We really love that idea!!

Our own Fran Seiford had a lot of fun with our Costume Stack as well. You can see all her samples on our website, and her video about the set is right here –

And while we’re at it, take a look at the Woodsy Stack, after all, Halloween won’t last forever!

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

Welcome back to the 31 Days of Halloween! If you’ve been following every day, you know we have shared some wonderful inspiration, and our team has really outdone themselves! If you need the link lists and such, click the picture above!

Today we want to share some awesome Halloween cuteness with you, using some images you didn’t think were necessarily for Halloween!

The amazing team at Pink Your Life has made some adorable cards with the fun summer images we released in April. The girl and boy pirates are available in Cling Rubber or Wood Mounted while the pirate set is a set of Perfectly Clear Stamps. Here are the stamps and some summer cards we made featuring them:

 

But Halloween approaches and many a young one wants to be a buccaneer and pretend to sail the seven seas, so the Pink Your Life design team had some fun with these images. Take a look at this cute Halloween Step Card by Sandra Ghidara:

And this adorable spinner card where your pirates are afloat on the deep blue:

Enjoy these sweet Halloween ideas and visit our 31 Days of Halloween page again tomorrow for additional inspiration.

Leave us a comment here or on the 31 Days of Halloween page and we’ll draw one winner for a Pink Your Life Boy Pirate in Cling Rubber, a Pink Your Life Girl Pirate in Cling Rubber and a Pink Your Life Pirates Perfectly Clear Stamps Set. (one winner gets all three). U.S. Mailing Addresses only. Our Official Rules always live HERE.
