It’s That Spooky Time of Year!

clear stamps for Halloween

It’s that fun time of year when our Halloween stamps are haunting our sleep with project ideas galore. We love seeing what folks make with our images, and we just can’t stop stamping these creepy/cool images and coloring them in then putting them on cards, home decor, or other fun projects.

We hope you’ll share any projects you make this season with us! We have a Stampendous Fans Facebook Group where folks share their creations and get to tell each other how fun they are! Here’s a link to join! https://www.facebook.com/groups/Stampendous/

Here’s a fun project Fran created using our Beware Witch Cling Set and our new  WindowRama Chipboard kit.

Have you ever made paper? We’d love to hear about your experiences if you have! At Stampendous, we’ve been making handmade paper for decades, and we even used to distribute the wonderful Arnold Grummer’s Papermaking Kit to our retail stores. We reconnected with this great company at the Creativation show this year. They proposed a fun blog hop! We sent Stampendous products to their team, and they provided papermaking kits to ours.

For the next two weeks, we’ve got some great projects to share with you as the teams play with the wonderful products we’ve exchanged.

Today, check out this beautiful creation by Becky Conley. Click on her name, or the picture to learn more about how she made it!
