We thought we’d end our month with some cute and sweet cards made by our own in-house Sample Artist, Debi Hammons!
Thanks so much for playing with us this month! Wow, there was some great inspiration! Remember that all the inspiration will remain linked to our 31 Days of Halloween page so you can visit it again and again. Be sure to check out the rest of our team sharing today
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 Colwellshared 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:
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 –
Wowzer!! This was created with even more of Andy’s great stamps like –
Finally, there aren’t words for how much we love this amazing creation with its faux drawers and all kinds of ghastly goodies!
Wow, right? We are just loving her work. You can see lots more of Candy’s amazing work by visiting her blog and following her on social media. Here are all her links –
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!

We just love having the matching dies for our stamps! It’s so much fun to cut out things and layer them up and up and up!

Each week we’ll draw from all the comments that have been made on that page and on that week’s blog posts.
These Halloween hats fit beautifully on the Pumpkins in this set, but our Sugar Skull can also wear them at a jaunty angle, and we bet you’ll find a lot more perfect fits for these great hats.
We’ve noticed they’re also perfect when paired with our Pop Up Stages! Take a look at how our own Fran Seiford used them here! You can click on the large card to be taken to the project on our website.
Stampendous is excited to be posting to start off this great event with our wonderful new Sugar Skull Cling Stamps and Cutting Dies Set. The theme of this year’s 31 Days of Halloween event is Day of the Dead, so this seemed like the perfect product with which to start.
We’ve had a lot of fun with this product, as you can imagine! Here’s a great sample from our very own Fran Seiford.
Now head on over to the rest of the blogroll for the fantastic first day of 31 Days of Halloween.
It’s here, It’s here! It’s Halloween season, AND time to start your spooky stamping! Stampendous is excited to be playing along again with the 9th annual 31 Days of Halloween at the Zahar Studio blog with our hostess with the ghostess, Terra! In the past this has been limited to stamped projects, but Terra has blown it wide open this year with tons of great options including mixed media and lots of other art styles. You’ll find a ton of inspiration at this event.
The theme this year is Day of the Dead, although any Halloween themed items can be posted. But beware!! Some of it might be kind of spooky! It’s not for the faint-hearted, or those who dislike Halloween.
How it works:
We’ve created a special page which will keep our Halloween Fun easy to find. That page is here:
The links to our Design Team and their amazing Halloween projects will be posted there along with our posts. We will be offering our own prizes, as will many of the other participating blogs. Be sure that you read each blog’s rules for their giveaways, they are all separate and different.
The following blogs have joined as Wicked Bloggers for this event. They will each post every single day. You may find someone new to follow, so check them out! Click on our link, and we’ll see you on the other side!
