Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Wednesday.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

This week we’re celebrating Santa and all the fun he brings at Christmastime. We’re giving away one of our Santa On His Way stamps to one lucky commenter on our blog or one of our Design Team blog posts this week! In case you missed Monday’s inspiration or the chance to comment, you can find it here. And, of course, the official rules are always HERE.

Today Santa is flying overhead past a wonderful, coastal lighthouse. His reindeer can use the lovely beams of light to help guide their way. This is another great stamp that just needs a bit of spot color to really fill up a card layer and provide you with a “one and done” holiday greeting. It’s available in both wood mounted and cling rubber and it’s called Lighthouse Christmas.

Season of Thanks banner

While things are still spooking away over on our 31 Days of Halloween page, we are ready to give thanks this month for all the wonderful blessings in our lives. American Thanksgiving is such an awesome holiday, because it’s so important to live with an “attitude of gratitude” and appreciate all the wonderful things we have every day. We like to focus on our blessings, here at Stampendous, and we know you do, too!

Our banner this week features those adorable meeces. Stuffing themselves with that favorite of all deserts, pumpkin pie! To win a stamp of these adorable mice, tell us how you like your pumpkin pie… whipped cream or no? whipped pie or no? warm? cold? or just no?! We’ll choose three winners on Friday from our blog comments all week! Remember, U.S. mailing addresses only (yes, territories count) and our Official Rules all live here – Official Rules

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!

Rose Postcard

Here’s a quick break from all the holidays! We thought we’d share a lovely, everyday stamp with you today, our beautiful Rose Postcard. This stamp is just wonderful because you can just stamp it, and your background and focal point are already done for you. You can add a little color, you can color it very intricately. It’s so versatile! It’s available in wood mounted or Stampendous Cling Rubber.

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.
