A Season of Thanks!

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

Our team will be sharing all week, but here are some samples from last year that feature this adorable stamp:

Sharing today from the Stampendous Design Team… go leave some love for :

31 Days of Halloween – October 8th

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

We’re back with some spooky fun this week and a new prize being offered. This week we celebrate our super fun Halloween Hats Cling Rubber Stamps and Die Set! 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!  We’ll be giving a set away for comments on this post or on our SPECIAL 31 Days of Halloween Page.  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.

Welcome to 31 Days of Halloween – Day 1

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

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.

It’s time for 31 Days of Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

 

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:

31 Days of Halloween – Stampendous

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!

We’re Sticking with Scrapbook Adhesives!

Scrapbook Adhesives Holiday Blog Hop

 

All week long we are hopping with the design team from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. They’ll be sharing some of our newest holiday products while we show you how to stick in style with their amazing adhesives.

In case you missed Monday’s posts, check out the Stampendous Post and the Scrapbook Adhesives Post.

You KNOW there are prizes! We’ve got three lovely prize packages this week. Each includes a really fun selection of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products and one of our new Cling Stamp and Die sets (sssh… it’s a surprise!). How do you win??

Well, first leave us a comment below, then visit the

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog

and leave them a comment.

THEN click on this Rafflecopter Link  (it’s on their blog, too) and follow the instructions there. Easy! U.S. winners only, and our Official Rules are always HERE.

Today we want to share another amazing sample with our Winter White Cling Stamps and Cutting Dies Set. Snowflakes are always among our most popular choices, and when they have matching dies you can just cut out a flurry of them for some really great projects.

 

Winter White by Fran Seiford

We use only Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L’s  3D Foam Adhesive Squares for popping up our elements here at Stampendous. They very generously supply them to us for all of our Store Display boards and we’re super grateful for their generosity! Here, Fran used them to pop up some new snowflakes over a gorgeous alcohol ink background by Jennifer Dove.  Jennifer airbrushed a glossy white card with Copic Markers then spritzed it with Copic Blending Solution in a spray bottle. You can do this same technique with watercolors spritzed with water, or alcohol inks sprayed directly on the card. The perfect spot for your greeting may vary, so your cards will be different, just like snowflakes. Create your backgrounds a whole sheet at time and cut up for your cards. You can see this card up close by clicking on it above.

Come back tomorrow for more inspiration and more hopping fun!!
