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!

Halloween Labels – Potion Safety

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

We’re back today with a little public service announcement about your witch’s potions. It’s always so important to label them correctly! Using eye of newt when you needed toe of frog, as we all know, can be an utter disaster. That’s why we’ve created this wonderful Cling Rubber and Cutting Die Set this year – Halloween Labels. You can click on the picture to be taken to the product on our website.

In our own dungeon at Stampendous, we created these marvelous bottles to hold glitters, mica, and other sparkly things with which we make magic every day.

The amazing Lea Fritts from our design team made this wonderful coffin….see, this is the kind of thing that happens when potions go bad!

31 Days of Halloween – Day 10

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.

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.

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!
