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.
The wonderful Janelle Stollfus from our Design Team created some incredible Potion Bottles using plastic milk and juice bottles and some wonderfully drippy Frantage Embossing Enamels. You can click the picture to be taken to the project supplies and instructions.
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!
But Lea keeps her potion ingredients all organized in great jars like these below!

We’re pretty excited about sharing our wonderful projects with you this week! We’ve got some extra projects from some amazing decorative painters to share as well. Let’s start by looking at what our Design Team is sharing today:
The time for Holiday stamping is here! And this year, why not add some Elements of Excitement to your Christmas and holiday creations? Our July Catalog featured a really nice, two-page spread showcasing the Embossing Powders and Glitters that are just so perfect for seasonal glimmer and warmth.
These sparkly and super dynamic elements are perfect for Fran’s Encrusted Adhesive Technique and Glitzy Adhesive Technique. Both of these techniques allow you to make dynamic cards with a ton of bling and excitement! A perfect example is this great card by Design Team Member Kristine Reynolds. You can click on it to see the project instructions and supplies.
This great card also features one of our brand new elements, Twinkle Glitter! This super cool glitter is ultra shiny and full of random shapes, so the light just bounces off of it in every direction. So lush and fantastic!
And it comes in a really big jar! Bet you’d like to win some… !!! We’ll send three winners their own jar of new Twinkle Glitter. U.S. addresses only, OFFICIAL RULES LIVE HERE. Just leave us a comment below on any post this week and tell us your favorite thing about holiday stamping!

In our Lighthouse Day giveaway, we’d like to congratulate
oooh, and we’d really love to read her story about a haunted lighthouse! But meanwhile, Kayla, email us your mailing info and we’ll get your stamp right out to you. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
The holiday season is approaching, and it’s time to give some thought to gifts you might make for friends and loved ones. Of course nothing says, “I love you” like a handmade gift.
With stamps and stencils, you have soooo many options. And our new Decor Cling Rubber Stamps make a super easy way to transfer a pattern to a home decor piece. They are big, at 8″ X 8″ they can help you get a job done quickly, or even work on a very small card or tag, or stamp a few at one time.
Here’s a look at the Decor Snowflakes stamp. There are four other designs available.
Our Dreamweaver and Fran’s Metal Stencils are also a phenomenal way to create homemade gifts from the heart. Like this gorgeous canvas from Mixed Media Artist Mark Gould.
A few great designers are sharing some fun ideas to get you started:

We’re celebrating our newest stamp license, Laurel Burch, all week this week. Be sure to check out Monday’s post HERE, if you missed it. We’re really excited to share our projects with you, and we can’t wait to see what you make using these fun, exciting stamp images.
Artist Laurel Burch began her creative journey at a very young age. First known for her signature jewelry designs, she eventually developed her own unique style of folk art painting. She celebrated our connection to the Earth and all living things with bright, vibrant colors and images of cats, dogs, jungle creatures, international women and so much more. We’ve captured her look in a collection of two large Cling Rubber stamp sets with coordinating Die Sets, two Perfectly Clear Stamps Sets, and 14 individual images available in both Cling Rubber and Wood Mounted styles. You can explore the whole collection, along with all our sample projects on our website HERE.
Our Design Team have also been exploring these great images and have posted some wonderful samples on their blogs. Here’s who is playing today –
