Halloween Kiddos Week

It’s almost time to leave our celebration of Halloween images! This week we’re playing with our newest Kiddos. These cuties do all the things your kids do, you can see the whole collection on our website HERE.

For Halloween our little girl is dressed up as a Pumpkin, and our little boy as a Burglar. They’re just as sweet as can be. They’re both available in wood mounted or cling rubber styles on our website or in your favorite stamping/scrapbooking store.  Find a store near you with our Dealer Locator

Today, BlogStar Rhea Weigand has a terrific project for you featuring our Pumpkin Kiddo along with another of her fabulous coloring guides! So Pinnable!! Enjoy!

Hello, Rhea here to bring you a fun last minute Halloween card.  This week with Stampendous we are showcasing our Halloween Kiddos.  I also wanted to play with the awesome Haunting Background Stamp.

To create the Haunting Background I air-brushed a little BV17, V08, YR16 and YG17 on GLOSSY PAPER.  Then spritzed it with alcohol.  The alcohol causes the ink to “run away screaming”  Pretty fitting being that it is halloween 🙂  After the paper is dry stamp image with Archival Ink.  Now you are done.

Next just color your little kiddo.  Here are the colors I used.

Leaf Kiddos are “Leafing” Summer Behind

Our new Leaf Girl Kiddo and Leaf Boy Kiddo stamps are so cute, you’ll want both to create fun and festive cards for fall, back to school, and autumn fun scrapbook pages! They’re perfect for our September Challenge – Fall Fun!  These two great images are available in wood mounted and Cling Rubber™ options.

Our Cling Rubber™ has a cling vinyl label with the image printed full-sized for easy positioning and extra vinyl around the image to securely adhere to your acrylic handle and to give you a convenient handle for removing the stamp from the block.  When you get our cling stamps, simply bend the stiff acetate packaging at the corner and separate it from the cling label. Be sure to save the acetate so you can store your stamp and keep it free from glitter, embossing powder, dust, etc.  Here’s a quick video to show you how they work:

They’re just so cute, you’ll want them both!

We know you do, too.
