Friday Haunts

A little carefree Friday here on our blog as we’ve been hard at work flaunting our haunts all week and it’s time for due recreation and relaxation.

You’ve probably seen this little skater, Amanda, this week who has figured out her flight path for Halloween from round the house to around the block on Halloween night. She’s pretty excited about the haul of treats she’ll find!

Every haunt needs a place to relax and we have just the right set of stamps to create it. Our Spooky House Perfectly Clear Stamp Set has all the essentials to not only make the perfect house, but also familiars to make the house a home. We love this set to pieces.

Let’s start with Halloween Haunts Perfectly Clear Stamps Set. Just look at all these spooky good Halloween images in one set! They are sized to work perfectly on small treat bags or stamp them all together for a fantastic scrapbook border.

Have fun creating all sorts of great combinations for stylish gifts and cards with Witchy Legs Perfectly Clear Stamps Set. It is great to add to a fun scrapbook page or a fantastic little wickedly witch theme gift.

SSC1230 Witchy Legs Perfectly Clear Stamp Set

This handmade gift box with a stylish tag will be grabbed up in a flash at your Witches Hat party! The witch legs are made combining the legs and striped skirt for a lengthy tag to talk about. We love the addition of the stamped creepy spider to the box for a great pattern paper. That little spider is in the Skeleton Style Perfectly Clear Stamps Set, but that stamp set is for another theme week coming soon!

Gathering All Snowflakes

At Stampendous we believe it’s not a finished project unless it sparkles and this week’s Build a Snowman theme is the perfect companion for our snowy Essentials products. Be on the lookout for projects made with these products while you are hopping around our design teams blogs.  If you missed seeing projects earlier this week then hop on over to Monday’s post.

Our newest release in July has a 3-D embossing powder with the essence of snow captured because it sparkles and when heated it turns puffy like snow!

EP525 Sparkle Puff 3-D Embossing Powder

It’s such a fantastic way to create large puffy snowflakes! Here’s a card by Laura Drahozal that uses Snowflake Sky Background stamp with Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder and our beautiful Antler Snowflake Stencil covered with Crystal Glitter as the main focus. You can check our her project on our website for all the details.

We have three ways to mix up some snow for your projects! Create a blue wintry affect that is all aglitter. The Frantage Winter Micro Glitter Kit will work with any adhesive and great with our Sticky Panels adhesive sheets.  Build up some fantastic snow drifts with the encrusted jewel technique using our all white embossing enamels and essentials kit of the same name. If it is easy you need then Spoonful of Snow with it’s premix of enamels, glitter and shaved ice are the product for you! Three fabulous snow building kits ready for your snow card or scrapbook page.

Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?

Let’s Go Wild

This week we are embarking on a journey to see the wonderful wild animals that are new to the Stampendous PenPattern collection. You might just want to grab your safari gear, because it is going to be a week of adventure and wonder!

Our first stop is to see this wading hippopotamus that is a great image to doodle in the open spaces or color him in a fun and interesting way.

This hippo card by Janelle is making the blues go away with a neatly colored purple hippo using Chameleon Pens and a sentiment from Loving Messages Perfectly Clear Stamps Set to cheer up someone for the day.

PenPattern Hippo by Janelle Stollfus

Our posing frog is all eyes for a few doodles, even the lily pad is a perfect open space for doodles to take float. Enjoy a frog in many different colors and styles with a combination of color and doodles. Now who can resist that face?

Q214 PenPattern Frog Wood Mounted Stamp

One particular colorist, Jennie Lin Black, couldn’t resist and made a gorgeous monoprint paper to tame the vibrant markings of this exotic colored frog. She even added some texture with a combination of Frantage Color Fragments

Jennie used a great sentiment for her card that is part of our Wild Sayings Perfectly Clear Stamps Set. It is a great companion to all of our wild animals this week with 16 different sentiments, some for a great chuckle to go along with your doodled wild animal, plus you can never be without a clawed paw print for added emphasis to your card.

Out on a Stroll with our Perfect Pets

Today we’re looking into our perfect pets and a special activity of their day.  These House-Mouse pets set the bar pretty high as they calmly walk along.

Monica is taking her reptile pets out for a little bit of exercise and just the right pair of reptiles to walk at the same time. So well behaved, are they really that good or is Monica a reptile walking guru? In either case, this is such an adorable image and a great image to put on a card to send to our veterinarians who help keep our own pets happy and healthy. What project idea would you use with Reptile Walk.

Jennie Lin Black is sending some mice wishes with her Reptile Walk card. Adorably colored and a great any occasion card.

The sentiment on Jennie’s card is from the Beary Mice Perfectly Clear Stamps Set that includes 17 adorable phrases to go along with numerous House-Mouse Designs stamps and Stampendous stamps.

Pop Up Puppies Abound

We’re back today with more adorable puppies! These incredible little hounds can be made by the dozen, cut out with the coordinating dies and mix and matched for scrapbook pages, cards, party favor bags and more. Our in-house team was producing samples by the litter for our catalog that we are sharing here on the blog this week to show they are just that much fun to use!

What’s more thoughtful gesture as sending a card to someone who adores bow-wow’s of all kinds than a card with one popping out of a birthday box. This terrier Fido is ready to celebrate that someone’s birthday with a lot of heart. Heart balloons that is, that are added to the tabs of the Pop Up Die panel with the pretty pup up front and ready for the party! Here Fido borrowed a bow from the Pop Up Kitties Stamp Set so she would be dressed up for the party. So many wonderful parts to this card that make up such a great surprise inside the birthday card.

Pop Up Puppies Balloons by Debi Hammons

This next card has a well-behaved pup sitting along a tree-lined path to encourage the card’s recipient with a sentiment from the Life Words Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. It is certain, that it will be a treat to see for whoever opens up this card!

The Frugal Crafter, Lindsay Weirich inked up her set of Pop Up Puppies Stamp Set and made a video of her super quick card for a birthday party her son was invited to attend. She is a testament to creating great projects when you are strapped for time and still getting great results. Her card turned out so adorable! See for yourself just how quickly she put together her card!

We’ve warmed up the inspiration stage with some puppy play and there is more from these designers sharing their special hound projects today on their blogs!
