Not a Creature Was Stirring… except Mice, of Course!

We’re back today with more of our great friends from House-Mouse Designs! Those adorable mice certainly know how to enjoy a holiday!! As we all get ready to enjoy a really big meal, the mice are, as always, interested in food this season.  Take a look a few from our newest offering. All stamps are available in wood mounted or cling rubber!

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 :

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!

Rose Postcard

Here’s a quick break from all the holidays! We thought we’d share a lovely, everyday stamp with you today, our beautiful Rose Postcard. This stamp is just wonderful because you can just stamp it, and your background and focal point are already done for you. You can add a little color, you can color it very intricately. It’s so versatile! It’s available in wood mounted or Stampendous Cling Rubber.

The latest additions to our Pink Your Life Collection by Nicoletta Zanella are just the most adorable Christmas stamps! We love how cute the sets with coordinating dies are! Finally a great way to make scenes and pop ups so easy with these sweet images!

We’re going to share again with these images in November, but we wanted to showcase them because the Pink Your Life team has done some really fun videos with them. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to check them out! These whimsical characters are so fun to color, and they lend themselves to some pretty creative techniques.

We loved these clever frogs in their delightful poses, and the terrific sentiments are just what you need to send an encouraging (or empathetic!) greeting to a friend struggling with staying fit.  And aren’t we all??! We know you’ll be wearing out your green markers on this wonderful group of amphibians! Our team certainly did. Here are a few of the cards they made, we know you’ll be seeing them again later as well.
