It’s that time again, when all coffee-loving and caffeine-addicted stampers gather and hop along together to celebrate all things coffee! Stampendous is always excited to play along, and we’ve got some fun for you today.
Our House-Mouse Designs friends are having a Coffee Break on this new stamp we released in April! You could win it in your choice of wood or cling rubber mounted styles plus a $20 Stampendous Reward Card to spend on our website. We’ll give away two prizes over on the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop post page.
If the good folks at the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop choose your name, we’ll send you this wonderful stamp plus a $20 reward card to use on the Stampendous website. U.S. Winners only. Our official contest rules are always HERE.
We have some winners from our Sassy Silhouettes week of posts. Each of these two people will get both sets of the Sassy Silhouettes! Please email us at email@example.com with your U.S. mailing address so we can send your prize out to you. Congratulations!

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 Colwellshared 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:
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 –
Wowzer!! This was created with even more of Andy’s great stamps like –
Finally, there aren’t words for how much we love this amazing creation with its faux drawers and all kinds of ghastly goodies!
Wow, right? We are just loving her work. You can see lots more of Candy’s amazing work by visiting her blog and following her on social media. Here are all her links –
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!
We’re super excited about Teresa winning! She’s also doing the 31 Days of Halloween on her blog, AND she’s doing the Cat Lover’s Blog Hop! Obviously Teresa is on the same wavelength with us! Congrats, girl! Email us at email@example.com and send us your mailing information!
Congratulations, you two!! We can’t wait to send you your goodies! Email us as soon as possible!
