Only A Skull Ghoul Can Eek A Boo

It’s a great day for some boo-tiful Halloween images as we continue our week of All in Ones. Fran designed these stamps for easy one-stamping projects to help get through the long mailing lists, but you can also use your creativity and do more. We have samples today that show you how two designers stepped up the creativity with the Halloween themed All in Ones.

Eek A Boo stamp is a sweet pumpkin with a squeaky little friend that works great for mailing list cards, invitations and treat toppers, because it’s a one stamping image. If you want to add a little more creativity you can trim around the edges for a different look.  Jennie Lin Black made up this wonderfully spooky card with a trimmed edge, pairing Eek A Boo with a from Halloween Wish. What a fabulous idea card!

Our next All in One, Skull Ghoul, is ready with pretty posies in her skull-do for a sweet Halloween project made in a snap. To take it up a notch the elements can be hand trimmed for a extra special project.

Let’s take a look at what Wendy Price did when her creativity went straight to decor.

Now isn’t that splendidly skullrific! The solid lines of Skull Ghoul makes it easy to hand trim the image elements for Wendy’s wreath. Now that’s using her noggin!

Our New All in Ones

Fran Seiford, Owner and Founder of Stampendous, understands that holiday card making can be time consuming. Plus, it’s not always easy to find images that go together to make the perfect card. Enter the All in Ones from Stampendous.

All in Ones Stamp Collection

These darling stamps are the perfect size to make a whole card. Easy shapes to cut with scissors or simply stamp on a colored background, these stamps have a focal image, a background, a frame, and a phrase for the holidays. Just stamp it, sign it, mail it. OR get as creative as you like by combining with other stamps and embellishments!

Today we are taking a closer look at All in Ones with an Autumn and Fall theme. These two fun designs are great for seasonal greeting cards and note cards. Here is Scarecrow Kisses with a tweet friend to share in the moment.

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.

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!
