We love our terrific trees here at Stampendous! On MONDAY we took a look at Christmas Trees. Today let’s take a look at the Halloween and Fall side of things! Trees are so great for every season! The team has more Christmas trees for you at the bottom of this post. The wood stamps below are also available in Cling Rubber!
Some Autumn Options:
Of course we have a beautiful array of Fall/Tree/Leaf Stencils as well! You can check them all out HERE.
And, naturally, those darling mice from House-Mouse Designs® are hanging out in the trees as well!
Let’s see what our Design Team has for us today! Trees!!
Here at Stampendous some of the most popular images are those of flora! We have so many flowers and trees and other garden elements, and they are all really popular with our fans. This week we thought we’d take a look at the trees of Stampendous. Christmas Trees, Haunted Trees, Garden Trees, Spring Trees, Stencil Trees, Whimsical Trees… as one designer said, “We could do a whole month!”
Scenic stamping has been popular for decades, and with all of today’s coloring options, it’s more popular than ever. Fran always tries to design our trees so that no masking will be needed for you to work it into your scenic stamping. We hope you’ll enjoy this little walk in the woods! Do let us know how you feel about trees!
Let’s start by sharing with you some of the Christmas Tree Stamps we have. That season is still sneaking up on all of us… sneak… sneak… have you been naughty or nice? We’ll start with the tree!
Let’s see what our Design Team has for us today! Trees!!
from last week’s Get Your “Boo” on giveaway. Thanks everyone for counting up our colored words. Purple was a bit problematic since many of your browsers show the design team links in purple after you’ve viewed them. So your Purple count could have been anywhere from 6 t0 41. We really meant just the spooky words, so we’re not going to let that influence us. We threw everyone in the drawing that bothered to give us some numbers. Our three US winners are:
Congratulations, Winners!! Email us at email@example.com with your mailing address, and we’ll get your Birds and Bones right out to you!
The season of SCARY is coming our way!!! What will you stamp for HALLOWEEN Day??!! We’ve got lots of choices, and this final option comes to us from
mixed media artist Andy Skinner who is always working up something SPOOKY. Take a look at his latest offering, Birds and Bones.
That large image on the left is a bird skull…. ewwwww… cooooool!!! And wait until you see the results!
Wow, right??!! Let’s have a look at the other, available Andy Skinner stamp sets. They’re all wonderful for adding a touch of creepy to your Halloween life or even your everyday stamping! You can find all of Andy’s wonderful images on our website HERE.
Would you like to get your CREEPY on with your very own set of Birds and Bones??? Yeah, we thought you might! So here’s what you need to do. Visit all of our posts from this week.

This week we’re celebrating those cool Elements that make our holiday cards so exciting. And we’re offering a special shout out to our newest family favorite, Twinkle Glitter!
Fran’s Glitzy Adhesive Technique and Encrusted Adhesive Technique are perfect for making a glittering area of bling behind any focal point layer. They’re super easy to do! Just apply a layer of our Sticky Panels, adhere your focal point on the adhesive area, then sprinkle your favorite blings on the remaining, exposed adhesive… Voila!! If you use embossing powder, you’ll want to heat it, but you can mix embossing enamels, glitters, mica, color fragments, glass glitter and more for some ultimate excitement. There are sooo many looks you can achieve!
As you can see, the Design Team has lots to share with you today!! Click below to see more of their great projects, some of them have more than one, because they posted on Wednesday as well! Leave everyone some love so we can enter you in the drawing to win a jar of Twinkle Glitter. (contest details are HERE from Monday). AND, in case this doesn’t give you enough to work on this weekend, here are some videos of Fran demonstrating this incredibly fun and easy technique.
The time for Holiday stamping is here! And this year, why not add some Elements of Excitement to your Christmas and holiday creations? Our July Catalog featured a really nice, two-page spread showcasing the Embossing Powders and Glitters that are just so perfect for seasonal glimmer and warmth.
These sparkly and super dynamic elements are perfect for Fran’s Encrusted Adhesive Technique and Glitzy Adhesive Technique. Both of these techniques allow you to make dynamic cards with a ton of bling and excitement! A perfect example is this great card by Design Team Member Kristine Reynolds. You can click on it to see the project instructions and supplies.
This great card also features one of our brand new elements, Twinkle Glitter! This super cool glitter is ultra shiny and full of random shapes, so the light just bounces off of it in every direction. So lush and fantastic!
And it comes in a really big jar! Bet you’d like to win some… !!! We’ll send three winners their own jar of new Twinkle Glitter. U.S. addresses only, OFFICIAL RULES LIVE HERE. Just leave us a comment below on any post this week and tell us your favorite thing about holiday stamping!
Our design team is sharing their Elements of Excitement this week! Here’s a start from two of our talented designers:
In our Lighthouse Day giveaway, we’d like to congratulate
oooh, and we’d really love to read her story about a haunted lighthouse! But meanwhile, Kayla, email us your mailing info and we’ll get your stamp right out to you. Drop us a line at email@example.com
The holiday season is approaching, and it’s time to give some thought to gifts you might make for friends and loved ones. Of course nothing says, “I love you” like a handmade gift.
With stamps and stencils, you have soooo many options. And our new Decor Cling Rubber Stamps make a super easy way to transfer a pattern to a home decor piece. They are big, at 8″ X 8″ they can help you get a job done quickly, or even work on a very small card or tag, or stamp a few at one time.
Here’s a look at the Decor Snowflakes stamp. There are four other designs available.
Our Dreamweaver and Fran’s Metal Stencils are also a phenomenal way to create homemade gifts from the heart. Like this gorgeous canvas from Mixed Media Artist Mark Gould.
A few great designers are sharing some fun ideas to get you started:
One of our Design Team members tells us that today is Lighthouse Day! (It might be unofficial!) And it just so happens that we have lots of lighthouses if you want to celebrate this very special event! You can find these lighthouse images on our website, of course. Just type “lighthouse” in the search box at the top. They’re also under “Stamps” then “Travel” (and “Scenic” and “Summer”).
Tell us about your trip to a lighthouse! Or have you never been? We’ll give away one of our new Lighthouse Christmas Cling Rubber stamps!
Some of our Design Team are sharing samples of this great image! Take a trip to their lighthouses and leave them some love for more chances to win.
