31 Days of Halloween – Oct 25

31 Days of Halloween Banner

We are sharing a fun and spooky post today from in-house Sample Artist Debi Hammons featuring the undisputed King of the Macabre, our Poe Poetry stamp. This great image makes it so easy to make wonderful Halloween greetings or mixed media projects. With little or no coloring you can achieve a terrific effect like Debi did. You can click on the card to be taken to the project on our website.

Raven Wrap Up!

Ravens Ruled this week on our blog! We’re so glad you could join us!

Several of our Design Team Members made great samples using our Crows and Ravens, but they were posting with the Dreamweaver/Core’dinations collaboration and didn’t have another chance to post their projects! We wanted you to see them here.

Clicking on a photo below will take you to that project on our website with full supplies and instructions so you can get flying with us.

Thanks for joining us this week!!

Counting(down) Crows to Halloween

Stampendous crow and raven stamps are among our very top sellers this time of year!  In addition to our new Crow Caw stamp, and our classic Raven Background stamp, we also have our terrific Crowscape! This large background stamp is perfect for adding any focal point or greeting! Take a look at this amazing card from Jennifer Dove featuring this image! Love how she tore the top then “stitched” it closed!

A Murder of Crows!

Yes, a group of crows is called a murder (not a flock)! No wonder they’re associated with being up to no good! Crows and ravens habitually steal things. They are typically scavengers and will eat just about anything, including dead animals, so they’re often associated with death. They are, however, extremely family-oriented birds that care a great deal about their… uh… murder members?!

Here at Stampendous they just make great rubber stamps. Iconic images that are perfect for your Halloween greetings! Check out this terrific card by Wend Jordan featuring our Raven Background stamp! Wow! The Trick or Treat Color Fragments she used around the edges really set off the central design!

Ravens Rule!

Is there anything cooler or more evocative of a frosty Halloween night than the sight of an ominous, black raven? These birds are among the smartest in the animal kingdom, actually using tools to find food. They can even be taught to talk.

Stampendous offers some great raven/crow images for your spooky stamping pleasure, including a new one this year, Crow Caw! Isn’t he gorgeous?!

M316 Crow Caw in Wood Mounted style. Also available in Cling Rubber.
