Our terrific Design Team have been posting some of their great creations for Halloween this week. If you haven’t had a chance to visit their blogs, do stop by and leave them some love!
Our sweet Pumpkin Pals just look like they’re having such a good time!
Our own Jamie Martin shared them here on her blog this week –
Kathi Rerek has been playing with the sweet House-Mouse Designs® stamp Chipmunk Treats.
These cards, and others they’ve shared this season, are just perfect for those of you who don’t want anything “too scary” for your Halloween/Fall projects! Fran also made this great video for our recent Virtual Catalog Party, sharing some fun ideas for great Fall Cards!
The House-Mouse and Friends Design Challenge Blog offers challenges every two weeks to keep you playing with your House-Mouse, Gruffies, and Happy Hoppers stamp images. If you create a card for the challenge and post it anywhere online, you can enter to win a great prize. To check out their bi-weekly challenges, visit the HMFCB Site.
The current challenge is Christmas (or Anything Goes), and we were so excited to see all of the HMFCB teamies using new images from the Stampendous House-Mouse Designs® collection! The blog has lots of inspiration, as well, for your own Holiday greetings featuring the House-Mouse characters. Plus, our own Design Team has been sharing with these fun friends, and you can find their posts here –
We are thrilled to be back playing with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers in their Blog Hop. This event is always so much fun and sooooo filled with PRIZES!!
Wow, how to win?? So first, dig out your stamps (or click on the picture above and buy our cute little House-Mouse Designs® friends who are enjoying a cookie with their coffee!) and make a sweet card singing the praises of coffee (or chocolate, or tea, or other caffeinated joy), post it somewhere on the internet and get the direct link to it, then click on the image below and pop over to the main blog post to link your card to the challenge.
Our Design Team is playing along, and they will each be able to award a great coffee image to a lucky commenter on their blogs (U.S. Addresses only). Check out their creations – you have until November 8th to comment or enter the challenge above.
Winner can select wood mounted or Cling Rubber for this prize. Look at this sweet cookie holder made by our in-house Sample Artist Debi Hammons! She slipped a two-pack of Mother’s cookies into the pouch, but you could add coffee packets or other treats. A great treat for teacher or classroom! You can find the supply list and directions for this project by clicking on the picture.

We’re back again, after the spooking has faded a bit, our trick-or-treaters have hung up their costumes for another year, and all the good ghouls and boys are home eating their candy. It’s time again to count our blessings and be grateful for all we have in our lives. Our Design Team is celebrating this Season of Thanks with some great projects this week to inspire you for Thanksgiving.
Several of them have used our wonderful Fall Arrangement Perfectly Clear Stamps Set. This set is so versatile, it can run from Halloween right into Autumn and Thanksgiving. We bet you’d love one!

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!

We have a veritable forest of tree images here at Stampendous! They are among our most popular choices. Trees make great cards for men and guys, always a challenge, and they just lend themselves to any occasion or greeting! We looked at Christmas Trees on MONDAY and Halloween and Fall options on WEDNESDAY. Today we’re going to take a gander at some of our “everyday” trees for those cards you need all year.
