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! Go visit our designer blogs, and leave us a comment here telling us who is hosting Thanksgiving this year! We’ll give away all our prizes on Friday! One winner from today, U.S. mailing addresses only. All the rules are always HERE.
Our newest product line at Stampendous features gorgeous 8″ X 8″ stamps with fantastic designs for backgrounds on every kind of project. Cards, scrapbook pages, home decor, decorative painting, mixed media, all of these can use our beautiful Decor Cling stamps to great advantage. There’s even a brand new handle for them which has all sorts of possibilities on its own! We love them! Have a look at this wonderful product!
We’re pretty excited about sharing our wonderful projects with you this week! We’ve got some extra projects from some amazing decorative painters to share as well. Let’s start by looking at what our Design Team is sharing today:
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!!
We want to wish you, our followers and customers, the happiest of Thanksgiving Holidays! As the busiest season of the year shifts into gear, we hope you’re able to spend some time with family and dear ones sharing your gratitude for the folks and blessings in your lives.
We’re truly blessed to have you in our little world of stamping and crafting. Thanks for being here to share it with us!!
It’s amazing how the blog posts just stream along and all the sudden we’ve made it to Friday. Here are some amazing samples by Tobi Crawford . Take a look, click the link and see how she’s created these fabulous cards.
This incredible card features a gorgeous background! Tobi created a fabulous tutorial for one of our blog posts and you can check it out here.
A completely yummy set of rustic tags. See how she made those leaves here. They are gorgeous!
Since we have shared Tobi’s card with House-Mouse Designs Fall Float, it’s only right that we have the Fall Flight stamp appear in the same post. Suzanne Czosek created this stunning sun-kissed card that truly a wonderful project.
If you are in the mood for a doodle session grab our Jumbo Leaves or PenPattern Leaves, but not for the stamps. Of course, it’s for the template that comes with them. Use this template to create your own pattern of leaves and then doodle away!
Debi Hammons used the template with our Sticky Panels to create this glitter leaf design. That is a darling mouse floating through the card is another lovely leaf stamp from House-Mouse Designs Fall Float.
There’s another possible option to decide for your doodling session. If you want to doodle with all the bells and whistle it’s PenPattern Leaves that will jump your doodling session right to the coloring. Use the Creative Palette with some of your favorite coloring mediums to make a paper base that gives each stamped PenPattern leaf it’s unique pattern. See how Kristine Reynolds did it for this beautiful card.
Kristine used the Leaves Cutting Dies to create even more fun to this card. It’s a great bundle of products with tons of ideas waiting to be made.
It’s double-treat day because we have Kristine Reynolds linked with another amazing sample. Let’s see what inspiration she’ll leaf for us on her blog.
The October Halloween Haunt Contest is over and we’ll be starting in on the November Challenge this Friday, that means there was a winner! Is it you? Go check it out if you haven’t yet done so.
Our leafy update: We are still watching our mailbox like a hawk so we can get the Jumbo Stamps and dies back in stock for our theme week. Good news you can still buy them even when our shelf is bare. See the list of online stores on our Tuesday post if you would rather grab them now over later.
Our Lovely Leaves week is moving right along, but something is missing from our line-up. The Stampendous warehouse shelves have a few bare spots where the stamps and dies we are showcasing should be stacked. We were hoping they would be here in time and they just might show up this week. If you would like to get them right now there are some online retailers that have a few in stock.
Here’s a beautiful card from Debi Hammons with those Cling Jumbo Leaves in perfectly real coloring! So amazing!
And then there is this incredible altered cigar box Rhea Weigand created for a blog post using the Cling Jumbo Leaves. You can see the instructions and find out how she created her unexpected fence here.
It’s time for a blog hop of one today, head on over to see how Janelle created with the PenPattern Leaves.
Our Cling Rubber Leaves Sets are just right for creating Fall and Thanksgiving decor and yet so much more with thought it would be fun to share ideas and projects with you for an entire week!
Our newest stamp set to the Stampendous family is PenPattern Leaves that have a fun doodling design already included for easy texture to your project as Monika Thomas used them for her PenPattern Owl Wreath.
It’s even easier to add these leaves to your project with it’s coordinating Cutting Dies! No delicate cutting required.
And here’s another project using our Leaves Stamps with the coordinating Cutting Dies. If you were with us for the Add A Little Dazzle Collaboration week you might have seen this extraordinary wreath on Asia King’s blog. It has so many wonderful pieces to it and we love all the foliage it showcases. You can see more pictures on her blog here.
The design team will be posting throughout the week with inspirations for our Lovely Leaves Weeks. Here’s our first designer blog.
Our theme this week is our Holiday Kiddos stamps. BlogStar Tobi Crawford gets us started with our Leaf Girl Kiddo image for Fall and some great coloring techniques. Be sure to check out these Design Team blogs today with other terrific Kiddos ideas.
Hi there! It’s Tobi here and today I’m celebrating my favourite time of year: AUTUMN, and my absolute fav thing is watching the leaves turn from green to orange, red, yellow and all the shades in between. I think it’s a fun challenge to colour turning leaves with Copic markers. There are many different combos you could play around with, but today I went with the green/orange combo. Check it out:
As you can see here, I started with the greens then went to orange.
Just a little tip: if you’re combining two colours that don’t really go together (green and orange, for example), they should be a light marker. Dark markers will just push against each other and will be stubborn – but light markers will blend nicely!
So once I added the dark orange on the tips of the leaves I had to blend it out a little with the light orange.
