It's a Halloween clear release at Sweet November!

Hey there friends!

We are so very excited here at Sweet November Stamps because today the brand new Halloween clear stamps are finally available! There are nine new stamp sets being introduced in this spook-tacular release, two of which are more background builders that coordinate with the previously released Simple Room Builder set. As always, there is a special going on in the store...  spend $100 or more and you will get the 4x6 Midnight's Halloween Adventures #2 absolutely FREE (while supplies last). There is also FREE SHIPPING on all domestic orders over $75 and $15 flat rate shipping for all international orders over $75, giving you even more ways to save!

My first card features the special promo set, Midnight's Halloween Adventures #2, with the scene where Midnight, the kitten, is trying to howl at the moon just like his werewolf pal. Unfortunately Midnight is a bit out of tune, turning his howl into more of a yowl, LOL! The background scene was put together using a mix of new and old stamp sets. The brick wall is part of the new Halloween Room Background Builder set while the haunted house and moon are from the older Spookville Expansion set. And the mountains in the distance are actually from the Alpine Horizon Lines set. If you are interested in watching how I stamped this scene together, just check out this video on the Sweet November Stamps Youtube channel.

Next we have the confident and stylish vampire from the new It Ghouls set. It looks like we've caught her mid Instagram Live as she takes her ghost pup on a midnight walk through the park. She may love the night life but being a top influencer for the ghoulish crowd is a 24/7 gig! The cobblestone walk is from the Halloween Room Background Builder set and the moon is from that Spookville Expansion pack yet again.

You might have already seen the speed coloring videos for this card already, the full length video is on the Sweet November Stamps Youtube channel while the shorter, edited version can be found on my Instagram Reels. This cutie is Flutterbee Claudia and I paired her with a few of the mix and match pumpkins in the Carve Out Some Fun stamp set. The jack o'lanterns cast an eery glow all around Claudia as she sits in this stone tower room, courtesy of that ever useful Halloween Room Background Builder set.    


Finally for today, I've also made a card featuring the new Halloween Gargoyles. There are three spooky stone statues included in the set and I chose the little guy who looks quite miffed at the raven resting on his head. The bird droppings probably don't help the situation either, LOL! His brick turret is a mix of stamps from both the gargoyle set and that handy dandy Halloween Room Background set.

If you are on Instagram and would like a chance at winning the entire release, we are hosting a two day Instahop and we are once again being joined by our friends at The Crafty Purple Frog (SN UK stockist).
