A fiendishly fun Halloween release at Sweet November!


Hey, hey!

Who's ready to get their spooky on with a fiendishly fun Halloween clear release at Sweet November Stamps?! We are calling it our 'Lucky 13' release because there are thirteen new stamps sets to choose from and six custom SN sequin mixes. Old favorites like the Witchwees and Midnight the kitten are back, and they are joined by many new friends and some fantastic background builders as well. This time around there are a couple specials going on in the store...  spend $150 or more and you will get the 4x8 Lovin' from the Coven stamp set 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. We've also been listening to requests from our digi lovers and for the first time ever we are trying something new... for this weekend only, August 12-14, a digital bundle deal that includes the entire Halloween release will be available for $125. This is a very limited time offer and once the weekend is over the only time you might see it again is during a black Friday or some other special event. Who knows, depending on how this goes you might even see some past clear releases turned into limited run digi bundles as well... we shall see.  ;)

With so many fun new stamps sets, it was hard to choose which three I would showcase first. Ultimately, I settled on this cautiously cute little trick or treater from the 4x8 Tricks No Treats set. The fun thing about this set is that besides the four adorably disgusted kiddos, it also includes two large witchy hands that when layered over the kids, looks like they are being offered some less than tasty treats. To fill out the background on this card I masked off the hand and witch girl then printed the Neighborhood Background Builder digital stamp onto the card front. Apparently, this little girl went to the wrong house on this block, LOL!

Next, we have this beautiful witch from the 6x8 You Look Familiar set. This particular witch is holding her familiar, a rather pampered black cat, while they are joined about another feline friend and a pair of cute little mice. To create the room these familiar friends are all gathered in I first masked them off then stamped in the stone floor from the Background Builder: Halloween Room set and the window from the Halloween Room Add-on. Outside the window you can see a tiny part of the Horizon Lines: Spookville landscape.


Finally for today, I've also made a mini slimline card featuring all three of the modern witches from the 4x8 Lovin' from the Coven set. I stamped them all from the shoulders up to make it look sort of like a snap shot they are posing for. Each of the witches in this cool coven are so goth and stylish, making them really fun to color and create cheeky Halloween cards with. I even added a sprinkling of sequins left over from the new Halloween Treats sequin mix.

Now, if you are on Instagram and would like a chance at winning the entire release, we are hosting a three day Instahop and we are once again being joined by our friends at The Crafty Purple Frog (SN UK stockist). Just search for the #sweetnovemberstamps account to get started. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, the 20th. You can also check out all of the cards over at the Friends of Sweet November Stamps group on Facebook for even more fiendishly fun Halloween inspiration from Caitlin, Lisa, Amanda and Allison as well as our talented digital team and special guest, Christa Mulder! I will also be coloring Live twice each day this weekend, first at 10am then again at 2pm PST on my Adventures in Coloring with Amy Facebook page. And don't forget about the Youtube hop for another chance at winning the entire release that starts tomorrow!
