Batty Cat Halloween Treat Box!

Great news from Stampendous! The July release has a NEW kind of cling rubber! There's no label like the old kind, picture stays on the acetate liner. Plus, there's are new "Q Sets". Check out the new video to find out some more about them!

The "Q Set" dies leave a little white edge, unlike our other cutting dies. This helps enhance their "cute" look. One die in the set works with most of the sentiment stamps included in the set simply by changing their orientation. These dies are in VERY limited supply, so if you want them, you'd better order them asap!

Meet Batty Cat, who is part of Stampendous' cute new Batty Cat Rubber Stamp Set. When I saw him, I thought he'd be the perfect stamp to adorn a Halloween Treat Box!
