Want to doodle a PenPattern Snowman?

These PenPattern stamps for the holidays are a great way to sneak in some hand-eye coordination with your children over the holidays. The pattern is already started in the stamp image and the challenge is to repeat them in the rest of the snowman. The children aren’t the only ones that can have fun. Join in with them and doodle to de-stress!

You’ve seen our PenPattern Gift, PenPattern Moose and PenPattern Penguin this week and now it’s time for PenPattern Snowman.

Design team alumni, Krissy Fossmeyer, created this fun colored Snowman for a quick holiday card project a sparkly bed of snow at the foot of the snowman. See how she made it HERE.

PenPattern Penguin is back today on a card by Wendy Price with instructions right HERE. Look at how adorable this image is with just a little bit of color.

Tongue Twister Thursday

Here’s our tongue twister for the day, PenPattern Penguin. As fun as it is to say it, we think it’s even more fun to see! Yes, this PenPattern Penguin is adorable and just waiting for a doodle or a color.

This beautiful PenPattern Penguin card designed by Jennifer Dove with her trained coloring eye has brought this image to life. She’s provided simple instructions HERE to complete one of your own cards.

These PenPattern images are a fun way to create a quick project sized just right for a card. We love the projects that what our design team has created and we know you will, too.

Doodling Your Holiday Styles

This season is a gift-giving extravaganza and the PenPattern Gift stamp is great to use as a gift tag, on a card or how about those scrapbook pages where children are opening up their gifts. It’s a versatile design and can be used for gift-giving year around!

 

Just look at this festively colored gift on a card by DT alumni Tobi Crawford with instructions (and pen colors) available HERE. You can also see this card on her blog with some of our other Christmas imagse. The link is provided below.

Today’s group of designer posts will have you itching for some PenPattern of your own.

Doodle of a Holiday!

Welcome to another full week of fun PenPattern designs with the holidays in mind!

Our PenPattern collection has enough doodles designed into them to color and go, and they also have clear spaces to create your own doodling. If you want to add doodles but find it difficult, stamp using one of our complementing PenPattern Background style stamps. Today our focus is on this adorable PenPattern Moose in the act of balancing his gift-giving load.

Krissy Fossmeyer has a great holiday coloring of PenPattern Moose and she has instructions on how she made it here.

If you’d like to see how these PenPattern designs work here’s a short video.

We have a couple of designers who want to share their moose projects with you today!
