Deck the Halls!

Getting Ready for Christmas

This week we’re getting ready for Christmas! Actually here at Stampendous my office is already decorated for Christmas since it segues directly from Halloween. Are you getting ready to get out the holly? The friends from House-Mouse Designs® decorate early, too. They know Santa is watching, and this year they’re hoping for cheese! (maybe a nice Porter Cahill…or some Camembert…mmm)

Our team is busy with our Blog Hops, but we’ve been ready for Christmas since the July Catalog. That’s the nature of the crafts industry! So we’re sharing in the afternoons some projects they made for our catalog. If you click on the photo it will take you to the Project section of our website where you can find the supplies and instructions for each project.

A gingerbread house is such a traditional Christmas activity. Do you make one? There are so many easy kits available. Amanda and Mudpie love making these fun creations. Notice that Amanda is standing firmly atop her brother…probably to keep him from eating the decorations! (notice the differences in how these images are colored, the two MASTERS of coloring with Copic markers are showing their stuff here!)

Christmas Preparations!

Getting Ready for Christmas

Like it or not, the holidays are fast approaching! When do you decorate for Christmas? (or whatever holiday you celebrate)  Do you like to have all your decorations up when the family comes for Thanksgiving? Do you avoid the Black Friday crowds and stay home to deck the halls? Are you content with a wreath on the door and a Merry Christmas on your lips? Or do you make every room in your house a dazzling showplace to Christmas?

Our friends at House-Mouse Designs® go all out! They want to impress Santa so that he’ll leave them goodies galore!  Our design team is swamped this week with the Tue-Wed-Thu blog hop with Spellbinders and the Fri-Sat-Sun blog hop with Tombow! (sooo much goodness for one week) We’re going to help them out in the afternoons by sharing some of the “holiday preparations” cards and projects they made for our catalog. If you click on the picture it will take you to the Supplies and Instructions on our website. We hope you find some inspiration for your own holiday cards (or decorations!) this year.

Stringing cranberries is a fun activity to do with kids. We always added popcorn, but I imagine that Muzzy ate all the popcorn (like we used to) before she got this far!

What is Your Quick Card Style?

This week we’ve been sharing quick holiday cards and there are so many great samples to cover that we hope you’ll take a look in the projects section of our website. Each project has supply lists and instructions and we’ll send you in that direction today with our quick card samples of the day.

Snowflake Tree Card by Tenia Nelson

Tenia used only one color with her cardstock and some embossing powder for some bling to make this card quick with a whole lot of wow! Check out the instructions for this one here.

If you are short on time to color an image, you can always use color cardstock to bring some life into the image. Look at these cute Christmas Hedgehogs on a card by Wendy Price. Supplies and instructions are available for Wendy’s card here.

If you are in the mood for some coloring then pair it with texture for a finished look to your card. Monika Thomas has Christmas Owl colored so nicely on her card and added some great texture with fabric and ribbon. Doesn’t it look great!

Quick Cards with Iconic Stampendous Stamps

Spending too much time stamping your quick cards and not enough time finishing them? Save a few extra minutes by using our Cling Jumbo Stamps. Here are two sets with sample ideas to get your cardmaking mojo on the move.

Cling Delicate Snow – CRS5069

Cling Delicate Snow – CRS5069

Here’s what you could expect from our Delicate Snow set. Embossing these snowflakes really adds to the delicate detail to create a gorgeous card with WOW! Krissy Fossmeyer has that WOW factor for her Delicate Snowflake Card. The adhesive pearls add just the right touch quickly and easily.

There are some fun stamps in our Top Hat Snowman that span the  width of a tall card. You can see this set in action on Debi Hammons’ card.

A darling little snowman with his nested friend can be done again! There are instructions available on our website here. And to wrap up our quick card ideas here’s what our designer of the day is sharing.
