The added sentiment from the new SSC1231 Holiday Expressions Perfectly Clear Stamp Set pulls it all together.

Create A Poinsettia

Welcome back to another day of pretty poinsettias! We had a chance to see in video we posted yesterday all the possibilities using Create A Poinsettia Cling Stamp and Die Cut Set, but did you spot Fran’s great idea for keeping track of the parts of the free template included in the stamp package? How about her tip for lining up the dies onto the image for cutting quickly and efficiently every time? If not, stop by Monday’s blog post and see the video.

Today is a sneak peek at the products themselves before a little project treat or two as well. This gorgeous poinsettia flower arrangement is accompanied by a vintage style greeting for a great card or scrapbook page and yes holiday ornaments, too!

The coordinating die cut set will help layer the poinsettia flower into four sections, but really you can stamp and layer until it looks just they way you want. Just stamp out a few extra flowers from to create a beautiful three-dimensional effect with it.

One of the possibilities Fran shared in the video is to use thin chipboard cut with the dies to add stability to each flower layer and  then add a jump rings to attach beads and a hook or loop for a pretty ornament. Here’s her finished sample she started in the video and it turned out beautiful!

Christmas Coloring Fun

Our week is rolling by just as quickly as the seasons seem to pass by, so we can never be too early getting started on those Christmas cards. Our designers are staying ahead with the projects they finished for our July catalog release and this week they are sharing the inspiration with all of us.

Speaking of a new release, did you see our What’s New section of the website? It has all of our fabulous holiday stamps we’ve been talking about, ready to drop in a shopping cart or add to your wish list! We are so excited to share all these images with you here, but maybe just one stamp from our website for now will do because there are plans for more weeks of Christmas and holiday themes in the weeks ahead.

These Candy Canes framed with holiday pine and ornaments make a perfect image for greeting cards, tags and more!
