By now I’m guessing that this set of Cling Stamps and their matching Cutting Dies are reeeeaaaally familiar to you. There’s a very good reason why the “Create Christmas” sets have been featured all of this week…they are amazingly versatile! Mix them up with Dreamweaver designs by Stampendous, and the possibilities are endless.
You’ve learned how to color these images. You’ve learned how to paper piece them with designer papers. You’ve learned to simply stamp and emboss the images. Now, how about ink-stenciling a background design over the tree? How about pasting a design on the tree? How about adding a bit of Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to edges to create snow? For more dimension and the wow factor, how about running the tree through your embossing machine with the Dreamweaver stencil backgrounds or embossing folders? Now we’re talking! Here are just a few designs that would work well for these techniques, a few of which are considered “everyday” designs to be used year round for all of your Stampendous/Dreamweaver projects:
And add some of this…
A healthy sprinkling of this…
And you could have something like this fun card by Pam Hornschu…
Several of our team members have some more Christmas creations to share with you today:
Are you ready to create a little Christmas this week? We are!
One of the loved traditions of Christmas season is finding the perfect evergreen tree and decorate it with treasured ornaments and accessories. Now we can create a grove of fun Christmas trees in assorted styles and decorations with two new products from our July 2015 catalog.
Cling Create Christmas Stamp Set includes a shapely tree and adornment stamps to make a jolly holiday tree project of your very own. This set also includes a free stencil for easy coloring and masking on your projects and we’ll show you how to use it all this week.
Stamp and decorate the tree in one layer or easily add dimension with the coordinating Create Christmas Die Set. The possibilities are endless with this set of 12 dies that cut all the stamp set images in Create Christmas even dies to cut the tree into layers for new heights. Add oodles of gifts around your tree with the two rectangle and bow dies.
Decorate this tree quickly by stamping on pattern paper as shown in this festive card by Fran Seiford. Add a few wrapped presents in no time using only dies and more pattern paper, then all that is left is Christmas wish sentiment put together with the Holiday Words Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.
With so many ways to trim a tree with this stamp and die combination our design team have some great Christmas projects to share! Let’s see what they have today!
Today is Winter and Christmas card making day here on our blog with six All in One stamps to see! Christmas is the biggest season for card giving and if you have made your cards before you know that it can be a time consuming task.
Our All in Ones are here to help to create oodles of quick cards that are cheerful and darling surely to put smiles on friends and families faces. Each stamp has a focal image, a phrase, a background and a frame so finishing up your holiday cards will be a breeze.
Here are stacks of each stamp design on a colorful monoprint paper made with the Creative Palette Monoprinting Plate, DecoArt paint and a couple NK Studio Stamps Sets for texture, then they were glued onto a neutral card base for quick work of your mailing list. Now isn’t that a vision of fun!
From the simple one-stamping technique like Janelle created with her set of cards to wherever your creativity leads you, the All in Ones work great in any design.
Jennie Lin Black created a set of cards with a few adorable embellishments for a special touch. These are all so sweet!
Now let’s see what design direction our team went on their All in One cards. Enjoy, leave some comment love and we’ll see you back here next week when we’ll be creating more for Christmas.
You’ve seen several of the newly released “All in One” images from Stampendous, and all the creative ways to use them. For Dreamweaver Thursday, you’ll see ways to use them along with Dreamweaver by Stampendous stencils, as well as a reminder of the many “All in One” stencil designs that Dreamweaver is famous for. A few even have matching embossing folders, to use with the stencils, and both can be used alone, like the ones shown below.
