We love to be ready with a gift and sometimes those last minute ones are hard to wrap, but we have a handy solution. Download and print our pillow box template HERE on cardstock, grab some stamps and coloring medium and create a festively wrapped gift in no time.
Add your own style to gift bags whether they are brand new of upcycled. It seems a bag is available that can get a little jolly update for gift giving.
Of course, we hope your last minute gift wrapping isn’t too overwhelming. House-Mouse Monica relates if it is stacking up to Gifts Galore.
Now let’s see more wrapped up inspiration from our designers today –
This is THE week, we are wrapping up our Christmas images from the July 2015 catalog and you’ll be seeing anything that has to do with gifts, ribbon, wrapping paper and more! Here are a few cards by Fran Seiford, owner and illustrator of Stampendous Impressions. Enjoy!
The tree is decorated and the gifts are wrapped, greeting cards are sent and we can relax. Right?
This week our design team is wrapping up with some of their favorite holiday projects from the catalog and you just might find the wrapping theme on their blogs. Let’s see what these designers have in store for us today!
We’ve journeyed through the Nativity story this week, but not as far as the magi traveling with precious gifts for the holy babe. This gorgeous new Christmas stamp is perfectly sized for a dramatic card like this one from our Australian Distributor, Julie Makela at The Stencil Specialist.
Julie’s gorgeous colored image needs no extra decoration to adorn the card; it looks fantastic in those soft color pencil hues.
A simple wreath stamp image with the magic of Christmas wrapped into one sentence for a card, tag or scrapbook page. Really the possibilities are endless, but here’s an example to inspire you done by designer Tenia Nelson with sweetly colored wreath, baubles and bow. It’s simply adorable!
We can’t wait for you to see the rest of our featured designer projects for this week’s theme! Go be inspired and have a fun weekend then meet us back here next week as we wrap up our Christmas inspiration from the July 2015 catalog.
If you are the person that believes that the “reason for the season” is not about fighting to buy that item that is sold out everywhere, that it’s not about piles of presents under the tree, and that it’s not about how many parties you get invited to, but rather about celebrating the birth of the son of God…than this has to be the best week on the Stampendous blog for you! You’ve noticed by now that the Dreamweaver stencils, as well as the Stampendous line of images, provides many inspirational designs to touch your heart and those of your loved ones. Here’s just a few from the Dreamweaver line…
Our wonderful team have more inspirational inspiration (and yes, that was deliberate!) for you on their blogs…
We have some great stamp images to share today as we move through the week of our Child Is Born theme. First up are these two sweet onlookers towards Bethlehem as the star shines brightly in the sky. What a sweet night scene that is colored so beautifully by Alison Heikkila.
Another city scape stamp for today is this beautiful silhouette of the city of Jesus’ birth. Easy to emboss or stamp and go for a quick make of greeting cards.
Laura Drahozal created this sweet card that was shared last week for our House-Mouse theme, but take a look at the great text background! Even as a backup to the Joyful Noise of mouse and bird, these sentiments shine on their own.
If you enjoyed our stamps today, you’ll be in for a treat with these designer projects –
It’s another great week of Christmas theme and we are taking a look at stamps and stencils about the holy nativity.
Our inspirational All in One reminds us of the reason for Christmas, the birth of our Savior. Amy Hurley-Purdie colored this stamp using the most perfect color next to scraps of wrinkled bedding to signify the child’s status.
A beautifully Framed Family for easy cutting and layering onto cards and scrapbooking layouts. This is a precious scene of the Holy Family.
How about we find more inspiration at these designers blogs today.
Forget the hustle and bustle and simply make time to enjoy friends, family and places around us. At least that is how it looks for our focus on House-Mouse stamps today. Amanda has her bugle at tempo with a friend who’s all in for the holiday season. See them in wonderful color on this card by Laura Drahozal.
It is a great friend who gives their best gift… themselves. A gorgeous Christmas theme card by Kristine Reynolds shows off these friends and they would work well for any gift giving occasion or birthday scrapbook layout.
It’s time for our designers to hand out inspiration over on their blogs, let’s see what they designed for our Celebrate the Season theme!
Crank up your holiday music! It’s time for a celebration, and Stampendous and Dreamweaver have everything you need to wow your family, friends, and co-workers. For example, how about this beautiful card created by Lyn Bernatovich, featuring the Dreamweaver “Musical Christmas” stencil, pasted in gold on gold paper, and mounted on machine-embossed wine-colored cardstock?
And take a look at this creation by Louise Healy, using the same design, but totally different look? Definitely something to sing about!
Oh, yes. The perfect accompaniment by Laura Drahozal once again!

It’s time for more of our theme, Celebrate the Season, with these adorable House-Mouse Designs®. We have some pretty awesome samples here on our blog, but you will also find them in our projects section too!
Our first stamp are those lovely hoppers having a sweet mistletoe moment and Jennie Lin Black’s card is so striking with colorful contrasts and our Retro Christmas stamp.
Can you believe these characters? Acting up at Christmas time. Well Muzzy is as angelic as always and in this card design by Pam Hornschu she really has herself looking drained from all the shenanigans.
If you love the songs at Christmas time and want to share an image of singing carols by candle light, then this House-Mouse stamp is for you! Kristine Reynolds created such a sweet scene that is so “berry” festive!
