Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Wednesday.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

This week we’re celebrating Santa and all the fun he brings at Christmastime. We’re giving away one of our Santa On His Way stamps to one lucky commenter on our blog or one of our Design Team blog posts this week! In case you missed Monday’s inspiration or the chance to comment, you can find it here. And, of course, the official rules are always HERE.

Today Santa is flying overhead past a wonderful, coastal lighthouse. His reindeer can use the lovely beams of light to help guide their way. This is another great stamp that just needs a bit of spot color to really fill up a card layer and provide you with a “one and done” holiday greeting. It’s available in both wood mounted and cling rubber and it’s called Lighthouse Christmas.

You can click on the picture to be taken to the product on our website.

The girl and boy pirates are available in Cling Rubber or Wood Mounted while the pirate set is a set of Perfectly Clear Stamps. Here are the stamps and some summer cards we made featuring them:

 

But Halloween approaches and many a young one wants to be a buccaneer and pretend to sail the seven seas, so the Pink Your Life design team had some fun with these images. Take a look at this cute Halloween Step Card by Sandra Ghidara:

And this adorable spinner card where your pirates are afloat on the deep blue:

Sneak a Peek at Spring!

Now that the chill is hitting the air, and thoughts lovingly turn to Pumpkin Spiced everything, we’re here to give you a sneak peek forward to Spring. Your local stores are stocking their shelves with our new Spring merchandise, and the Stampendous October 2017 Catalog goes live on our website on Friday for all retail customers.

Next week we’ll start our 31 Days of Halloween posts and continue with our Fall, Christmas, and Winter projects and inspiration, but for those of you who plan and craft ahead… Spring has Sprung!

We have lots of favorite products in this new catalog, but our favorite of all is our new Spring Borders Cutting Dies. Our Design Team loved them so much, you’ll see them on almost every inspiring project.  (remember, the links won’t work until after Friday!)

DCP1009 Spring Borders Die SetThese six border dies have you covered for Valentine’s Day, Spring, Mother’s Day, Weddings, Baby Cards, and more! The flower border on the yellow background is perfect for threading a ribbon through, or a strip of patterned paper! The edger on the right with the pink background lines up perfectly with the fancy purple edger to let you make a double edge!

Here are some fun sample borders we cooked up when we were trying them. You can certainly see how fun they’re going to be!

Border Die Samples

Here are just a few of the great samples our team made with them! You’ll see these again later, plus they’re all being loaded to our website with full supply lists and instructions! We bet you can see how “must-have” these border dies are will be! You might want to call your local store now and tell them you’ll need these.

Some of the Design Team are sharing their favorite Sneak Peeks this week, too! We can’t wait for you see all our new Spring Goodness!
