It’s a great day in the snow with our furry friends and it is even better for us because we stay dry and warm inside! This fun sledding card does well as a sweet encouragement card for family or friend just like this card by Janelle Stollfus.

All About the Dead

This week while we are collaborating with Glue Dots we also have a little theme running along side and it’s all about our bone chattering images for Halloween. You’ll see more from our team this week, but here’s a round up of our newest skeleton imagery.

An elegantly clad skeleton lady strolls among the tombstones with Halloween flair. So many ways this could be spooky, check out a few projects from our design team on this one!

A hunting owl swoops down on a fleet of fleeing rats in this haunted graveyard stamp scene and we have a few designer samples to show its spooky side in full color.

Only A Skull Ghoul Can Eek A Boo

It’s a great day for some boo-tiful Halloween images as we continue our week of All in Ones. Fran designed these stamps for easy one-stamping projects to help get through the long mailing lists, but you can also use your creativity and do more. We have samples today that show you how two designers stepped up the creativity with the Halloween themed All in Ones.

W154 Eek A Boo Rubber Stamp

Eek A Boo stamp is a sweet pumpkin with a squeaky little friend that works great for mailing list cards, invitations and treat toppers, because it’s a one stamping image. If you want to add a little more creativity you can trim around the edges for a different look.  Jennie Lin Black made up this wonderfully spooky card with a trimmed edge, pairing Eek A Boo with a from Halloween Wish. What a fabulous idea card!

Our next All in One, Skull Ghoul, is ready with pretty posies in her skull-do for a sweet Halloween project made in a snap. To take it up a notch the elements can be hand trimmed for a extra special project.

Let’s take a look at what Wendy Price did when her creativity went straight to decor.

Now isn’t that splendidly skullrific! The solid lines of Skull Ghoul makes it easy to hand trim the image elements for Wendy’s wreath. Now that’s using her noggin!

There is more to see today from these designers blogs —
