Decking the Tree with Dreamweaver

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:

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.

Coasting By With Memories

We are enjoying the last days of summer this week with our mischievous mice theme. During this time of year there are vacations and celebrations that any of the House-Mouse stamps would help set the stage for your handmade card and scrapbook projects.

We can imagine this Teacup Sailing stamp would be great used on so many different water themed scrapbook pages.  Amanda, Muzzy and Mudpie have expertly set sail for any kind of trip even if it’s only in the kitchen sink!

HMR30 Teacup Sailing Rubber Stamp

Here is a sweet sailing birthday card for those seafaring folks in your life. Jennie Lin Black created a beautiful floral color theme and, wow, we love the teacup reflections, too!  More details about this card can be found on our website by clicking on the image or caption below it. By the way of sailing vessels, that the sentiment on Jennie’s card is from the Mice Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamps Set that happens to have another cute mousey sailor with snug hull boat.

Mousey Adventures

Welcome back to our week of mousey mischief and the crew of House-Mouse characters. Amanda, Maxwell, Mudpie and Monica are hanging around together for some adventures in crafts and leisure that are sure to be fun.

This foursome spotted bright colored beads and decided to take up the art of jewelry design.

HMR29 Jewelry Making Rubber Stamp
Just look at the colorful choices of jewelry in this card by Kristine Reynolds. The beautiful bead-like pattern paper on her card was done with a Dreamweaver stencil embossed then distressed on coordinating paper. Find out more about the supplies and instructions for Kristine’s card project on our website.

All four mice find warmth in the pockets of hanging jeans on the clothesline after an acrobatic effort to get to them. I’m guessing it’s a great spot to rest with a bird’s eye view to their next adventure.

HMR34 Hanging Jeans Rubber Stamp
Here’s a great card for a friend by Amy Hurley-Purdie with amazing realistic coloring on the jeans and she added an encouraging sentiment from the Forest Sayings Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.
