Magnolias For Friends

W149 Magnolia Rose Rubber Stamp

It’s a busy day of shopping and deal hunting so before you head out the door to your local craft and scrapbooking stores let’s look at stamping inspiration for our friends and family.

Our Magnolia Rose stamp is a pretty flower image that could easily be colored as a rose with surrounding holiday theme foliage to go along with your holiday greetings. Here it’s colored so beautifully by Jennie Lin Black with our Retro Script Christmas stamp.

Louise Healy created this magnolia with beautiful soft pink hues for a wonderful modern holiday card.

Going vintage is easy with Magnolia Rose as Asia King created them in beautiful yellow flowers for her Christmas. She added the Christmas Love sentiment surrounded in bling and ribbons for a totally aged look.

Here is just one beautiful example, in warm fall colors, with a sentiment that sums it up perfectly…”YOU ARE MY HAPPY!”

A Wiggling Santa Week

1-11162015 Action Wobbles PLUS Santa Week2

It’s been a whole week of double the creativity from our design team using our stamps of the man in red and adding a wiggling element onto their projects with an Action Wobble spring. Boy have they made some fun projects!


More of our new Santa stamps from the July 2015 catalog put Santa on the move. He’s making his worldwide trip delivering presents in our Santa Flight stamp that will help you create a whole card in one stamping!

R235 Santa Flight Rubber Stamp

You can see just how easy a card can be made from these two cards by our design team. Each caption under the designer’s Santa Flight project will take you to complete project supplies and instructions so you can make one of your very own.

Next week we are spending time with family and friends for our theme, and its right in time with the Thanksgiving holiday. Join us for more holiday and Christmas products from our July 2015 catalog.

Wobbling and ‘Weaving and Ho Ho Ho-ing?

Once again we have a busy week, with a fun mix from our team. Yes, it’s Dreamweaver Thursday. Yes, our challenge this week is to get on Santa’s good side. And, yes, we are playing with Action Wobbles, too. So…many of us are “Dreaming” of a “Wobbly” “Santa”…which sounds like he may have had too much Christmas cheer mixed into his milk and cookies. Good thing that Rudolph is doing the driving! You’ll see a bit of each, and on some, a bit of all…

For the “wobblers”, we have these fun spring-like gadgets called Action Wobbles. They’re kind of boring to look at, but once attached, they make any project an interactive toy! If you’ve missed our previous posts regarding these this week, spring back to Monday and Wednesday, and hop the lists for more fun ideas.



For the “Dreamers”, we have an amazing variety of stencils to mix with either/both…like these…

Dreamweaver Nested Ornaments Dies
Dreamweaver Nested Stockings Dies
Dreamweaver Snowman

Wouldn’t it be cute to have either the die cut ornaments or the stockings attached to a card or gift tag with an Action Wobble? Stamp or stencil a fun pattern or image on them, and they come alive! What about the snowman? Just ink or paste a second head to adhere over top with the Action Wobble in between, and he’s suddenly bobbing to music on a blustery day!

Finally, we have our Santa enthusiasts, who’d love mixing these cuties in…

Jolly Santa
Santa Dog
Sledding Santa


Now, let’s see how everyone plays with these challenges…

A TOTES-Creative Dreamweaver Thursday with Canvas Corp

If you’ve been following us this week (and you SHOULD be!), then you know that we’ve been providing oodles of ideas for decorating Canvas Corp® canvas products…specifically these cute little totes…

Yes, these are perfect for stamping on with all of the great Stampendous images, for any occasion, and easy to accessorize with our Essentials like glitter and Color Fragments, etc….but…these are AWESOME for use with our Dreamweaver Stencils! They are flat, the perfect size for even our large background designs, and the canvas takes paints, dyes, inks, and PASTES wonderfully. Yes, I did say pastes. The canvas provides perfect “tooth” for our Dreamweaver embossing paste to grab on to as another great way to add texture and dimension to your projects. What can you use them for? How about for phones; a quick grab with money, keys, etc. for errands; gift and treat bags; decór; favors at a wedding; little gifts for hostesses and/or guests during the holidays? We’d love to hear what YOU would use them for!
