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.
It’s a beautiful day when there are roses in it and more Time with Family and Friends inspiration week.
It is Thanksgiving Day for us in the United States, and as such, we’d like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! This is a perfect time to reflect on those we love…family, friends, and all that we love in life. Here is just one beautiful example, in warm fall colors, with a sentiment that sums it up perfectly…”YOU ARE MY HAPPY!”
Looking for the perfect sentiment that sums up your family and friends week? How about this one…
And now, for your viewing pleasure…our team players for today, including a mix of Dreamweaver and Stampendous celebrating family and friends…
It’s time for more inspiration today with our family and friends theme! Friends are the best gift and these three furry friends together on one stamp will make the sweetest gesture of friendship for your holiday projects.
Gorgeously colored on a card by Jennie Lin Black, Furry Friends are hoping Santa will hurry on his way.
This week we are taking the time to be with family and friends, those important folks in our lives, for the Thanksgiving holiday and sure enough it’s a natural focus for card making and scrapbooking so of course, you know we have stamps to go with them!
Our fantastic little bear is taking his friends on a sled ride through the countryside for a fine afternoon outing. Look how sweet it looks as a card by Lea Fritts.
Here are today’s designers sharing their family and friends theme projects –
Come back later this week for more sweet stamps to celebrate family and friends for the holidays, THEN next week we have a great little product that might leave you puzzled on what you might do with it! Thanks for stopping by today!
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!
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.
Our leisure Santa is enjoy a skate around the North Pole rink in Holiday Skate Perfectly Clear Stamps Set. He’s joined by a few cute friends to make any project into a skate party.
Two wonderful projects to see by Terry Braddock and Kristine Reynolds that make you want to glide into the holiday spirit.
Will it be wobbles or Santa? Or BOTH? It’s a surprise waiting to be seen at these designers’ blogs today. Let’s go see what they made!
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…
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…
Now, let’s see how everyone plays with these challenges…
Get a look at that fabulous gallery of tote-ally fun projects! Our designers really took the bag by it’s strap and created fun and creative stamped and stenciled bags. Thank you to our friends at Canvas Corp for providing these our team with these great canvas products and playing along on their blog.
Here’s a peek for you and if you missed their project please do visit their blog post for our hop to see some pretty cool techniques to use on paper and canvas with our Dreamweaver Stencils!
Yes, we have action projects this week. Just you wait and see the fun our design team is having with these cool little springs.
You might see another theme popping up this week on our designers post that they may be using our favorite stamps and stencils about a lovable jolly man with the long white beard. There might even be projects with both!
Here are a few of our theme stamps in our House-Mouse Designs® collection. Little Booda is having a great ride in the snow!
These little mice have sugar plums dancing in their heads and hopefully full stockings overhead by morning!
Here are the designers hopping with wobbling projects with peeks at our Santa theme stamps and stencils.
Our design team took the blank canvas challenge this week and created these fantastic projects with their Canvas Corp’s shoulder bag, and there are more to see today!
We hope you’ve filled your inspiration bag with ideas and ready to dive in on designing a canvas bag, too. Just think of all the possibilities using our Stamps, Essentials and Dreamweaver Stencils. We can’t wait to see what the winners of our prize packages do with them!
Commenters have the chance to win a bag of their own PLUS stamps and dies and more Canvas Corp goodies. Just stop by our Monday post for details and deadlines as well as our official contest rules. There is a prize for one of our AUSSIE fans, just let us know where you live when you comment.
Let’s jump on over to see what these designers did with their canvas shoulder bags and then check out all the fun products you can alter on the Canvas Corp website.
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!
Here are links for today’s players…and a few sneak peeks…
