Cheers to a Happy New Year in 2016 and many wishes for a great year of stamping and stenciling!
We wrapped up a wonderful year with oodles of great new products and the addition of Dreamweaver Stencils to the family it just couldn’t get any better, and yet we have more exciting and innovative products coming out in 2016! CHA is just around the corner so stay connected with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and right here on our blog!
Oh do we have a great wrap up of our theme week today, Baby – It’s Cold Outside! It’s time to sit back and enjoy the warmth of friendship and just like Mudpie, enjoy a warm cup after all the fun we’ve had outside!
Here Muzzy, Amanda and Mudpie who are finding their warmth by the candle light of a lantern.
There is more over on these designers blogs today with a warm welcome to one of our alumni design team members visiting today!
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.
Two more friends sledding with a few tweet friends near by. It couldn’t be a more enjoyable outing unless of course that candy cane is a real treat!
Louise Healy has them all warmed up in their brown fur coats going down a sparkling snow path.
The most adventurous Amanda is a downhill dynamo completely enjoying the colder temperatures and white powdery snow!
Here’s to red scarves and glistening snow mounds, just a darling Ski Run image colored by Rhea Weigand.
Thank you for stopping in for a little bit of snow fun! Let’s go see what today’s designers made to enjoy the cold outside!
It is getting colder outside for most of us in the northern hemisphere, but that won’t stop us from having some fun! This week we have a flurry of great inspiration for fun in the snow and maybe afterwards warming up inside with hot beverages.
Forget the hustle and bustle and simply make time to enjoy friends, family and places around us. At least that is how it looks for our focus on House-Mouse stamps today. Amanda has her bugle at tempo with a friend who’s all in for the holiday season. See them in wonderful color on this card by Laura Drahozal.
It is a great friend who gives their best gift… themselves. A gorgeous Christmas theme card by Kristine Reynolds shows off these friends and they would work well for any gift giving occasion or birthday scrapbook layout.
It’s time for our designers to hand out inspiration over on their blogs, let’s see what they designed for our Celebrate the Season theme!
Crank up your holiday music! It’s time for a celebration, and Stampendous and Dreamweaver have everything you need to wow your family, friends, and co-workers. For example, how about this beautiful card created by Lyn Bernatovich, featuring the Dreamweaver “Musical Christmas” stencil, pasted in gold on gold paper, and mounted on machine-embossed wine-colored cardstock?
And take a look at this creation by Louise Healy, using the same design, but totally different look? Definitely something to sing about!
Oh, yes. The perfect accompaniment by Laura Drahozal once again!
We would love for you to toot your own horn! Share your musical Stampendous and Dreamweaver inspirations on their respective Facebook pages.

Meanwhile, our wonderful team has some more creations to share in celebration of this “Most Wonderful Time of the Year”!
It’s time for more of our theme, Celebrate the Season, with these adorable House-Mouse Designs®. We have some pretty awesome samples here on our blog, but you will also find them in our projects section too!
Our first stamp are those lovely hoppers having a sweet mistletoe moment and Jennie Lin Black’s card is so striking with colorful contrasts and our Retro Christmas stamp.
Can you believe these characters? Acting up at Christmas time. Well Muzzy is as angelic as always and in this card design by Pam Hornschu she really has herself looking drained from all the shenanigans.
If you love the songs at Christmas time and want to share an image of singing carols by candle light, then this House-Mouse stamp is for you! Kristine Reynolds created such a sweet scene that is so “berry” festive!
Ready for some more fantastic inspiration to celebrate the season right with House-Mouse Designs? Let’s get started with these designers blog posts.
Our mice are stirring around the blog this week, preparing for the approaching holidays. Let’s check in on Monica, Muzzy, Amanda, Maxwell and Mudpie to see how they celebrate the season. Amanda and Monica are master tree decorators feeling at ease to juggle as they add them to the tree.
Once the ornaments are hung, it’s time to enjoy them! Monica is having fun on a carousel ride to celebrate.
A beautiful card by Jennie Lin Black shows just how pleased Monica is at getting a leisure ride in the tree.
Better not forget the mistletoe! Monica, Muzzy and Amanda are trying out the mistletoe to see if it really does work!
And Pam Hornschu has that magical touch with the Mistletoe Mice stamp and a beautiful card to show for it.
Let’s see who else is preparing for the holidays on today designers blog posts.

You’ve probably seen this fascinating video from Andy Skinner for Stampendous at least a couple of times this week, but just in case you missed it, we’re featuring it once again! Since this is our Dreamweaver Thursday post, we have a warm, yet frosty, project created by team member, Pam Hornschu, that uses parts of Andy Skinner’s faux rust technique, some great products from our craft partners, and the perfect Dreamweaver Stencil to highlight this rusty and rustic design. We even have step-outs so that you can follow along…
