Truck Tidings Trees by Fran Seiford

We hope the wheels are rolling on the road to holiday paper crafting after this week with Truck Tidings! This set is a great combo of cling rubber stamps and dies that will enthuse the truck fans in your holiday circle, but it has so many more possibilities when you think outside of the holiday season and you will get to see some great ideas today from our designer’s projects today.

Truck Tidings Cling Stamps And Die Set

Before we take off for the weekend we’d like to share some of our other motored images also from our July 2016 catalog and a very popular truck and gifts image from an older release.

Let’s get the motor running and head on into the holidays with loads of fun and fresh ideas from projects by our design team!

Loads of Tidings For Christmas

Truck Tidings by Debi Hammons

It’s a Christmas tradition to have a fresh tree to decorate but what could be easier than loading it in the back of a truck? Maybe stamping it in the back of our Truck Tidings Cling Stamps and Die Set!

Debi Hammons created this tradition, shown above, by masking off the decorations making it look like a great, and easy, way to carry on the tradition through Christmas cards and scrapbook pages.

We have a full line-up of themes that will take us right up until New Year’s to share and it’s time to get trucking through the holidays!

Shabby Chic Box by Andy Skinner

It’s Friday and our relaxed week of mixed media is almost over, but we have one more bit of goodies to share. The terrific mixed media artist and designer, Andy Skinner, is the spotlight of our post today and there is a chance to see him create with his trademark techniques using his line of stamps and stencils with DecoArt Media products. It’s amazing what you can do with this product combination when you have a few techniques up your sleeve.

His style is a solid industrial style with even shabby chic mixed in on a few projects. No matter the style it’s in the techniques you use with your supplies and we have a way for you to see Andy in demo them in action, but only for a short time.

Say Yes To New Adventures!

It’s the end of the month and a great time to revisit the Creative Squad projects Nathalie’s Studio Blog.  This group of talented designers created fun art journaling pages using Nathalie’s stamps and stencil designs. For convenience, we’ve listed Nathalie’s Stampendous products here but you can also stop by Nathalie’s store for her products, too.

The Creative Squad was given the challenge to create something that celebrates the spirit of adventure and it was fun to see where their creative spirit took them for each project. We’ve grabbed the links to all of the “Say Yes! to New Adventures” posts so you can browse with ease. Enjoy and be inspired!
