A Charming Cherub Christmas

Cherub Christmas

 

Super sweet cherubs are perfect for Christmas greetings to convey the wonder of the Holiday season. These adorable angels are Fran’s favorite this year as they interact with sweet animals for the season. Combine one or more on a holiday card, or you could even use them for sympathy cards, or just daily encouragement. There are so many ways to color them to feature year ’round charm.

Fran made a quick video with some coloring tips, and it features some wonderful samples from our Design Team and Fran herself for using these great stamps. Check it out.

Our design team is also sharing their samples on their blogs this week along with other designs that would make delightful cards for kids or from kids. Check them out here –

Our whimsical, new Qsets are celebrating the birth of Christ with a bit of humor! Remember that the dies for cutting out these images are very, very limited. So, if you’re like we are, and you want a die for every stamp, you’ll love these sets, but grab them fast!

The Christmas Heart stamp is great for sending an ornament to a friend over the miles or create a scrapbook page for your family tree decorated! Designer Janelle used watercolor for an old fashioned effect.
