House-Mouse Holiday Season

Our sweet friends from House-Mouse Designs have lots of mischief to get you excited about this holiday season! We know you’ll find something fun and festive when you take a look at the entire collection, you can do that by clicking on the picture above.

When you stamp your House-Mouse friends, you’ll want to color them ever so sweetly. We offer you so many ways to do just that. Our House-Mouse Coloring Guide lets you choose the ink and coloring media that you love best, and gives you the color numbers you need to create something very special.

Our Design Team have been sharing this week with our newest House-Mouse designs and are hoping this really puts you in a holiday frame of mind. Check out their projects and leave them some nice comments.

Decking the Tree with Dreamweaver

By now I’m guessing that this set of Cling Stamps and their matching Cutting Dies are reeeeaaaally familiar to you. There’s a very good reason why the “Create Christmas” sets have been featured all of this week…they are amazingly versatile! Mix them up with Dreamweaver designs by Stampendous, and the possibilities are endless.

You’ve learned how to color these images. You’ve learned how to paper piece them with designer papers. You’ve learned to simply stamp and emboss the images. Now, how about ink-stenciling a background design over the  tree? How about pasting a design on the tree? How about adding a bit of Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to edges to create snow? For more dimension and the wow factor, how about running the tree through your embossing machine with the Dreamweaver stencil backgrounds or embossing folders? Now we’re talking! Here are just a few designs that would work well for these techniques, a few of which are considered “everyday” designs to be used year round for all of your Stampendous/Dreamweaver projects:

Stamp and decorate the tree in one layer or easily add dimension with the coordinating Create Christmas Die Set. The possibilities are endless with this set of 12 dies that cut all the stamp set images in Create Christmas even dies to cut the tree into layers for new heights.  Add oodles of gifts around your tree with the two rectangle and bow dies.

Decorate this tree quickly by stamping on pattern paper as shown in this festive card by Fran Seiford. Add a few wrapped presents in no time using only dies and more pattern paper, then all that is left is Christmas wish sentiment put together with the Holiday Words Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.

We have a few more inspirational stamps with a focus on heavenly attendants, though not traditional images of angels they remind us of the Christmas story.

Celebrating Christmas

The focus on our inspiration week directs us to the sacred Christmas stamps from our Inspiration collection. The beautiful nativity and manger scene stamps are great for creating ornaments, greeting cards and decor for the holidays. They are also perfect to add on Christmas Program scrapbook pages, too.
