Inspiring Angels Friday

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.

This House-Mouse Designs stamp, Angel Mice, is a cute reminder of the visiting angels in the fields. Kristine Reynolds created a card using this stamp that is so sweet with perfectly matched holly paper. Click the card image to take you instructions on how to create one of your own cards with this Angel Mice stamp.

A classic Christmas Carol this stamp by the same name is the essence of the quiet night the angels came.  Debi Hammons created the majestic quiet moment in her metallic and embossed card. There are easy instructions for this beautiful card on our website here.

Another classic carol enveloped in a stylish Dove symbol, this image shares the message of the birth of Jesus.  Our beautiful sample is made by Jamie Martin who used a simple technique for decorating the card base. Check out the instructions on our website to find out how she made it.

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.

This first beautiful card of the Holy Family is by Jennifer Dove who colored this Manger Family with a spotlight on the Holy Child.

A gorgeously colored card by Asia King frames the Manger Family stamp so beautifully it must be a decoration on someone’s mantle. It’s just beautiful!

Here is a beautiful silhouette stamp perfect for any holiday project with the solid image that is great partnered with our Embossing Enamels.

A stunning CAS card by Lynn Mercurio with a shadow box style vignette on the Holy Family scene keeps the focus on this precious stamp.

We also have a perfect stamp for sharing the Nativity with children and young teens.

A cute image delightfully colored by Kristine Reynolds on her card. This project with instructions can be seen on our website here. It’s a beautiful card!

These are a few of the wonderful stamps for celebrating Christmas and the reason for the season. We hope you’ve enjoyed the focus as well as going to our designers who are sharing  some of their inspirational projects. Enjoy!

Inspirational Words

Our Christmas sentiments can be the inspiration for creating some treasured projects and cards. It’s easy to create by pairing them with one of our Christmas image stamps to complete your design. Here are a few ways our designs work together for a great finished card design.

The Unto Us verse with a drop letter can hold it’s own attention and still complements our Christmas images well.

Tis the Season has so many wonderful sayings for Christmas that can be used on the outside and inside of the card.

Here’s a solid designed card with Jesus Season and Manger Scene stamps using embossing powders to create some shimmer.

This sentiment only card coupled with a filigree of rhinestones and a few textural touches make a striking Christmas card.

The Believe Christmas sentiment shines alongside stamped snowflakes with a sponged background.

Here are more inspirational projects to enjoy from some of our designers posting on their blogs.

Want to doodle a PenPattern Snowman?

These PenPattern stamps for the holidays are a great way to sneak in some hand-eye coordination with your children over the holidays. The pattern is already started in the stamp image and the challenge is to repeat them in the rest of the snowman. The children aren’t the only ones that can have fun. Join in with them and doodle to de-stress!

You’ve seen our PenPattern Gift, PenPattern Moose and PenPattern Penguin this week and now it’s time for PenPattern Snowman.

Design team alumni, Krissy Fossmeyer, created this fun colored Snowman for a quick holiday card project a sparkly bed of snow at the foot of the snowman. See how she made it HERE.

PenPattern Penguin is back today on a card by Wendy Price with instructions right HERE. Look at how adorable this image is with just a little bit of color.
