Hello and welcome to another day of our mashup with Santa and wobbly action projects. Our team is having way too much fun making a wide range of wobbly cards AND there are a few video clips to see just how they wobble. Catch up on them from Monday if you haven’t already and check out today’s list of designers who are ready to dazzle you with Santa’s, wobbly cards or both!
Since it IS about Santa this week too, we have some projects from our catalog with a few bag issues! They are brimming full of presents that are just begging to be seen. First up is this amazing book box by Debbie Cole who captures the vintage and country vibe of our Quilted Santa stamp. Isn’t this just amazing!
And then there is a classic version of Santa, as Classic Santa in wood or cling rubber mount.
Asia King created this gorgeous Classic Santa card and those young at heart believe the sentiment says is all. Get all the details on how Asia created this card over on our website HERE.
We can’t get enough of the big fat man with the long white beard around this time of year, so let’s hop on over to these designer’s projects and see if we can find him!
The month of October has been a celebration of all things Halloween, but did you know that it has also been Decorative Painters’ Month?

Here’s a pretty fabulous list of projects to hop on over and see.
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:
And add some of this…
A healthy sprinkling of this…
And you could have something like this fun card by Pam Hornschu…
Several of our team members have some more Christmas creations to share with you today:
We are here today with more Christmas trees from the design team linked up towards the end of our post, but before we hop on over to see them we have a great video with Fran Seiford using Create Christmas.
You’ll see plenty of ideas for tree styles and colors plus somewhere in the video Fran gives a tip on making different styles of glistening snow and vintage decorations.
Let’s hop on over to these designer projects for more inspiration!
Are you ready to create a little Christmas this week? We are!
One of the loved traditions of Christmas season is finding the perfect evergreen tree and decorate it with treasured ornaments and accessories. Now we can create a grove of fun Christmas trees in assorted styles and decorations with two new products from our July 2015 catalog.
Cling Create Christmas Stamp Set includes a shapely tree and adornment stamps to make a jolly holiday tree project of your very own. This set also includes a free stencil for easy coloring and masking on your projects and we’ll show you how to use it all this week.
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.
With so many ways to trim a tree with this stamp and die combination our design team have some great Christmas projects to share! Let’s see what they have today!
Today is Winter and Christmas card making day here on our blog with six All in One stamps to see! Christmas is the biggest season for card giving and if you have made your cards before you know that it can be a time consuming task.
Our All in Ones are here to help to create oodles of quick cards that are cheerful and darling surely to put smiles on friends and families faces. Each stamp has a focal image, a phrase, a background and a frame so finishing up your holiday cards will be a breeze.
Here are stacks of each stamp design on a colorful monoprint paper made with the Creative Palette Monoprinting Plate, DecoArt paint and a couple NK Studio Stamps Sets for texture, then they were glued onto a neutral card base for quick work of your mailing list. Now isn’t that a vision of fun!
From the simple one-stamping technique like Janelle created with her set of cards to wherever your creativity leads you, the All in Ones work great in any design.
Jennie Lin Black created a set of cards with a few adorable embellishments for a special touch. These are all so sweet!
Now let’s see what design direction our team went on their All in One cards. Enjoy, leave some comment love and we’ll see you back here next week when we’ll be creating more for Christmas.
You’ve seen several of the newly released “All in One” images from Stampendous, and all the creative ways to use them. For Dreamweaver Thursday, you’ll see ways to use them along with Dreamweaver by Stampendous stencils, as well as a reminder of the many “All in One” stencil designs that Dreamweaver is famous for. A few even have matching embossing folders, to use with the stencils, and both can be used alone, like the ones shown below.
How about a couple of samples?

It’s a great day for some boo-tiful Halloween images as we continue our week of All in Ones. Fran designed these stamps for easy one-stamping projects to help get through the long mailing lists, but you can also use your creativity and do more. We have samples today that show you how two designers stepped up the creativity with the Halloween themed All in Ones.
Eek A Boo stamp is a sweet pumpkin with a squeaky little friend that works great for mailing list cards, invitations and treat toppers, because it’s a one stamping image. If you want to add a little more creativity you can trim around the edges for a different look. Jennie Lin Black made up this wonderfully spooky card with a trimmed edge, pairing Eek A Boo with a from Halloween Wish. What a fabulous idea card!
Our next All in One, Skull Ghoul, is ready with pretty posies in her skull-do for a sweet Halloween project made in a snap. To take it up a notch the elements can be hand trimmed for a extra special project.
Let’s take a look at what Wendy Price did when her creativity went straight to decor.
Now isn’t that splendidly skullrific! The solid lines of Skull Ghoul makes it easy to hand trim the image elements for Wendy’s wreath. Now that’s using her noggin!
