WindowRama Photo Frame Card Kits

WindowRama Photo frame Card Kits

Our brand new WindowRama Photo Frame Card Kits are an easy and beautiful way to send a holiday or everyday greeting!

Simple to assemble, each package comes with enough pieces to make 8-3D diorama cards that stand for display and fold flat for mailing. Envelopes and a small stamp set of greetings are included. You can simply glue them together and add a photo or gift card in the pre-punched slots, or you can embellish them as much as your heart desires.

WindowRama Photo Frame Card Kits are available in Christmas, Winter, Wedding, and Baby themed sets. Baby and Wedding are ideal for Everyday occasions as well. You’ll find them in your local stamping and scrapbooking store or on our website (where your orders are filled by a local, independent store!).

We’ve created a series of YouTube videos that will show you the basics of assembling these easy-to-use products, and they will give you some additional ideas for adding your own artistic flair if desired.

Chicks at Home

Everyday Chicks Blog Banner

Everyday Chicks are having fun at home today. It’s so easy to have the right number of kids, moms, dads, cousins, uncles, aunts, whatever you need for your special family when you play with our terrific chicks. Every occasion can include the whole gang!

The chicks are premium clear stamps with a set of coordinating dies right in the package. You can find them in your favorite store or on our website by clicking the picture below.  You can see that the set comes with three sizes of chicks and a ton of everyday and special occasion accessories. The dies are all attached in one big piece so that you can easily clip them apart for use. They do not line up with the stamps to cut in a big group, because every stamp is separate to save on paper. There are 25 stamps, each with its own die. The accessories die cut right on the edge of the image, but the chicks have a little space around them so they look fluffy. You can color outside the lines on your chicks to get that fluffy, feathery look.

Each leaf shape works for any season by simply changing up the color of cardstock or using pattern paper and add dimension by gently bending the leaf shapes so they pop off the wreath base.

Gingerbread Baker Sweater by Janelle Stollfus

The fun in our weekly theme is arriving on Thursday to see what stencils we’ll add in the mix, but today there is a twist and it could be just about any one of our stencils!

We’ve given our Gingerbread Baker a personal day off and out of the kitchen so we can inspire you with some stenciling idea.

Janelle created a colorful sweater for our baker with Ornate Christmas Tree Stencil to make the sweater on the first card in this post. Use any stencil to make a colorful design and create a oodles of tops, dresses and pants. All you need are a few sticky notes, ink pads, stencil brushes or sponges and a fresh cut Gingerbread Baker.

Gingerbread Baker Jump Rope by Janelle Stollfus

This gingerbread gal is smiling much wider as she’s enjoying some time jumping rope. That super smiling face was made using the shape templates on the Picasso Shield/Stencil tool. Create more expressions just by changing the angles or choosing a different shape!
