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 –

QSets Celebrate the Reason for the Season

QSets Cling Rubber

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!

Bible Journaling with Stampendous!

bible_journal_title1

Our new Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Bible Journal and Bible Promises are perfect for working in the new Journaling Bibles that are available.

You can find lots of journaling bibles online, including on Amazon.com, but they’re a bit of an investment, so we decided to practice by making one of our own.

We downloaded the whole King James Bible as a .txt file from this website – Free Bible Download

Then we formatted just the first 130 chapters of the Book of Psalms. We thought you might like to practice along with us.

You can download our formatted pages here. They are designed to print on 8-1/2″ X 11″ paper and the dark lines are intended as cutlines so that you’ll end up with standard 6″ X 9″ journaling bible pages with 2″ margins on the sides for journaling.  Psalms.pdf

Fran has made a terrific video showing some fun techniques for working with stamps and inks in your Bible:

And our Design Team had some fun playing with these stamps in our October Catalog:
