We couldn’t leave out Santa sneaking a few presents under the tree!

Santa Words and Peppermints Plenty

With dreams of sugary treats soon dancing in our heads and the wonder of being on the nice list or not, we have the perfect stamps to share that we are thinking about it during this season!

Each stamp is designed to create a fabulous background for cards, Christmas scrapbook pages and more, but they are also terrific in sections! Jamie Martin used the candy cane border design in the Peppermints Plenty stamp to add whimsy to her House-Mouse card.

Wreath Rolling by Louise Healy

Use either stamp in a repeating pattern like the background papers on Laura Drahozal and Louise Healy’s card above and create a fun greeting using just a section of the stamp as well! These designs are a great match to any of our Christmas theme stamps and stencils!

When all the preparations are finished for the holidays there is time for celebrations and we have a few House-Mouse stamps from our 2016 Holiday Catalog that share those moments.

House-Mouse® Hat Box by Lea Fritts

There seems to be some last minute purchases as the mice are trying out hats on the run at Muzzy’s Hats and there is always a certain amount of traveling around the holidays where Gruffies® Biggly and friend are zooming by with a load of presents to deliver.

House-Mouse® Holiday Travel by Kristine Reynolds

2016_31-days-of-halloween

Today we are wrapping up the Costume theme and today’s product is a little monster perfect to celebrate Halloween.

CRQ226 Who Am I Cling Rubber Stamp

The funny face and bent torso can lead your project for the many moods of Halloween.

Who Am I by Alison Heikkila

Alison’s card proves that this little monster could add cheers or fright to your Halloween project. This clever creature could be smiling or afraid in the moonlit. We can’t decide which it is stronger, but we love how Alison finished this card off with stenciling and die cut shapes.

Haunted Mansion On A Hill

Haunted Mansion by Tenia Nelson

The Chill in the air today rises above the hills in our Haunted Mansion stamp! This amazing ominous image is the perfect size for a whole card to use as an invitation and add interest to party decor and more! It would be such a spooktastic party!

Stencils and Pattern Paper Galore!

DWLG686_DWLG616_LH_800
Scarecrow by Louise Healy

 

It’s Stencil Thursday and we are enjoying all the colorful projects this week using Graphic 45 Papers and today is a real treat stenciling right on the pattern paper!

On Louise’s Scarecrow Stencil card she paired him with Rare Oddities and Time to Flourish pattern paper and a beautiful assortment of falling leaves made with the Leaf Texture Background stencil! It has so much action in the design, it’s as if the wind was actually blowing around on the card!

DWLL3016_LH_800
Ice Skates by Louise Healy

Now this card looks fabulous and festive, but it’s also a quick design with Dreamweaver Stencils Ice Skates right on top of the  Christmas Carol pattern paper.

FMS4036_LH_800
Framed Witch by Louise Healy

And this card’s great antiquities and charms from Rare Oddities pattern paper are setting the stage for Fran’s Framed Witch Stencil design. Stenciling directly on pattern paper is a pretty neat idea that will have you thinking tons of ways to create with stencils!

Now let’s hop on through to our designer’s blog projects today!
