Thursday stencils are here for all the merry creations we love to make around Santa traditions. With festive trees to tuck presents under and a stocking to stuff, there is a terrific design in our Christmas stencils collection to make a memorable project. There is a farm of trees we offer in many styles and a string of lights to wrap up your project.
A festive package and a long stocking are ready to deliver the gifts of the season.
The possibilities are endless with more Christmas theme stencils on our website and for project ideas, hop on through our designer’s post this week!
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.
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!
Need a little more inspiration? You are in luck because we have more from our designers today!
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.
Monica is helping a friend get ready for the holidays with a pretty red bow and there are festive concerts to attend like the House-Mouse crew are performing for their friend.
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.
It seems the House-Mouse and Friends can tell quite a great story for the holidays and we’ve enjoyed traveling through the week with them and sharing some great project ideas. And those projects get added to our House-Mouse Designs® Projects Pinterest board so visit and subscribe to get new ideas as projects are always being added!
Now it’s time for more fantastic inspiration from the design team today –
We made it to All Hallow’s Eve, one more time around the crafty cauldron of Halloween inspiration! We dusted off our project coffin and have some eerie treasures for today, we hope you all have a fun, safe celebration with a few spooky treats!
We dusted off our project coffin and have some eerie treasures for today, let’s take a look at four projects old and new!
Lea Fritts’ project is haunting us with a character skeleton and a happy greeting! What a frightful and fun card! Next is an amazingly colored owl card by Wendy Price, those eyes they are fantastic!
Laura Drahozal is spooking us toward the Haunted Mansion with that foggy sky and old worn look of her image!
These spiders are entranced by Skeleton Lady on Asia King’s card, a popular image that never loses its level of eerie vibes.
And the last inspiration for today is a peek before you hop on over to see the full project.
Thank you all for such a FANtastic month of participation in our 31 Days of Halloween. We sure have enjoyed your comments, liking our projects and sharing what you love about Halloween. Now here is more inspiration from the Wicked Bloggers who have posted all month long on their blogs!
Today we are wrapping up the Costume theme and today’s product is a little monster perfect to celebrate Halloween.
The funny face and bent torso can lead your project for the many moods of Halloween.
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.

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!
Here are a few more ideas from the design team today with chilling effects!
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.
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!
The possibilities and choices we have with our Fall theme Dreamweaver Stencils is plentiful and we are going to take a grand look at them plus our usual fantastic design team will be sharing samples with them!
To start off our design team samples we shared at the beginning of the post Louise Healy’s card where she made a triple pumpkin card adding lots of great earth texture with Essentials.
Celebrate the fall season in gorgeous colors of the maple leaf as Pam Hornschu created with stencils and dies on her card.
But don’t forget the garden with it’s potential for harvest. Laura Drahozal created this beautiful grape cluster card that we just love.
We have more brilliant projects from our design team today we know you’ll enjoy!
