Aren’t shoe glad it’s Thursday? Oh we are, since it’s time for some stenciling inspiration that is solely about shoes!

This dazzling fashion stiletto stencil is a new design by Fran Seiford with nice open spaces for adding unique details with so many techniques. Here’s one idea by Janelle Stollfus who used a second brush stenciling over the Stiletto for a great design.

There are more great projects to see with this fashion stencil over on these designers’ blog today! Enjoy and we’ll see you here tomorrow!

We have some great stamp images to share today as we move through the week of our Child Is Born theme. First up are these two sweet onlookers towards Bethlehem as the star shines brightly in the sky. What a sweet night scene that is colored so beautifully by Alison Heikkila.

Another city scape stamp for today is this beautiful silhouette of the city of Jesus’ birth. Easy to emboss or stamp and go for a quick make of greeting cards.

The holy night would be much quieter without the words from popular verses and carols that are captured in our inspirational and icon stamp set, Joyful Phrases Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.

Laura Drahozal created this sweet card that was shared last week for our House-Mouse theme, but take a look at the great text background! Even as a backup to the Joyful Noise of mouse and bird, these sentiments shine on their own.

A Sheltering Tree

In the April Catalog we released these fantastic stamps and stamp set that would love a word or two to be rooted along with them in any project. Remember Cling Pop Up Forest Stamp Set and it’s coordinating Pop Up Forest Die Set, Tree House Rubber Stamp and Coral Tree.

We have a grove of sentiments in our Perfectly Clear Stamp Set that can be used by themselves or with any of our tree image stamps.

Here is a sweet journal cover by Fran Seiford that is using an encouraging sentiment from the set. Look at the way Fran popped some of the images off the page just by using different color cardstock, so creative!

Pop Up Forest and Forest Sayings by Fran Seiford

Our older and beloved tree stamps like Twisted Tree, Snowflake Tree and Swing Tree can be paired on a new project with some of the witty or thoughtful sayings from Forest Perfectly Clear Stamp Set, too. We wouldn’t want to “leaf” any tree out, right?

Speaking of leaving something out, we have TWO fantastic videos about the Pop Up Forest products and yesterday we inadvertently deleted the link to one of them. We shared a great video on how to use this great stamp set to create projects for any season of the year. You can watch it here, The other video is a great introduction by Fran using the Pop Up Forest Stamp and Die Sets together with a treasure of tips and techniques that included a glimpse of the Forest Saying Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

Now that we’ve loaded your creative coffer with project ideas are you ready for the dog days of summers or a tree-mendous card for a birthday? Well, you are not far from inspiration! Here are a few great projects posted by our design team today —

Feline Sentiments of the Day

With all these tabby projects for Kute Kitties week, we can’t possibly finish without a few more words. In fact, there are quite a few words and phrases to say when it comes to cute kitties and they can be found in the Cat Sayings Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

These sayings are perfect for the entire Stampendous clowder, too. If you’re feline curious about seeing them too, you can go to our posts here, here and here, but we still have more fun with our Pop Up Kitties Stamp Set today on these designer blogs. Purrrrrr.

This week’s projects in review!

Spark Up Your Life

Best friends to the very end, Screwloose N Sparky are quite a pair and so expressive for robots. From the Perfectly Clear Stamp Set you can give them a voice with great robot sayings and even a robot-style heartbeat like Screwloose is sporting on this portrait stamp here.

Sparky is such a happy bot-pup that his tail never stops wagging even when the rest of him is perfectly still as on this namesake rubber stamp.

The designers this week did an amazing job on all their projects, bringing out all things robot themed and creating with simple and fun ideas. Wendy Price was so kind to let us post one of her great projects here on the blog using the Screwloose and Sparky Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

This engineered robot was posted by Lea Kimmel during the Artist Trading Block collaboration and we just love how she created a home for Sparky. That’s one happy dog in that window there.

It’s a week of robot fun with our newest family members, Screwloose and Sparky. When they get together there is sure to be some fun, but watch out it can get quite explosive!

Look at this amazing frame by artist consultant and decorative painter, Debbie Cole. She’s made this frame for a special someone, constructing it perfectly right down to the last screw and bolt.
