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.
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.
If you enjoyed our stamps today, you’ll be in for a treat with these designer projects –
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!
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 —
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.
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.
Now those are some cute robots! There are even more to be seen in today’s line up on designer blogs. We hope you enjoy your mini Bot-hop today and have a great weekend!
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.
There are many more pictures of this project on Lea’s blog, but if you missed out on our collaboration you can click the caption to see this robot from all sides. We also made a special gallery page that includes projects from the entire hop that we know you’ll enjoy seeing.
For today, though, we have some super talented designer’s posting projects to spark your mojo!
All it takes are some festive paper, a stamp and ink, then some glue. If you can find supplies in five minutes, you can finish it in ten minutes. Here’s a card that was made just with that in mind.
The diamond shape stamps in Yule Diamonds Perfectly Clear Stamp Set adds just the right angle to keep the card interesting and the design options will provide plenty of different cards with the same layout.
As the bat theme continues this week we’d like to introduce you to a smaller bat hanging around in our Halloween themed stamps. You can find it in the Tricky Words Perfectly Clear Stamps Set to be used for your next Halloween project or perhaps use it with face paint for a temporary tattoo! There are also plenty of word stamps and small images to build your own sentiment, perfect for tags on your treat bags.
These beautiful collage stamps we’re featuring this week capture perfectly the Fran•táge style. Vintage, shabby chic, a bit timeworn and well-loved (or neglected), all these elements lend a charm and beauty to items and greetings. We’ve done the work for you with collages of vintage and original images combined with Fran’s flair for composition to create these gorgeous stamps. Each with a small space perfect for the greetings from our Quotes Perfectly Clear Stamps™ sets.
The design team has been sharing all week, and they’ve more to share today! Hope you’ve enjoyed the inspiration and might want to add a couple of these images to your collection!
Kristine Reynolds made this gorgeous card without a greeting! So festive and sweet with all the butterflies adding so much texture, and using the Encrusted Jewel Technique on the edges of her focal point!
Here’s some more inspiration from our terrific team!
