We’re celebrating the things that make our Christmas Season Merry and Bright this week. You can see the great posts from Monday if you missed it. We have some more fun inspiration for you here today! Here are some more fantastic new products that are perfect for your holiday card making, gift wrapping, home decor, or even gift giving! Check out some of our fun Christmas Perfectly Clear Stamps. Both Snowman Wishes and Poinsettia Wishes contain a ton of awesome greetings you’ll use every year, plus a great border stamp that makes your card “one-and-done” easy. You can use any part of the border for a card the size you like. Both of these are terrific choices from the pen of our own Fran Seiford.
The wonderful Cardinal Border is the same sort of idea from the delightful Laurel Burch Collection. This set comes with lots of greetings, small elements for envelopes or Christmas newsletters, and a great border that can really create a fast card for you. Next week we’ll share tons of Laurel Burch Holiday Inspiration, don’t miss it! Have a look:
We also have some wonderful new Wood Mounted/Cling Rubber (your choice) stamps that give you that “one-and-done” success. Our Parchment Candle, Angel Blessing, Santa on his Way, Pinecone Greeting, Birdie Greetings, Warmest Wishes, Our Doorstep, Winter Home and our Dog Tree, Cat Tree, and Bird Tree stamps are all sized for the top layer of a standard card. This makes it so easy to stamp or emboss them in a solid color, or if you have more time, color until your heart is content. You can find the stamps below on our website on the last pages of the Christmas stamps section. Each one comes in wood mounted or cling rubber.
We also have our delightful Merry and Bright Ornament stamp! It’s perfect for stamping and embossing in several colors for an easy, quick, card!
It looks fantastic on this card by our in-house Sample Artist Debi Hammons.
Here’s some great inspiration from our Design Team today to make your holiday more Merry and Bright:
Halloween is almost upon us! We hope you’re enjoying all the amazing inspiration. Everyone has really outdone themselves with fantastic projects this year! You can see all the links for the month over on our 31 Days of Halloween Page!
We have a wonderful Mother/Daughter project to feature this weekend. Elina P and her 9-year-old daughter, Siouxann, decided to get out our terrific Costume Stack Perfectly Clear Stamps and make some awesome Halloween cards!
This set, like all of our “short stacks” sets is so cute and fun with heads, bodies, legs, arms, hats, and other accessories being interchangeable. The one trick to them is that they don’t have “necks”. Once you stamp them, you’ll see how it goes together, but just stamp the head right on to the body, and it will be obvious. We do get questions about the necks though. (poor Drac… it confuses him something fierce) (but we noticed Siouxann got it right away!) We find using them completely addicting.
Here’s the actual stamp set –
Here’s a video from last year where the Crazy Paper Chick shares her idea of using just the heads from the Costume Stack set. We really love that idea!!
Our own Fran Seiford had a lot of fun with our Costume Stack as well. You can see all her samples on our website, and her video about the set is right here –
And while we’re at it, take a look at the Woodsy Stack, after all, Halloween won’t last forever!
