We’re back with some spooky fun this week and a new prize being offered. This week we celebrate our super fun Halloween Hats Cling Rubber Stamps and Die Set! We just love having the matching dies for our stamps! It’s so much fun to cut out things and layer them up and up and up! We’ll be giving a set away for comments on this post or on our SPECIAL 31 Days of Halloween Page. Each week we’ll draw from all the comments that have been made on that page and on that week’s blog posts.
These Halloween hats fit beautifully on the Pumpkins in this set, but our Sugar Skull can also wear them at a jaunty angle, and we bet you’ll find a lot more perfect fits for these great hats.
We’ve noticed they’re also perfect when paired with our Pop Up Stages! Take a look at how our own Fran Seiford used them here! You can click on the large card to be taken to the project on our website.

This time of year it’s so fun to sit around and wait for those first flurries of snow! The anticipation of building that first snowman of the year! What a fun time Winter can be!
Our Smiling Snowman Cling Rubber Stamp Set with matching dies is perfect for crafting yourself a little bit of cozy Winter fun!
Our own Fran Seiford also designed them to work perfectly with our Pop Up Stages Cutting Dies. And she’s made this adorable card to show us!
It’s so fun and frosty with the glitter on the scarves and gloves! Plus the little “doily” shape where the words go is made from one of the “edger” dies in our older Build a Pop Up Die Set. Pop up cards like this are easy when you have helpful cutting dies to make it quickly. This adorable card also uses the charming trees in the Smiling Snowman set. And our Creative Palette makes the perfect Snowy Day background.
We sure enjoyed introducing the new Pop Up Stages Die Set to you this week. If you loved a project you saw this week why not share it with a friend on Facebook or pin to one of your Pinterest boards to use as inspiration for your next project!
Here are a few more project ideas from our design team today. Enjoy!
Our new birds from the Cling Spring Tweets Stamp Set are chirping to pop onto a spring project and with the January catalog release, we have products to develop that creative idea!
Cling Spring Tweets Stamp Set has lovely little birds who are ready to nest amongst flowering tree branches in oodles of different arrangements and layering them is easy with the coordinating shapes in the Spring Tweets Cutting Die Set. So easy you will want to make a flock of these little darlings.
Now, to make them pop just add any combination of platforms or columns from Pop Up Stages Die Set to your background layer and voila your project has a popping effect!
On Fran’s birthday card you can see how amazing these products work together, the possibilities are endless! If you missed it, Monday’s post we shared more about the Pop Up Stages Die Cutting Set in a video so hop on over there if you’re curious for more information!
And for even more fresh and popping new project ideas stop by our designers who are posting this week!
Our new Pop Up Die Set is setting the stage for some exciting pop ups in columns and platforms! Use Pop Up Stages with any type of stamped and die cut or hand trimmed shapes like images from Family Home, Pretty Poppies, and Spring Tweets stamp sets.
Pop Up Stages dies are so versatile as separate pieces you can use a single column die to make a flower bouquet pop off the background as on Debi Hammons beautiful card here.
Using two or more column dies will create varying depths for a fun scene. Add the tab die anywhere for a popping greeting!
Get started designing projects that pop by watching this basic tips video with Fran, then enjoy creating endless configurations on your projects.
This week we asked our team to share projects using Pop Up Stages Die Cut Set and the Spring Tweets stamp and die cutting sets for tons of inspiration! Here is the list of participating designers today –

By now I’m guessing that this set of Cling Stamps and their matching Cutting Dies are reeeeaaaally familiar to you. There’s a very good reason why the “Create Christmas” sets have been featured all of this week…they are amazingly versatile! Mix them up with Dreamweaver designs by Stampendous, and the possibilities are endless.
You’ve learned how to color these images. You’ve learned how to paper piece them with designer papers. You’ve learned to simply stamp and emboss the images. Now, how about ink-stenciling a background design over the tree? How about pasting a design on the tree? How about adding a bit of Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to edges to create snow? For more dimension and the wow factor, how about running the tree through your embossing machine with the Dreamweaver stencil backgrounds or embossing folders? Now we’re talking! Here are just a few designs that would work well for these techniques, a few of which are considered “everyday” designs to be used year round for all of your Stampendous/Dreamweaver projects:
And add some of this…
A healthy sprinkling of this…
And you could have something like this fun card by Pam Hornschu…
Several of our team members have some more Christmas creations to share with you today:
We are here today with more Christmas trees from the design team linked up towards the end of our post, but before we hop on over to see them we have a great video with Fran Seiford using Create Christmas.
You’ll see plenty of ideas for tree styles and colors plus somewhere in the video Fran gives a tip on making different styles of glistening snow and vintage decorations.
Let’s hop on over to these designer projects for more inspiration!
Are you ready to create a little Christmas this week? We are!
One of the loved traditions of Christmas season is finding the perfect evergreen tree and decorate it with treasured ornaments and accessories. Now we can create a grove of fun Christmas trees in assorted styles and decorations with two new products from our July 2015 catalog.
Cling Create Christmas Stamp Set includes a shapely tree and adornment stamps to make a jolly holiday tree project of your very own. This set also includes a free stencil for easy coloring and masking on your projects and we’ll show you how to use it all this week.
Stamp and decorate the tree in one layer or easily add dimension with the coordinating Create Christmas Die Set. The possibilities are endless with this set of 12 dies that cut all the stamp set images in Create Christmas even dies to cut the tree into layers for new heights. Add oodles of gifts around your tree with the two rectangle and bow dies.
Decorate this tree quickly by stamping on pattern paper as shown in this festive card by Fran Seiford. Add a few wrapped presents in no time using only dies and more pattern paper, then all that is left is Christmas wish sentiment put together with the Holiday Words Perfectly Clear Stamps Set.
With so many ways to trim a tree with this stamp and die combination our design team have some great Christmas projects to share! Let’s see what they have today!
