Gnomes for all Seasons

The new Stampendous Gnomes and Friends Die Set gives you tons of options for creating darling gnomes and their families for the Holiday Season. In a new, exclusive video, Fran shows you how to take these darling gnomes and make Santa, Mrs. Santa, and the elves.

Isn’t that sweet?!! What a creative idea. Here’s another…

We challenged our Design Team to create a Halloween witch using these same gnome dies, and teamie Alison Heikkila really rose to the challenge! She created this darling witch with her sweet black kitty using the Gnomes and Friends Dies with a background using the elements from the Corny Candy Perfectly Clear Stamps Set to create a complete card! Be sure to check out her darling project here –

Curio Rubber Stamps Banner

We are always curious what we’ll get for the holidays. Just like kids, we hope for our favorite toys… stamps! Well this year we’re asking for our stockings to be filled with CURIO Rubber Stamps. They’re so cute, will look so adorable in our stamp room, and will help us with our holiday stamping for years to come!

Today we’re looking at the last of our new CURIO Rubber Stamps, the darling Brown Bear. He just looks like he can’t wait for Santa to come down his chimney! What a cutie!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Wednesday.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

This week we’re celebrating Santa and all the fun he brings at Christmastime. We’re giving away one of our Santa On His Way stamps to one lucky commenter on our blog or one of our Design Team blog posts this week! In case you missed Monday’s inspiration or the chance to comment, you can find it here. And, of course, the official rules are always HERE.

Today Santa is flying overhead past a wonderful, coastal lighthouse. His reindeer can use the lovely beams of light to help guide their way. This is another great stamp that just needs a bit of spot color to really fill up a card layer and provide you with a “one and done” holiday greeting. It’s available in both wood mounted and cling rubber and it’s called Lighthouse Christmas.

Santa Words and Peppermints Plenty

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!
