Smiling in a Merry Little Christmas

[If you’re looking for our 31 Days of Halloween Post – It’s HERE with our participating Design Team inspiration and this week’s contest]

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.

Snowy Scenes of Yore

Our vintage yule stamps capture the charming style of years long ago for your projects today. The Snowman Holly and Winter Delivery images are some of the sweetest we make and are great for cards and scrapbook layouts. They would even look wonderful as decor on a mantle of shelf.

Check out these snowy cards for some inspiration on your next handmade project.

Suzanne Czosek, one of our fabulous Stampendeous Blog stars, made this incredible pop-up Christmas card with our Snowy Short Stacks Perfectly Clear Set of stamps.



Adding glitter to the torn edge looks just like little snowy topped mounds. Gives it an extra chilly appearance.

Looks like these little guys are going to decorate the text trees with the gingerbread garland. O.K. I’m ready to pull out the Christmas decorations and start. Oh, wait. It’s not even Fall yet! Maybe I’ll just pull out the Fall decorations for now.

Nice job Suzanne!
