Nativity scene, angels and wise men, oh MY! We are wrapping up our week of inspiration with visions of the Christmas story through our newest stencils and stamps, plus we have more from our design team.
Celerate the tiny babe’s story with distant travellers in the Wise Men stencil that helps you create layers on your stenciling project or the season’s iconic nativity scene. Louise Healy made a fabulous card with the Wise Men stencil that we’ve linked below in the Monday hop list. Stop by and see it if you haven’t yet.
And more images that remind us of the season with our cozy country church scene and angel stencils, too.
There are just a couple more stamps that we’ve saved to go along with our stencils. We just love how they all work together for a wonderful season of celebration. It’s only days away now!

There’s lots more waiting to inspire you! Start hopping through to see these designer’s projects:
Our new Perfectly Clear Stamps™ Bible Journal and Bible Promises are perfect for working in the new Journaling Bibles that are available.
You can find lots of journaling bibles online, including on Amazon.com, but they’re a bit of an investment, so we decided to practice by making one of our own.
We downloaded the whole King James Bible as a .txt file from this website – Free Bible Download
Then we formatted just the first 130 chapters of the Book of Psalms. We thought you might like to practice along with us.
You can download our formatted pages here. They are designed to print on 8-1/2″ X 11″ paper and the dark lines are intended as cutlines so that you’ll end up with standard 6″ X 9″ journaling bible pages with 2″ margins on the sides for journaling. Psalms.pdf
Fran has made a terrific video showing some fun techniques for working with stamps and inks in your Bible:
And our Design Team had some fun playing with these stamps in our October Catalog:
The October catalog brings a little bit of early spring inspiration with butterflies and flowers in all sorts of styles. As you can see our Butterfly Wings Background is a graphical design that is great all by itself as Fran’s card above shows so well and can be joined with so many other stamps in our catalog.
As for the florals offered in this release, we have a pretty cute admirer for the lilacs in this House-Mouse Designs card by Kristine Reynolds. There are oodles of squeak worthy stamp images for spring House-Mouse and they are easy to browse through over on our website right now in the New House-Mouse Designs section!
Now that we’ve started the inspiration it’s time to keep the momentum going with our designer favorites being shared today! Enjoy!
