New Die Sets Plus Winners!

Our newest die sets are super versatile sets that you’ll reach for all year round. They’re great for holiday card making, but they have some awesome elements you’ll use again and again all year! Fran made some great samples with these which are shown in the video below. And our Design Team has been playing with these and others all week. Check out their links.

First, Christmas Bright  includes a couple of small clear stamps, nesting cutting die words which will look great out of your favorite paper patterns or cardstock colors, a bow to duplicate as many times as desired, and nesting ovals which will be awesome for so many everyday uses!

Falling Into House-Mouse Fun

Create Fall week is coming to a finish with a visit from some furry friends and their own twist on the theme. Our fall-themed House-Mouse Designs® collection is growing by two with these new stamps and it seems they are falling for fall.

These four friends are taking turns in their own mousey version of paragliding for some real Fall fun. They make any adventure look like fun!

There are two more stamps already in our fall House-Mouse Design collection that would make a great card set or framed art decor.

You can create oodles of fall projects by adding colorful leaves with Jumbo Cling Rubber Leaves or Cling PenPattern Leaves and cut out with the coordinating Leaves Die Set. They are fantastic as part of your fall decor and even help frame your photos during the fall season!

As our House-Mouse friends would have it, their adventure continues next week with Mousey Mischief stamps so come back and see us next week! Until then let’s hop on over to these designer projects for some fall-abulous projects —

We have a great technique to start off our week that will add metallic shine to your embossing paste. Watch the video tutorial with founder of Dreamweaver Stencils, Lynell Harlow, as she creates a stunning hot air balloon card in two different applications.

That is an easy way to spice up your embossed stencil image and that extra sparkle it creates to a project. If you’re interested and for your convenience, here is a list of products and supplies used in the video.

This hot air balloon project started us off with a great view of what is in store for this week and there is still more today from our design team. Let’s fly by and see what they made playing with paste!
