She keeps us all in order, makes our projects look professional in print and online and treats us with all sorts of crafting goodies to share Stampendous inspiration with all of you! Today’s hop is our way to say thank you for all that she does and wish her a supercalifragilisticexpialidocoius day….

Festive Wreaths Aplenty

Build A Wreath Wood by Debi Hammons

There are plenty of ways to make a wreath with our Build A Wreath Die Cut Set for any occasion or any season.

DCP1007 Build A Wreath Cutting Die Set

Send a wreath card in the mail for a housewarming welcome, hang a garland of seasonal wreaths in the entryway to welcome visitors and add table decorations for that special dinner party. There are endless possibilities with this set and we have a few projects tips to get you started.

Build A Wreath by Debi Hammons

This fall foliage wreath has a wonderful dimension with pinecones that are inked lightly on the scales to create texture and depth.

Add a few glittery ornaments on a wreath using the smallest circle die in the set.

Each leaf shape works for any season by simply changing up the color of cardstock or using pattern paper and add dimension by gently bending the leaf shapes so they pop off the wreath base.

For this last week of 31 Days we are adding in a Halloween theme and we’ll be showing you lots of ways to get wrapped up in costumes for cards, treat bags, and scrapbook pages.  Shall we get started with one today?

Here is a great little monster card by Wendy Price with the Who Am I and Shadows rubber stamps. Click on the caption for a complete list of supplies with instructions to make one just like it!

More Options to Stack

ssc1249_03_fs_800
Winter Stack Skiers by Fran Seiford

We have a second stacking stamp set to share that is just as fun to play with as our Woodsy Stack. It may be difficult to decide which one is more fun to stack and maybe a few samples shared will help you understand why.

ssc1249_winter_stack_pkg_800
SSC1249 Winter Stack Perfectly Clear Stamps Set

This fun set comes with 9 image stamps to make many different snowman winter scenes like the card Fran made with the Skier and snowflakes (above), but also a two-stamp sentiment that works well for combining into one or creating an outside and inside sentiment on a the card.
