These PenPattern stamps for the holidays are a great way to sneak in some hand-eye coordination with your children over the holidays. The pattern is already started in the stamp image and the challenge is to repeat them in the rest of the snowman. The children aren’t the only ones that can have fun. Join in with them and doodle to de-stress!
You’ve seen our PenPattern Gift, PenPattern Moose and PenPattern Penguin this week and now it’s time for PenPattern Snowman.
Design team alumni, Krissy Fossmeyer, created this fun colored Snowman for a quick holiday card project a sparkly bed of snow at the foot of the snowman. See how she made it HERE.
PenPattern Penguin is back today on a card by Wendy Price with instructions right HERE. Look at how adorable this image is with just a little bit of color.
We have more inspiration for you before the weekend begins, just check out the delightful projects from our designers.
This week our Design Team is playing with the beautiful butterfly stamps we released in April. These gorgeous images are already collaged for you. With enough area to be fun to color and enough background to save you heaps of time, they’re a super quick way to get a gloriously textured, layered card. You can cut out the butterfly from a second stamping to add depth, or simply stamp in black over your Creative Palette monoprints for a fast and easy card.
Melinda! Stampendous owner and stamp artist, Fran Seiford, chose Melinda’s because she “loved the design use of circles and the bright cheery colors.” Melinda used the Love Robotz Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.
Since this is 4th of July weekend and we are celebrating America’s freedom, we are giving you the “freedom” to express your creativity. That means that this week there is no set sketch so anything goes! You can make anything that your little heart desires!
