Festive Post

Want to send friends and family some festive posts all season long? This stamp set will allow you to do just that. The Festive Post stamp set (153460) found on page 63 of the Mini Catalog not only covers several holidays, but also has a coordinating punch, the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch (152709).

I just love the size of these images, it makes them great for all kinds of projects. Check out this first card made for Halloween.

The punch makes it quick and easy to add layers . And how about this next card with its traditional colors for Christmas?

Turnovers

Can you believe it is already the middle of October and that means we are in the holiday count down. Over the next few days I’ll be sharing cards with you using sets that you can use for multiple fall and winter events. Sets like these give you more bang for your buck they also all use punches which make crafting quick, easy and economical too.

Today’s card uses the Turnover stamp set (154873) found on page 60 of the Mini Catalog. If you haven’t heard of our Reversible stamp sets you’re going to love this new stamping option as each stamp gives you 2 images! How cool is that?

It’s so easy. There are images on both sides of the stamp! Which is great since it gives you even more stamping choices. While these two cards use the line image the reverse side gives you a two step option and the ability to add color quickly and easily with this set.

This first card is a Halloween card and uses a clean and quick layout that highlights the image and sentiment from the Hallows Night Magic stamp set (153356).

It also uses the fun Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper (153517) and the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (152494). And this next card uses the ornament images.

Using a quick and easy Designer Series Paper technique to show you both sides of the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (153492) to draw your eye to the sentiment. A couple of quick swishes with your coordinating Stampin’ Blends and your done and ready for holiday card sending!

Did you know that these Designer Series Papers are part of our October sale? These and so many more are discounted until the end of October. Why not stop by my online store and see them all?

Then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing projects made with the Festive Post stamp set.

Celebration Tidings

I just love it when a bundle gives you both a great stamp set that you can use for several occasions and a wonderful set of dies. And the Celebration Tidings Bundle does just that. Not only will you love the images in this set but the labels in the coordinating dies are very versatile and can be used will all kinds of stamps.

Take a look at these first 2 cards that use the lovely pumpkin image

Teamed up with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and Embroidered Ribbon it’s got a lot of texture and a great Halloween feel. And this card below uses the same image with a different sentiment. The image is framed this time with the Stitched Rectangle Dies (151820) and the little acorn and leaves from the Beautiful Autumn Bundle (155189) a pop of interest and color in the lower corner.

These next two cards were created for Christmas using the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (153492)

Flipping the dies on their side gives this last card a different feel and the Detailed Trio Punch (146320) in the lower corners allows a bit of the Old Olive to peek through.

Boo to You & More

There is a nip in the air now, and we’ve had some beautiful fall days so I thought I’d share with you some Halloween cards as the little trick or treaters will be knocking on our doors soon. My kids used to love playing dress up and I would sew their costumes so that they could play in them all year long. Anyhow, great memories but that was many moons ago… So here are some great cards that are a lot of fun for us grown ups who enjoy a bit of Halloween fun too.

This first card uses one of my favorite sets Birds of a Feather (150571) from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.

This stamp set includes 4 little chicks are dressed up for 4 different winter holidays which makes it a great set for those cards and treats we will be making!

And of course I’ve shared these adorable little monsters with you before from the Boo To You stamp set (150550) in an earlier post for a fun treat item.

And finally if you like a more realistic look for Halloween you’ll want to check out The Raven (150593) great for simple stamping since the art work is great all by itself.

The moon on this card was created by using a simple masking technique. Cut out a circle from a sticky note place it where you’d like and then use a Stampin’ Sponge to add ink. Remove the sticky note when you’re done and you have this great moon. So simple, but it creates a great effect!

So what do you think? Like these cards? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which you like the best? Then stop by my Online Store and get yours.
