My Must Have Stamps This Christmas Season
Our brand new holiday catalog has just been released and I couldn’t wait to tell you about the stamp sets I like best. I’ve picked three sets that I think are versatile enough to work with any of our pattern papers to create several card styles from traditional to playful and bright. Just click on an image for additional details. I’ll be posting loads of projects from cards to gift tags with these sets in the days to come!
Cedar & Pine—Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts
Pair this nutcracker with gorgeous red, gold, and green for a traditional look or add him to pastel cardstock with Ballerina Pink and Sugarplum inks to evoke memories of Tchaikovsky’s ballet fantasy. Create a row of unique nutcrackers for your scrapbook page when you customize his hat and mustache. I think this is the perfect die cut gift tag too!
Merry Christmas Tree
I have always been a huge fan of Base and Shade stamp sets. There is no easier way to add depth and texture to your stamping! Simply change the colors of the ornaments to go from a bright Holly Jolly look to the classic look of Cedar & Pine. New to Base & Shade? Check out this quick video demo to learn how to use them.
Holly Jolly Cardmaking Workshop Kit
I love this adorable elf. Whether you choose to stamp him holding a special delivery page or Santa’s list, he is so easily customized that he had to have a place on my must have stamp list. Let’s be honest. I know exactly what I am going to make with this set and I am going to have a ton of fun putting my little brother’s name on the Naughty List!
I hope this list inspires you to take another look at how you can get the most of your stamp sets by using unexpected colors and customizing the details. Did your favorite set make my list? Be sure to let me know in the comments.
