Berries and Woodland Wonders

July 18, 2017

Throughout the month of July, we’ve invited some fabulous guest designers to visit here on our blog. They are sure to inspire us all to get a jumpstart on our Christmas creations. Join us over the next three weeks as these wonderful guests feature our classic Christmas stamps and dies. And just when your Christmas crafting mojo is kicking in, we will be here in August to share with you all of our NEW Christmas products!

So what does our guest designer, Heather Hoffman, have for us today? Let’s start with this pair of modern, clean and simple creations. We love the unique look she’s given our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-492 Berry Kissed.

Notes from Heather: I wanted to stretch this beautiful stamp set to a slightly different use than most of the samples I had seen. I love the simple elegance of it stamped in black – it really lets the intricate details show!

Notes from Heather: I also thought it was fun to get two cards for nearly the same effort as one, by stamping it a second time without re-inking for a softer effect that allowed me to stamp the sentiment directly over the top.

Next, Heather highlights our Creative Die set, 51-265 Woodland Scene. Her card design captures the majesty of winter in a style that can easily be mass produced.

Notes from Heather: This die cut set is SO fun and intricate! It really makes cards easy – it stands so well on it’s own with not much else needed but a simple sentiment!

And speaking of clean and simple Christmas cards…
