October 2021 new stamps

Today is October 1st and we have 15 new stamps for you! Our theme is Christmas and Winter Holidays this month and we have some gorgeous stamps for you. As usual, the new stamps are 15% off through October 8th. Simply add them to your shopping cart and the discount will be applied automatically. 

Before I show you some of the artwork I created, I wanted to remind you that the TJ Design Team has an inspiration tour with their artwork. The links are below my art.

Here are some cards to inspire you:

First up, I have the Christmas Frame stamp and one of the stamps from the Light of Faith Sentiment set. The Christmas Frame stamp was designed to be used both vertically and horizontally - as were the sentiments - so all of the sentiments will fit into the frame.


This card uses the Santa's Sleigh stamp with the Merry Christmas to All sentiment. So easy to use - they are perfect together!



Finally for today, I used the Vintage Ornaments  with one of the Light of Faith sentiments for this creation. Note that I colored in the Merry Christmas on the big ornament so that it didn't "compete" with the main sentiment stamp.


 

There is so much more inspiration! Here are the links for the designers participating in the inspiration tour:

I hope you enjoy our stamps this month! Make sure to get your favorites with the discount by October 8th!

I LOVE coloring images with Nuvo Glitter Markers. Our Autumn Floral Mandala is perfect with them - just a little color here and there and we have a shimmering card with stay-put glitter. The sentiment is from the Leopard Set. Stay Wild!

 Curly hair rules! Let your own light shine and let your hair don! Our Copic Colored panel is on top of the Open Rings Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. Thanks to Therm O Web Pixie Spray, the stencil was held firmly enough for Luscious Lawn and Chestnut Mare Shimmering Bliss to be sprayed with perfect results.

Floral Corners under the Mat!


 This is a mistake-proof card! With the floral corners stamped UNDER the mat, overlaps are forgiven. This uses the new Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink on both layers.

Simply stamp the corners on the bottom mat, avoiding overlapping along the edge, then add the top layer to cover up any messiness. Easy Peasy!

The stamp set is HERE. Pat
