New Crimson Cloud Christmas stamp set samples

Hi Folks,
We have had a great week playing with the new Christmas stamp sets and have created some fun samples!

This four-step stamping card was made using the Holly Wreath and Bow stamp set

Holly Wreath and Bow set

This beautiful card was made using the Mistletoe stamp set

This cozy tartan card was created with the Pine Boughs and Fir Cones stamp set - great for building backgrounds.

And finally this card was made in very non-traditional colours using the Noel Bells stamp set

Keep an eye out for more inspiration coming from our design team next week.

Best wishes

New Crimson Cloud exclusive Christmas stamps now in stock!

The brand new Crimson Cloud A6 clear Christmas stamp sets have just arrived and are now in stock.

Pine Boughs and Fir Cones


Noel Bells
The Noel Bells stamp set includes a two step bell - stamp the out line bell in one colour, and the solid bell in another. Fantastic for the "kiss" stamping technique!

Holly Wreath and Bow

The Holly Wreath and Bow set is a three step stamp set. You stamp the main wreath, then over stamp the berries and bow in different colours.

Look out for the samples which we will be uploading soon!

Wood Veneer Poppies

I absolutely adore these new Poppy stamps from My Favorite Things

and coordinating dies from DieNamics!
For this project

I teamed the Poppies with the new Wood Veneer panels which are now available exclusively from Crimson Cloud

These real wood veneer panels come in packs of four sheets. They are available in two different sizes and three different colours. Click here to see the full range.

They are perfect for stamping and heat embossing on and can also be die cut.

To die cut them it is best to use a simple outline die (like this poppy head). Detailed dies do not work as well as they are too intricate. Bigz dies are perfect and cut the veneer like butter!

As you can see from my sample, the wood veneer can also be stamped on.
I find that it is best to use Stazon or Archival ink pads to prevent the ink from bleeding into the wood.

I hope you have fun with this new and versatile product!

Best wishes

My Favorite Things and Die-Namics......

are now available at Crimson Cloud.

Our favourites (and it was very difficult to choose!) include the Pretty Poppies stamp set

with co-ordinating dies

And here is what you can do with these lovelies -

For our second Poppy card I combined them with the Scattered Stars die

to produce a background for the die cut poppies

The Dandelion Wishes stamp set is equally inspiring!

with its matching die set
I made the first sample just using the stamps -

The second sample I made using the washi tape stamp and die set

to create this quick and simple card

I hope you are inspired by these samples and have fun playing with these beautiful stamp and die sets.

Check out for more of the My Favorite Things and Die-namics range.

Some more crafty inspiration from the Design Team

This week we have had some more fabulous samples from the design team, using the Buttons, Bees and Circles stamp release.

Cheremane was using the Circle Sentiments stamp set

came up with this "Amazing" card....

More details of her card can be found here.

Sandra has been thinking "out of the box" with the Textured Buttons stamp set

She designed a totally unique button flower

More details of this flower card can be found here.

Linda also used the Textured Buttons to create her card - stamping them in brown ink to look like real wooden buttons.

Meanwhile, Lisa was playing with the Bee Sentiment stamp set 

and she created a beautiful card to coordinate with the gift bag she made last week

Details of her card can be found here.

Debs decided to use her Bee Backgrounds stamp set

to create a luxurious monochrome card which would certainly cheer up any recipient!

Details of her card can be found here on Debs' Facebook page.

I hope you find these samples inspiring and have fun with these stamp sets.
