Bewitching new stamps - with a tempting giveaway!

We have just brought out some new stamps including some larger Christmas sentiments and some Halloween stamps.  I'm also doing a giveaway this month - details below.

The Bold Christmas Words are proving to be SO useful - they're big enough to be the focal point for a card which is great if you need to produce a batch of cards in a hurry (which I inevitably will, despite the best of intentions to have a stack of cards made in plenty of time!).

 
 
 

 
 

All of the words are available as individual stamps, or you can save money and buy them as a full set.



Here's a super quick card featuring the Big Bold Holly background and one of the new greetings.


This is a super simple card - the holly background is stamped in Versafine Olympia Green and layered onto red card.  The sentiment was stamped onto a die cut with a mix of Versafine Crimson Red and Satin Red.  I swirled the same reds around the edges too with a stencil brush.  A little ribbon and three crystals finish it off - super quick, job done.

For all you Halloween fans, we have two new rubber sets too.



These are both A5 sets and are both our featured Stamps of the Month, on special offer until the end of September.  Again, you can save money when you buy them both together as a multi-buy.






This Halloween card features a background I made with an acrylic block and Splash inks - a technique I covered in Monday Mojo issue 17.  I stamped the tree and bats and embossed with black embossing powder, then drew a horizon line and painted beneath it with black Golden Fluid Acrylic.  I stamped the toadstools and raven along the bottom with orange ink, then sanded the black paint lightly to make it more matte. 

I stamped the sentiment with Brilliance Moonlight white and embossed with white powder.  The witch is an old Martha Stewart punch which actually has a cauldron on, but I cut it into a broomstick shape instead.  There's also a punched railing along the bottom, but the camera struggled to pick up the black on black there so you'll have to take my word for it.

I've got a few of the words and a set each of the Halloween stamps to give away this month, so please leave me a comment here or on Facebook if you'd like to be entered into the draw.  Let me know if you are a fan of Halloween or not, as I'd hate to send out an unwelcome prize to anyone.

I think the girls have been particularly inventive with these Halloween stamps, showing that they can be used for other occasions too.  The Christmas stamps have been rushed out (as so many of you have told us you need them NOW) so most of the DT girls haven't had a chance to work with them yet.  But stay tuned for some glorious artwork heading your way soon.

  1. OMG! Those Halloween stamps are so gorgeous, trouble is that if I try to sneak them into an order my husband will do his nut :-((
    Pretty Please does not work either at the moment as I've been told I've got too much as it is :-(( I've tried to tell him he has too many golf balls & he turns around & says "but I won some!" maybe I an win these & turn the tables on him!!!

  10. I've had some fun with Halloween images - though I don't celebrate it for toadstools & interesting trees & wonky mansions make rather good companions for fairies & creating Fantasy landscapes so I'd certainly not be averse to Halloween if I should win some. It's super seeing what you've done with these bright colours & black & I love the use of the traditional colours for the Christmas sample.

  25. The stamps are beautiful, as usual - I don't think I've seen Chocolate Baroque stamps I don't like! I don't send out Halloween cards, but the stamps are still great, perfect for cards for teenagers too I think. Also for Carnaval (Carnival) which we celebrate in the South part of the country. But Christmas Words are allways welcome too!
