Introducing Snowy Scenes, Turtle Doves and Christmas Magic

Hello everyone, I hope that you have been enjoying the warmer temperatures recently. In the crafting diary, our thoughts are turning towards Christmas at this time of year. So I would like to introduce the first of our 2014 Christmas stamps to you. These are a wonderful addition to our Christmas collection as stand alone stamps, or to mix and match with our existing stamp range. There are a mix of both modern and vintage images on the stamp plates.

We have two A5 stamp sets, the first of which is called Snowy Scenes:


The second is called Turtle Doves:


Both sets are available at an introductory price, but as usual you can save even more money by taking advantage of our multi-buy offer.

We also have Christmas Magic, one of our expanding collection of clear stamp sets. These words will make a very useful addition to your Christmas card making or for gift tags  The set is also available at an introductory price.


Introductory prices are available on all 3 sets until 31st August 2014.

My sample uses stamps taken from the Turtle Doves stamp set. I used one of the corner branch stamps to create a wreath by stamping repeatedly in a ring onto a white card, using green ink. I coloured the berries using a Distress Marker and a waterbrush. I embossed the two turtle doves using gold embossing powder, and coloured those in the same way. The sentiment comes from the Christmas Magic clear stamp set.


There will be some fabulous inspiration from my Design Team mates using these lovely stamps coming very soon.

  2. Lovely stamps. My favourite is the Turtle Doves set and love the beautiful C&S card you made with them. I can never have enough sentiment stamps either.

  3. My favourite is the Turtle Doves set and the card example you made is beautiful.Did you have to do some preliminary measuring and experimenting before you stamped the wreath?

    1. Thank you, yes, I worked the wreath out on scrap paper first to see how many times I needed to stamp the image. I did get it right first time, funnily enough. Judith x

  12. This is a super piece of designing Judith - the star-shaped wreath looks magical with the turtle doves nestling amongst the foliage I love the fact that you've placed the wreath slightly to the left to balance the sentiment on the right. The mixture of gold with red & green is a super choice for these very British traditional images.
    My favourite is the Turtle Doves………. & aren't they gorgeously stylised? Terrific that there are several sizes of them too.
