Stampendous Wishes


Stampendous will be sponsoring Paper Craft Planet for the entire month of November with a series of fun stamping ideas! Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for the entire month, stay tuned for tips and tricks that will help you get a handle on the holidays!

Using this super cute Cling Polar Christmas Stamp, from Stampendous, I had some fun making Paper Christmas Ornament bulbs.  Honestly, this was easy, I think I’ll have the kids do one  each for the tree this year.  I just have to hide the glitter, they tend to go over board.

I followed a very simple tutorial from Homemade Gifts Made Easy, paper from Déjà Views (Global Views), and Cling Polar Christmas Stamp from Stampendous.

So many possibilities with this one!

We will be bringing you these awesome holiday ideas all month long to help you get ready for the holidays. You can access all this inspiration in our Back to Basics Stampendous Groupforever.


Paper Parasol Basket

I couldn’t pass up the fun to partake in the 100th Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge!  I remember when I saw the first challenge & was inspired to craft!

Pride & Prejudice, with a bit of lace!  Gotcha!

A really fast one for me, just a period style Parasol basket!

To fit in some small chocolates or goodies.

That’s all, thanks for the fun!

Just one more sneak peek at one of Adela’s new templates.  I adore all of the templates from Creations by AR, but I LOVE this one!  Totally Tote-able —  Great for chocolates, cookies, any little gift you want to dress up.  Once again, easy to use, using either the pdf or a digital cutting file & look at the cute way it unfolds:

Just fun.

It comes with a scalloped edge & you can punch it with a circle punch or with a tear drop punch, like I did.

This one is going to my Emma-Sian.  :)

Hope you have as much fun with the templates as I did.

Here’s the new 3D Fireplace Card that was so easy to put together, using either the pdf or a digital cutting file:

The 3D card folds down flat for mailing!  Too cool.

Just use Adela’s template and I had some fun with cutting rectangle shapes & using a masking technique to create an old fashioned fireplace … the same one my parents still have!
