{PREVIEW} December 2016/January 2017 Stamp Club Set - SCRIBBLY SPLATTERY GRUNGE

Hey, STAMPlorations friends! It's time for the preview of the newest premium stamp club set: SCRIBBLY SPLATTERY GRUNGE. (Yep, I'm a girl who loves grunge and I can't seem to stop designing stamps with a grunge feel. They're fun to layer in ink.)

SCRIBBLY SPLATTERY GRUNGE is a 5" by 7" stamp set with 15 different stamps to help create faux texture and dimension in projects without the mess. You'll soon see the STAMPlorations girls feature Scribbly Splattery Grunge in their spotlight projects. But here's a card I made with these stamps. It's a pretty simple one layer card where I created a collage look by stamping the images in different colors of ink. To further create the grunge/distressed look, I lightly stamped on scrap before stamping on my card base. The grungy background nicely sets off the sentiment (from the previous stamp club set, Life in Full Color).

SCRIBBLY SPLATTERY GRUNGE will be available to non-stamp club subscribers starting December 12. Right now, it's available to current stamp club subscribers.

Want this stamp set now at a great price with a couple of ARTplorations stencils (or CUTplorations word/phrase die) of your choice and free shipping? Just sign up for the stamp club here. Stamp club subscribers get to enjoy lots of perks, including free shipping, free stamps and even free CUTplorations thin metal dies! :o)

On a budget? We've got three additional club plans: Gold Stamp Club Plan, Basic Stamp Club Plan, and Stencil Club Plan. All plans are bi-monthly, include personal discount codes, come with incentives for every 3rd time renewing, and get free worldwide shipping. There is a plan to suit a crafter's budget. For the complete info, check out the plans by clicking the graphic below.

If you're already a premium stamp club subscriber, thanks so much for your support! If your subscription is set to renew in the next week or so (or it has already renewed), you can pick Scribbly Splattery Grunge now.

Hope you're all having a wonderful week!

{Mixed Media Tutorial} Quick And Easy Paper Christmas Stockings That Sparkle And Shine

Hello Everyone! Today is my day to share some Christmas and Holiday Inspiration with you for my December mixed media tutorial here on the STAMPlorations blog! Now, if you are like me, even though I am SUPER busy this time of year, I still want to be able to make something personal and pretty and  sparkly for my table or my gifts, but also I need to be able to whip it off fast and if small hands can help, even better! So I am sharing these cute and glittery and QUICK paper Christmas stockings I created from a package of stocking-shaped cut outs I found at my LDS (local dollar store).

Is it really already the last month of 2016? Geez. Welcome to the December edition of the CUTplorations challenge! On the 5th of each month you'll find the inspiration DT playing with the wonderful line of CUTplorations dies. And we hope you'll join us for some die cutting fun! How? Use our inspiration photo and die cuts (any brand). Just be sure to use at least one STAMPlorations product on your project. Cards, tags, scrapbook pages, mixed media projects ... all are welcome. Don't have any STAMPlorations products yet? You can always find a free digi here to use.

What do you take away from that sweet image? The colors - oh how I love that color combo when the gallon/quart/pint rule is followed. The snow? The clothed animal image? Ready to see how the DT was inspired?
