Welcome everyone! I’m thrilled to be sharing some inspiration using the new Holiday Seals stamp set. This is a collaborative set from The Stamping Village which includes images from 12 different companies.
These are designed as seals that you can stamp on your holiday envelopes but I think they look amazing on cards as well which is what I’m sharing with you today.
My card is featuring the seal from Altenew. I stamped the image in embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I colored the image with Prisma Colored Pencils.
I used a circle die set from my stash to cut out he image in a perfect circle.
For my card front, I ink blended Heart Beat ink onto Kraft card stock using the Beach Towel Stripes stencil from Altenew. I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and attached to a white card base with craft foam.
To add a little sparkle, I went over the stripes with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen and once dry, I attached my seal with foam squares.
This is such a beautiful set with designs from some of my favorite companies!

I have two cards to share today featuring the Build-A-Flower Bellflower. This image looks amazing in any color but I am head over heels for it in blue! I stamped my layers in Sapphire, Pursian Blue, Caribbean Sky and Arctic inks. The stem is stamped in Firefly and Green Field inks.
For my background, I ink blended using the same colors that I stamped the flower image in. I used Neenah Solar white 80 lb card stock and a lift changing blender brush for the blending. I applied very light pressure of the colors working from darkest to lightest, bottom to top. This is such beautiful ombre effect.
I then squished my Sapphire ink pad onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and flicked the mixture onto my background with a paintbrush. Once that was dry, I spritzed my background with Iridescent Shimmer Spray.
After my background was completely dry, I stamped my sentiment from the Fancy Greetings stamp set using the Obsidian Ink. Then added my die cut images with tape runner and foam squares.
For my next card, I stamped the Bellflower in Cosmic Berry, Purple Wine, Puffy Heart and Rose Quartz inks.
I stenciled on my background using the Classy Stripes stencil with Pure Graphite ink. I kept a very light hand and had it fade off the edges. I then added my stenciled background to a notecard I created from Fog card stock.
My sentiment was die cut 3 times from Stormy Sky card stock using the Simply Friend die. I layered them together with liquid glue for dimension.
I like this bright pop of color on the light gray background. Really makes those flowers stand out.

My first card is featuring the Beach Towel Stripe Stencil. I lightly ink blended the background with Silver Stone ink. I trimmed the panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and added to a card base made from Stormy Sky card stock from Gina K Designs.
I have another card using the Bubble Wrap stencil. This time I stenciled it on using a rainbow of colors from Altenew!
I cleaned off my stencil, realigned it on my card front and then stamped Clear Embossing Ink over the stencil. I removed the stencil, and then added some Sparkle Embossing powder and heat embossed.
I finished off this card by adding the word Friend die cut from black card stock and a sentiment stamped from the Bright Blossoms stamp set.
I have a very clean and simple design using the Buffalo Plain Builder. This is a really neat layering stencil but I decided to mask off one area of the stencil and use that for a design. Of course I stenciled it in rainbow colors.
Once again, I used the Bright Blossoms stamp set for a sentiment, stamped in Obsidian Black ink.
Next up is the Diamond Builder Stencil. These stencils are lots of fun. Flip your stencil to create unique designs!
I stamped my design in the Rose Petal Ink Collection. I stamped a sentiment from the Fancy Greetings set and then trimmed my panel down and added to a white card base with craft foam.
The Color Block Hearts stencil is another fun one where you flip the stencil to create hearts all over your background!
I stenciled a panel and cut out with a heart shape to add to a panel of Tangerine Twist card stock. The cute little sentiment is again from the Bright Blooms stamp set.
My last set of cards is featuring the Wonderful Wreath stencil. I created this design by ink blending in rainbow colors and then shifting the stencil to offset it and stencil in those same colors again.
How awesome does this look in rainbow colors?! I stamped a sentiment from the Japanese Mum stamp set in the center of the card. I then added some berries with Nuvo drops.
My last card I stenciled the Wonderful Wreath in traditional colors. These would make great Christmas cards but I love having Thank You cards on hand so I stamped another sentiment from the Japenese Mum stamp set.
I once again added berries using Nuvo Drops.
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! There are more stencils being release and I’ll list then all below. If you follow me, you know I love stencils and plan on working with these some more in a video.

I have a quick video showing how I customized my laptop with these beautiful decals. You can view it down below or HERE on my Youtube Channel.
Today I’m working with the Amour Small set for my laptop. I actually ordered a new laptop case in black for my Mac because I knew it would look amazing with the decals. I cut all of the images out of the sheets and lined then up on my case so I had an idea where they would go before adhering them down.
The decals are already lined with an adhesive backing so just peel and stick to your items.
The small set which is what I worked with here measures 10″ x 5″ and there were so many on this sheet I didn’t even use them all.
I love how this dresses up my laptop cover.
Next, I played with the Amour Medium decals. These come on a 25.5″ x 12″ sheet. I had recently set up a Brimnes Unit from Ikea in my craft area and knew this would be a perfect way to decorate it.
Here I’m showing how I applied the decals to my drawers.
It honestly was really hard to get pictures of the entire unit because I work in my kitchen so my space is a little cramped.
I have 3 drawers and was able to get these on each drawer and a few images left over.
Altenew also carries larger ones which would be amazing to decorate your craft room or any other room in your house. If I had the wall space, I would absolutely have done it. There are also phrases you can purchase as well. I cannot wait to see what everyone else has done with the new decals!
