Christmas Stamps - Altenew, Right at Home + Simon Says Stamp | Monday Favorites

Hiya! Welcome back! I'm popping in quickly (even though it's not Monday) with a share of some of the wonderful gifts Santa brought this year. We all know Christmas is about so much more than gifts, but it sure doesn't hurt when pretty stamps are under the tree :)

I'm only sharing a few of my favorites, but among them I have unwrapped a pile of all kinds of coloring mediums (something I plan to get more into in 2019), so I will be sure to be feature those more in the weeks to come.

But for now, I want to share these faves!! 

First up is the gorgeous, and super-delicate Handpicked Bouquet by Altenew! I love this stamp + die set so much!! My mind is whirling with all the pretty things I want to make with it. 

Next up, I have to admit I have a wee fangirl crush on Right at Home stamps, and I am so excited to be adding this darling cutie to my collection! It's a first in my stash from RAH, but I'm positive it won't be the  last. Yesterday I posted a card I made with this set and a fun how-to featuring a mix of no-line and lined coloring for a super soft look - you can see it here.

I'm also super excited about this Simon Says Stamp Heart Mandala stencil! I know it's a little hard to see, you can get a better idea here. Isn't it so lovely??! It's making an appearance in many of my upcoming cards, so stay tuned! 

Last but not least, I fell in love with this SSS Center Cut Heart Background stamp some time ago, and I'm thrilled that Santa heard :) I can't wait to share what I've made with you. Be sure to check back over the next week to see!

Did Santa bring any papercrafting supplies your way this year? What else usually tops your list of gifts (both material and non)? 
Aside from all the goodies, I am most thankful for the downtime and quaint days spent with family. It fills my heart up to the brim! 

Thanks for the visit, Friends!
Do you have/plan to get any of these pretties? We'd love to see what you create!

  1. What a cool family picture--beautiful setting! Looking forward to the magic you'll make with your new goodies, Ivana! The only one I have is the stencil & I need your inspiration to use it more!

    1. Aw thanks so much, Greta! We were lucky to have been able to snap a shot - most years the Holidays are so hectic, it just never happens! This year we also had beautiful frost, so I guess it was meant to be :)
