STAMPtember Exclusive - Fabulous Holiday


I hope everyone is doing great! 

If you are a crafter, you might have heard about an annual 'Stamptember' event that Simon Says Stamp have been having every month of September for the last 13 years. They collaborate with many different companies and release exclusive products which are avialable for purchase only while suuplies last. These products will never be released again once they sell out. 

This year La-La Land Crafts and Simon Says Stamp in collaboration released a very cute stamp set with adorable ostriches and I am excited to share a couple cards which I made with the stamps. The set is called "Fabulous Holiday" and it is so cute!

You can either get a stamp set only or have a stamp and outline die set. If you are interested, please act fast as these are only available while supplies last and they usually do not last long :) 

You can have a look at other crafters' cards with this set in the post over the La-La Land Crafts blog here.

The ostriches were colored with Copics:
Head, Neck, Legs – W5, RV34, R22, R02, R01
Darker Grey – T9, T7, T5
Lighter Grey – C6, C4, C2 + W5
Reds: T6, E09, E07, R17
Greens: YG97, YG95, YG93, YG21
Yellows: E37, YR24, Y35
Book and Hats Trim: W5, W1

I hope you have fun crafting and thanks for stopping by!

More Tags With Craspire Wax Seals and Free Printables


I love playing with wax seals and incorporate them in the ephemera pieces that I create for my journals.
 Today I am stopping by to share with you a few tags that I have recently completed:

Below you can find the links to the Craspire products that I used:
Pine Cones Wax Seal 

Besides the woodland themed tags with the squirrels, there are also a couple tags with the ants. Both of the themes were chosen by me to match the images on the wax seals - the pine cones and the turing (coral) pattern, which reminded me of the antpile pathways.

I have used printables which I have created on my own and I and happy to offer two freebies for you, too, if you'd like to create the tags like mine.

In addition, there is a full "Woodland Tags" kit available in my Etsy store, which I have recently opened. I hope you like the beautiful vintage style images of this kit:

I am sure that I will create lots of tags in different variations! Here are some examples:

Back to the freebies, you can download them below. Please DO NOT share them on Pinterest or anywhere else directly. I would really appreciate if you could add a link to this blog post of mine if you do create pins. Thank you! I hope you enjoy using the printables and maybe even share your the pictures of your tags with me.

I appreciate your stopping by and hope you have a wonderful crafty weekend!
