Magenta_badge Welcome to a week of fantastic collaboration between IMAGINE Crafts and Magenta Rubber Stamps! Both companies are excited to share with you their products, from the latest inks from IMAGINE Crafts to the newest Fall and Holiday stamp releases from Magenta.

Joyeux Noel

This is my first holiday design of 2014! No doubt there will be more.

  • Magenta Rubber Stamps ‘branches’ and ‘joyeux noel’ stamps
  • Miscellaneous: small hole punch; silver string; white card stock; shiny red paper


Step 1 – cut a 4″ x 5.25″ card and stamp branches with Luxe Northern Pine and edge with Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy. Spray with Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz.


Step 2 – stamp ‘joyeux noel’ on scrap of paper with Pearlescent Poppy and clear emboss, cut down to size and edge with Pearlescent Poppy.

Joyeux Noel Branches

Step 3 – Punch small circles from shiny red paper and adhere to various ‘berries’ on card. Center ‘joyeux noel’ on card and adhere with dimensional tape.  Add silver string and adhere edges to back side of card. Layer front card with red paper, then adhere to card. You could also add some shiny embellishments to add a bit more ‘frost’.

What? Up-cycled Challenge?

What does that even mean?

The challenge is to take non-traditional supplies and create something with the IMAGINE Crafts products – I think this may inspire a new jewelry line!

The sun is out, it is in the 80s and finally Summer in Seattle!

I recently found this new stamp set from A.Muse Studio and loved it – one of my niece’s name begins with a B and I’ve always used it as a nickname for her.

‘Bee’, this one’s for you!
