Instant gratification -- that's what you get when you create handmade tags!  Virginia Lu's set of Halloween tags surely makes a sweet statement when tied around a special candy-filled treat!  In this original blog post there are tons of fabulous ideas for making your next Halloween party Frightfully Delightful!  This set is loaded with pint-sized creatures, sentiments and more


Val Stangle captured the essence of Friendly Folk in her basket full of tags from this original blog post.  Old fashioned and sentimental, having these tags made ahead add nothing but charm to a hostess gift or homemade goody.

Die Cuts

(ETA 3/28/14: Price Change!)


Fresh Squeezed Stamps is closing! Read our announcement HERE.


We have only TWO stamp set designs left - A Wee Christmas and (ETA: sold out!) Friendly Folk.  


Die cut shapes are all the rage, and Maureen Merritt's card used them elegantly in this sweet creation from this original blog post.  Maureen used our Mother Knows Best and Friendly Folk sets on this card, which obviously makes the cut with anyone lucky enough to get this for Mother's Day or any day!




Sarah Gough also used Mother Knows Best with die cut shapes to create another rockin' card for Grandma!  Not only are the shapes cut, but they're also embossed.

Chalkboard


Fresh Squeezed Stamps is closing! Read our announcement HERE.

Another favorite technique has got to be the chalkboard effect.  We paper crafters grabbed onto this technique as the style's popularity rose and Katie Gehring hit the mark in this original blog post by using our sets Love Signs and When Hearts Collide.  Pink and black are always a great color combo, but when she adds a little "chalk dust", she's increased the wow factor ten fold!



In this original blog post by Kim Singdahlsen, she shows how black and white can truly be stunning!  That friendly walrus from Arctic Friends is just sweet-as-can-be heat embossed in white, with eye catching aqua twine and base layer. Chalk it up to Kim's artistic flair to add sequins, a snowflake and a dusting of snow, too!

Heat Embossing


Fresh Squeezed Stamps is closing! Read our announcement HERE.


Heat embossing really adds impact to paper crafting and Heather Pulvirenti made short work of this fabulous tag in this original blog post using some awesome FSS sets: Holiday Tag Alongs and Background Check.  The tangled lights and ornament image is set off by heat embossing in white onto bright green card stock, then adding a touch of glitter.  There are four different tag images in Holiday Tag Alongs.



This little beauty by Erin Taylor is truly Frightfully Delightful!  She's staged lots of fun elements from this set into a picture perfect frame, then made the sentiment *POP* by heat embossing it in white onto the black frame -- striking!  This card and many others are featured in this original blog post, where you'll find LOTS of inspiration for using this multi-styled Halloween set.


We have VERY low inventory levels for the following stamp sets, so if you're on the fence about any of these, don't wait too much longer.  All sets are now $6.00 each, so when they're gone, they're gone!!

Sequins


Fresh Squeezed Stamps is closing! Read our announcement HERE.

Erin Taylor cleverly made short work of decorating this adorable tree from the A Wee Christmas set in this original blog post.  Those colorful ornaments are simply sequins, the quintessential addition to this precious card.  A Wee Christmas features fantastic fonts for the sentiments and lots of fun, buildable parts for wee elfin creatures.  Can you spot how Erin used the "stocking legs" in a very unique way?




Leigh Penner decided to shake it up in this original blog post using Life of the Party and loads of colorful, shiny sequins to create this shaker card!  How clever is that?  This set has so many party-time elements perfect for handmade invitations or post-party thank you notes.


We have VERY low inventory levels for the following stamp sets, so if you're on the fence about any of these, don't wait too much longer.  All sets are now $6.00 each, so when they're gone, they're gone!!
