Re-Introducing... Background Builders: Christmas AND Jolly Christmas


Welcome to the first day of the October 2018 Release product introductions.

This is the fun part, you now get to see all the sneak peeks in action. The Design Team have worked their socks off and created an abundance of inspiration to share with you over the coming days :)

Today we are re-introducing Background Builders: Christmas AND Jolly Christmas clear stamp sets. These two clear stamp sets were first introduced WAY back in October 2013 HERE and HERE. You can also find more 'old' inspiration using the clear stamps HERE and HERE on Pinterest.

How about a fresh look at what these stamp sets offer in their creativity potential...

First up a colourful card using 6 out of the 8 building strips from Background Builders: Christmas. I simply repeat stamped the strips on white card to create a pattern and then die cut stitched squares to create a quilt style design. The sentiment is from Simply Said Christmas.

There are a few fun features to this building set and one of my faves is the two step stamping holly strip :) I also LOVE adding glitter to the outline tree centres! 

Next up we have Jolly Christmas and I have used my favourite image from the clear stamp set for both these cards...

The card on the left I shared HERE for my CAS Colours & Sketches DT card, so you can find all the details about it there. 

For the card on the right I created a background using Uniko Stencil Scattered Polka Hexagons and sparkly paste. I coloured and fussy cut Jolly Santa out applying glitter to the brim of his hat and the cuffs on his coat. The sentiment is from Most Wonderful.

As usual my AWESOME Design Team have created projects to share with you all too. Be sure to hop along, commenting along the way. You never know, I might just pick some random comments to WIN some prizes this release ;)

WOW! That was an inspirational hop, so many new ideas of how to use these re-released clear stamp sets. I hope you enjoyed the hop & will come back tomorrow for the next product introductions. 



  1. Beautiful release. The BG builder looks so promising

  2. Loved the hop today, so much fabulous inspiration and I'm certain those background builder stamps will be a sell out - luckily I've already got them and the DT have given me some great ideas, thanks xx

  3. How clever to use the border set for 'quilt' blocks! So pretty! As for Santa: charming x two!

  4. Great products and great use of them -= of course! I really like the quilt/four square design. :) Loopyloo

  5. Fun idea with the 4 squares and nice to see non traditional Xmas colours too! Love Mr Jolly Santa - he’s sure to be a big hit! Xx
