Re-Introducing… Background Builders: Christmas AND Jolly Christmas

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.

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE at the start of the hop. I have shared a couple of new cards there using these 2 re-released clear stamp sets.

I’ve made a couple more cards to hopefully inspire you…


Firstly I wanted to pair the snowflake builder stamp with the Designer Dies Snowflake Trio. I tried my hand at some partial die cutting too!


After stamping the snowflake background I added tiny drops of Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard to all the snowflake centres for a little bit of subtle sparkle. The sentiment is a new one from another clear stamp set we will be introducing later this week. The pearls are from Little Things By Lucy’s Crystal Collection – Sweet Pea.


I was having so much fun getting reacquainted with Background Builders: Christmas, that I used it for my second card to share with you today too!


Even though I absolutely LOVE snowflakes, I think the 2 step stamp holly in this set trumps the snowflakes! It is beautifully festive and pairs with other Uniko clear stamps, such as this sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments #4.


After a busy few weeks I was feeling a little tired and ‘meh’ so I treated myself to some more Altenew inks and this little ‘Lil Inker Bow Die. It is too darn cute and pairing it with some old Papertrey Ink polka dot paper was the perfect finish to this clean and simple card.

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 😉

I hope you enjoyed the hop & will come back tomorrow for the next product introductions!

    WOW! Love the partial die-cut snowflake paired with the ‘flurry’ of flakes! And your holly border card is simply stunning! The polka dot bow/strip adds such impact!

    OMG! That half cut snowflake die in turquoise and white! I am swooning like crazy over that one in particular. So simple and classy and super effective. Equally inspirational is the traditional coloured combo … I always forget about that All Occasion Xmas sentiment set – it doesn’t need much to make it POP … will have to use it more. Fab ideas as ever x
