Floral Spray Stamp & Dies
If you love nothing more than decking the halls with boughs of holly, and weaving stunning wreaths to hang on the front door - then you're in luck! With the Floral Spray Stamp & Die sets you can garland your Christmas cards with all the joy and colour of the season!
From perfect poinsettia, and shimmering silver bells to the golden glimmer of candlelight this range has a whole host of beautifully illustrated designs so you can add that extra something special to your Christmas cards and crafts!
Everything in the Floral Spray Stamp & Die collection has been sized to work perfectly with 4” x 6” card bases and comes with cheerful and traditional sentiment stamps - perfect for beginner and novice card makers.
And, for more experienced crafters, because the outside cutting frame of the dies in this collection is in two halves, you can experiment with a variety of effects with each set!
- Cut on the left of the stamped image to cut away the left side
- Cut on the right of the stamped image to cut away the right side
- Cut out the entire design using both of the dies, to create a decorative topper
There are six beautiful designs to choose from in the Floral Spray Stamp & Die collection:
- Gemini Stamp & Die - Ring Out Those Bells
- Gemini Stamp & Die - Winter Blessings
- Gemini Stamp & Die - Festive Poinsettia
- Gemini Stamp & Die - Christmas Bow

Sweet messages that spread festive cheer are what Christmas cards are all about - and with the Crafter's Companion Brush Lettering Stamps you can add some serious style to your sentiments!
Each set in this range includes two stamps to create a sentiment or message, with one word in a bold and large typeface style and the rest of the message in beautifully subtle and on-trend brush lettering.
Sized to work perfectly with 6" x 4" card bases, it really couldn't be easier to make your Christmas cards the star of the show this year! Here are the Christmas sentiments you can choose from with the Crafter's Companion Brush Lettering Stamps:
