Bring some heat to your holiday crafting with this beach-ready Santa! You will have so much fun mixing and matching the included elements to craft sunny scenes with a Christmas twist. Add a towering stack of gifts to the top of the van or piled under a Christmas palm. A surfboard, Santa-capped flamingo, and beachball complete the scene. The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our Die-namics lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

This punny phrase will add some welcome humor to your Christmas crafting. The fanciful font choices provide playfulness — just what you need to complement the wonderfully quirky Elfin’ Around Die-namics in creating quick and easy cards that will bring easy smiles to the faces of your lucky recipients.


For a quick and whimsical look that immediately conjures the hustle and bustle of hardworking elves in Santa’s workshop, look no further than the Elfin’ Around Die-namics. This three-piece set makes it easy to create a dimensional elf hat for your cards. Pair with the Merry Elfin’ Christmas stamp set to create jolly cards in minutes!

Our Sassy Pants line features a feisty collection of playful greetings that are just right for celebrating those friends that appreciate the cheekier side of life. This follow up to last year’s hilariously jolly set includes even more options for getting through the sometimes-hectic holiday season with humor (and the occasional holiday spirit 😉.)

This mix of sentiments and greetings is a must for customizing gift packaging and tags this holiday. While they can be used for a variety of applications and paired with items you already have, they’re designed specifically to fit the Gift Tag Die-namics perfectly. Larger greetings can be used to adorn the base of the tag while smaller lines will accentuate the layering sentiment strips to further dress up an already present-pleasing design.

This multi-layer tag coordinates with the Christmas Tag Talk stamp set and includes several sentiment strips that can be layered over the main tag to add pizazz. The die includes an optional stitched topper, as well as two edge design strips to provide for a variety of mix-and-match looks.

While this generously sized sentiment is all you need to quickly create eye-catching holiday greetings, we’ve included a handful of unique accents to step up your look even more. We’ve replaced one letter in every word with a seasonal icon and incorporated a coordinating element for each one to make it truly special. Stack multiple layers together to create multicolored accents.

This die cut doubles as a design element and sentiment all in one to make it the star of the show on your card. The hand-lettered look of the greeting is unique and joyful — perfect for spreading the excitement and happiness of the holiday season.

The cool and trendy look of the Peace, Love, and Joy Stencil will add so much personality to your holiday greetings! Each word has been stylized with an alternate design replacing one of the letters to bring Christmas to your cards in iconic fashion. This trio of repeating words represents our hopes for the season — may we all experience them in abundance!
