2009 Holiday Mini Catalog

This weekend I had the opportunity to play around with new stamps! You'll notice these next two projects look somewhat familiar to previous posts because they use the same colors and layouts. Just goes to show that you CAN make different cards with limited resources!

The card is a 3"x3" card and the stamp set is Cold & Cuddly from the new 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog. (You can order from it through January 4, 2010.) The seal's hat was cut out and "popped-up" using Stampin' Dimensionals.

This card is one of my favorites. I love the color combination and these little penguins are simply adorable stacked like this. The same stamp set (Cold & Cuddly) was used here too. The card was super simple, but took a little time to line up each penguin with the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Again, you'll note that this card is very similar to a previous post.

This last project also uses the Cold & Cuddly stamp set. It also uses the snowflake image from the Christmas Punch Level 2 hostess set which is designed to be punched out using the Boho Blossoms punch. The colors used are Night of Navy, Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue. It's a small packet to hold a tea bag inside the small cellophane bag that's inside. The bear image was stamped first and then masked over before stamping the iceberg image.

A simple stamping technique that gives "wow" results. I'd be glad to show you how to do it!
