Cookie Cutter Christmas

The Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and punch bundle is one of my favorite products in the 2016 Stampin’ Up holiday catalog.  From my first peek at the new catalog, this cute set was on my MUST HAVE list!   I love its versatility and the just plain irresistible images!

If you are like me, and want to add this set to your stamp collection then I have a class just for you.  Join me on October 4 for the Cookie Cutter Christmas Class.  Each participant will receive their own copy of the stamp set and coordinating punch.  We will be creating 3 projects with this set during the class.  Plus, I am going to be providing many other ideas for using this stamp set all year long.  Look at this CUTE Valentine card I created with this set…

Aren’t those eskimos just the cutest?!  I used markers to color them and added them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The tiny red heart is also punched from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  I used the Labeler Alphabet stamp set to add my greeting to the card.  Since it is a photopolymer set, it is easy to line up the letters so they are straight and I can create any sentiment I need.  It was perfect for this card!

Don’t miss out!  Tomorrow is the deadline to register for this class.   The class fee is $50 and includes the stamp set, the coordinating punch, and three projects made during the class. Contact me today if you are interested, or click here to sign up now.

Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Christmas

One final Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Christmas card to end our week.  Lots of glimmer for this one.  The Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015 stamp set has options when it comes to your Christmas cards and scrapbook pages.  It was fun creating this different card from the same stamp set.

The background was created by stamping the snowflake image multiple times in Smoky Slate.  I can see how fun and useful this will be for my winter scrapbook pages and I can hardly wait for a snow day to take advantage of them! 🙂  I paired the Smoky Slate with Real Red and added lots of bling.

I hope you have enjoyed the different cards from the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015 set that we have shared this week.  Remember, this set is available in the new Holiday Catalog, and for only $16 it is a good bargain for the variety you receive.  If you are interested in adding this stamp set to your collection, please let me know.  And if you don’t even have a stamp collection yet, this is a great set to start with because you can do so much with it!   Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Christmas

Today’s project is using the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Christmas images.  If you have been reading all week, you know this is the third card we’ve shared from this stamp set.  It’s a fun and versatile set that will be useful from September through December.  And it is certainly NOT just for scrapbooks, though it is perfect for that also.

I am loving the turquoise and red color combo. So much so, that I am using that color combination in my home and not just on my cards!  It is so cheerful and bright that I had to use it on this Christmas card.

I told you the other day that borders were super easy with this stamp set, because it is photopolymer and you can line it up without any problems as you stamp it.  This card uses the 2nd border image in the set and I did not re-ink my stamp before I stamped it the second time so that it has a faded look.  The words are also easy to line up and stamp straight because you can see exactly where you’re placing them as you stamp.  The same is true for the tree and the star on top.

I will admit that I was not overly zealous about photopolymer stamp sets when they were first released.  However, they have won me over and are now my favorite of the three types of stamps that Stampin’ Up! sells.  Maybe you are a die hard fan of the wood stamp sets or the clear mount.  I challenge you to give photopolymer a try and let me know what you think!
