I’m working with the Home For The Holidays StampTV Kit today. Holy cow what a great set of products. They put together a great mix of cute and realistic stamps, dies to match and both patterned paper and cardstock. Fun for all your winter and holiday cards! You can purchase this kit HERE.

Home for the Holidays StampTV Kit

I used my Mini MISTI to set up my stamps on my die cut shapes (the red cardstock is my template) For the mittens I cut a full image on white cardstock, placed the cut out into my template and then stamped. I then cut out mittens from patterned paper and put it in my template and stamped. I cut the mittens out (with scissors) and then layered on top of the white cut out. Easy peasy way to do paper piecing.

Creating with Clearsnap Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Creating Clearsnap Blog Hop!

Tami Mayberry will be giving away a stamp/ink package to one lucky winner who comments along the hop!

I was thrilled when CPS teamed up with Clearsnap! I’ve been a Clearsnap ink fan for a very long time and they are my go to company for inks. My favorites are the Colorbox Premium Dye Inks (love the spongy pad and how perfectly it works with solid images and clear stamps), the Colorbox Fluid Chalk inks (such great coverage and a beautiful soft image every time) and the Mix’d Media Inxs that have such fun Vintagy (is that a word?) colors and are fabulous for sponging.

Make sure and take a look at the Clearsnap Blog for some pretty projects and great tips on how to use inks.

Here is my card made with fun stamps from Tami Mayberry. You can see all of Tami’s stamp designs HERE.
