Stampin' Addicts New 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! Catalog Blog Hop


Welcome Stampin' Friends!  I hope you enjoy this Stampin' Addicts hop featuring all new stamp sets!  We have 18 stops for you to peruse as you add to your new catty wish lists!  If you've been following the hop in order, you've enjoyed Trina's cute creations with the Many Mustaches set. (How Cute that her blog is called Stamps and Whiskers too-even though the name is in relation to her cats!) If not, keep hopping and you'll reach it, or if you are lost, go to the chat thread on Stampin' Addicts to find your way.

There's also a huge 5th Saturday Stamp Jam going on over at Stampin' Addicts in conjenction with this Blog Hop. Feel free to check it out and join in the fun!

I'm featuring the Polar Party set....Yes, it is a long time until Christmas, but I just couldn't wait to take the plunge with these record breaking temperatures in Oklahoma this year!

First, I have this Candy Bar Holder...A regular size Hershey Bar fits inside, and I used the cute new Letters to Santa blue plaid designer series paper for the tabs.  Just some stamping and coloring of the set...(I can't wait to Dazzling Details glitter glue in the Upcoming Holiday Mini for snow, but I used the Smooch Accent ink to add shimmer in this example.)  On the little tree, our Cherry Cobber Twine made a perfect little accent rope and tied in a little more red.  I think the peppermint candy makes a surprising addition and adds more Candyland style interest under the candy cane (also a stamp in this set) cut out.

Next is this tiny gift tag....My penguin-loving daughter thinks it might make a better tree ornament...Either way-I'm glad she likes it. The picture makes it look a little flat, but the Four Frames border is popped up on dimensionals (edges so they will be narrow enough), and the little penguin is walking out of the frame. His banner is just a toothpick cut easily with our craft and rubber scissors with "Merry" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes on it with a Basic Rhinestone.


Finally, I have this Wiper Card using Black White and Pool Party with Island Indigo (Antarctica is an island after all ;)) and Pear Pizzazz....


The little penguin lifting his foot is perfect for the wiper portion I think....and I'll never tire of SU!'s super-faceted and shiny rhinestones!

Now, it is time to Hippity Hop to Sara's Lily's Ink Pad blog to see her fun creations with the Easy Events set....

These are too cute, Rhonda! And one of the two candy bar treat holders you gave me at convention still survives! Your last sample gave me an idea for a panorama card, too!

Super cute projects Rhonda!! Love those lil penguins. Great idea to put the starlight mint candy on the pull tab and put the lil candy cane on it!

Holly / InkPaperStamps said...

Thanks for the refreshing blast of winter, Rhonda--we can really use it here too!

Your penguin ornament is way too cute; looks like he's jumping off the tag! I also love how you've used you ribbons and twine in so many ways. . . .
