Stampin' Addicts Winter Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Winter / Holiday Blog Hop.  We are so happy that you have decided to join us for this fun hop featuring stamp sets and products from the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini.  There are 6 stops on this hop so if you have been following the hop in order then you have just arrived from Sara's Blog where she featured the stamp set "Christmas Pines". She did such a beautiful job, didn't she?  I can't wait to CAS some of them.  Now if you have just started the hop here at my blog be sure and hop all the way around till you come back to mine so you don't miss any of the great craftiness of my friends.  Now on to my projects.  I chose to showcase the stamp set "Cookie Cutter Christmas" which just happens to have a matching punch called "Cookie Cutter Builder Punch" and if you buy the 2 products as a bundle you save 10%!  I love it when I can save money.  So let's get started.
This was such a fun set to work and having a matching punch made for fun & quick craftiness.
For my first project I made a quick and easy card using the reindeer stamp and cookie cutter punch.  The card base is Crumb Cake as is the reindeer.  I used Early Espresso Classic Ink.  The Merry Christmas Saying is from the stamp set "Greetings From Santa".  I use some of the Candy Cane Lane DSP to add some cheery layers to my card.
Project #2 was actually the first project I did.  I had this in my mind for awhile now.  I found some cute little red mittens at Joann Fabric and knew I wanted to use them for something.  I came up with a magnetic Tic Tac Toe tin.  I used the Santa and Reindeer stamps for this fun project.  I again chose to use some of the Candy Cane Lane DSP for the background.  The tin actually opens up and after you put your game pieces in the mittens you can keep them in the tin until you are ready to play again.  I think my triplet grandsons will have fun with this game tin.
This last fun little project was actually a fun project I found on pinterest.   Lou Kitzleman had made a reindeer and used a cork for it's body.  I found these cute little Rolos in a mixed bag of candy and thought they would be perfect!  For the body of the reindeer I punched out 2 more of the cookie cutter punched images the cut off the ears.  I then used the Early Espresso Stamp'in Write Marker to add hooves and outline to his legs.  
Thank you for stoping by to look at my projects.  I hope you can find some inspiration from them and make them your own.  Now it's time to hop on over to Yapha's Blog and see the super fun projects she has made using the stamp set "Fa-la-la-la Friends".  Have a great day everyone!
