Catherine’s Color Combo #10: A Cute Christmas Stamp Set meets Jolly Old St. Nick Stamp Set

Catherine Christmas, Projects


Welcome to this week's Color combo #10!!  (Did you notice that I skipped this feature last week?  Sorry about that!)

I was stamping the snowman from the Jolly Old St. Nick Stamp set onto my white cardstock and when I was done coloring him in, I thought it looked pretty naked.   I glanced at my stash of stamps and noticed  A Cute Christmas and thought the trees from that set would be a perfect background for the sweet little snowman.  Woot!

Both stamp sets I used today are from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Let me know if you need a copy!  Click here to see it online.

Notice anything else about my card for today?  If you have been following my blog, you know my first craft was sewing.  My mother taught me at a very early age.  Once I picked up a stamp, I have barely touched the sewing machine. 

Well, my 11 year old daughter has been getting lessons from my mom, and mom even bought her a Hello Kitty Sewing Machine!



The other night, Anna got the machine out and started making a sock elephant.  Well, when it was time for bed, guess what happened the the sewing machine.  You guessed it…nothing!  It stayed right on my stamping table.  I moved it to underneath the table…but that sucker was calling me! 

So today, I pushed the Toshiba out of the way and had some fun with Hello Kitty!  My very first stitched card.  You WILL be seeing more!
