Holiday Blitz

Hi Stampers! We are having quite a winter storm here in Erie, PA, the heart of the snowbelt. Yeah!What better time to enjoy your family, home and stamp the day away. I plan to put a kettle of chili on later so we have a warm pot of soup to enjoy during stamping breaks. :)))

I will be posting a series of four Christmas cards over the next several days. All the cards are Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red (RHR) so they make for a nice gift set as well if you are looking for a hand-crafted hostess gift to give to the cook over the Thanksgiving holiday. Click on the photo to see a bigger picture and check out the detail.

This little ditty is stamped using the Holiday Blitz stamp set. I think this stamp set is so under the radar and it is just too bad since it is not only cute but practical as well. You can make so many fun cards using this 28 piece set and it is great for scrapbooking, making calendars or just adding a hand-stamped image to a note etc. Check it out here.

To make this card, start with a Kiwi Kiss card base and add layers of Whisper White and Riding Hood Red DSP. The band is a layer of Kiwi Kiss punched with the Scallop Edge Punch and topped with RHR strip of cardstock which has holes poked along both edges using the paper piercer from the Stampers Tool Kit and the Mat Pack. This adds texture to the card. The three images are stamped on Whisper White and punched out with the 1 inch Circle Punch and layered on circles of RHR and Kiwis Kiss punched using the 1-1/4 inch and 1-3/8 inch Circle Punches. I used Stampin' Dimensionals between the circles and added a gold brad to each circle just for a bit more holiday flash. The images were then mounted across a strip of Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon.

I hope you enjoy this card and please feel free to email me with questions at

Happy Stampin' and keep warm! EdieB
