Season of Sweets


If you are anything like me holidays are always surrounded by sweets. Christmas is baklava, New Years is Cream Cheese balls filled with chips of chocolate, candy and nuts, Valentine’s is Whitman’s samplers, Easter is Cadbury Cream Eggs, Summer holidays are Cannoli Dip at the campground and lots of scoops of ice cream, then it’s on to birthday cake, Halloween candy and pecan pie for Thanksgiving! Let’s not forget 3 o’clock chocolate time at work. Woo I think I gained 20 lbs just writing it all down.

Celebrate your sweet season with a calorie free card that you can whip up in a flash using a Stampartus!

Cut a sheet of Real Red cardstock at the 5 1/2 inch mark along the long side of the paper using a personal trimmer. Fold in half and crease with a bone folder. Next cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Using your Stamparatus stamp the large Candy Cane image from the Candy Cane Season Stamp set using the repeat stamping technique. moving the plate down 1 hinge for each stamp. I started with the outline then the stripes but either way works. To position the stripes I stamped the outline 1st then laid the stripes in position on the outline and picked the stamp up with the Stamparatus plate. Much like we did with the block in this video. Easy peasy two step stamping.

*Technique Alert: Repeat Stamping.  Ink your image once. Stamp each subsequent image WITHOUT reinking. The ink will be visible for at least 4 stampings maybe more.

Stamp the sentiment and if you choose color the 1st candy cane’s red stripes with Wink of Stella for some extra pop. #simplestamping
