Christmas Stampin' Sampler No. 2



Do you know what these little squares look like in real life?  Little shortbread cookies.  I just want to eat them!  This is one of my favorite projects ever in the 14 years that I've been a demonstrator.  Funny how something so little and simple can bring so much joy!  It's all Very Vanilla card stock and Crumb Cake ink.  I used the 1-3/8" Square Punch, the Postage Stamp Punch, and the Merry Minis Punch Pack with the Merry Minis stamp set!  This is all I needed to get in the mood for Christmas, so bring on the merry now!  I'M READY!

I have to agree with the previous comment, the samplers are wonderfull! I would love to make a few of my own and have a few questions if you don't mind my asking. What knd of frames do you use? Do you leave the galss front off or is the sampler thin enough to fit under the glass?

Hello! Thank you for your kind words. When I frame my samplers, I leave the glass out. With all the 3D elements on the sampler, it wouldn't fit behind a piece of glass. What I do in some cases is leave the glass behind the sampler to provide a sturdy backing! Have fun making a sampler - they are terribly addicting!
