Would you guess you could take a Christmas stamp set and make a baby card with it? Take a good look at your holiday stamp sets and see if you can get some other uses out of the stamps during the year before you put them away! For example, these Cookie Cutter Christmas bear baby cards are made with the bear in a Christmas stamp set and even with holiday or wintery designer paper. But if you don’t use the holiday patterns in the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack, there are plenty of generic patterns you can use at other times. While the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set is obviously for the holidays, once you notice the cute bear stamp, face, and ears, you can see that you can use that stamped image for other occasions!
These cards are square, 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″, with a Whisper White Thick Cardstock base. The designer papers are from the Warmth & Cheer Paper Stack. The bear is stamped on Whisper White and then the circle is cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Love these!! If you put them on your order now, even though they are backordered, you will be in line to get them sent to you as soon as they are available again. They have been so popular that Stampin’ Up! will have to turn the number off until they have sufficient supply again.
On the card on the left, I added a Flirty Flamingo scalloped circle layer die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I also added a strip of Flirty Flamingo 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon across the middle of the card. The greeting is from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set. I added two In Color Enamel Dots because I LOVE these little dots!
The baby card on the right is very similar. I added a strip of 1/8″ Gold Ribbon underneath the banner greeting. That greeting is from the Better Together Stamp Set. Once I looked at these two cards side by side I noticed the word “Congratulations” looks exactly the same even though they are two separate greetings from two different stamp sets! Hmmm!
So look at your stamp sets a little diffferently and see if you can get even more use out of them that they seem intended! This is very difficult for me until I see someone else’s idea!
