July Sneaky Peek #3

Sketchy SantaIs it feeling a little colder today? It’s Day #3 of Sneaky Peek Week. And, today, we’re switching from Summer to Christmas. That’s right! It’s not too early to start thinking about those cards and treats that we do so love to do at Christmas time. Today, we are showcasing a couple of items, but I can’t help but focus in on these cute little guys in the NEW Sketchy Santas Stamp Set.

All the items peeked this week are available for purchase the day we peek it, but if you can hold on until July 30 you can get the whole collection of stamps & dies at a discount.


Nancy Thomas  uses traditional colors in this card, and it’s just so fresh with the Sketchy Santa sitting in the Square Stamp Die.  To tie everything together are the postage stamps from a classic stamp set, J*lly H*liday. I love the contemporary look of this card and the Green Holeless Sequins add so much shine.

Christine Okken

Christine Okken’s, card feels just so wintery I FEEL the chill. She uses the Sking Santa from the set poised on a hill. The background is our NEW Blizzard Stencil and she created it with the  Big Beautiful Blending Brush to create her pretty background. Finally, she adds a little sparkle with our NEW Clear Holographic Holeless Sequins.

Brenda NakandakariBrenda Nakandakari showcases two of the Sketchy Santas. (You get four in the set) If you have a cutting machine, we provide FREE cutting files for this stamp set  so that it makes fussy cutting a thing of the past. Also, on this card is our NEW Joyeux Noel CutUps Die. Designed as a “reverse” die, it makes insetting dies easy. I’ve had requests for a stamps or dies for our Canadian friends, and I’m happy to present this pretty die.

Kerry UrbatchKerry Urbatch creates this beauty with just the Joyeux Noel die. The words are cut out of a white slip of paper and the “Noel” words are attached to the side. Snowflakes are sprinkled about, as well as more of our NEW Clear Holographic Holeless Sequins. A friend of mine tells me that she thinks that because the sequins have no holes, they seem extra sparkly, especially in shaker cards. I think I have to agree.

Julee TilmanFinally, Julee Tilman creates this vintage card with this awesome set. You can see all the Santas that Julee colored dancing about. What really draws the eye is the banner from the NEW Joyeux Noel CutUps. It cuts the banner and the end scrolls are cut as outlines and insets. You can choose to replace the insets or leave the ends as is as shown here.  They really look quite delicate and show off the beautiful paper below.

I’m loving these cards, but there’s more. Check out the blogs below for more and don’t forget to comment. You could win a $10 gift voucher. We’ll pick a winner each day this week from the comments on the blogs and post the winners here and on our Facebook page.
