Happy Holidays Blog Hop - Cold & Cuddly

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts Happy Holidays blog hop. The Happy Holidays blog Hop will feature sneak peaks of the different stamp sets and accessories the Holiday Mini Catalog has to offer. There are 40 jam packed pages of the Holiday Mini Catalog that will fit any of your holidays needs!

If you have been following the blog hop in order you've just seen Kim's wonderful creation's at Stitchin' N Stampin' on Paper featuring Wondering Words.

Here on Stamping Addiction I will be showcasing the ever so cute Cold & Cuddly Stamp set! This stamp set is fun to use and surprisingly versatile.

My first project is a great way to help spruce up your gift card giving needs!


The pouch can be used for other small objects, such as candy, money, jewelry, hot cocoa, tickets, subscriptions and much more.

Recipe: Stamp Set - Cold & Cuddly; Ink - Bashful Blue and Silver ; Cardstock - Going Gray, Whisper White, and Apricot Appeal; Accessories - Silver Cord, Dimensionals, Bashful Blue 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon, Iridescent Ice, Silver Embossing Powder, Paper Piercing Tool, and Silver Brads.

Next I have a neat way you can make something fun for young children to help keep them occupied on their holiday break.

My little one loves to play tic tac toe and what a fun way to add a little splash to this classic game and that can be used over and over again! I added a small cello bag to the back of this 6x6 page to keep the game pieces all together.

Recipe: Stamp Set - Cold & Cuddly; Ink - Soft Suede and Bashful Blue; Cardstock - Whisper White.

My last creation is perfect for all those small gift packaging needs.

This was originally going to something completely different but I'm glad for what it turned into. I decide to put the cocoa and marshmallows inside the box because I altered the saying to say "Here's to keep you warm". It would be a fun way to package a hat and scarf set or any other ideas you can come up with. I have a tutorial that I will share with you next week just make sure to bookmark or subscribe to my site so you don't miss out!

Recipe: Stamp Set - Cold & Cuddly; Ink - Sahara Sand and Bashful Blue; Cardstock - Bashful Blue and Whisper White ; Accessories - Real Red Marker, Basic Black Marker, Iridescent Ice, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals, 5/8" Satin Ribbon, and Christmas Cocoa SDSP.

My DD loved your tic-tac-toe game so much that she immediately wanted to make her own. We've got the elements stamped, now I just need to cut them out, find some magnet sheets and we are good to go. TFS! Love what you've done with this set.

Carmen, I have been drawn to this set from the moment I got the mini, but have been at a total loss as to what to do with it. Your projects have definitely put this set back on the "to seriously consider" list! That tic-tac-toe game is darling.

Hi Carmen,
Thanks for sharing the polar fun! I was so sure those penguins were in a conga line that I didn't realize they were game pieces until I read the text! Either way it works for me.

Now if only I could reach through the screen and grab the cocoa!

Hugs - Jean
