Stampers Dozen Blog Hop December 2018 Occasions Catalog Life is Grand Sneak Peek!

Hey there! Our Stampers Dozen Blog Hop December theme is "Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek!


For my project today I chose to use the Piece of Cake Bundle photopolymer stamps and Cake Builder Punch, along with the Life is Grand cling stamp set. My camera did not do a good job with the colors of this card, which are Powder Pink, Soft Suede, and Whisper White. I stamped the "make a wish" with Powder Pink on the Powder Pink layer.  This phrase is from the Life is Grand "cling" stamp set in the Occasions catalog. "Cling" stamps are new to this catalog. They are still red rubber like the current "clear-mount" or "wood-mount" stamps we currently carry, but have an innovative sticker that is sticky on both sides so it sticks firmly to the clear blocks!


I used Petal Pink 1/4" ribbon from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack in the Annual Catalog.


I added the cake from the new Occasions Catalog set, Piece of Cake.


This stamp set is bundled with the Cake Builder Punch. I laid the photopolymer stamps on the images on the punch to get my placement for the stamping block.


I pressed the block to the stamps and pulled them off of the top of the punch.


I stamped both the pedestal and the cake at the same time.


Punched both images at the same time.


The inside of the card is stamped with the same front image with stamped-off Powder Pink ink and another Life is Grand phrase.


Now it's time to hop on to the next blog in the hop!
