Tickled Pink Stamps Merry Christmas Blog Hop

It's release day over at Tickled Pink Stamps for our new sentiment set and matching die so we are hop hop hopping along to celebrate. There are hidden candies and prizes along the way too - so enjoy and GOOD LUCK!! You should have arrived here from Amy's blog but if you haven't you can head back to the start at Ann's blog - our wonderful sentiment designer! The full blog list will be on the Tickled Pink Stamps blog if you get lost along the way....


I used the frame stamp and the die to create some "placecards" for my Christmas table - as you can see they are actually little chairs and I still have a few to finish off. The seat is actually a box measuring approx 2"x2"x2" and will be used to hide some Christmas chocolates in. The names were generated on my computer and the poinsettia was cut using my Magnolia doohickey die. The DP is Basic Grey's Jovial range.

I have to thank my dear friend Deb A for this fabulous idea (yup another Debbie and why I'm known as Debbie P - LOL). Her daughter works at a wedding venue and she often brings home the left over favour boxes - this chair was one of those and Deb brought it around to show me. I've drafted it out in my Craft Robo (Silhouette) software and got my craft robo to do all the cutting for me. If anyone would like the GSD cutting file please email me and I'll send it on. I have also drawn out the pattern if anyone would like a printable version - again just email me.

These were soo fun and simple to make - am trying to work out some other variations - maybe having Santa sitting on the chair?!?!?!

Now it's time to keep on hopping - your next stop is Jane's blog.

Hi Debbie. This is such an awesome idea! Your Christmas table is sure to look very regal. I think that the names and the frame around them make the whole idea look very sofistacated. (sorry, bad speller!) Anyway I think that your project is wonderful. Thanks for sharing your work. I just love seeing everyone's ideas. Hugs, Lisa G

These are great - and just a little bit different. The frame stamp and die are great, aren't they? I made over 110 gift boxes for my son's wedding and didn't even think of using my Silhouette! Duh! Thanks for sharing, Dee
