This month at Papertrey Ink, the blog hop theme was to be inspired by cover art from books and magazines! I went straight to the children's section at Amazon.com to search for holiday books, and found this adorable Toot & Puddle book by Holly Hobbie. (One of my favorite books of all time is Toot & Puddle's "I'll be Home for Christmas.")
Something about that big red bow and the layout got me! Since PTI doesn't make any skiing piglet stamps, I decided to use Holiday Button Bits!
I stamped the snow using Polka Dot Basics. I used VersaMark ink, then heat embossed it with white powder. The sentiment is also from Holiday Button Bits. The big red bow was made with Pure Poppy cardstock using the L'il Inker Designs Bow die (small).
This is one of my most used stamps of all time! I stamped him in VersaMagic Gingerbead ink (of course!) and added some plaid paper buttons cut with the Buttoned Up #1 die.
I can't wait to see all of the entries today...this was SUCH a fun theme for a blog hop!
Thanks for stopping by :)
