Gingerbread men - FMS50

We are all very excitedly waiting for the Holiday Catalogue to begin on Saturday and today I have made up a "sneak peak" of a cute stamp set that is in there, Scentsational Season. What is even better is that this little set of six stamps has matching framelits dies for cutting out the images. On top of that, Stampin' Up bundled them together for a super-saving of 15%!

I chose the gingerbread man image for this card, and joined their hands with Real Red brads. Following the sketch this week from Freshly Made Sketches I layered gorgeous patterned paper Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. This is a smaller pad, 11.4cm by 16.5cm, but it contains 48 double-sided designs, 4 of each of the 12 designs. It is a very economical way to get a great variety of papers!
The red herringbone is the reverse of this sweet blue paper.

The greeting is from a set called Perfect Punches, it's been around for a while and as the name suggests, all these greetings match with a punch. There's this one for Christmas, and a fabulous 'happy birthday' which nestles in an oval , 'Thanks' in a scalloped oval and a few others too.

 Now don't foget to pop on over to Freshly Made Sketches if you're looking for inspiration!

Happy stamping
