The Stamps of Life and Clearsnap are having a blog hop featuring The Stamps of Life stamps and Clearsnap inks and other fun products. Be sure you comment on all the stops along the hop because prizes will be randomly chosen among the comments!
The Stamps of Life will be giving away a prize to 3 lucky people – one stamp set (of the winner’s choice) per winner. 
Clearsnap will be giving away an assortment of Stephanie Barnard Colorbox Premium Dye inks. Enter to win using the widget on the Clearsnap blog and by leaving a comment on each blog in the hop {list is at the end of this post}.
As a crafter, my kids are always wanting to get in on the action. Stephanie Barnard's die and stamp sets with Sizzix make that really easy to do! 

My son and I created this fun little gift card holder from white cardstock, which we die cut with the dies from the Mittens & Snowglobe die and stamp set by Stephanie Barnard for Sizzix. We then used the Stephanie Barnard ColorBox Premium Dye Inkpads to stamp the matching images to each die cut. Since the stamps are clear, it was really easy for us to match up the image to the die cut and stamp without error. We then arranged the die cuts onto a small glassine bag and added a bow. 
This bag is perfect for a sweet little gift for a teacher or a hostess – and your kids can say that they made it!
Supplies:
  • Stephanie Barnard ColorBox Premium Dye Inkpads in Blueberry, Strawberry, Licorice, and Sky
  • Smooch Glitz in Frost and Prism
  • Smooch Accent Ink in Olive Twist and Siren
  • Sizzix Mittens & Snowglobe by Stephanie Barnard
  • Cardstock by Bazzill
  • Adhesive by Tombow
  • Bag by Whisker Graphics
  • Ribbon by hydrangeahippo.etsy.com
  • Child by Jennifer Priest (hehehe)
Thanks for hopping with us! Please be sure you visit all the stops in order to view all the fabulous projects the Clearsnap and The {Stamps} Of Life Design Teams have to show you!
