A Peek-A-Boo Christmas

I just love the Festive Friday Challenge, not that I have had the chance to join in lately, but hoping that will change in the coming weeks.  I was extra inspired to join in this week because last weekend at the Stampin' Up! Convention I got to meet the very lovely Nicole who runs the challenge!!!  I just love Convention because I get to meet in person those I know on-line.

 In a double Convention hit this week I have chosen to use one of the sneak peek items that will be in our upcoming Annual Catalogue in September.  We got to use this new Big Shot Die at the I Am Creative class on the Friday night, I can't wait to get my hands on these when the new catalogue comes out, I can see so many options for this one!

I have also used the DSP from the Christmas pack - I just love the way the pattern on this one seems to sparkle and it went so well with the Glimmer Paper '25'.  

The window opens up to show a cute little image underneath, aren't these cute?  They come in a variety of shapes, all open up to reveal a surprise underneath.  For this one I chose to use another image from the stamp set we used in our creative class, I inked this up with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker so that the '25' on the stamp did not get inked.  This is another of my attempts to use this set as more than just an advent set.

Happy Stamping


  1. Oh Monique, what a great entry for the challenge! I just today put away all my extra offcuts from this die and was thinking of ways I could use them. Yours fits the sketch perfectly! Thanks for playing!

  2. Love your card Monique!! Fantastic idea

  3. What a fantastic idea, it is so cool. I love the bling.
