When Imaginisce introduced their 
little pieces of art called "Snag'em" stamps
a few years back, I immediately fell in a lot of love!
They're perfect for all sorts of projects, especially if you're
wanting to create several of the same thing, such as cards or tags.
 Here are a couple of sweet cards that I crafted
using Snag'em stamps from Monster Mash and Christmas Cheer.

 Here's a little tip that makes a lot of difference when stamping with clear stamps:
lay a piece of foam or cloth under your project before stamping.
This allows the paper to meet with all of the image and leaves you
with a clean design!  In coloring in my stamped images, I'm fond of
using watercolor pencils or dye based markers such as LePlume by Marvy.

Supplies: Monster Mash- Mummy, Sugar Skull and Eddie Snag 'Em Stamps; 
Spook Alley 12x12 Paper; Tricks & Treats 12x12; Fall Medley 12x12 Paper;
 Glam Rocks - Rhinestuds; Tools- i-rock LED Lighted Tweezers; i-rock;
 Big Shot and Lace Scalloped Die and Lollipop Font Die by Lifestyle Crafts
 In keeping with the homespun feel of the kraft card I wanted to 
create a blanket stitch around the edging, but I didn't want to stitch directly onto the card. 
Instead, I took a piece of kraft paper and cut it to the size of the card front. I was then
 able to add the stitching without losing the effect that I was looking for! 
When adding the Hot Rocks to the stamped trees, I just followed the pattern of the dots 
from the Christmas Joy Paper ... nice, neat and easy!

 Supplies: Christmas Cheer- Partridge & Pear Tree Snag 'em Stamp;
 Warm Wishes 12 x 12 Paper; Christmas Joy 12 x 12 Paper; Peace on Earth 
5 x 12 Chipboard Sticker; Brad Daddies - Small; Hot Rocks Compact - Glitter; 
Tools- i-rock; i-top; Paper Punch - Small; i-rock LED LIghted Tweezers and i-rock Bling Pad

I appreciate you dropping in!

  2. Love the cute monster card - the sentiment is so funny! And that Christmas card with the awesome stitching is probably the prettiest Christmas card I've seen thus far.

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
