Stampin up sweet snowglobe halloween card

Bat phones, batmobile . . . so why  not a "bat globe?"  Day 5 of my Week of Sneak Peeks from the Holiday Mini Catalog showcases a new "kid" on the single stamp block and it's called Sweet Snowglobe.  With a little "bat-tastic" modification, it goes from a snowy setting (very charming) to batty.  The stamp is designed to work with the Sweet Treat Cups (round) and will be available for customer purchase when the Holiday Mini Catalog begins on September 1.

  • Stampin up halloween bat sweet snowglobe NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  Sweet Snowglobe (available 9/1) provides an ideal environment for a shaker card . . . from yummies to these 1/4" circles, have a little fun and shake it up. 
  • Say what you want!  I used the Sweet Shoppe Alphabet Upper and Lower sets to deliver my message.  With the clear-mount version, I was able to easily add the letters for "bats" on one block–stamping only once.  The font is modern and chic.
  • NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  Very pretty, bordering on "saucy," the Holiday Mini's 1/2" Lace Trim in "Raven" will doll up your projects from Halloween to Valentine's Day.
  • Stampin up bat punch black flourish designer jewels NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  Dash up your bats with Black Flourish Designer Jewels (available 9/1).  They come in strips for individual use and a simply smashing flourish that will add "wow" to any project.
  • NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  I'm loving that luscious texture on new Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (available 9/1).  My bats seem pretty happy landing on it, too.
