Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today we are going to take a look at a mitten die from Impression Obsession.
So many ways to use this really cute set.
The set includes three dies, the mitten, the beautiful snowflake and the bow.

The first thing I did with it was make a simple holiday card.
Die cut the image using water color paper with some texture. Used
Spun Sugar distress ink around the entire mitten. At the cuff, I layed
a post-it note across where I wanted the cuff to end and inked the cuff with the same ink.
I then scored lines on the cuff section.
The background paper is Basic Gray, Eskimo Kisses. Corners are a Paper Shapers punch.
The deer is a holiday punch by Ek Success. I dotted around the deer with a Sharpie Poster Paint
White Marker. Tied a thin pink ribbon around the base of the cuff.

This is the inside of the card. Stamped sentiment is Penny Black (3517F).
Deer punch is Martha Stewart.
Secondly, used the mitten to make a money holder.
Papers My Minds Eye Glittered. Cut a piece of green card stock
for the cuff and ran it through a Cuddlebug embossing folder (small hearts)
Added the die of the bow also run through the embossing folder.
Heart is a Marvey punch. Snowflake is also a punch.
Button and string bow added to cuff.

To make a money holder, I cut a second mitten in white card stock.
Ran 1/8 inch score tape around the entire mitten except the top and adhered
the two pieces together. I cut a piece of white card stock to fit into
the mitten and long enough to fold up to create a pocket to hold the money.
The stamped image is Jillian Clear Stamps. I used a circle punch (fold the circle in half and glue) to make a tab to pull out the money and greeting piece.
#3 is a Gift Tag. The tag was made from papers from the Tim Holtz seasonal Stack, including Christmas Greetings tag. The mitten was cut from papers from the Authentique 6x6 Stack.
Cut red card stock and scored it to create the cuff. Bow was run through an embossing folder for texture. Inked around the mitten with Frayed Burlap distress ink. Added a thin fabric bow and two small bells.
This is the back of the gift tag.
And finally, Created this fun, shaped card. Just cut the mitten from
designer card stock or colored card stock (here I used Bo Bunny paper)
Added a white fur strip across the top and cut snowflake from white glittered paper.
Inside of mitten card. Sentiment is by Northwoods .
This is such a fun die set. I'm sure you could think of many
other ways to use it too.
Have a great Week.
Thanks for stopping by.
