"CHRISTMAS TUNES" - October Stamp of the Month

The October Stamp of the Month "Christmas Tunes" is SO MUCH FUN to play with!!!!  There are so many possibilities!  This stamp set consists of 7 images.  The item number is S1710.  You can purchase this for just $5.00 with a minimum $50 order.

I had some fun cutting out the center of the snow globe image and adding the dog from the "Punny Pals" stamp set I shared with you yesterday (D1751).  The Santa Hat on the dog came from another stamp set- "Beary Christmas-Scrapbooking."  A tip for you- look through your collection of stamp sets to find images that can be combined with each other.  The santa hat that the bear is wearing in the "Beary Christmas" stamp set is perfect for all the animals in the "Punny Pals" stamp set.  I simply cut the hat off the bear and then stamped the image, colored it and cut it out.  Then adhered it to the dog.  Isn't he cute?  He kinda reminds me of MAX the dog on How The Grinch Stole Christmas!
