After-Christmas shopping: My goodies!

It's a little later than I planned, but here's the second installment of what I picked up the day after Christmas in the clearance aisles.

First of all, these clear stamp sets that ended up at $1.50 each (sorry about the glare on the middle one - it's really cute and has a snow globe with a penguin in it, as well as some other cute stamps):


Some reported finding them regular-priced at $1.00 each, but they were regular $3.00 at my Wal-Mart. Of course, I never saw them when they were full-priced, but there were tons of them on clearance. These are a little bigger than the $1 clear stamp sets from Michael's.

Then they had these big Martha Stewart sets on clearance for $4.45 each:

I certainly wasn't going to pass them up for that price! I can't wait to play with them, especially the gingerbread set. I'm thinking I can get some good mileage out of the gingerbread house images, even for events other than Christmas.

I don't have a close-up of it, but I also got the Martha Stewart snowflake punch for $4.45. (It's in the next picture, if you're interested.) I've been wanting one!

I picked up a few other things at the dollar store (20 paper snowflake doilies and glittery chenille stems for $0.50 each) and Michael's (everything not mentioned previously - $0.60 each pack):



I'm planning to use the notecards as a decorative base for more dressed-up cards. The square cards are embossed with beautiful swirls!

OOOH! I am so jealous of all your stamps! Good deal that you found. I only found one little stamp set at my local Wal-Mart but I was proud of that!! Happy stamping. I can't wait to see all of your handiwork!
