October Stamp of the Month Blog

Is it the holiday season already??? No not yet....let's get through Halloween and Thanksgiving first!! :-) But Close to My Heart is preparing you for the holiday season with this new SOTM called Holiday Warmth, a set of 11 stamps, for the month of October! I hope you enjoy this blog hop of what may be many verisons of holiday cards...and hopefully a few other cards to show you another way to use a holiday stamp set that is not for the holidays!! If you came here from Kathleen Androlewicz's blog you are in the right spot! This blog is simple...just click on the link at the end of the post and move on to the next one. Enjoy!!

I love browsing through my idea books to get ideas. But the funny thing cards or layouts never look exactly like the ideas in the book. I end up with my own verison of a card. I found Geometric on page 124 in Wishes...but my card and deminsions are nothing like the card. But you can see the idea behind it! :) I scored a white daisy cardstock and rubbed with a sponge Creme Brulee ink all over the paper to give it the "shine" color. I also used sparkles and the new glitter brads to help the Christmas tree shine and sparkle. Plus with the help of liquid glass I was albe to make the star shine on top of the tree. I hope you enjoyed my Christmas card!

Products Used:

Paper: Jingle paper pack, White Daisy CS
Colors: White Daisy, Creme Brulee, Tulip, Olive, Juniper, New England Ivy
Accesories: Clear Sparkles, Spring Blossom Brad Assortments, Twinkle Brads Jolly Assortment, Liquid Glass, Wishes

  1. The card base looks like it's made from wood - great way to add dimension to plain cardstock.

  2. I like the different ornaments on your tree!
