November Stamp of the Month - Seasonal Trees


Thanks for stopping by


                                  November Stamp of the Month

Welcome!  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun and creative ideas. Glad you could join us today.  If you are coming from Krista's blog you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Joyce's blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature a link to continue following the hop.   If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.

This month's stamp set is Seasonal Trees It features 22 stamps great for creating unique trees. It's available only through the month of November.  After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to want to add this to your stamp collection.   You can purchase this set for $18.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant or find it here .



I have some winter themed cards for you today.  I used texture paste along with this stamp set to create these cards.   I have a special fondness for cardinals on winter cards, so I used a red marker to form a peak on the top of the bird's head to make it look like a cardinal.

October Stamp of the Month Thanks & Giving




Thanks for stopping by 


October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


Welcome!  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun and creative ideas. Glad you could join us today.  If you are coming from Krista's blog  you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Alayne's blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature a link to continue following the hop.   If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.

This month's stamp set, Thanks & Giving, is another one of my favorite stamp sets.  It features 16 stamps great for both scrapbooking and card making. It's available only through the month of October.   After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to want to add this to your stamp collection.   You can purchase this set for $18.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant or find it here .



This month I used Thanks & Giving stamps along with the woodgrain stamp from the Grateful Heart - Card Making stamp set to embellish this scrapbook two page layout.




Here's a closer look at some of the details.


The word Thankful and some of the flowers were stamped right on the layout.  Additional flowers and the hearts were stamped on other pieces of cardstock, colored and then fussy cut and added to the layout using foam tape.





The 4x6 Blessed card is from the Grateful Heart Paper pack Picture My Life Cards.  Because I wanted to repeat the woodgrain texture from this card on the 
other Espresso pieces of cardstock, I found just what I needed in the 



Here you see several other stamps from Thanks & Giving set. The little wreath is colored with a variety of ShinHan markers and mounted on the Sapphire tag made using the Fancy Tags Thin Cuts (Z4305)
