October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Yuletide Joy

Close To My Heart
October Stamp of the Month
Blog Hop

This month we are featuring a great Christmas  themed stamp set that will be fun for card making or scrapbooking.  If you have never participated in a blog hop before, it's one big circle of ideas, as you go from blog to blog.  It's fun to see all the different ways other consultants think of using the stamp set.  If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post to see where to go for the next stop. 

If you are coming from Wendy Coffman's blog you are on the right path.

For my project this month, I worked on some Christmas cards.  

For the first set I used the cards from the Cut Above 'Tis the Season Card Kit 
and embossed the images with white embossing powder.

For this set, I used the papers from the City Sidewalks Paper packet, Poppy, Willow, and White Daisy cardstock and ShinHan Touch Twin markers, Bitty Sparkles, and  Memento ink.

Here's a closer look at the cards from this set.

Supplies used:  Click on each link to find these in the catalog
Stamp Sets: - Yuletide Joy and the exclusive workshop stamp set from the Happy Holidays Workshops Your Way kit
Markers: ShinHan Touch Twin Markers - Vivid Green and Carmine
Embossing powder: White Embossing Powder
Embossing folders: Simple Chevron, Confetti Stars
Embellishments:  Bitty Sparkles 

Thanks for stopping by to see the fun I had creating with this new stamp set which is available only through the month of October for $17.95  -- or better yet, just $5 with a $50 purchase available through your CTMH consultant or on my website.  (PS -- I'd love to be your consultant!)

I am looking forward to seeing the ideas the other consultants in this hop have created.  So join me as we venture on.  Our next stop on this blog hop is Tracie Cassidy's blog.  If for some reason you get disconnected along the way, you can  find the complete blog hop list here to get back into the loop.
