October Stamp of the Month ~ Christmas Tunes

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring October’s stamp of the month ~Christmas Tunes (S1710) a set of 7.

If you are coming here from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 25 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I was really drawn to the snow globe so I know that would be the stamp set I wanted to focus on.  I decided I used one of the Adventure fundamental paper for the background to emboss.

I also though I would grey to stamp on the silver foil paper with the Archival Black ink which work.  Just let it sit for a couple of minutes before you touch it. I did a bit of fussy cutting with the silver foil, Pewter cardstock and the White cardstock.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of October and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

Yuletide Christmas Cards

I fell in love with a card that the talented WENDY COFFMAN designed using October’s SOTM and some of last years retired Yuletide paper.  I just knew the moment I saw it I was going to CASE it (copy and share everything, copy and selectively edit, & copy another scrapbookers efforts) what ever definition you see fit :-).

ABC’c Blog Hop ~ Z

ABC's Blog HopWelcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter “Z”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “Z” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S BLOG ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY .  If you just came from LAUREN MOORE’S Blog then you are in the right place.

For my “Z” element I choose Zipstrip.  What is a Zipstrip you ask?  Well when you purchase the paper packs from Close to My Heart you have probable seen that strip of different pattern at the top of all the pattern papers.  On one side it tells you the paper pack and colors associated with that particular pack.  Well those Zipstrips are awesome for giving you coordinating patterns to accent your artwork.  Since I have been on my Christmas card marathon it was an easy way to add the right touch to this card.

ABC's Z ~ Snowhaven ~ October SOTM ~ Catscrapbooking.comSupplies used for this card:

  • Paper Pack ~ Snowhaven
  • Cardstock ~ Whisper and Daisy White
  • Stamp Sets ~ October 2014 SOTM Home for the Holidays and Wintery Wishes (a prior hostess exclusive stamp set)
  • Inks ~ Glacier, Black, Cranberry and Whisper
