December SOTM Blog Hop – Candy Cane Alphabet

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring DECEMBER’s stamp of the month ~ CANDY CANE ALPHABET (S1812) a set of 44.

If you are coming here from WENDY KESSLER’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 14 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I was out of time before going on our vacation as I planned to design a layout.  I had an inspiration for a card and it came together rather quickly I am quite pleased on how it turned out.

I focused on the “H” and “O” to stamp out HO HO.  I decided to make one stand out with the New England Ivy.  I used the ‘Tis The Season Paper Pack.  I also used the Make It From Your Heart Volume 4 and used pattern 12 as my design. I used the Silver Glitter Gems and New England Ivy Burlap Ribbon.

I decided to add a little sparkle to my HO HO’s. I used my Red Shimmer brush on the Candy Apple stamped HO’s and then added a bit of Liquid Glass and Shimmer Brush to the New England Ivy “HO”.

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 December and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

I wanted to play around with the new Season of Joy cartridge a bit more so that is where I went for my inspiration.

I love the mistletoe and knew this would be my focus.  I selected the Red Glitter paper to cut the Merry Kiss-mas. I used fern to cut the mistletoe.  I then decided to use the stitched border from the Decorative Border Thin Cuts.  Then I matted it on the holly paper for the Tis The Season Paper Pack.  I then felt something was missing…. I decided to use my Red Shimmer brush to and then a dot of Liquid Glass to give it a 3-D effect.
