Christmas Card Workshop

Wow! What a busy month this has been. I can't believe it is almost the last week of October. Since I haven't had much time to do any paper crafting, I thought I would share some of the cards that we will be making at my Christmas card workshop this weekend. These are made using various stamp sets and the Jingle papers with coordinating cardstock.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

October Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month blog hop! This month's hop features "Holiday Warmth", a set of 11 stamps.

I hope you enjoy the new format of the hop; with the smaller groups. Please see my post from the 28th to find out where to go to see the rest of the hop after you are done with our group. You won't want to miss any of the artwork!

I decided to combine two of my favorite things when I made this card; snowglobes and shaker cards. I stamped and embossed the tree, colored it and added liquid glass to make ornaments. Then, I stamped the presents from the set on shrink plastic to put in with the beads for the shaker. The card will fit in a 6 x 6 envelope.

Now, hop on over to Paige's blog to view her beautiful artwork. If you get lost along the way, come back here and refer to the list in the post below.

And, be sure to contact your Close to my Heart consultant, or click here to purchase this great stamp set. Remember, it's only available during the month of October.
