October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

October is upon us, can you believe it? That means the holidays are right around the corner!  Good thing you have joined us for this month's blog hop as it features a really cute set for Christmas. The name of the set is "Holiday Magic" and it is a set of 18 stamps. I am proud to be part of this group of wonderfully talented consultants. So sit back and prepare to be inspired.  If you are coming from Shannon's  blog, you are on the right track. It's okay if you are starting here; just be sure to complete the circle so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects my fellow consultants have created.





This month I have made a card using the new kraft die-cut cards as my base. The only other paper was colonial white cardstock. The trees are stamped in Garden Green and New England Ivy, and the sleigh is done using Cranberry and silver embossing powder. After stamping I stippled the background using Desert Sand. I added Glitz glitter gel in red for that little bling that just lends itself to the holidays.




On the inside of the card I used one of the small stamps from the set to make a wreath around the sentiment. I love these sets that have two part sentiments so you can put something on the outside and inside of the card.  I added a little bling to that too.











Now hop along to Cindy's blog to enjoy more projects featuring this holiday stamp set. Don't forget "Holiday Magic"  will only be available for the month of October. Contact your consultant or go here to order yours before it's too late!
