Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Holiday Magic (October 2011)

It's time for the October edition of the Close To My Heart consultants' Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We're spreading a little Holiday Magic (and cheer) with the October stamp of the month. If you've already started the hop, then you should have arrived from Melinda Everitt's blog and you will heading to Jen Rubio's blog next.

You may be wondering where the Holiday Magic is with my first card, but those beautiful tree stamps turned upside down look like pennants to me! I had scraps from the Typset paper pack out on my table, so I got to work on this card (which I think fits the Play Date Cafe Challenge 101, Wine, Smudge, Leather, and Parchment, pretty well). The letters are from The Works stamp set.

My second card definitely fits the Holiday Magic theme. You can see the two trees as they were intended, along with the sleigh, snowflakes, and sentiment. Again, I used the Typset paper pack and color scheme, so the trees and snowflakes are Juniper and the sleigh is Vineyard Berry and Black.

Can you see how I tore a piece of Colonial White cardstock to make the "ground." I accent the "snow" with Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel to make everything sparkle.



Thanks for hopping by! Go check out Jen's pretty cards!

Haley,

Cute ideas!! I really love your creative way of using the tree!!

Haley, You are too much. It took me 2 looks to see that your upside down trees on your first card were part of the SOTM. Your second card is really cute and I really like those colors together.
