CTMH October Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop is Christmas Magic

posted in: Cards | 21
Welcome to another blog hop!  We’ve got lots of fabulous consultants participating again and I’m positive that you’ll find some amazing talent and inspiring ideas this month.  If you came from Mary Eisen’s blog, you’re on the right track.
This month’s stamp set, called Sharing the Magic, is all about Christmas.  You’ll have plenty of time to get those cards made in time to send to friends and family.  It’s a pretty cute set, with lots of creative possibilities.  Now, I’m not a huge fan of outline stamps.  I’m one of those people who doesn’t particularly enjoy colouring in images.  I find it takes too much of my time and my time is quite precious right now.  But there are lots of things you can do to get around colouring in these sweet images.  Here’s what I did with this set:
I stamped the tree on patterned paper from Mistletoe Level 2, then cut it out.  I also stamped it on my Colonial White paper so the little extra lines would still be there.  Then I popped the image with 3-D Foam Tape and added some red sparkles (love the new bling!).  I also sponged around the edges of the papers with Cocoa ink.  The ribbon is from the Mistletoe Creative Basics kit and this pattern came from Wishes.
Here’s a close-up so you can see the layers a bit better.

I hope you appreciate the simplicity of this card.  Might be one you could make many multiples of, even.  Hmmm…. maybe I should use it for my personal cards.

The next stop on the hop is the very talented Antoinette Herrin.

Happy Creating!

    Love how you used the “flip” side of the patterned paper of the tree. This two toned neutral looks so elegant!
