October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! I hope you're in the mood for a little holiday feeling because this stamp set will do that for you! 

If you've come from Jen Patrick's blog then you're on the right path. It's one big circle with over 50 consultants sharing creative ideas for the A Very Merry Christmas set

Here is a card I made in two versions. Both were made the same way but with different color pallettes. My favorite is the cool tone in Slate, but I know a lot of you will also like the warm tone in Cocoa!

The colors used are Slate and Whisper (Cocoa & Champagne). The ornaments were cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge then stamped in pigment in and heat embossed with Clear Detail Embossing Powder. 3-D Foam was used to pop the ornament layer. The dotted background was made with the Cuttlebug. You can see a touch of ribbon and bling at the top of each ornament but there is also some tiny sparkles on the middle of the ornament as well. They just don't show up very well in the photo. All products (except the Cuttlebug) are available on my website!

Here's what the entire set looks like:
