October 2016 Stamp of the Month Blog Hop ~ Yuletide Joy

Hello and welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. The featured stamp set for this month is called Yuletide Joy and it's beautiful!

Now this is a hop which means it's a big circle when you keep clicking the links. You can jump on and off at any point, but you WILL want to see all the beautiful creations by over 30 consultants! So if you've arrived from the blog of Haley Dyer you're on the right track. Just click on the link at the end of my post to continue on the hop.

Who doesn't love a pretty bell for the holidays? Well this one is perfect and looks so pretty heat embossed in gold. I added a touch of color with a water brush and the ink pads, too. The sheet music paper is a perfect element to my design. It's from the Oh Deer! paper pack.

The way our Stamp of the Month program works is that the featured stamp set is only available for that one month. So Yuletide Joy will ONLY be available from Oct. 1-31, 2016. After that it's gone. Don't miss out on this beautiful stamp set. You can order it at the full price of $17.95 or with a qualifying order get it for only $5.00! Click here for more info.
