Very Merry Christmas: CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to another fantastic Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  If you're following along the path, you've just come from Judy's Blog.  If you've stumbled upon me while surfing, sit back and enjoy the 60+ ideas from some pretty talented CTMH Consultants!

I always love the October SOTM from Close To My Heart.  Why?  Because it is always a Christmas set!
And I love Christmas...just a bit. Smiley from millan.net

So let's have a look at this month's exclusive set, shall we?


Mittens, and ornaments, and sentiments...oh my!  Such a great collection!  I've had fun with this and have lots of ideas swimming around in my head, but for today I'll just share one of my projects...because it was a biggie!

I'm sure by now we've all seen those beautiful ornaments featured on that...other company's mini-catalog.  Smiley from millan.net  Well I knew it could easily have been created using this stamp set, even easier because it uses the new Artiste cartridge!  Just take a look.

Stamps: Very Merry Christmas October 2012 SOTM
Inks: Twilight
Papers: Twilight, White Daisy cardstock
Accessories: Sparkles, Slate Satin Polka-dot Ribbon, Bling Assortment,
Silver Glitz Gel, White Embroidery Floss
Tools: Art Philosophy & Artiste Cricut cartridges

 
 
This is a pretty large ornament.  It measures 7.5" long...12" with the ribbon hanger!  I'll have to find a special place for it in the house this season.  Somewhere it can catch the sun, it sure is sparkley!

Well I hope you've enjoyed my contribution to the hop.  I'll post a tutorial in a couple of days to show you how I made it.
 
Now you should head off to Kim's Blog and see her wonderful creation!  Thanks for stopping by!
