October SOTM Blog Hop - Yuletide Joy


Welcome to our blog hop featuring Close To My Heart's October Stamp of the Month! You may have just come from Corinna Murphy's blog. If so, you're on the right path. For a complete list of participants, visit Melinda Everitt's blog list.
This stamp set is perfect for the Christmas cards and tags I'm making. I chose to use the star image for my first SOTM post:


I cut the stars at the suggested side for the bottom stamped star and stamped it again on a smaller star. I cut out a larger version for the gold glitter paper star and the negative space in the main panel and its kraft mat.  Here you can see the way I used thin dimensional foam tape on the mat layer and regular dimensional foam tape to pop up both stars.


I also made two tags using the gold embossed stars and wreath-type cuts from Cricut Flower Market. I cut the square wreath from Fern cardstock, but after gluing it in place, I regretted not usisng New England Ivy cardstock, so I colored it with the ShinHan Sap Green marker.



You can use my cut file which sized all the pieces for the 6.5" x 5" card and 5" x 2.5" tags if you're interested. (These cuts require the Art Philosophy and Flower Market cartridges.)
