October SOTM Blog Hop - Christmas Tunes



It's October already?! It's time for our CTMH October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring our new stamp set, "Christmas Tunes." You may have just come from Gina Brandstetter's blog.  To see the entire list of all 27 participants go to Melinda Everitt's blog list.


I love the Christmas song, O Holy Night, so I chose to make three cards using the wreath entwined with its lyrics. The first symbolically has black paper with white dots (like nighttime stars) from the new Silver and Gold paper pack. All three cards have one of the gold foiled zip strips from one of the papers in that pack.


The next twow have a background embossed with the Buffalo Plaid embossing folder.



Thanks for stopping by! Now you're ready to see what Emily Sararas has created.

If you don't have a consultant and would like this stamp set, you can purchase it here for $5.00 with a $50 purchase or buy it at full price for $17.95.
