Thank you for joining me today for the Close To My Heart Consultant’s Blog Hop, featuring the October Stamp of the Month (SOTM), “Home for the Holidays.” If you have come here from Regina Kettering’s blog, then welcome!

The October Stamp of the Month set is a Holiday/Christmas-themed set. Can you believe that the holiday season is almost here? Have you started your Christmas card making yet? If not, this stamp set would be a great addition to your holiday sets! However, it is only available from October 1- 31, 2014, so make sure to get it now, well before the holiday season.

Here is the card that I made with the October SOTM. I used a White Daisy card base for this 5″ x 5″ card, and patterned papers from the Snowhaven Paper Packet. CTMH has 2 gorgeous Holiday themed paper packets this year… Yuletide Carol is specifically Christmas-oriented, and Snowhaven is very generic and could be used for much more than just winter-themed projects.

I focused on a candy theme, with candy canes and Christmas mints throughout the card, and the sentiment “Dreaming, Believing, Wishing.”

oct 2

After layering the patterned papers, I added a strip of Black Shimmer Trim along the bottom portion of the card for some shine. The 3 mints and the top candy cane were popped off of the card slightly with some Thin Foam Tape.

To finish off the card, I added Clear Sparkles and Bitty Sparkles throughout the card, and even dotted each “i” with a cute, little Bitty Sparkle!
