Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Yuletide Joy

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Lela, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

The month's featured stamp set is S1610 Yuletide Joy (pictured below).  This set is only available until October 31st and is only $5 with a $50 Close to My Heart purchase.

For today's hop, I wanted to do a simple, yet elegant Christmas card that would be relatively easy to produce in mass.  I love how the Oh Deer! paper gives a rustic feel to this card while the star stamp from the Yuletide Joy set adds an elegant touch.  If you really wanted to jazz up the card, you could heat emboss the star image in silver instead of stamping it in Whisper.

Supplies used:
*Yuletide Joy stamp set
*Art Philosophy Cricut collection (retired)
*Oh Deer! paper packet
*12" x 12" Slate cardstock
*12" x 12" White Daisy cardstock
*Sea Glass glitter paper
*5 1/2" X 4 1/4" white cards & envelopes, value pack
*Whisper Exclusive Inks stamp pad
*ShinHan Touch Twin Turquoise Blue marker
*ShinHan Touch Twin Pastel Green marker
*Bitty sparkles
