Stamp of the Month Blog Hop -- New Year's Cheer

Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Priscilla Gotham, 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 S1611 New Year's Cheer (pictured below).  This set is only available until November 30th and is only $5 with a $50 Close to My Heart purchase.

It is easy to look at this stamp set and immediately think of lots of New Year's projects, but the elegance and glam of the set are wonderful for other occassions as well... like weddings, celebrations, glam birthdays, Great Gatsby-themed projects, etc.  I decided to make an glamorous celebration-themed card.  The gold glitter paper really steps up the glam effect.  What do you think?

Supplies used:
* New Year's Cheer stamp set (November SOTM)
*12" x 12" Black cardstock
*12" x 12" White Daisy cardstock
*Gold glitter paper
*5 1/2" X 4 1/4" white cards & envelopes, value pack
*Black Exclusive Inks stamp pad
*Marvy Uchida LePen journaling pen
*Red enamel gems
