November Stamp of the Month - You Warm My Heart Blog Hop

 Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

This month I am following {Michelle Stewart's blog}   We have 22 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.  

The November Stamp of the Month is entitled  You Warm My Heart  (S2011) (Set of  19).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

I have been holding Facebook Lives on my customer group  and teaching various techniques and projects.  After watching a video on ways to use our beautiful Woodgrain paper taught by Brenda Rose, I decided to make my card's gorgeous slat "fence" background.  I showed my customers this week how to do this on Thursday.  Here's the video of how to assemble this background.

Here is my card:

I really needed a distraction today and I have found that creating provides me with this distraction  I took the slat fence background I made last week and stamped the pretty tea cup from the November Stamp of the Month stamp set with  Candy Apple Ink onto French Vanilla Cardstock.  The hot chocolate was stamped with Espresso Ink.  My hot chocolate even has marshmallows in it.  The marshmallows are stamped onto White Daisy cardstock.  I added a little White Opal Liquid Pearls on them to make them stand out.

The sentiment is stamped on French Vanilla cardstock that was splattered with Toffee and Espresso Shimmer Brushes.  I cut it into a bracket shape with Stitched Fancy Brackets.  The stitched bracket is  matted with  Black Cardstock.

On the top of the card you will see the Christmas lights cut out of Black Cardstock using our new thin cuts called Yuletide Borders.

I added Golden Rod Stickles to decorate my red teacup.  

The November Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $18.95 or if you purchase $50 in CTMH products, you can add this stamp set to your order for an additional $5.  This stamp set is only available between November 1 – November 30, 2020.
