Holiday Magic - October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you have found yourself here from Susan Brooks' Blog, then you are in the right place.  This month we have approximately 55 Close to My Heart Consultants for the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  

The October Stamp of the Month is entitled Holiday Magic (Set of 18).    See some examples below showing what you can do with this stamp set.

And here are the stamps in this set.  Aren't they adorable?

Look what I did with it!

I used the new Level 2 Paper Pack called Wonderland (X7146B).  One of the things that I really love about our new paper packs is that on the top of the paper pack on the "zip strip" you will find the colors featured in this paper pack.  I love that I no longer have to guess which color blue is on the patterned paper.  I am going to list supplies used at the bottom of this post, but I wanted to point out that I used our Clear Buttons (Z1391) coated on the flat back with our Glitz Stardust Glitter Gel (Z1313) to give the impression of snow flakes.  They have a snowflake pattern on them and with the Glitter Gel they shimmer.  Check out my cute raccoon sitting on the sleigh.  He is from Bundled Buddies (C1472).  I paper pieced his scarf from the striped pattern paper in Wonderland.  He is colored with ink and a blending pen (3174).

The runners for the sleigh was stamped with Grey Wool and then Silver Glitz Glitter Gel was applied over the stamped image.

Oh!  By the way, the Twilight Cardstock shape and the patterned paper background was cut with the new Cricut exclusive Art Philosophy Collection (Z1686).
