October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Christmas Tunes

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Carol Taggio's Blog.}   We have 26 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 October Stamp of the Month is entitled Christmas Tunes (S1710) (Set of  7).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

Yikes!  Did you know that we only have 12 more weeks until Christmas?  Do you have your Christmas cards made yet?  I am always behind.  Sometimes I am so far behind that I am actually way ahead because I hold my cards until the next year.

The October Stamp of the Month will be so useful to create many types of cards.  Each stamp can be used in its own card.  I started with the Snow Globe but the next one I will use is the tree.  I want to emboss it and color it in or emboss it with gold embossing powder on a deep color - doesn't matter which one.  They will all be pretty.

Here is my card.

For this card, I used the Beary Christmas paper pack, Gold gems, I embossed it using Versamark watermark ink and our Black Ink, Cranberry Ink, and I colored it with Mahogany and Carmine Shin Han markers.  I also pulled out another stamp set - C1688 First Noel.  I love the font on the Merry Christmas and the border stamp added a little pizzaz.

The October Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $17.95 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 October 1 – October 31, 2017.
