October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. We will be featuring October's SOTM, "Holiday Warmth." This is a set of 11 stamps that I have used to make some Christmas Cards. If you have come from Carol's Blog, you are on the right path.

Our hop has grown so much that we had made three separate rounds. If you are starting your hop here at my blog I am in Round 3. After my blog you can hop over to Wanda's blog to hop through this round. Be sure to visit all the rounds! You can start with Round 1 at Jena's blog, Round 2 at Debra's blog, and Round 3 starts at Judy's blog.

I prefer traditional colors for Christmas so I used Evensong Paper Pack for my cards. The Christmas tree has sparkles on the tree and my "i"s are dotted with a sparkle.
The "joy" card is first and second generation New England Ivy stamping. I used a small punched snowflake to dot my "j".
For this wreath card I wanted to use up my old red sparkles but you can use brads or punched circles if you don't have red sparkles.
The wreath is cut using colluzle and stamped on the back side of the BTP from Evensong with the snowflake. The background is a random stamped snowflake first and second generation New England Ivy.
Now Hop over to Wanda's blog to see her fantastic creation.

Don't forget to visit Round 1 and Round 2 of the October SOTM Blog Hop
