October Stamp of the Month


Are you ready to start thinking about Christmas yet? I find it hard to focus on it until after Halloween most years. However, Christmas and papercrafting are ALWAYS a good combination. And the new CTMH Christmas line, Mistletoe, is too gorgeous to ignore!

I had fun with this paper set for my quality swap group. When I completed this card, I wasn’t sure I was happy with it. It seemed too plain. However, I have learned over the years to walk away from a project I am not happy with for a few hours and come back to it later, and I often find I actually like it as is. Once again, this proved true. When I came back and looked at this card the following day, it had a vintage (50s?) look to it to me. This snowman from the October SOTM is just too cute!!


You can also see used on this card the new Licorice Opaques (pearls) Z1335, the decorative brad is form the Mistletoe Level 2 embellishment pack Z1330 (which is GORGEOUS!), and the colored Sparkles Z1326. The sentiment is from the set Father Christmas D1449.
