October Stamp Of The Month: Scandinavian Wishes

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We are featuring October's SOTM, which is Scandinavian Wishes, a set of 12 stamps.  If you have come here from Jean McNulty's Blog , you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here

This month we have 58 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I made 2 cards using this stamp set, and couldn't decide which one I liked the best so decided to share them both with you.
This first card I used a Frosted paper, Twilight and Ruby Cardstock, as well as a piece of Whisper for the sentiment.  I also cut the image that cooresponds with the stamp from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I also stamped the sentiment Happy Holidays on the Twilight and Ruby cardstock with the matching ink for a tone on tone to create my own background paper.  The image and sentiment are popped up using 3D foam tape.

 My second card is made using Whisper and Twilight Cardstock and Frosted paper.  I again made my own background paper using the words Joy, Love, Peace and Hope and stamped in the matching ink for the tone on tone look.  I stamped the ornament image using Twilight Pigment Ink and added clear embossing powder and heat set it.  I punched a hole through the card, and tied the ornament using bakers twine.  The image stamped on the Twilight cardstock is a border stamp, and I stamped that in Twilight ink as well as the sentiment.
