Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
We will be featuring November's SOTM, You Warm My Heart, a set of 19 stamps. If you have come here from Cat'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 on Melinda’s Blog.

For my first card I started by choosing the Black and White plaid print from the Jingle Joy collection. I backed it with a Black Cardstock mat. The sentiment is stamped in Black Ink along with the mini Poinsettia which is stamped in Flamingo Ink. I added doodle lines and matted it on Evergreen Cardstock. The coffee cup is stamped in Raspberry Ink and I added some Silver Embellishing Thread to help embellish the card.
For my second card I wanted to pull in some wood grain paper, and I had this pattern sitting on my workspace so it's what I went with(LOL). I matted the wood grain on Evergreen cardstock. The coffee cup is stamped in Evergreen Ink. I stamped the Candy Cane in Raspberry Ink and tucked the bottom in behind the cup. I decided that the card needed a little colour so I pulled in the Candy Cane print from the Jingle Joy paper collection. The sentiment is stamped on Evergreen cardstock and I embossed it in White(as Karen would say, "When in doubt emboss in White"). I used the Stitched Bracket for the sentiment and also added the mini poinsettia in the corners to finish the frame. I felt it still needed a little something something, and pulled out the Silver Embellishing Thread again and tucked it behing the sentiment.
