October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop~

So excited to start Christmas!
The stamp set for the October Stamp of the Month is called Yuletide Joy 

Yuletide Joy  has beautiful Christmas designs that you can colour.  Seven stamps for only $6. with a $50. purchase. This stamp set is only available until the last day of October.
The star and stocking  have coordinating cutouts from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.
If you have come here from  Paige Dolecki '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 approximately 34 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!

The first card is a 5X7" card. I used the City Sidewalks paper pack(X7213B), The star from the Stamp of the Month, White Daisy cardstock inked with Fern and Ruby Exclusive inks using a retired stamp set (D1562) and silver sequins. The stars were embossed with Ranger embossing powder(Z2067) and Recollections tinsel embossing powder. The sentiment is from Woodland Wishes(D1696).

The second card is a 4X5.5" card. I also used the City Sidewalks paper pack. The Daisy White cardstock is popped up with 3D foam tape.  I used the presents from the Stamp of the Month. I covered up parts of the stamp so I could give the presents dimension. I embossed all presents with the Ranger silver embossing powder and tinsel and green pearl embossing powder from Recollections. The bows were made with retired bakers twine and some twine from my stash. The branches from the tree are from a die cut from my stash. The sparkles are retired CTMH. The stars on the presents were colored with Golden Yellow Touch twin markers.
The sentiment was also embossed and is from the Stamp of the Month. I added some closer looks as my photography is not the greatest.
