Twinkle (October SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  This month's stamp set, Twinkle, is perfect for creating Holiday cards, scrapbook pages, and other fun projects.  See all the images in the stamp set in the picture at the bottom of this post.    

If you have come here from Wendy's My Scrapbooking Blog, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  

Since Close To My Heart now offers a Circle Diffuser to use with our Embossing Folders, I decided to try it out.  Using the new Confetti Embossing Folder along with the Circle Diffuser, a round "flat" surface is left on the cardstock after embossing.  In this space, I stamped the circle of stars from the Twinkle set along with the "Merry Everything" sentiment.  To add a bit of shine, some Silver Foil Tape was added along the edges of the card along with a pre-made bow from one of the Paper Fundamental Assortments.           

Place a $50 minimum order this month (October 2015) and you are eligible to purchase the Twinkle stamp set for only $5. It is also available for $17.95 without a qualifying purchase.  

Now "Hop" on over to My Creations with Michelle blog to see her work.  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas.
