Yuletide Joy (October SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  Fall weather is here, and it is time to start thinking about the Holidays.  This month's stamp-of-the-month is a great way to start your card making.         

If you have come here from Inky Hearts Papercrafting, 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!  

Influenced by the beautiful black and colorful paper in the Swan Lake packet, the gift image from Yuletide Joy was stamped using Black ink and then just a bit of color was added using some markers.  The gold and black grosgrain from the Uptown Ribbon collection adds some texture.        

Place a $50 minimum order this month (October 2016) and you are eligible to purchase the Yuletide Joy stamp set for only $5. It is also available for $17.95 without a qualifying purchase.  

Now "Hop" on over to the Stampologist 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. 

If you get lost along the way, the complete list of participants is available on Melinda's 'If You Bling It' blog.   

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
