October Stamp Of the Month - Holiday Magic

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop! This month's stamp set, Holiday Magic,  is a Limited Edition and contains 18 great stamps!

If you came here from Sarita's Blog you are on the right track. If you would like to see a complete list of SOTM bloggers click here. There are almost sixty consultants who have projects to share with you for September.

I made several cards out of non-traditional paper pack (Sophia) to teach a class on making several cards with minimal amounts of paper and card stock:

The left side is sparkled up, the right side is plain.  Both are made up to look like a present.  The tag and overlay are Art Philosophy cuts!

The background items are small scrap pieces and the sleigh is stamped in black and cut out to be on top of image.  The left shows the card vertically and the right shows the horizontal layout.

The next set is using scraps and a cricut cut stocking which is overstamped.  The snowflake that is held by a brad (sorry, not CTMH brad) is also cut with the Cricut!

The left side has an ornament which came out of a Art Philosophy card cut and which had liquid glass placed in the center and was edged with stardust gel.

I love the precut cards and keep the images that cut in plastic bags to use as embellishments on other cards.  No waste!

The final card set is the tree image.  The left side has a little blingie topper from the bling assortment.
