November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the November SOTM Blog Hop and my blog.  If you are coming from Pam's Blog you are coming from the right place.  And if you get lost along the way, here is the list of all of the hoppers participating in November's hop.

I made a card using the 8x3.5 size and it works perfectly with the lamp post in the stamp set.  The pattern is from Wishes and is called Simply Said.  I used the Hounds-tooth paper from Sparkle and Shine, as well as Ruby and Slate Card Stock.  Black Ink and Sparkles finish it off.  Did you notice the light in the street lamp? That's Honey Ink giving it a bit of shine.  The lamp is popped up.
This is a set of 15 stamps and you can get your very own for just $5 when you spend $50 on products.  Now hop on over to Carla's Blog to see her wonderful artwork.  Enjoy!!

Ho! Ho! Ho!

I just love this Santa stamp set!  It reminds me of the old fashioned ones I used to see as a kid.  Here I stamped him on White Daisy Card Stock with Slate Ink.  I restamped his hat on Ruby Card Stock with Ruby Ink.  The sentiment is in Slate.  The ornament side of the Sparkle & Shine Paper has a little sheen to it, you should see how pretty it is.  The zip strip from the paper has a sleigh, bells and reindeer.  I used the pattern from Make It From Your Heart Vol 1 for this card.  Check out the Gift Guide to see the rest of the images from this set or stay tuned for the next card I post because I will have a couple more.

House Guests

I've been having a few house guests at my house lately.  We have been having so much fun playing with toys, building, reading and all the things that go with little ones.  I am so lucky to have them only 2 hours away.  The kids are changing so fast, I love being able to see that first hand.

Oh, Chistmas Tree

I have seen this done so many times and have never tried it till now.  I think it's cute and oh, so simple.  CTMH has a new pack of Washi Tape available in the Holiday Gift Guide.  With those designs and the one in the Fall/Winter Catalog, I made this little tree.  The stamp "Merry & Bright" comes from the Merry & Bright set (C1510) and is stamped in Ruby.  The star is Glitter Paper and stem is Slate Card Stock with the background of Whisper.  I used a fine black marker to draw the line around the tree.  

Thanks for visiting today!

Harvest Going Full Blast and a Card

The leaves are changing colors, there is a chill is the air.  For those who know me, I am now on the phone all of the time, and in the midst of the corn and bean harvest in the Midwest.  The tires are rolling, the lines and hours are long, but the crops are coming out and the scrap room is quiet.  I did get a chance to make a few cards for Club the other day, so I will share them with you over the next few days. My house is decorated for Fall and Halloween, but we made Christmas cards.   Quite the combination.  
With the new Holidays from the Heart Gift Guide out now, I used the papers from that for my inspiration.  This is a center step card and if you google that, you can find a wealth of information and ideas.  It might look a little complicated, but it is not at all.  Try one, you'll make lots more.

Supplies: Sparkle & Shine Paper Pack, October Stamp of the Month Scandinavian Wishes, Juniper and Ruby Inks, Base & Bling Floral Accents, Grey Baker's Twine and Clear Sparkles  

I hope you are enjoying your Fall.  Take the time to see those beautiful colors and take in all the sights and sounds of Autumn.
