I LOVE this stamp set, and seeing it gets me “a little” excited for Christmas! J  Christmas really is closer than we think, isn’t it? J 

So, let’s get right to the Blog Hop…
If you have come here from Vicki Price’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 HERE

This month we have
over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's stamp set!!
So, sit back and enjoy your tour as you click on the link at the end of the post to see what EACH Consultant has created!!
It was FUN to put my mind into “Christmas mode” to create this card!

I used Pattern #23 from our NEW Make It From Your Heart, vol 2 for the starting design! 

Of course with this stamp set being Cricut Compatible to our Art Philosophy Cricut bundle…it made it even EASIER to create!!

I chose to use TWO of our paper packs to complete this card!  Did you find them?  I used Frosted & Proplayer paper packs

I never thought I could create items by combining CTMH paper packs - even though they are meant to be used that way too!  I just LOVE the colors & patterns that CTMH puts together, and haven’t tried (until in the last year or so) to combine the paper collection.  What amazing & fun results!

I also used one of my FAVORITE background stamp sets (I hope they never take this stamp set away! LOL!)

Here it is…Universal Backgrounds
You can use this background stamp set for so many creations!!  I KNOW if I would do a search on my blog - I would be AMAZED at how often I use this stamp set!  This is a must-have in everyone’s collection!!

Here is one final close up picture…showing you the bitty sparkles that I added to the ornaments.  To make the silver “string” at the top of the ornaments, I cut our Silver Shimmer Trim in thirds and made “string”!

  5. Very nice ornament card. Really like how you used the shimmer trim as the "hanger" and the musical notes background stamp. I need to remember to use those background stamps more often!
