October SOTM Blog Hop - Twinkle

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 
We will be featuring October's SOTM
which is Twinkle, a set of 15 stamps.
If you have come here from Paige Dolecki, 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 on Melinda’s Blog:
This month we have approximately 44 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the October SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!  
I love the new Sangria paper and thought it had a Christmas, festive appeal so used it for this Christmas card.   I also noticed that the stamped ornament resembled the ornament in the CTMH Cricut cartridge "Artbooking" Christmas overlay.  I used one sheet of the Sangria Bulk B&T paper and made 7 cards.  I cut the layout at 10 inches and then simply used 3-4 ornaments on each card.  Some of them have cut out centers and backed with red glitter trim.  I like the glitter and will be adding more circles and oval trim to the cards for the ornaments that have no glitter.

Now "Hop" on over to Michelle Loncar  to see her work! Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other creative inspiration! Comments are appreciated to encourage our creative endeavors.  We really do read them.

 Remember, the October SOTM is only available until October 31!  Contact your CTMH consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount! Each month you can purchase a new D-size stamp set, available for one month only, for just $5—that’s over 70% off retail! When you place an order of $50 or more in Close To My Heart products, you qualify for this special Stamp of the Month pricing.


  1. What pretty cards paired with the Sangria and purple shimmer trim- great non-festive colours that still work well!

  2. Love your cards....and I have to say that Sangria was my favorite paper line in the Annual catalog....I wouldn't have thought to use for Christmas, but it works so well!!! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Darling, what fun "non-traditional" colors for your Christmas Cards

  4. Awesome idea! Love the colors.

  5. Sweet set of cards Daryls! These would make great additions to a Christmas Card class!

  6. Great thinking outside the box using Sangria with this Christmas stamp set. Your cards are wonderful!
