November SOTM Blog Hop - Seasonal Trees

Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop 

We will be featuring the November SOTM, 
which is "Seasonal Trees", a set of 23 stamps!!  
  It will be fun to see the inspiration found on this hop. 
If you came here from Kimberly Bower'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 on Melinda’s Blog: HERE.  This month we have approximately 19 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the November 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 gold embossed the tree, on Eggplant CS, and looked everywhere for my white and gold twine- no where to be found.  Guess I need to order more - so I grabbed the retired eggplant ribbon.  You could also "dye" the white and gold ribbon using the ink pad.  The smallest rectangle was cut at 2 1/4 by 3 3/4 and I stamped on the darker side,  the next size was cut at 2 1/2 by 4 and I used the lighter side. They were layered on the gold glitter paper (2 3/4 X 4/1/4) and tied with ribbon.  The largest rectangle was cut at 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 and scored around the edge at 1/4 inch and then sanded to pop out the embossed lines. The star on the tree was a Cricut Cut (1/2 inch) from the Flower Market collection. To finish the tree it was trimmed with Bitty Sparkles.  I'm also creating the same card using Pomegranate CS, Peacock CS, and New England Ivy - just don't have the details finished.  Will post ASAP

Now "Hop" on over to Gina Brandstetter's blog  to see her inspiring work!  Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas!  Please leave a comment, we love your encouragement.  Remember, the November SOTM is only available until November 30!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
