Blessings of the First Noel

I have no idea where September went….I basically got zero crafting done….but did do lots of late night Stamptember shopping! I am on a mission to show my new crafting goodies some love and get my card stash built up in the process. With the beginning of each new month, Close To My Heart offers a new Stamp of the Month. This month we have a fun set of holiday themed sentiments. These sentiments are perfect for making quick cards. You can add this set to a qualifying order for only $5 or earn the set for free as a VIP member. Want more details? You can get them all here. Here is a look at the complete set-

The size of these sentiments paired perfectly with the new Evergreen frame from Taylored Expressions. If you missed out on the limited release of the frame, you could easily recreate the look by just inking up your favorite evergreen bough. To create my card, I first inked up my frame in Avocado ink and then went over spots with Pine ink. After stamping, I added another layer of Avocado ink to darken up the green. My sentiment was stamped in Candy Apple ink. The panel was then cut with a stitched frame die. A few red sequins finish off the card.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

  • S2210 Blessings of the First Noel Stamp Set
  • A Thrill of Hope Stamp Set-Taylored Expressions
