October SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring October’s Stamp of the Month, Very Merry Christmas, a set of 11 stamps.  If you have came here from Nancy’s Blog, you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participating consultants here.

All of the shapes from Very Merry Christmas coordinate with the Cricut Artistecartridge.  So simple to mass produce images for the upcoming holiday season.  I cut my main image with the coordinating Artiste ornament shape.  I then stamped three different images. I stamped one image on New England Ivy, one on Cranberry and one on Colonial White.  I stamped the New England Ivy and Cranberry with Versamark Ink and embossed in clear ink.  I stamped the Colonial White with Cashmere Pigment Ink and embossed in clear.  I then cut out the individual pieces and paper pieced the ornament together.  The ornament has great dimension in person!
