October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Yuletide Joy



Welcome to October's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set "Yuletide Joy" - a set of 7 stamps. This set of stamps is perfect for Christmas and the approaching holiday season - with 4 great seasonal stamps including a stocking, a bell ornament, a present and a star plus three great sentiments. The bloggers along this blog hop will certainly show you many ways to use this awesome stamp set, so sit back and enjoy the tour. 

You should have arrived here from Priscilla Gotham's blog. 


If you get lost, a list of all blogs can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog.

The stamp set looks like this.

I really like non-traditional colours for Christmas (not to say that I don't like red and green as well). I chose to use the bell ornament and created two identical cards (except the sentiment) using two different colour schemes. 

For this first card, I used the "Love" ribbon from the Whimsy Ribbon Pack but I used the reverse side of the ribbon.  



I hope you enjoyed my projects. 

The next blog on the hop is Gina Brandstetter's blog.
I'm sure she has a wonderful project to share with you.

You can get this stamp set for just $6 this month with a $50 purchase.
