Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring October's SOTM, Holiday Magic, a set of 18 stamps.  If you have come here from BETH NAUMANN'S BLOG, you are on the right path!

Christmas in October you say?  Actually October is the perfect month to get this stamp. If you love to make your own Christmas cards, you can get started early.   I have to say, it was a little hard for me to start these cards since I've been in such a 'Fall Mode' lately.  But once I started the first card, ideas just kept coming to create more.  So I've got three cards to share with you!

I used our Clear Cards to create these cards.   Clear cards are so much fun to create!   I used Cranberry and Olive for my 'traditional' Christmas colors.   Seems like these are my go to colors when I create Christmas cards but they are my favorites!   Here is a closer look at each card:

The stocking card is my favorite.   I used our new Pin Clips (Z1612) for stocking hangers 
and ran Natural Hemp (Z280) through them.

With the Christmas Tree card, you can see how the front of my card covers the inside sentiment.
I used our new Foundry Metal Ribbon Slides ( Z1460) on the cranberry ribbon.  
The tree is adorned with sparkles from our Red, Pink & Purple Assortment (Z1326) 

 I stamped the snowflakes with grey wool ink and added 
a dot of Silver Glitz Glitter Gel (Z1482) to give them sparkle.  
Pearl Opaque Adhesive Gems (Z1336) round out the corners of the card.

What a great set of stamps!  Remember, you can ONLY get it during the Month of October!  It is just $5.00 when you purchase $50 in Close To My Heart Products  That is a great discount off of the retail price of $17.95.   Contact me to order yours today!
