October Stamp of the Month

October Stamp of the Month - Share the Magic

OOPS!  I just realized I didn't post this month's Stamp of the Month!  Here it is, along with the card we made this month in card class.  I used the new holiday paper - Mistletoe.  It's beautiful!

SUPPLIES USED:
Mistletoe Level 2 paper pack (X7130B)
Share the Magic, October Stamp of the Month (D1244)
New England Ivy Card Stock
Cranberry Card Stock
Archival Black Stamp Pad
Cranberry Stamp Pad (candy cane)
Cocoa Stamp Pad (bear outline)
Markers:  Cranberry, Creme Brulee, Parchment (for face), Desert Sand (Bear)
Texture Tools (Z1298) - Sea Sponge (on a stick)
Black Extra fine Sharpie
Round Punches: 1 1/4" and 2 1/2"
Additional Option:  Liquid Glass and Glitter for his fur OR Liquid Applique OR Glitz Glitter Gel

Here's another sample that I got in a swap, which uses the reindeer.  I think it would be really cute if you put a big red sparkle or Liquid Glass and/or glitter on Rudolph's nose.  :)

Designed by Eileen Black-Rodriguez

Eileen also embellished the stars with the new Mocha Opaques (pearls). 

You could easily use any or all of the papers in the Mistletoe paper pack and make a bunch of these cards...and they would different, but still beautiful.  The nice part is that you're only using a 3" square of B&T (patterned) paper.  Very efficient with your resources!
