Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - November Illuminate

Welcome to the November Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  I am so in love with this stamp set it is my favorite by far in this Idea Book :)  
If you are coming from Alyson's blog you are in the right place!  

This month's stamp set is Illuminate a fabulous collection of lanterns!  You can purchase this set from your CTMH consultant or off my website from November 1st through November 30th  for $17.95 or you can place an order of $50 with your CTMH consultant or on my website and get this set for $5! 
I created this Triple layer card with this stamp set

I took one of our super durable page protectors and cut it down to 3 x 4.  On the top layer I put the red bow from the Yultide stamp set.  I also used the new Sparkle & Shine Holiday paper pack (which I love btw LOVE LOVE LOVE)

 Sorry about the horrible chipped nails - gosh you would think I could at least clean them up once in a while.  I'm the kind of girl who paints her nails once a month and when all the polish is chipped clean off I paint them again.  Anyway, The next layer I used the Stayz On ink to stamp the "snowflakes" and added some mini gems. 

The final layer is the cardstock base where I stamped the lantern and final sentiment.  

Wishing you a holiday that sparkles & shines!  Thanks for stopping by :)

Now it is time to hop on over to the talented Gina's blog and see what she created with this stamp set!

  1. I really like your card idea but I am having a hard time trying to wrap my head around how you actually created this card.

  2. I took the cut 3x4 pieces of our page protectors and the laid one on top of the other - then I did each layer and attached them both to a 4x5 1/2 piece of cardstock and used washi tape and adhesive to paste them down at the top. I'll try to get a video but I've been having issues with my recorder :(

  3. Aren't you a fancy gal? :) Love it!! thanks so much for sharing your creativeness!!!!
