December SOTM Blog Hop - Reindeer Crossing

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring December's SOTM, which is Reindeer Crossing, a set of 10 stamps.  If you have come here from Darlys Recker's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

 This month we have 16 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

 I had a lot of fun playing with this stamp set.  I have created 3 very different projects for you using this set.

To start, here is a Christmas card.  I have stamped the sleigh in Black Intense ink and then colored it in using my small waterbrush and Black, Candy Apple and Saffron ink pads.  I then added some clear shimmer brush to the red on the sleigh.  I used the Make it from Your Heart Vol 4 book for the pattern for this card.  The paper used was Cedar & Pine, White Daisy and Peach cardstock. The edges of the cardstock were inked with Peach ink.  

I have created this ornament using the Custom Ornament thin cut set, White & Gold Skinny Ribbon, Sapphire shimmer brush, AlmondBlack ink and White Daisy cardstock.   I am in love with this ornament thin cut set.

Lastly, I have a bookmark.  I have been wanting to get into Bible journaling, and this stamp set seemed perfect for this verse.  I used the branches stamp to stamp around the edges in Evergreen ink. The deer are stamped in Almond ink and then I painted with the Bluebird ink pad and the Medium Flat waterbrush.  (I forgot to clean it after using it last time so it had some purplish color in it too.)  The S is a little messed up as my kids were fighting right at that moment and I made it backwards.  I fixed it to the best of my ability.

I hope you enjoyed these projects.  I would love to hear what you think of them.
