Holiday Magic Blog Hop....

I can't believe that I'm playing with Christmas stamps and my little part of Texas just reached the 100th day of triple digit weather for THIS YEAR...that's 100 days out of roughly 270...HOTTTTT!

This month's stamp set gave me a reprieve from all that HEAT...I turned down the A/C and got to work.

I'm hopping this month with over 50 other Consultants and we're all using "Holiday Magic"...

Cute, huh....

If you've come from Wendy's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping right along 'till you get back to where you started...

I decided to finish a card that I started quite a while's a standard size card plus a  I cut the focal point and the sentiment frame using the WONDERFUL Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge...although I could've cut the little flowers using it as well, I decided to free-hand those but cutting spiral circles and rolling them up.

I random stamped the argyle image from All Hallow's Eve stamp set onto Sweet Leaf cardstock...then I used Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint and a dry brush to distress the edges. 

And of course...I had to decorate the inside using the same focal point as on the front for symmetry...

I hope you like!!!  
Don't forget to hop on over to Tamatha's Blog and see what she's done with the stamp set.

You only have a month to get your hands on this CUTE Christmas stamp set...if you don't have a consultant to help you out, leave me a note and I'll let you know how you can get if for only $5!!!

  2. I am obsessed with Pearl Paint recently - cute card!
