SOTM Bloghop for December 2013

Welcome to the December 2013 Stamp of the Month Bloghop!  You are visiting our bloghop with 55 participating bloggers.  We are glad to have you joining us!!  The featured stamp set is "Special Care", a set of 6. 

If you came here from Judy Burger's Blog, you are on the right track!  Or you may have started here and will circle back around to hers later.  Just in case you get lost along the way, you can go to for a list of this month's hoppers.

I saw the potential of baby cards with this stamp set.  So I have created one to share.

I used the following product to make this card:

Babycakes Paper Pack
Buttercup Cardstock
White Daisy Cardstock
Slate Washi Tape
Chocolate Stamp Pad
Sunset Stamp Pad
Slate Stamp Pad
Sunset Marker
Twist Ties
Babycakes WOTG
Neutral Baker's Twine
December SOTM
Tombow Adhesive, Glue Dots, 3-D Foam

I didn't do anything fancy except for the technique to make the Washi Tape act like a ribbon.  Here is a video of how you can do this and a few other things with Twist Ties:

Now you know my neat trick!  It's time to hop on over to Jen Rubio's Blog.  But be sure to order this stamp set during December since it's only available then.  Click here to order yours on my OBA.  With a qualifying order you can get it for $5.

Enjoy the rest of the bloghop!  And Merry Christmas!!!  Thanks for stopping by!  Nancy

Card Kits for December 2013

Christmas is now just around the corner...are you ready?  I am not, but I am working on getting there!  I've been eyeing some items to give at my favorite new store.  I have selected some new recipes for the annual, Christmas cookie bake in my kitchen.  And I have cards designed and ready to make for my holiday card mailing.  I will actually make about 80 cards by hand.

To make things a wee bit easier for you, I have two, new Christmas card kits using CTMH's "Frosted" papers plus a birthday card kit using "Babycakes".  I am sure you have a birthday to celebrate between now and January 2014.  If not, just return to this post when you need one and order the kit then.

Each kit comes with full, assembly directions and precut papers and embellishments to make five cards.  If you want all three kits, you can order them all and I may be able to ship them together for less than ordering one at a time.

So the kits are ...
