Twinkle - October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month, over 40 consultants will be showcasing the Twinkle Stamp Set.  This set is only available during the month of October.  It can be purchased for $17.95, or only $5 with a $50 purchase
If you have come here from Donna'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.  The hop 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!

The first card uses the string of lights stamps.  One thing that is fabulous about Close to My Heart acrylic stamps is the ability to bend them to fit your needs.  The "string" portion of the lights was a somewhat straight line.  Before attaching to the stamping block, I bent the stamp in a 90 degree angle to hug the top and right side edges of the card.  
While primarily designed as a holiday stamp set, I wanted to showcase one way to use the stamp for another purpose.  Each time I looked at the "Twinkle" stamp, I would sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" in my head!  This card uses the beautiful Georgie paper and it's color combination to create a baby themed card. The star background was created using the new Charming Cascades stamp set!  That little multi-colored star at the top is from the Zoe complements pack!
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my cards. Remember, this stamp can be purchased for only $5 with any $50 purchase!
