Dec 2012 SOTM

Can you believe that December is here already?  I opened up my first box from our Advent Exchange this morning (yay!) and am ready to listen to Christmas tunes almost 24/7!  I'm thrilled to be sharing with you our December Stamp Of The Month, a fabulous set of sentiments by Hero Arts!  These whimsical sayings are a perfect finishing touch for your Christmas cards & tags and I had fun working with a guest DT member, our fabulous friend Tanya!   We used the vintage chic City Sidewalks collection by Pink Paislee for our cards this month.

First up is a card I made- I kept it pretty simple with a beautiful Memory Box ornament die, and a sentiment double stamped in green & black.
Here's a quick tag I made as well with an inky Distressed background and a simple touch of bling and holly leaves.  I cut apart the sentiment & rearranged it to fit better in the space I had!  I love that you can do that with clear stamps :)
Tanya let the inspiration flow and created these next three fabulous cards!  This first features a snowman by Kraftin' Kimmie
This one features a Tim Holtz reindeer die cut from a coffee sleeve & glammed up :)
and lastly, the fabulous new Poinsettia die & embossing folder, also by Tim Holtz!
Aren't they pretty?  This sentiment set is bold & beautiful, I think it'll find it's way onto a lot of my projects this season!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Advent Season... hope December is full of wonderful, creative days!
