December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop and Blog Candy!

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for December!

All artwork on the hop will feature December's SOTM, "Notice The Details"  a set of 41 stamps! If you have come here from {Helen's blog} you are on the right path!  Click the link at the end of my post to hop to the next blog.  If you hop through them all, you'll see over 65 examples of great SOTM artwork!



Here's a look at the stamp set - "Notice The Details". 





As an added bonus this month, I'll be randomly selecting one person to win ALL 3 of my blog hop cards!  To be entered, just post a comment below.  Receive a second entry if you sign up to be a follower of my blog!  I'll draw a winner at 11:59 pm, Dec 1, and post the winner on Dec 2nd. 


This month my cards all feature the same 5 basic products (besides the SOTM).  They are CTMH Notebook Paper, Basic Craft Buttons, Rub-ons (Love Letter and Nature's Ambiance), Black Waxy Flax and 3d foam tape.



Card 1.  Size: 5.5" x 4.25" - The star and the whole piece of cardstock wrapped in waxy flax is popped up with 3d foam.  My wonderful hubby was the inspiration for this card.  He has been spoiling me rotten lately!


Card 2.  Size 4.25" x 5.5".  The hearts were stamped in the date boxes, and colored with tulip ink.  I also used a rub-on on as decoration on one of the buttons.  I especially love the torn notebook paper stamp.  It just completes the urban chic look I was going for on this card.


Card 3.  Size: 3"x3".  This fun little gift card was so fast and easy to whip up!  I just used a bunch of my scraps.  Now it is the perfect gift enclosure card.  The flower is a rub-on on the blue dot paper (reverse side of the pink and black dot paper), and it is popped on 3d foam.


I hope you enjoyed my cards!  Don't forget to post a comment.  One lucky poster will win all 3 cards!!!

Now hop on over to {Beth's blog}!  She is sure to inspire you with her incredible artwork!
