Welcome to the Twinkle Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Haley's blog you're on the right path. If you get lost or wish to start at the beginning of the hop visit Melinda's blog for the completely list of consultants participating this month.  Or you can keep on hopping and you will see all the artwork, since the hop is one big circle. Now it's time to see my page! 

This is the fun Christmas stamp set Twinkle
This set coordinates with the Artiste Cartridge exclusive to Close to My Heart

This month I did a Christmas card.  I've been having fun making Christmas cards lately and I decided to continue.  I figure if my mojo is going don't mess with it. :)  I think this is a versatile set it is perfect for cards, layouts, gift boxes, and tags.  
I made the cards pine bough, & pine cone using the new Artistry cartridge.  The ornaments are on the Artiste cartridge.  The names are very similar if you have not ordered your Artistry cartridge make sure you double check.
I used embossing to make the stamped images pop, gold foil tape, and gold embossing powder the ribbon is sourced from other. 

Flat view to see the slight dimension I achieved using a bit of thin 3-D tape.  The list of Close to My Heart items I used is listed below. 

  • Cardstock: Chocolate, Cocoa, Cranberry, Fern, New England Ivy, Sweet Leaf, & White Daisy.
  • Exclusive Cricut Cartridges: Artiste & Artistry
  •  Ranger Super Fine Gold embossing powder
  • VersaMark  Ink Pad
  • Gold Foil Tape

appreciate your time viewing my work.  Now it's time to move on to Jacquelin's blog to see her work.  

Thank You for viewing the Hop!   

Create from the Heart,


  1. I love the wow factor "pop" of your pine boughs, they really stand out and make the card look beautiful.

  2. Fabulous card! I love the stamps combined with that Artistry cut.
