Twinkle October Stamp of the Month Australiasian blog Hop


Hello and welcome to our Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. We have all been creating with "Twinkle – October 2015 Stamp of the MonthStamp set. If you have arrived here from Leah Cameron - Cameron's Corner then you are in the right place. If you landed here another way, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. Follow the links, check out all the amazing ideas and eventually you'll come right back here to where you started.

Today I would like to share with you my two projects which features the Twinkle – October 2015 Stamp of the Month available exclusively throughout October for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75. 
This is a predominantly Christmassy stamp set but I wanted to show how versatile it is, the stars and lights really stood out to me so I decided to make a party page. 


Using the squiggle I straightened it out on the 2" X 6 1/2" My Acrylix® Block
and stamped it twice on the top of my 12" X 12" White Daisy Cardstock with Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad


I really think this looks like party lights so I used all my fingers to space the lights evenly. I started with the Gypsy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and then the other colours... Lagoon Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and Cotton Candy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad.



 When I was finished the stamping of the Party lights, then I decided that the lights needed to be yellow. So I added ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Golden Yellow Marker  and coloured in the empty lights. I was really happy with the result. 




I added the twinkle stamp in Gypsy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and then decided I needed to finish off the page with some coloured card for photo mats. 


I put in some photo mats in the three main colours as well. I made the mats half an inch larger than the three photo sizes. I used the 12" X 12" Cotton Candy Cardstock12" X 12" Lagoon Cardstock and 12" X 12" Gypsy CardstockI laid out all the paper and then I checked the space at the bottom to see how large the bottom title needed to be. I fitted the 2" X 3 1/2" My Acrylix® Block in the space so I knew how big to put the title. 

I used my new favourite Alphabet called Hopscotch Alphabet to put the word PARTY onto the  2" X 3 1/2" My Acrylix® Block and I put it randomly on angles to make it more party atmosphere. 


To match my PARTY into the theme I coloured the PARTY in ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Golden Yellow Marker as well as the lights. I added the little star clusters around the PARTY with Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad


Then to stick with the Christmas Theme I decided to make a quick Christmas card also. 

I started by cutting the cricut shapes, 24 fit on my mat without using Cricut Craftroom. *Note: If I had used Cricut Craftroom I could have fit heaps more on my 12" X 12" White Daisy Cardstock page. 


I printed the outside on the Cricut shape with Topiary Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and then the Merry Everything in Cranberry Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad



Next I cut a piece of 12" X 12" Black Cardstock and then I embossed it with my Big Shot and Confetti Embossing FolderThen I sanded the confetti with the Sanding Kit.To finish off my card, I put Red Shimmer Trim because everything needs BLING!! This card is going to be added to my Card Buffet classes in October. 


Remember this great stamp set Twinkle – October 2015 Stamp of the Month is only available throughout October from your Close to My Heart Consultant
