Stamp of the Month blog hop time!

A new month- a new stamp set!

Join us as we show you a large variety of projects using the November stamp of the month...  if you are coming from Beth's blog you're headed in the right direction but if you are just starting here...no worries!!  Click the link at the bottom of this post to move on to the next blog and eventually you should circle back around to mine ;)

Up first... a photo of the set!  The set is called Illuminate and it is CUTE!!
 
Since I've been in a holiday crafting mood... I took that approach with this stamp set:
 
 
I love how my card turned out...  my only complaint is that I should have left the sentiment alone... I stamped it in Juniper pigment ink and it took about 5 layers of ink to be really nice and bright... then I decided I wanted a "little" sparkle and added glue pen dots to add prisma glitter throughout and duh!!  forgot the pigment stays wet longer... so when I added the glitter...lol... well- you can tell it is COVERED.  OOPS.   
 
Supplies:  Silver glitter paper, Ruby cardstock, Sparkle and shine paper pack, Illuminate stamps, Juniper and Ponderosa Pine and Ruby and black  ink pads.  Juniper pigment ink.  Blender pen, watercolor pencil (yellow)
 
 
Now head on over to Jen's blog to check out her artwork!

Nice how you added the holly leaves to the lamp post to give it a more festive look.
