*Family Time* Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Family Time S1911

If you've just arrived here from
then you are on the correct path.

Today I'm sharing two standard-size cards I created
using the SOTM and patterned papers from
THREE different new paper collections...
Cedar and Pine, Holly Jolly, and the Mix-in's,
patterned papers that can be seen HERE!

So you thought this was a Fall/Thanksgiving

themed stamp set? Challenge accepted!!

My featured technique today is:
Ink Streaking
Simply swipe or slide your stamp side-ways
 on the surface of your ink pad, to achieve the
streaked lines across your image when stamped.
To create the poinsettia, I also rolled the outside
edges of the petals on my Candy Apple ink pad
after swiping the stamp across the pad the first time.
Ink colors I used here include:
Intense Black, Candy Apple, Evergreen, and Toffee.
I also used the Cedar & Pine - Cardmaking
(Nutcracker) stamp set (Z3535) to stamp the word
"Christmas" and to stamp/thin cut the holly leaves
I also added to the Christmas Blessings card.

I am the last blogger participating in this blog hop.
If you're just starting out or want to continue on
to see more creativity using this stamp set,
