Hello and welcome aboard our Comfort and Joy Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.Megan's Blog then you are in the right place.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s October Featured collection, Comfort and Joy.
I love the Comfort and Joy Cardmaking Kit, and once I had made up the cards I wanted to find other ways to use the stamp set.
I really love the Christmas tree as I prefer a more traditional look, and so I paired the tree with one of the fun tartan patterns from the Comfort and Joy Picture My Life Cards.
I stamped one tree in New England Ivy Ink, and then stamped again to create a second generation lighter colour of the same ink. I stamped the sentiment from the card kit using Scarlet Ink, and the 'sending' was actually from the October Stamp of the Month, With All My Love.
Black Shimmer Trim behind the trees to anchor them to the card. My finishing touch was to use the Carnation Red Liquid Pearls (which comes in the cardmaking kit, yay!) to add some red decoraitons to the tree to make it more Christmassy.
This exclusive collection is only available during October. If you do not have a consultant please contact me or place an order here.
I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Kimmy Adds Sparkle.
