October SOTM Blog Hop - Holiday magic

Hello and welcome to the CTMH October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.
If you have arrived here from viewing Angela Tutton's fun creations then you are hopping right along.

I know it's only October but it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here,
and it's just in time to get some fantastic ideas for your holiday projects this year.

The October Stamp of the Month set Holiday Magic is so much fun.
This set includes 18 mix and match holiday images for unlimited possibilities. 

This month for my swap I was assigned the Typeset paper pack to go with this set. You may not think of the Typeset papers as being at all "Christmasy", but I actually really enjoy thinking outside the box and using papers and materials in unexpected ways. Here is what I came up with.

I wanted to create a  vignette, something like the decorated shop windows you see during the holiday season.  I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the "window" as well and the trees. It makes everything so much easier. Too bad the sleigh and rudders weren't on the cartridge as well. I would never have attempted to make multiples of a card like this with so many cut pieces before Art Philosophy, but now it's possible!

Supply List:
