October Home for the Holidays Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! 


This month I am following {Adeline Brill's Blog.}   We have over 70 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.   If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.                                                                                                              

The October Stamp of the Month is entitled Home for the Holidays  (S1410) (Set of 7). Here is a picture of this stamp set:





This stamp set feels like Christmas.  The bear makes me happy!  Love the home stamp.  I will be creating something special with it soon.  I was scrapbooking yesterday, trying to decide what to make.  I woke up with this design in my head and just had to decide what color to back it with.  Here is what I came up with.




Can I say that Red and Black are my favorite colors for Christmas?  I love the pop of the colors.  Never in a million years did I expect to back it with Whisper Cardstock.  But it just worked.  This card is mostly paper.  The only embellishments used were some Bitty Sparkles on the sky behind the bear and some liquid glass on the bear's nose, eyes, and ears.  

The card is 5" x 7".  I cut the large black frame using the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, pg 24, set at 4.75" width and 6.75" height.  

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to leave me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Sheila Bennett's Blog.}

  13. I'm a new CTMH consultant in NZ and in looking for inspiration for workshops I came across this blog hop! I love this card. My cusotmers are all new to stamping, scrapping and card making and this looks so effective and not too difficult for them as well.
