October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Home for the Holidays
If you're a crafter, then you know how important it is to stay ahead of the holidays, so please don't be offended to find Christmas here before Halloween! The October Close To My Heart stamp of the month has traditionally been a great stamp set for the winter holiday season, and this year is no exception! Welcome to the October stamp of the month blog hop featuring the Home for the Holidays stamp set! (If you're already hopping, then you've arrived from Krista's blog. When you're ready to leave here, you'll visit Michelle Stewart's blog next.)
My first card uses the Yuletide Carol paper pack and color palette.
Don't you love that bear? To create him, I first cut out the postage stamp with my CTMH/Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I stamped the image in New England Ivy on there. Next, I stamped the image again in Glacier and then again in Ruby. I cut out the Glacier rectangle and then fussy cut the Ruby scarf. It was easy to assemble once all the pieces were cut, and let me tell you, that Ruby scarf makes the bear POP.
Here's a card I featured way back in August using the Snowhaven collection. Are you ready for Christmas crafting yet? You'll get tons of ideas along this hop, so go see what Michelle has in store for you.
