Home Sweet Home - February Stamp of the Month

February 1 is finally here and you are going to LOVE the new products in the Spring Summer Idea Book!   February brings us a new Stamp of the Month fresh out of this book!  This set of four lovely stamps will be great for cards, layouts, home decor and gift items! This stamp is just $5 when you place a $50 order of Close To My Heart products!



If you have come here from my  Laila Harris' blog you are on the right track!  The Blog Hop is one big circle so you can start here and go all the way around until you come back to me!  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participating consultants HERE.  

We have over 60 consultants participating in the hop this month!  Just look for each link to the next blog at the end of each post.  You will surely be inspired but all the art you will see!

I created 4 items with this stamp - a 6x6 Canvas wall art, framed art, gift bag and a card.  I will show each one individually.



I love this frame!  This was is a 3-D frame that I had sitting around the house with an old picture of my girls in it.  I decided to remove the picture and use one of the stamps as the focal point of the frame.  I cut the shape from the Artiste Cricut cartridge (Z1790) and stamped the phrase with pigment inks - Cocoa and Barn Red.  Inking just the portion of the stamp I wanted with the pigment inks are very easy because the pads are just 1" square.  I added Just Blooms Floret Paper Shapes (Z1764) and new Durable Artisan Studs (Z1816).


My next project is this card.  I used the new Distressed Backgrounds (D1544) stamp with Outdoor Denim ink to create a hounds tooth pattern paper.  I stamped the phrase in Barn Red ink and then again in Outdoor Denim and Honey.  I cut out the "is" banner and "YOU" and used foam tape to place it over the Barn Red portion of the stamped imaged.  I added 3 buttons from the new Wooden Mini Medley Collection (Z1837) and Burlap ribbon (Z1760).


Here is another NEW PRODUCT!  The My Creations 6x6 Canvas Display (Z1818).  Because this is a home decor item and would be hanging on a wall, I used our pigment inks.  These will not fade in the sunlight.  I used Barn Red with the hounds tooth Distressed Backgrounds stamp.  My phrase is stamped with Olive, Barn Red and Honey.  Again, I used some Wooden Mini Medley Accents with Burlap Ribbon.  Check out that little flower flourish! I've already got another set of the cute little Wooden Mini-Medley's on order!


And last, another NEW PRODUCT!  I love these My Creations Muslin Drawstring bags (Z1822)!  They make great housewarming gift bags (PERFECT size for the small Scentsy scents)!  I stamped my bag with Indian Corn Blue and Olive Ink. I masked the center of the bag with the image stamped on a piece of scrap paper, Then used the leafy stamp from In The Background (D1540) stamp set to create a border around my "Home Sweet Home".  

I hope you've been inspired!  I've enjoyed sharing a few of the exciting new products with you  Everything can be found in our brand new Spring Summer Idea Book which is available FEBRUARY 1.  Check it out on my website at www.stampinheaven.ctmh.com
