Cross Stitch Wishes - January Stamp of the Month

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Cross Stitch Wishes, a set of 13 stamps. If you have come here from Sarita Schraeder's Blog you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

Cross Stitch Wishes is a fun stamp!  It's that fastest way to cross stitch that I have found!  Just choose a color, ink and stamp!   I used to cross stitch alot before I found my new love - scrapbooking and papercrafting.  I created two cards using this stamp.



My first card I wanted to resemble a quilt.   I used a piece of pattern paper from the Sarita kit along with Cotton Candy and Sunset cardstock.  Here is a closer view:



I used another 'stitching' stamp - Stitch Wonder (C1564) for the running stitches across the 'quilt' and around the edges of the Colonial White Cardstock piece in the center.   I used tone on tone stamping for the hearts and cut them out to 'hang' across the thread.   

My next card was a little more simple but it still reminds me of a piece of one of my grandmother's quilt.   


I felt the plain Gypsy cardstock base was just a little too bare so I added the pattern stamping the larger heart and the arrows.  I love the little cross-stitched flowers going across the bottom.   I stamped them in Gypsy, Lagoon and Outdoor Denim. I added bling from the Blue & Green Sparkles and a tied bow from Outdoor Denim Baker's Twine.

I hope you enjoyed these two cards and that they have inspired you to create something too! 

Remember, you can get this stamp set only during the month of January!  If you spend $50, you can get this set for just $5!  It's easy to do with this month's National Papercrafting Month special!  Be sure to check it out on my blog!  www.stampinheaven.ctmh.com
