October Stamp of the Month - Home for the Holidays

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Home For The Holidays, a set of 7 stamps.  This stamps coordinates with images on the Art Philosophy cricut Cartridge.  If you have come here from Dawn Ross'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.

I was immediately drawn to the bear postage stamp when I first saw this set.  I knew right away what I wanted to do this one stamp but it took me a bit longer to design the card around the stamp!  I like to incorporate each Stamp of the Month with my Technique Tuesday class so I finally decided on a Gate Close Card.  This is an easy fold card to do and for this stamp, it turned out to be quite fun.

I stamped the postage image with black ink onto the same shape cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I stamped the same image two more times - once in Glacier ink, and again with Cranberry.
I trimmed off the postage edge on the Glacier piece and added it to the top of the image stamped in black.   Next I trimmed out only the Cranberry scarf and used our new THIN 3D Foam tape to add it on top of the Glacier Image.   (This is the piece I had sitting on my table forever waiting for inspiration to come to me for the rest of the card!).

I used the Snowhaven Paper Pack for this card adding Black Shimmer Trim and White Epoxy stars.  

Here is a look at the inside of the card:

Here I stamped the image first with Cranberry ink directly onto the card.   I stamped the same image again with Glacier Ink and trimmed it just inside the outline.  I adhered it to the top of the cranberry image.

Remember, you can get this stamp for $5 when you purchase $50 in products!  Shop from your favorite consultant or if you don't have one, shop from my website.
