Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month over 70 CTMH consultants are featuring the October Stamp of the Month, Home For The Holidays, a set of 7 images. If you’ve come from Peachy’s blog you are in the right place. If you’ve started here – no worries!

When I saw this card by Cherry Hill Design I fell in love with it! The polar bear image from the October Stamp of the Month, Home For The Holidays is perfect!

CTMH: Home For The Holidays {Inspired by Cherry Hill Design}

I started with a White Daisy Cardstock and then used the NEW Artfully Sent Cricut® Cartridge with a B&T Duo™ from the Snowhaven Paper Packet. I grabbed another piece of White Daisy Cardstock and created a stencil using the Artbooking Cricut® Cartridge. I used a Round Sponge and Glacier Exclusive Ink™ to create the diagonal backdrop.

I then stamped the polar bear image in CTMH Black Exclusive Ink™ and CTMH Cranberry Exclusive Ink™. I fussy cut the bear and used a sponge dauber and the black ink to make the edges appear crisp. I paper pieced the cranberry scarf onto the bear. I added a piece of black shimmer from the CTMH Black & Grey Glitter Paper and a layer of Slate Polka-Dot Washi Tape {retired} popped up with 3D Foam Tape. {My intentions were to use the Silver Geometric Washi Tape rather than the Slate Washi but I have managed to misplace 4 rolls of washi tape…and the Silver Geometric Washi is included in that missing group!!} The sentiment is from the Magical Moment Stamp Set also stamped in Black Exclusive Ink™. I added a few enamel dots and card done!

CTMH: Pathfinding Papercrafting with Kelly Janes

My project this month is based off this sketch. Starting with a Champagne Cardstock base I used a Waterbrush {retired} and Chocolate Exclusive Ink™ to create a splash pattern on the cardstock. I then added a layer of B&T from the Pathfinding Paper Packet to the top of the layout followed by a chevron zipstrip. Next I added my photos. {My son is so little here! These photos were taken Fall 2011. He was only 3….where has the time gone?!?! This is why I love scrapbooking- I love going through the old photos- seeing and remembering these special moments.} The border along the top edge of the photos is from One-Way Borders Stamp Set in second generation Chocolate Exclusive Ink™. I then used a {retired} tag set for the journaling & title. The title was created using the Vogue Alphabet Stamp Set and Chocolate Exclusive Ink™. The border of tags along the bottom edge of the photos was cut using another B&T Duo™ from the Pathfinding Paper Packet using the Artbooking Cricut® Cartridge. The strip of hearts is another zipstrip {LOVE zipstrips and they are on every B&T Duo™ in every paper packet} I also added multiple Pathfinding chipboard Complements & Pathfinding Assortments throughout the layout for the final touches.
