October SOTM-Home For The Holidays Blog Hop


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! This blog hop is one big circle so you can join in the fun by clicking the link at the bottom of my post to take you to the next consultant and work your way around!! If you happen to get lost along the way there is a full list of participants on Melinda Everitt’s blog.

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!
