The October Stamp of the Month, Home for the Holidays (S1410) is an adorable holiday themed set of 7 stamps that coordinate with the exclusive Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. This fun set has so many possibilities...scrapbook pages, cards, gift tags, and more! It is also the perfect companion to our new Snowhaven paper packet!
I couldn't resist this opportunity to play with the brand new Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge as I created with the Home for the Holidays set. Just as I'd hoped I found the perfect card base in Artfully Sent to go with the adorable bear "postage stamp" image in the stamp set.
The postage stamp image was created with a series of paper piecing. I stamped the image a total of 4 times - one time each in Glacier, Cranberry and Black and then once again in Glacier on the postage stamp shape cut from Art Philosophy.
I chose to adhere the Cranberry scarf flat, but you could certainly add another pop of 3-D Foam Tape.
After cutting the card base from the Artfully Sent cartridge, I used a touch of Red Shimmer Trim and the diagonal striped "zip strip" found on one of the papers in the Snowhaven kit. I also added a few Sparkles on the black background of the postage stamp image and the 4 snowflakes on the card base.
Here are a couple additional pieces of artwork from our amazing Art Department at Close to My Heart!
Time to hop along and see what Lalia Harris has created to get us in the creative holiday spirit!
