February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring February's Stamp of the Month, which is "Home Sweet Home", a set of 4 stamps. 

If you have came here from Priscilla's Blog at Priscilla's Paperie, you are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This month we have approximately 61 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs.  This is simple to do -- just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I decided to make a set of cards using our Clementine paper pack:

I really love this new stamp set we are featuring!  I decided to use the same theme or format for each of the four stamped images for my project.  These are a standard A2 size card measuring 4 1'4" x 5 1/2".  The first layer of the card was cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  I cut the house using our fabulous Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. You can find the image on page 42, C2, Shift, < House > cut at 3 3/4" x 5 1/2" using Saddle cardstock, a coordinating color with our Clementine paper pack.  I then random stamped the same sentiment on the front of the card on the house with Saddle ink to give it a little extra "texture".  I used Saddle ink. On the first card, I also used some Hemp for the little pennants that I adhered to the corner of the card.  

I cut those pennants using the Art Philosophy:  page 29, A9, < Banner2 > cut at 1" out of Sunset cardstock, another coordinating cardstock color.

The hearts on the last card were also cut using the Art Philosophy:  page 26, A6, Shift, < Heart1 > cut at 1".

This is such a versatile stamp set.  I will be making additional projects using this stamp set and posting them on my blog throughout the month of February.
