December SOTM Blog Hop!

WELCOME to my blog and thank you for joining us for our December Stamp of the Month blog hop featuring the December SOTM - "Mad About You" S1112!
If you've just joined me from Paige's Blog,
then you are the right path!
First, I'm sharing a standard size card featuring the Roxie papers X7140B (above) with Cocoa ink distressing and our 1.25" wide Dark Chocolate Striped Grosgrain ribbon Z1617. This sweet and simple card could be given for Valentine's Day or any day that you want to tell someone that you like them!
Next I'm sharing another standard size card featuring the Roxie papers X7140B with New England Ivy cardstock (above). This time I've used the stamp set in an unexpected way to create a Christmas card. I simply cut three 2" hearts and one 1" heart from Colonial White cardstock using my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. Then I stamped them with the "heart" stamps in this set and New England Ivy ink and layered them to create my Christmas tree! (remember, you can click on my photos to see them larger!)
Finally, here is a view of all of the stamp images that are included in this stamp set (please notice the 4 images outlined in red are the shapes that can be cut using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartride - so fun!! ):
Now you can continue on with the rest of our Blog Hop to see more creative artwork using the "Mad About You" stamp set by visiting Katy's Blog next! Enjoy!!
