What else could there be in January? Well......... we can't forget that each month, there is a SPECIAL stamp set that you can purchase for only $5 (retail value of $17.95) with your $50 order. Here is January's Stamp of the Month, Cross Stitch Wishes:
|The hearts have a red line around them. That means that the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge has these exact cuts on it. The page number and size is printed to the left of the hearts.|
The first thing I would do with this stamp set would be to stamp directly on some muslin or linen and do some actual cross stitching with red embroidery floss! Then I would frame it in a hoop or maybe one of our Bracket picture frames, and dress up the frame with some of my paper flowers or rosettes that I love to make.
I would stamp "you are the best" in the middle, and stitch the little heart banner at the bottom of this set underneath the sentiment and above the sentiment. I wish I had the stamp set to show you how, but you get the idea! Here is a little "digital mock-up" of my idea (above).
Here are some cards made by my fellow (very talented) consultants:
|Cute card from Stamp Til Dawn. I like how she stamped the hearts on the red background.|
This 4 1/2” square card design comes from Krista's Crafty Corner, and she has used the Close to My Heart WISHES how-to book card found on page 94 which is called “Curtain Call”.
If you want to take advantage of this darling stamp set, which is perfect for Valentine's Day, it is only available through the end of January, 2014.
