Home for the Holidays (October SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  This month the featured stamp set is Home For the Holidays, which includes some adorable images for creating fun holiday cards and tags.  See all the images in the stamp set in the picture at the bottom of this post.    

If you have come here from Melinda's If You Bling It blog, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  

This adorable polar bear image from the Home For the Holidays stamp set is highlighted with just a small amount of color on his cheeks using a Touch Twin marker.  Using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, the "postage stamp" shape was cut as a background.  Since the polar bear has a big smile, I thought it would be a good idea to use some fun brightly-colored paper from the Confetti Wishes kit.  And I really like how the small dots of the patterned paper mimic a heavy snowfall.       

Place a $50 minimum order this month (October 2014) and you are eligible to purchase the Home For the Holidays stamp set for only $5.  It is also available for purchase at $17.95, and will not be available after October. 

Now "Hop" on over to Lori's Saving My ... blog to see her work.  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas.
