October Stamp of the Month: Home for the Holidays

Welcome to October! I absolutely love this month. The colors, the hoodie weather, caramel apples. Love it! But, just like every store you visit, Close to My Heart is already thinking about Christmas. Normally this sort of thing irritates me, but if you plan to make homemade Christmas cards, now is the time to get started! To help you along your way, the October Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Home for the Holidays can be yours for $5 with a $50 purchase! This adorable stamp set coordinates with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, which will help you make gift tags, holiday cards, and fun decor easily!

To celebrate the release of this stamp set, I created a card using Freshly Made Sketches #156.

For the card base, I used the Snowhaven paper pack. Then, I created my own B&T with the candy stamps and then topped it off with two of the image stamps and some shimmer trim.

I left the back of the card with the beautiful sweater pattern found in Snowhaven.

And, because the inside of the card is black, I added a piece of white daisy cardstock with the candies stamped again.

To further help you with your card making endeavors, CTMH is offering a free roll of chevron ribbon with a $50 purchase. More information can be found here: October Campaign
