Home for the Holidays S1410 : CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

 Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Britt's page  then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 

Today I would like to share with you this set of tags and a peak-a-boo card that features October Stamp of the Month ....Home for the Holidays available exclusively throughout October for $27 or for just $5 when you spend $75. 

When I looked at this stamp set I loved it but I struggled with an idea that would pass just the regular tag or baubles. This set is great for the Cricut lovers in that most of the images have a Cricut cut....just cut and easy and saves time with fussy cutting. Check out the Art Philosophy Cricut collection exclusive to CTMH.

One of my greatest joys, right now, is a 17 month old grandson and one of his greatest joys are cards or books that have flaps or peak-a-boo's so check out my Peak a boo....flap gift card that is sure to delight all our little people.

One of our amazing products for both scrapbookers and card makers are 'Flip Flaps'.....they are clear pockets that have an adhesive strip that enables you to add additional photos or decorations. The little tag stamp that says....'Do not open until 25th December' was just great for a flip flap. When you lift the flap you see the cute polar bear all ready for Christmas.

This is the basic card stamped with Outdoor denim ink and mounted on Outdoor denim cardstock. Take a 2.25 x 2 inch piece of glacier cardstock and stamp the tag image onto it in the smallest flip flap....stamp the polar bear on a piece of 2.5 x 2.5 glacier cardstock....this was precut on the Art Philosophy cartridge...details are listed on the stamp carrier sheet. Add the flip flap to the polar bear image...he is now hiding!!!.....then mount the whole piece on a 3x3 card base.

If you want to add a bit of sparkle then mount the flip flap onto white cardstock and using the red shimmer trim place a 3 inch piece on each edge...mitre the corners so it looks neater.

Silver shimmer trim also adds a sparkle on the ruby cardstock.....
As you will see there are some amazing projects that you can make using this Stamp of the Month so make sure you purchase $75 worth of products so you can get yours for $5.
