CTMH September Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop

Family is Forever is September's Stamp Of The Month. This is a Constant Campaign product which can be yours for only $5 with every $50 purchase at Close to My heart!

If you came from Wendy's Blog, then you are in the right place! Check out Melinda's Blog for the complete list of the 80s plus participants (woot!) in this month's hop. I decided to go with a "Love" theme with this month's stamp set, Family Is Forever.

The color scheme is inspired by the White Stripes' color scheme of red, white and black. All the die cuts and the card can be found on page 42 of the Cricut Artiste Cartridge. I used Black Cardstock, Ruby Cardstock, Pear and White Daisy Cardstock for this project. The measurements that I used are as follows: card, belly band and sleeve: 5 1/2", sihouettes: 1 3/4", and frame: 2 1/2". I used some Sparkles Clear Assortment, and a flourish from Sparkles Black Flourishes-Small as my embellishments. I embossed the card sleeve with Damask Embossing Folder. I made some mini roses at 2" using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for the belly band. All images were stamped using Ruby Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad.
