December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Mad About You

Welcome to December's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  Thanks for stopping by!  

This month there are over 56 Close to my Heart Consultants participating and happy to show you there wonderful artwork featuring the Mad About You Stamp of the Month.

I really liked this stamp set once I started playing with it.  You could sure use for more than just Valentine's.  I could see it being used on a girls' page.

If you have come here from Melinda's Blog then you are on the right track!  If not that's ok, this blog hop makes a full circle so you will be able to see all the artwork!

Here is what the stamp set looks like:

Here is what I made using this stamp set:  A card box

Here are the Materials that I used:
CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Mad About You Stamp of the Month
Desert Sand & Smoothie Ink
Roxie Paper
Kraft Cardstock
Opaques- Mocha
Misc. Pewter brads and 3-d Foam tape

Here is how I made this cute little Treat box:
I cut the 3d Heart box at 8".  I did Font layer, Shift, Heart 1, Cut
Circle for "You're Sweet": Circle 4 cut at 2"
Outside circle cut in Roxie Paper at 2" - Layer, Circle 4, Cut
Hearts - Shift, Heart 1, cut these were cut at 1"

I did cut the box from Kraft CS first and then cut the Roxie.  I thought this would make it a little sturdier.  If you cut it out just plain CS and then decorate it you would probably be ok with out the extra layer.

The handle I used the top of the Roxie paper and then cut another 1/2" strip from the Roxie paper and glued together so that it covered the Paper Pack information.

You could probably cut these a little smaller if you were doing Valentine treats for your child's class.  I cut mine large enough so that you could see it well for this hop.
