February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Hello friends! 
It’s an exciting time of year!  In a few hours, the new Spring & Summer Idea Book will be launching.  Tonight we’re featuring the first stamp of the month from it!  This blog post is part of a ‘blog hop,’ which means that you can see artwork for this stamp set created by over 50 consultants this month from the same stamp set.  It’s a big circle so once you start hopping, you’ll end up back at my blog.    If you’re on the right track, you’ve just come from {Alyson’s Blog}!
I created this card with the new Ivy Lane Paper pack and the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  Ivy Lane will be available as of 2/1/14 on my website before then, the link may not work.
I cut the card at 5” twice, once in Colonial White cardstock and again in Ivy Lane.  I trimmed the back of the card off the patterned paper cut and put it back on my mat and cut the frame.  I love having double sided paper!  It made this card go together so easily. 
You’ll notice that I stacked the sentiment, “Hey foxy.”  I actually cut the stamp!  Yes, you’re allowed to do that.  It will go back together just fine if I want it to.  It’s so much easier than masking when using two colors. 
I embellished this card with the new purple glitter gems and a smaller one of the Small Sparkle Flourishes.  I like the small packet of flourishes, you get six different flourishes in one packet and they’re just right for cards. 

The foxes peek through the card from the inside.  I used Hollyhock & Cocoa Exclusive Inks on the inside of the card. 

Here’s how the card looks completely closed.  Too cute! 
I can’t wait to play with this set more!   I hope to make some friendship cards using a sentiment or two from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  Come back for a friendship version of this card later this month. 

This month’s set is 9 fun stamps.  You can purchase this set alone for $17.95 or get it for just $5 with a $50 purchase. 
The new Idea Book will be online at midnight tonight.  If you want your own copy, let me know when we can meet to get one to you.  If you need one shipped, click here to request one

That’s all from me, please hop on over to {Katy’s blog} to see her artwork. 
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a cute "peek-a-boo!" Thanks for the tip on cutting the card twice to get the front the way you want it.

    1. You're welcome! By cutting the frame out of the back of the card, there's very little waste.

  2. Love the design of the card, and the foxes peeking through. Great card.

  3. I absolutely have got to copy the design of your card! I love the cute little foxes peeking through.

  4. I always forget about those cards on the AP cartridge. This is adorable!
