Art Philosophy Christmas Card-Merry Christmas!!!


This was a real simple and fun card to make.  I used the Art Philosophy Cartridge, a few Stamp Sets, a couple inks and cardstock from Close To My Heart.  The blue on the ornament is colored with Blue Suede Shoes Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels.  The red ribbon is probably from Michael's and the cute boy in the picture is my son Jack. 

Don't forget that yesterday was the first day you could order the 'Rock the Block' from Close To My Heart.  It's a fabulous set.  The stamp set is exclusive, you can only get it until the end of January and the blocks are adorable. 

If you had your eye on the December Stamp of the Month, December is almost over.  And this stamp set is a must have if you want to make your own Valentine Cards.  Just think about how much fun you had making your Christmas cards this year.  And how happy everyone was to receive them.  You could do it all over again for Valentine's.  :)

God Bless everyone this Holiday Season!

Embellished paper banners on skewer sticks.

A closer look.

Distressed with ink, stamped, paper flower, and stamped epoxy "sticker."

Ribbon and skewer sticks misted with Tattered Angels Harvest Orange.    

Most of the products I used were from Close To My Heart.  The paper is Mischief, the stamp sets are Backdrop-Charmed and All Hallows Eve.  The paper flowers are made from the Mischief paper and cut out using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart.  I also cut the banner pieces out using Art Philosophy.  The "epoxy stickers" were made using Epiphany Crafts Oval Bubble Cap maker.  And as I mentioned above I glimmer misted the ribbon and skewer sticks with Harvest Orange from Tattered Angels.

Project Using September's Stamp of the Month and Upcoming Blog Hop

I wanted to share with you a gift I made for some special people using the September Stamp of the Month.  Besides the stamp set I used the My Creations Card Box, Elemental Complements Dimensional Elements, and Elemental Paper Line, all products of Close To My Heart.  Here are a few pictures.  Enjoy!

The top and front of the box.  (I covered the eyes on the pic, didn't know if his family wanted their child all over the net.)

The box is filled with matted pictures and stamped cardstock for important memories to be recorded.

A different view.  Plenty of room for more mementos and pictures.

Also, September is ending soon and so is the National Stamping Month.  That means that there is only a few days left to get a FREE Double Stamp Set from CTMH when you order $75 in products. 

This coming weekend on October 1st and 2nd I will be participating in a Blog Hop.  The Host of the Hop is Angela Holt from Angela's Craft Corner.  The Hop will start with her blog at  The Bling Theory.  It is a Halloween/Fall Blog Hop and I will be GIVING AWAY a CTMH Stamp Set.  In honor of Halloween I will give away the "Wicked" SOTM from last month.  That's right, you can't buy it any more but you can WIN it.  All you have to do is visit my blog during the hop on Oct 1st or 2nd, leave a comment on the Blog Hop post, and become a follower.  Come back to my blog within a week to see if you won.  Also, be sure to check out all the other fabulous blogs featuring their projects and maybe win some other great giveaways. 

Thanks for stopping!  See you Oct 1 and Oct 2!!!

I left for 2 minutes and Cheryl was in the shark tank.

Awesome layout in the Epiphany Crafts booth.

This crafter is serious about her rolling tote.  Love it!

Wendy Senger creator of Tattered Angels.  Yay!

I was happy to meet Tim Holtz.  He's extraordinary!

I'm hoping to post a picture of my project using the September SOTM very soon.

Also, don't forget that it is National Stamping Month and Close To My Heart is giving you Two FREE large stamp sets (Pair-a-Phrase) when you order $75 of CTMH products this month.  Don't miss out!

***Close To My Heart August***

If you order at least $50 in CTMH products in August you can purchase the Stamp of the Month (SOTM) for $5 and receive the alphabet stamp set for FREE.  As you can see the SOTM is "Wicked" Awesome!

If you order at least $75 in CTMH products in August you will receive a FREE Double Stamp set.

This Double Stamp Set Promotional Deal is good through September as it is Celebrating National Stamping Month.

To sum it up, for the month of August if you order $75 in products you get two FREE large D size stamp sets OR you can spend $5 more for the SOTM and get a total of 4 stamp sets. (the SOTM, the Free alphabet set, and the Free Double Stamp Set)

There is another great option....For those of you who are thinking about ordering the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge Bundle (page 13), here's the scoop....  You could order the Cricut Bundle for $99 which includes the Cartridge, 3 large Stamp Sets, and 3 sheets of Dimensional Elements and then purchase the SOTM for $5.  This means that for $104 you would get the Cricut Cardtridge, the Dimensional Elements and SEVEN Stamp Sets!!! (six of which are the large D size stamp sets)

Hope this all makes sense.  Ask me questions if you need to.  Lots of great deals this month!  I am placing an order on the 23rd.  If you need something let me know by email:  kampstyle@gmail.com or FB message me.  And here is another option...you don't have to order a dang thing if you don't want to.  lol.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!!!
