Our Jan. Stamp of the Month is called Cross-Stitch Wishes. Its a set of 13 really cute images that can be used in a wide variety of ways
…not just for sewing!

I wanted to come up with something a bit different than a more obvious look. I used the hearts to make flowers! I nestled the small heart at the base of the large hear to make flower petals. The leaves are made from cutting the small hearts in half. The grass is ink sponged onto the bottom of the card front and I tucked the message into the upper right corner. At the base of the flowers you see a Durable Square Stud. This works as an accent but has a practical use, too. The stud covers the spot where the layers all meet making it look and giving it a neater look. 

Here is a look at the entire set of 13 images. There is SO much you can do with all these cute images. Did you notice the read outlines on some of the shapes? That means you'll find a matching 
shape on the Artiste Cricut cartridge!

This set is only available Jan. 1-31, 2014. Click here to get yours now!
