The stamp set this month is S1403 Happy Place and it is available for $5.00 with a minimum purchase of $50.00.
Let's start with the artwork from the CTMH artists. I was trying to wrap my head around this stamp set when I noticed a set of these dolls sitting in my dining room hutch...mmmmm
I must have inherited them from my mother-in-law and so I decided to open them up and see what was inside...Six little ladies with a snowman at the end! How cute! It was quite interesting to read the history of these carved dolls.
I envisioned the set on a card and I created my first Bendi-Fold card on my Pazzles machine. It was definitely a challenge to play with this WPC files and tweak it to create exactly what I wanted!
I spent all day designing this card but I was very happy with the results. This is probably not the last time you will see the house surface in the artwork - it fit the theme of the stamp set perfectly. I cut multiple layers and then "paper-pieced" it together. Both of my machines were busy cutting furiously to keep up with my design I had in my head!
