Welcome to the Rock the Block Blog Hop! We will be featuring the December/January Promotion, Rock the Block, a set of 22 stamps with a coordinating block set. If you have come here from Karen’s Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.
This month we have 33 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using Rock the Block and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do – just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!
I created this card with the Rock the Block stamp set and the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. My crafting time is very limited this holiday season, so I have yet to create with my block set. I will be posting more items later this month and into January. The Rock the Block stamp set is made to coordinate with the block set…but has so many other uses. The square stamps are great for creating backgrounds. I used the dot stamp to make my background on this card. I cut my decorative shapes out with the Cricut Art Philosophy. I cut the white shape out at 1 ¾” and stamped the Love design. This stamp set does not include Cricut settings. I have found if you measure your stamp image and cut your Cricut shape the same or slightly larger, most images cut out perfect the first time around. All supplies by Close To My Heart except where noted:
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
CC1016 Rock The Block Set
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
1272 Cranberry Cardstock
Z2116 Cranberry Ink
Z1103 Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon
Smooch Spray by Clearsnap
Here is a close up of the Love stamped panel. I added a spray mist to the top panel to add a little sparkle!
