January's stamp of the month is "This Moment" a D stamp set with 12 images, just perfect for Valentines Day or any special occasion. It costs $27.00 normally but for this month you can have it for $5.00 with an order of $75.00. Notice the images with the red outline, this means there is a corresponding shape that can be cut with one of the Cricut cartridges.
I try to find other ideas to use the stamps rather than just what they were designed for. I came across an idea on Pinterest using a maze stamp and thought I could adapt the circle stamp to replicate the idea. To make this card, I inked the stamp with black ink, then used the Shin Han colourless Blender Marker Z2469 to remove the ink in a few places. I then stamped the image on white daisy cardstock and added the black lines with the Black Sin Han Marker Z2446 to make it look like a maze. I used one of the arrow stamps curving it on the acrylic block to mark the start of the maze, then added a Bitty Sparkle Z1263. To finish off the card I added the 2 Red Enamel Hearts Z2009, the Be Amazing stamp and some ribbon from my stash.
I also made some 31/2" x 31/2"cards and a box to hold them. The box holds 6 cards and envelopes easily. I used the Chalk It Up paper pack to make the box and some of the cards. Random stamp sets were used, each with a "love" sentiment. There are many to choose from. The box is quite easy to make, I used card stock for the box and paper for the lid. Flowers and flourish decorations were cut using the cricut. I added the stamped "Love Notes" label to the lid.
