December SOTM Blog Hop – Happiness Never Grows Old

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you are coming here from LAUREN MOORE’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 16 Makers participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

You can’t go wrong with these beautiful flowers. This is what I focused on.

I started designing this card and planned to use the Thanks over the middle but then realized it would cover almost all of the flowers. So I went with a smaller middle utilizing the On Your Birthday Stamp Set. I did use Black Pigment ink and then went over with Clear Embossing Powder. I splatted Wisteria Shimmer Bush and added a bit of Diamond Stickles. I also used the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts on the White Daisy Cardstock.

This is the inside fo the card.

So when I realized I needed to spread the flower out, I also realized I would need more. So I did do a bit of masking to add extra flowers and leaves. I used the Thanks Thin Cuts and went over the letters with the Wisteria Shimmer Bush. I did add a little of the Diamond Stickles.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of DECEMBER. If you are a member of the Close To My Heart VIP program and you place a qualifying order of $50 in the US, you will get the stamp for FREE!! Otherwise if you spend $50 in US you can purchase for $5.
