December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Thoughtful Flowers

This month we are featuring a set of 8 fun flowers (perfect for coloring or embossing as you create your artwork) and 6 great sentiments for your handmade cards.  

If you have never participated in a blog hop before, it is just one big loop or creative ideas.  If you are coming from Wendy Coffman's blog, you are on the right track.  If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post and successive posts to see where to go next.

For my project, I only used one flower from this stamp set to create a Christmas poinsettia double page layout.  I'm not sure the flower was meant to be a poinsettia, but it looks like one to me.

Here's a little closer look at each page.  The center of each 

flower was punched out of the red or gold shimmer trim using 
an ordinary hand held paper punch. 

Supplies used:
Ink:  Versa Mark
Embossing Powder: Princess Gold

  • This versatile floral stamp set is only available until December 31.
  • Available through your Close To My Heart consultant - or purchase on my website
  • $17.95 as a stand alone item, or only $5 with a $50 purchase.
  • Any of the supplies listed above are linked to my website - just click the links.

Join me in visiting the other consultants who are participating in this blog hop to see their wonderful idea.  Next on our list is Vickie ODell's blog.

If for some reason you get lost along the way, you can find the entire blog hop list here to get back into the loop.
