S1612 Thoughtful Flowers SOTM Blog Hop

Blog Badge

Welcome to the December Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Georgia's Blog, you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it.  Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from.  Each blog will showcase a project featuring the Thoughtful Flowers (S1612) stamp set which is December's Stamp of the Month.



This is a beautiful set of diverse blooms, ideal for those of you who enjoy colouring.  My favourite sentiment on this set is "You're a whole lot of wonderful".  I have so many awesome women in my life who deserve a card with that phrase on it.  I also love the little Forget-me-nots to the left of 'Thank You'.  Did you know they are the symbol for Alzheimer's suffers?


Today's layout keeps the flowers as outline drawings.  The photos of my friend Tanya's gorgeous shop, Cotton Rose, were so vibrant I didn't want the stamps competing with them.

A subtle hint of colour around and on the stamps was achieved as follows:
  • Cut 2" circles from White Daisy cardstock and add sponging around the edges using a dauber and Lemon Ink.  Working on the All Purpose Mat makes clean up easy.
  • Stamp flowers using Memento Black ink.
  • Using dauber again, add a 'smudge' of colour to flower centres.
  • Bitty Sparkles also add some dimension.
  • Sprinkle a few Green Triangles between the circles to give a hint of foliage.
You will find a list of the products used on the layout at the end of this post.

Thoughtful Flowers (S1612) is only available during December, 2016.  Full retail price is $27 but you can have this gorgeous set for just $7.50 when accompanied by a $75 order. Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant.

A great layout. I did not know that the forget me not was the symbol for Alzheimers suffers. I will have to remember that.
