Candlelight Garden S1512: CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the Month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Meryl's Blog, Mez' Craft Room, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you these three cards that feature the December Stamp of the Month, Candlelight Garden, available exclusively throughout December for $33 or for just $10 when you spend $75.

Here they are all together, using stamps from the December SOTM and other items.

The first card uses the mason jar and flowers stamped in black ink, I then stamp the flowers and hearts on different cardstocks and fussy cut them all to layer on top of the black stamped image. The sentiment was stamped from the Friend Tree stamp set and matted on cardstock. Finally, I added some pink gems for the finishing touch.

The second card uses the same flower stamp in black ink, but this time I decided to let the papers and cardstocks provide colour. The sentiment is also from the December SOTM. I fussy cut the leaves and placed them behind the cardstock, and cut the mason jar from the Artistry Cricut cartridge. Isn't the Kaleidoscope paper beautiful? The pattern works so well with flower and leaf motifs.

For the last card, I wanted a firefly type card as we are celebrating summer over here currently. Using White Diasy ink, I stamped the jar, sentiment and sparkle lines from the SOTM onto Sapphire cardstock, then added the Gold Sequins for the fireflies.

Which card do you like the best?

Candlelight Garden is only available until 31st December from your CTMH consultant. I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Patricia's Blog.
