December SOTM Blog Hop featuring Thoughtful Flowers!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy our
December Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
featuring this month's SOTM:
Thoughtful Flowers S1612

If you've just arrived here from
then you are on the correct path.
If you get lost along the way, you can find
a complete list of all of the participating
consultant blogs here on MELINDA's BLOG.

My first standard-size card features the Oh Deer! papers 
with Cocoa and Fern cardstocks. Flowers were stamped
with a Memento Black Ink Pad and colored with
Carmine and Sap Green markers.

I love the variety of so many different kinds of flowers
included in this stamp set! I'm not sure if the specific flower
stamp I used on my first card (above) was intended to be 
a poinsettia (as it could easily be colored to look
otherwise)but I wanted it to be a poinsettia, so I hope
that my attempt to make it look like one worked, lol.

Update: On Friday 12/2, I just couldn't stop creating
and ended up making a few more cards 
using just a little bit more of the Oh Deer!
papers with (retired) Blossom papers (X7196B).
The ShinHan Touch Twin Marker colors I used here
(below) include: Golden Yellow, Lavender, Leaf Green, 
Light Orange, Marigold, Peacock Blue, Peony 
Purple, and Turquoise Blue.

Now you can continue on with the hop,
and be inspired by more creativity
using this stamp set by visiting
DONNA's BLOG next!
Enjoy the hop!!
