Candlelight Garden (December SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  The stamp set for the month of December can be used to create sweet thank you and friendship cards, and also add some great details to your scrapbook pages.     

If you have come here from My Creations With Michelle, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  

The jar image from Candlelight Garden is so versatile and can be used to "hold" just about any stamp image.  For this card, I used the votive candle with a sweet sentiment.  Color was added to the top portion of the card base and the stamped images using watercolor.  The soft watercolor goes very well with the patterned papers in the Kaleidoscope kit.  You may recognize the card design as Pattern #26 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 2.         

Place a $50 minimum order this month (December 2015) and you are eligible to purchase the Candlelight Garden stamp set for only $5. It is also available for $17.95 without a qualifying purchase.  

Now "Hop" on over to Melissa's Heartfelt Sentiments blog to see her work.  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas.
