January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Bloom and Grow

Welcome to the January Stamp of the Month 
Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Michelle Stewart's Blog.}   We have 21 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.  

The January Stamp of the Month is entitled Bloom and Grow (S1801) (Set of  15).   Here is a picture of this stamp set:

This stamp set is full of large sentiments which will be great for cards or scrapbooks.  I couldn't decide which sentiment to use so I am going to make a card with each of these sentiments as a set.

Here is my first card.

Did you know that we have a brand new catalog that went live today?  I decided to use one of our new paper packs called Chelsea Gardens (X7230B).  I love the blues and greens in this paper pack and was instantly attracted to it.

All of the stamping is done in Charcoal Ink and the matting was done with Charcoal cardstock. I used a second stamp set and thin cuts from the Chelsea Gardens line called Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts (Z4158)Sweet Leaf cardstock was used for the leaves. I used the Chelsea Gardens Dots and Gems as embellishments.

The January Stamp of the Month Stamp Set can be purchased for $17.95 or if you purchase $50 in CTMH products, you can add this stamp set to your order for an additional $5.  This stamp set is only available between January 1 – January 31, 2018.
