Bloom & Grow - January’s Stamp of the Month

Welcome to the Close to My Heart

 Indpendent Consultant Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

You have arrived here from Michelle's blog we  have 21   consultants participating in this hop.  If you lose your place while moving through the hop a complete list of participating consultants can be found here.  

I really like this stamp set it's perfect for New Year gifts, party favors, or just a fun thing to hand out to Family & Friends.   I love Poppies & Sunflowers which I plant all over the yard, so this set is perfect to tuck in some seeds and hand them out to share he joy of these happy flowers

I created two small & similar gift bags perfect to hold seeds and chocolate.
I used one of the PML cards from the new Chelsea Gardens paper pack, check out the sites to see the loads of gorgeous new products.

I used our watercolor pencils to color in the leaves in a couple shades of green.  A fun technique to try, I didn't,  is to take the Clear Shimmer Brush or Wink of Stella (whichever you have) and use it to blend your watercolor pencils.  I took some shimmery spray I had and I sprayed the card to give it a light sparkle.
