January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Beloved Bouquet

Happy NEW YEAR and thank you for joining us this month as we showcase our January Stamp of the Month, "Beloved Bouquet".  You can get these 14 images for just $5 with a $50 purchase!  The stamp set has a retail value of $17.95!  I love the images and sentiments, perfect for Valentine's Day cards or tags or...for anytime of the year - like now!  :)

If you are coming from Michelle's Blog, you are on the right track.  This is a complete circle so keep making your way around the fabulous artwork.  Should you get lost along the way you can click here for a list of participants.

I really love how this card turned out, although the beautiful colors are just not as visible in a photo.  :)  I used Watercolor Paper and applied different hues of pink, purple and green Watercolor Paints before stamping the rose and leaf images using Black ink.  I then fussy cut them and layered them onto the card, but not after adding strips of our Kaleidoscope paper and Gold Foil Tape.
This Gold Foil Tape (we also carry Silver) is becoming a new obsession of mine.  I totally love it!  Three Bling Gold Gems, of various sizes, helped add that last bit of pop to this card.  The sentiment was stamped in Black in k as well.
I am looking forward to creating more artwork with this stamp set, in fact, I already have!  Be sure to check back regularly for new artwork!

Hop on over to Sheila's Blog to see what fun she has in store for you!
