January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Bloom & Grow

Welcome to our monthly Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop!!!

If you have come here from Haley's Blog, you are on the right track!!

This month, we will be featuring the EXCLUSIVE January SOTM stamp set called "Bloom & Grow". 

This blog hop is a great big circle, so you can START HERE & work your way around to the many consultants on this “hop”! If you get lost along the way, you’ll find a complete list of PARTICIPATING CONSULTANTS by clicking HERE

This month we have 21 Close To My Heart Consultants that will be sharing items using this month’s stamp set.  So, sit back & enjoy your tour as you click on the link at the end of each post to see what EVERY consultant has created.

Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with your $50 CTMH purchase in January 2018.

This stamp set makes me think of SPRING...and I chose to pair it up with a BEAUTIFUL, new paper collection that was just released today - "Chelsea Gardens".  

Here is the card I created for today. 

Look at those pretty blues & greens...our green "Sweet Leaf" has been my favorite green for so long!! 

 I also chose to pair up these papers with our "Color of the Year" - Bashful!  I used some Bashful glitter paper, pearls AND the NEWEST addition of a Bashful item - Bashful Glitter Brush!!! 

We also have some beautiful NEW ribbons in the Seasonal Expression 1 mini catalog that was just released. You'll see here that we have a grosgrain gray ribbon - Hooray!! I love adding a touch of ribbon to all of my papercrafting creations. 

I took this picture in the sunlight to try and show you the shimmer & sparkle the Bashful Shimmer Brush's hoping you can see it! :) A piece of the Bashful Glitter paper is to the left, and each of the leaves on the seed packet, were colored in with the Bashful Shimmer Brush.  

Lastly, the heart was stamped in Bashful ink, onto the lighter side of our Bashful cardstock.  The heart was then colored with the Bashful Shimmer Brush....that's a LOT of Bashful going on! :)  

I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting LOTS of ideas for when you create with your OWN Stamp of the month stamp set. Happy Crafting to each of you!
