Welcome to the December Joyful Stars Blog Hop! We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST. If you are coming from Donna Ackley Long's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is also on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.) Have fun being inspired!
One of my favorite stamps from the December Stamp of the Month Thoughtful Flowers is this poinsettia stamp. I colored it several times with our Shin Han Touch Markers (Carmine and Tender Pink) and then used the CTMH Clear Shimmer Brush on the center petals. I used a 1/4" hole punch to cut the flower centers from CTMH Gold Shimmer Trim.
Here is a closeup so you can see the sparkle on the top leaves made by the Clear Shimmer Brush:
