Candlelight Garden Stamp of the Month Cards

We're having unseasonably warm weather for December. Temperatures in the 50's seem like fall or spring. I took an evening off from making Christmas cards to play with some lovely pastel paper that reminds me of spring. This month the stamp of the month is a lovely combination of flowers, jar, and candle with sentiments perfect for thank you or friendship cards. I used it to make this week's Mojo Monday Tall & Skinny Sketch #426:


I stamped the jar and flowers for this one on watercolor paper and painted the flowers with watercolors. 

I'm sharing this first card with the following challenges:
Come and Get It - Anything goes with a sentiment
Crafting by Designs - anything goes 
Crafty Gals Corner #48 - anything goes
Winners Badge ~

Here are two more cards I made with this stamp set and paper pack.

I colored the flowers of the second card using ShinHan alcohol markers. I curved the stamp to curve around the larger sentiment and cut it so the flowers went off the panel. 

I wanted the third card to be light and airy to go with the candlelight idea so I chose the striped paper. It was also colored with alcohol ink markers and lightened with the colorless blender. 

Here's the inside:

Here are the images in this stamp set. It is only available in December and can be purchased at full price or for $5.00 with a $50 purchase. The links to see these items are below.  If you'd like to see more cards using these stamps you'll find a blog hop here.
