CTMH--- February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop--- Piece of Cake

Thanks for joining me in another round of the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



This month we are featuring February's Piece of Cake A set of 10 stamps that are amazing! You will see many different creations from the fabulous consultants in this blog hop! This stamp set features CAKES, cupcakes, treats and sentiments! This set is perfect for Birthday Cards and those "sweet" pictures you need to scrapbook!

For our hop today, I have created two birthday cards. I used up some older card scraps. What I love best about this stamp set is that it goes with any colors, any paper. I love that I can color in the little cakes and cupcakes to make them match. I used my markers and my waterbrush and ink pads to color in all the images. I also used some stickles to give them that extra pop!





Supplies:
Card1
D1406 Piece of Cake Stamps
Daydream Level 2
Sweet Leaf Cardstock
Blush Ribbon
Grey Wool Ink (stamp image)
Hollyhock, Sweet Leaf Markers
Lilac Mist, Sorbet Ink
Waterbrush
Misc Stickles

Card2
D1406 Piece of Cake Stamps
Unforgettable Level 2
Vanilla Cream Cardstock
Cocoa Ink (stamped image)
Juniper, Sorbet, Blush Ink
Waterbrush
Misc Stickles

If you don't have CTMH markers to color your images... its OK! A waterbrush and your ink pad will do the trick! Stamp your image in a dark neutral color (I used Grey Wool on my first card and Cocoa on the second). Squeeze your ink pad closed to get some residual ink on the inside of the lid. Open the lid, use your waterbrush to pick up some color, and color your image. Imagine you're back in preschool and doing water colors again- so fun!

Remember, the February SOTM is only available until 2/28! Click here to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

Happy Hopping :)
