I end today with the usual Stamp of the Month Blog Hop :)
Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for August 2013- featuring A Chocolate Affair
If you have come here from my Canadian friend Carla's Blog you're on the right path. If you get lost along the way, you'll find a complete hop list at Helen's Blog!
Today I'd like to share a couple of quick and easy 3x3 cards that I created with A Chocolate Affair. This first card features Babycakes papers and the Chocolate Striped Grossgrain ribbon. I stamped the cupcake in Chocolate on the scalloped circle, then on scratch paper stamped again in Buttercup and Sunset. I cut and paper pieced the cupcake together- topped off with a red gem from the Pink & Red glitter gems.
This next card features a paper from the Huntington paper pack and Red Shimmer Trim ( LOVE LOVE )
I stamped the cake image in chocolate on a bracket shape (From Art Philosophy). Then using my texture tools, I stippled Cranberry and Creme Brule reinker onto the paper. The inside has a Happy Birthday Stamp :)
A Chocolate Affair is perfect for small cards, just like these!
