February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! CTMH Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Welcome to our Close To my Heart February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  Did you hop over from Amy's blog?  I hope you enjoyed her project!

This time we have over 70 consultants using the same stamp set - Piece of Cake.  Now how cool is that!   There are ten images to choose from.  You'll want to play with all of them.  So settle in and find some inspiration!

I really thought this particular cake image would 'do up' well as a wedding cake. The only colors used here are White Daisy, Grey Wool and Black.  CTMH's Black textured cardstock is actually two-tone, so I used the Grey Wool 'backside' as a mat.

The flowers and stripes are colored with a Grey Wool marker.  I substituted our Flower Brads for the stamped flowers.  Yum, yum, yum!  Good enough to eat!

You may be able to better see the glitter rub-on sentiment in this view.  You have the option of using silver, gold or red rub-on glitter.  I chose the silver rub-on glitter for this wedding/anniversary card!

Then I used the same image to make a 3x3 birthday/gift card.  This time I substituted a glitter rub-on candle for the stamped flowers.  So you can see how versatile each individual image can be!

Now hop on over to my girlfriend Barbra's blog for more yummy cake goodness!
