Piece of Cake - February Stamp of the Month

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! February SOTM is Piece of Cake, a set of Ten (10) stamps. If you have come here from Nancy Brown's Blog you got a taste of the talent represented! We have over seventy Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations, using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products. It is simple to hop along - just click on the link at the end of the post to move to the next one!
Here is a collection of items I made this month.
And now for the close ups - with details . . .
The paper pack is Grace using Twilight, Cocoa and Colonial White cardstock.  I used glitter on the cake flowers and scored the cocoa cardstock in a diamond pattern before sanding to reveal the white core.  Love the new paper flowers, this one is folded in half and secured with a pewter brad.

Next in line is a pop up twirl card.
Stamping of a border is done with Twilight on Twilight.  I took a strip of B&T from the Grace paperpack and folded it to create a ruffle under the flower.  Love the filegree flowers and attached sparkels to add that shine! 

The inside is the Pop-up Twirl Card using a cake to spin when the card is opened.  I used our sparkles on the top and bottom of a bamboo skewer stick (instead of the buttons noted in the instructions, also used waxy flax for the thread).
Remember, the February SOTM is only available until February 28th! Contact your CTMH Consultant to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

  1. Isn't it fun to use the "ribbon" looking stripes from the Grace paper in place of real ribbon.

  2. Great the scoring and the pop up card!

  3. Your cards are great!! But I love the bows you made with Jan. SOM. Very cool!
