February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

It's time for our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring February's SOTM, which is Piece of Cake, a set of 10 stamps. If you've come from Chris's Blog, you're on the right path. We have over 70 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

This month, I opted for a simple card.  While I love coloring in stamps, I don't always have the time.  A quick but pretty way to showcase line art stamps is to emboss them in white on dark cardstock.  Here, I embossed the cake in White Daisy on Chocolate Cardstock.  It pops right off the card!




Pattern - Wishes - Circle Collection
Inks - Chocolate and VersaMark

I sponged the edges of all the pieces and the card base in Chocolate ink.  The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate on the Heavenly Blue side of the B&T.  I also sponged the pink Just Bloom for some shading.

Now "Hop" on over to Jessica's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! The complete list of participants is here. Remember, the February SOTM is only available until February 28th! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!

Until next time...
