May Stamp of the Month Cards

Hello Friends!

The May Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart is called Celebrate With Cake.  It’s a cute “build a cake” style stamp set that can be used for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and other occasions.  Here are a couple of cards that you can make if you have this stamp set.  Take a look!

Stamp of the Month

The cards I made with this stamp set use a couple of different techniques.  On this first card I stamped directly on patterned paper from the Happy Times paper collection, then fussy cut the images and added some doodling.

The second card is for an anniversary.  I stamped the cake with Versa Mark, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and then heat embossed the image.   After that it was easy to apply color with Watercolor Paints and the new Water Brushes from Close To My Heart.  If you haven’t used them yet, you’ve got to give them a try!  The paper I used for this card is also from the Happy Times paper collection.

Now that it is June, there is a new Stamp of the Month.  This one is called “The Long Way Home”.  I can’t wait to make some projects with this one too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  You are appreciated!   Laurie
