02/01/10 February SOM D1407 Pieces of Cake

This month's Stamp of the Month is one of my favorites - not only do I get to color the designs but I get to eat the props! I had to make sure they were as tasty as they looked! If you are "hoppin" with the rest of us - you have just arrived from Cibelle's blog.

Here is the CTMH February Stamp of the Month -Piece of Cake!

Check out my design and of course the cupcake box! The pattern is from Regina Easter's blog The Cutting Cafe. This cupcake holder pattern is both a one and two cupcake holder! It was so quick and easy and the perfect accompaniment for my card.

Supplies include:
D1407 Pieces of Cake stamp set
X7120 Topstitch Paper pack
Inks, markers and embellishments - Baby Pink, Heavenly Blue, Vineyard Berry and White Daisy

Now hop on over to Jenifer's blog where you will find additional awesome artwork with this stamp set! Remember, the Piece of Cake February SOM stamp set is only available until February 28th! Contact me or purchase this stamp set on my website today!

If you get lost along the way - stop off at any one of the following consultants websites and see what they have to offer this month!

01/12/10 CTMH New Product Blog Hop

Happy New Year!!

Welcome to our Close to My Heart New Product Blog Hop! 17 Fabulous
Close to My Heart Consultants are celebrating the recent release of the Spring 2010 Idea Book by showing you some of our creations with the wonderful new products from Close to my Heart!

Even it is cold outside, blog hopping is a warm wonderful experience and you will burn sooo many calories! You should have arrived from Helen's website and checked out her awesome project!

Now it is time to check out my "Totally Awesome" card as well. This card is a 4" Easel card and you can make it any size you wish. (I'll explain later)! The X7122 You Rock paper pack is my favorite in the Spring Idea Book.

I created this card with this paper pack and I know my husband and sons will love it!

X7122 You Rock paper pack
C1388 Rock Star
Z2140 Outdoor Denim
Z2130 Indian Corn Blue
Z2123 Goldrush
Z1277 Mini Medley Outdoor Denim Accents
Z679 Liquid Glass

Here are a few photo steps to help you create your own version:

Step #1 - Cut and score your cardstock

Step #2 - Cut the remaining B & T paper and cardstock

Step #3- Stamp designs onto the B & T paper.

Step #5 - Glue on front tag and wrap ribbon around the 4" square. Using Liquid Glass, glue button in the center of the bottom card (4" square = 2" center)

Now it is your turn to create your version of the Easel Card. To change sizes, just follow the simple formula i.e. 5 x 10" base, score at 2.5 and 5"; 5 " square card front - reduce each piece by 1/4" AND glue button in the center of the base i.e. 2.5" "Easy Peasy"!!

Now "Hop" on over to Jody's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and see the great new Paper Packs, My Acrylix Stamp Sets, and amazing new embellishments!

You can purchase any of these items by contacting me directly, or from my CTMH website .
