CTMH It's Your Day August SOTM BLOG HOP with More to Adore, Tiny Typewriter, Nursery Bash

Welcome to our Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month BLOG HOP for August featuring "It's Your Day" acrylix stamp set which you can get at a great discount or even FREE with an order from now through August 31, 2009!

This is a circular hop so if you keep on clicking through to check out the great artwork provided
by over 60 different Close to my Heart consultants, you'll have done the full circle when you come back to where you started! I can't wait to click through and see all the fabulous creations from my sister consultants! We have some serious talent in this company!

To follow along on this hop you just need to click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move along to the next site. Afraid you'll get lost? No worries! The list of all participating consultant sites is at the very bottom of this post. Now on to my card!

"It's Your Day" is such an all around great birthday stamp set I just know you are going to love adding it to your tool box! I've been using this set on so many projects lately especially in bright colors that I wanted to switch things up and use some softer colors. Here I've used the colors from More to Adore (Blush, Chocolate, Hollyhock) and added a bit of Creme Brulee to make a "sweet" card. I just love how the liquid glass makes the cake look like it has lots of gooey frosting just waiting to be eaten up!


Materials Used:
Paper: Colonial White Cardstock, Chocolate Cardstock, More to Adore Level 2 (used the reverse side)
Stamps: It's Your Day, Tiny Typewriter
Inks: Chocolate, Blush, Hollyhock, Creme Brulee
Other: Liquid Glass, Hollyhock Ribbon Rounds, Corner Rounder (to make scallop edge)


Here is the first rendition of this card. My hubby said he didn't want to think of pigs when he was eating his birthday cake so I decided to make another one without the little piggies but I had to share this card! I love the way the pigs hold up the cake!

Materials Used:
Paper: More to Adore Level 2, Colonial White CS, Chocolate CS
Stamps: Nursery Bash, It's Your Day
Other: Baby Pink Brad, Corner Rounder

Now get your frog feet on and continue hopping on over to Wendy's site to check out her artwork! Be sure to visit all the consultants on their blogs to get some great crafting ideas!
