This month we are featuring August's Stamp of the Month which is "It's Your Day", a 26 piece stamp set. If you've just come from Pam's blog, then you're still on the right path. If this is your first stop, you might want to start at the beginning at Jena's blog. If you get lost, I have the list at the bottom of this post.
There are an AMAZING 64 Close To My Heart Consultants participating in this month's SOTM blog hop! All the artwork uses the August SOTM as well as all the other fantastic CTMH products you can get from any of us.....hopefully through me! Ha ha! Remember that the SOTM is only available through the end of August, and you can even earn it for FREE!! Ask me how!
Here we go......
I obviously wanted this card to be fun and bright. You can't really tell to well from the picture, but I used clear embossing power on top of the three cake pieces. I also didn't have any Hydrangea cs for my main sentiment, so I just inked up my circle until I got the desired color.
Stamps I used differently:
1. I used the dotted line from the "for" stamp as a dot border around my main image. This would normally be used as a line to write what the event is for.
2. I used the "birthday list" stamp by inking each saying separately with my marker and using it for the candle stems. This would probably by used as just a check list on a Bday page.
3. I then used the super small "candle" stem stamp multiple times to get the length of candle I needed to include my entire sentiment.
4. Lastly, I used REVERSE side of one of the "candle flame" stamps to create my dotted background.
Materials: All CTMH. "It's Your Day" August SOTM, "Fringed Phrases" ss (main sentiment), "Connections" ss, Whoops-A-Daisy L2pp, Key Lime and White Daisy cs, watermelon, crystal blue, hydrangea, key lime, and black inks, black marker, white daisy ric-rac Coluzzle circle cutter, clear embossing powder, sparkles, window charms, 3D pop dots.
