May Stamp of the Month - Celebrate with Cake


Welcome to the May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Celebrate with Cake. This is a fun set of 13 stamps! If you have come here from Paige Dolecki's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.



What a fun stamp!  So many choices of cakes.  My first thought was do create a birthday card but I decided to do something a little different.   Since weddings are on my mind alot lately I decided to create a card using the "just Married" sentiment.


I used my watercolor paints on the cake and the cake stand.  I created the background for my card using the back of the little rose stamp.  I placed it upside down on my block so that flat side was up and image was facing the block.   Next I inked the rose in Pixie ink up to the leaf and then inked just the leaf in Sweet Leaf Ink.  I randomly stamped the White Daisy Cardstock until it was full of roses.  At first I wasn't too sure about it because it looked like this - 


But then I flipped the stamp over and inked it in Black ink and stamped over all of the roses.
Much better!  It was exactly the look I was going for.
