Celebrate With Cake S1605 - CTMH Australasian SOTM Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Close To My Heart 2016
Celebrate With Cake
Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from
you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link to the next blog at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a layout I have made for my daughter's birthday featuring the May Stamp of the Month, Celebrate With Cake S1605. This stamp set is available only in May 2016 for $27, or for just $7.50 when you place an order of $75 or more. 

I have also used the new Calypso WYW Kit which has just been released today with our new Seasonal Expressions 2!

 To start with I stamped the 5 cake stands onto a piece of White Daisy cardstock (or Watercolour paper) 11.5" x 4". I then stamped the different cake pieces and then it was time to colour in!
I used our Watercolour Paints (which are so smooth and gorgeous to use) to colour in a combination of all the different cakes and cake stands in the set. You could also use our Exclusive Inks stamp pads and a waterbrush , ShinHan Markers or Watercolour Pencils to colour in our stamps!

I then arranged my photos and decided on the flamingo PML card to go on the right hand page. Next I just built up some clusters of vellum accents, stickers, sequins, zip strips and papers to embellish. I used the pineapple Washi Tape and the flamingo Washi Tape too! Love it!

I would love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next blog:
Thanks for looking!
