Celebrate With Cake - CTMH May Stamp of the Month

This is the 3rd and last card that my May class made. 

I used the May Stamp of the Month, Celebrate with Cake
Colors are Glacier and Sweetleaf. Cake was colored with ShinHan Alcohol Markers.  The clear sparkles in the center of the flowers were also colored with the ShinHan markers.

I stamped the background paper by using the back of the clear stamp with Glacier and Sweetleaf, then flipped the stamp to the right side and over stamped with Whisper.  In between, I stamped the leaf using second generation technique. 
I did the same for the flowers on the cake, but I over stamped with black then cut the flowers out.

The cake stand and the banner were water colored with Sweetleaf ink.


Happy Times Thank You card



Here is the second card for my May card class. It used the Happy Times Stamp Set, only available until May 31st. With it I used Poppy Cardstock along with Poppy and Honey inks for the flowers.

The white portions were dry embossed. The top one with the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder. The bottom with the Dot Embossing Folder.

The Thank You is from a retired set.

Happy Times Birthday

Here is the first of three cards that my May card class made. We used the Happy times May Special Paper Pack and matching Happy Times stamp set. I Love this paper!!! The stamp set and paper are only available until May 31st.

Curtain Cards

I forgot to post the other two cards that my classes made in April.  Her is the first one. It is a Curtain card using the Keep Your Chin Up stamp set from CTMH, and the Kaleidoscope paper pack.


After cutting the paper for the first curtain, I had the other piece of the paper left over. Since the paper is scored before cutting on the diagonal, I decided to flip the paper over, fold on the same score lines and make another card. Since this piece of paper was smaller, I made a vertical card with it using the Build A Cake stamp set.
