Piece of Cake anyone?

Welcome to February's Blog Hop using CTMH's Stamp of the Month, Piece of Cake!!!  This is a SUPER CUTE set that can be used for birthdays, weddings and even the cake layers can be stamped, cut apart and can be used as presents!!

We have over 60 consultants participating this month and if you've come from Jody's blog, you're on the right track!!

This month I decided to make 2 cards, one using a NEW paper packet, Caboodle, and the other using Stardust!!! 

For my first card, I used Caboodle (Buttercup, Crystal Blue, Sorbet & Sweet Leaf) and CTMH's Wishes Card Confidence Program - Name Plate (3"x6").  I used Heavenly Blue ribbon 'cause I didn't have any Crystal Blue but I think it turned out okay anyway.  I used Pewter Photo Hangers and paper pieced everything except the candles - I used markers on those.  I inked distressed everything with Grey Wool Ink (direct to paper).


-----------------------------------------------------------
For this next card, I used the Stardust paperpacket and White Textured Cardstock (which CTMH is having a HUGE HAITI fundraiser using Textured cardstock as the promotion - check back later for more details)!!!!

I made a flower using Black Gingham ribbon (non-CTMH, I think) and a Twinkle Brad for the center.  I decided not to color in the cupakes and just added prisma glitter to the tops and only colored in the candles.  I used Wishes again and pop-dotted the center piece with the cupcakes.  The cubcakes are actually a part of the stamp that has a cake stand, but I masked out the stand and just stamped the cupcakes end-to-end.  I inked distressed with Grey Wool and Watermelon (direct to paper).
