May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Celebrate with Cake

The May stamp of the month, Celebrate with Cake, is such a fun stamp set!  You're going to get tons of yummy ideas along this month's stamp of the month blog hop.  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Priscilla's blog.  From here you'll visit Michelle next.)

My first card was made especially for a friend who loves the color blue!  I used Glacier and Peacock for my main colors.  First I stamped the image in Slate then colored the cake slice with our new small waterbrush.  I added Slate and Honey to the candle too.  The card is embellished with Peacock Fundamentals and our NEW Florence sequins.

My second card uses the same sketch from Make It From Your Heart (but obviously flipped).  I again colored my focal image with the waterbrush (this time stamped with archival black and Slate).  I had a great time splattering my card front with watercolor paint in the NEW Calypso color palette (Cotton Candy, Pear, Honey, Lagoon, and Black).  Don't you love the NEW adorable Calypso sequins?

Thanks for hopping by!  I'd love to know what you think of the cards before heading to the next blog.  Just click on her name to go see Michelle's Celebrate with Cake May stamp of the month project!
