How cute is this???
I Love it and I have had a LOT of fun making cards and pages with it already! I know many of us have been hanging out for this Stamp of the Month to get here and yippeee here it is! December Stamp of the Month is Cutie Pie S1412 and it is available for $27 or for just $5 when you spend $75 with your consultant. (Ask your consultant about the additional Deal of the Decade if your order is at this amount!)
I have decided to pair my SOTM project up with the new paper collection Heartstrings because it comes with a card making kit rather than a WOTG, and we have a yummy mini pack of coordinating PML Cards. So, it did not take me long to come up with this layout.
I have focussed on the blues in the PML cards. The best match card stock and ink was Crystal Blue. I used our biggest block (4 x 5 Y1012) and started by mounting all 4 cupackes on the block in random directions. I then stamped this rotating the block 90 degrees and 180 and even rotating the paper. This gave me the random stamped cupcake background.
The side strips are a 2 inch strip of Crystal Blue embossed with the new Diamond Embossing folder. It looks and feels really quilted! I added the flourish from the Heartstrings complements, inked the edges of my selected pml cards and added a zip strip to one of the photos mounts. Random scraps also make a great washi look and you need that bit of bling with silver shimmer trim.
I had already been playing in my paper packet so I had B and T scraps to use – but you could use PML cards if that is all you have. Stamp a cupcake (or 3!) using Black ink on the Heartstrings B and T papers. Mix it up. Separate the wrapper from the top of each one and shuffle them around. Adhere them to a small strip of scrap paper as you put them back together. This will support them. Then use foam mounting tape to adhere them to the page. I used a strip of B and T paper as a ‘shelf’ to put them on. Don’t forget the sparkle for the top!
I added some heart stamps and some puffy hearts from the new Stuck on you Puffies just to finish it off with a bit of red.
