 Take a look!J

I ADORE the sayings in this stamp set, and love the font they are written in too! J 

As crafters, we celebrate "National Scrapbooking Month" (NSM) each May!  Close To My Heart always creates an EXCLUSIVE paper pack in honor of this occassion, and this is the paper I used to create this card.  

The Happy Times paper collection is a BEAUTIFUL paper pack, that's only available during the month of May 2016.  

It's hard to see in this picture, but there are TWO of the 14 sheets of paper have GOLD FOIL in the design...just beautiful!!  

I used the CTMH's Make It From the Heart, vol. 2 How-To book (pattern #26) for the design of this card. 

Here's a look at my finished card... J

The dotted paper, the ombre orange/red paper, striped yellow paper & striped green paper are from Happy Times paper pack. I also used our fabulous Glitter Paper too! 
(we have 6 different color assortments of glitter paper!) 

My VersaMat (cut on 1 side, stamp of the other)  & xacto knife came in handy to cut out the center of the cake...

I used our NEW sm Waterbrush to color in the cake with our Watercolor paints.  If you look carefully, you'll notice that after the paint dried, I used our GOLD metallic marker to draw over the confetti on the cake. 

Take a look at the picture below for some more of the detail....

I finished off the card by adding the gold, sparkle Bling Gems, So fun!!  

I hope you are enjoying this blog hop & are getting LOTS of ideas for when you have your OWN May Stamp of the Month (SOTM) stamp set in hand! Don't forget to ask your consultant about the National Scrapbooking paper & stamp set special too!! Happy Crafting to EACH of you! J 

Now  its time to head over to Sarah Stone's  to see  what FABULOUS item she has created using this stamp set!  J
