Feb. SOTM Blog Hop - Piece of Cake

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month blog hop featuring "Piece of Cake," a celebration stamp set of 10 stamps. If you have come here from Haley Dyer's blog, you're on the right path! Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for the link to the next blog on the hop, Jill Lucas' blog. With over 70 CTMH consultants participating, you are sure to find plenty of card, scrapbook page, or other papercrafting item ideas.

I saw this darling spinner card on Splitcoast Stampers (click here to view the tutorial) and had to try it. (Whoa -- I almost said, "Had to give it a SPIN!") I'm thrilled with how it turned out! The Caboodle papers are bright and cheery. When you open the card, the piece with the cakes on it spins around. Too cute!


Spinning ...
And spinning ...
And spinning some more!

I got a little print-happy that day on SCS and printed off another tutorial on making faux alligator wallets. I immediately pictured it in hot pink, so out came the Hollyhock cardstock and the chocolate ink pad. I'm still a little Cuttlebug challenged, but I managed to get the embossing done after a few (several) tries. Please don't look too closely at my sewing, especially on the curves. I really do a lot better on fabric! :)


The cupcakes needed to be frosted, so I used Liquid Applique to give it some dimension. The "cherries" are actually Tulip Bitty Brads. The inside is lined with Bella papers and closed with a Velcro closure:



Wouldn't this be a cute place for a gift card? Or some cold, hard cash?
