CTMH It's Your Day to Sparkle SOTM Blog Hop - June 2019

Welcome to the June 2019 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set It's Your Day to Sparkle. This month there are almost 20 Consultants sharing projects they created with It's Your Day to Sparkle. Our blog hop is circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.

You should have arrived here from ***Melissa Robinson's My Heartfelt Sentiments***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

From the moment I saw the cake I knew I wanted to do something special with it and the flowers decorating it. I even thought about stamping and fussy cutting some of the smaller flowers, but I decided to use the small stamp to create my background.

I had a happy accident while creating my card. I hope you think of it as a happy accident too. Since I was fussy cutting the cake, I did not ink all of the stamp. I stamped the cake first in Sugarplum since I was still deciding between clear and white embossing. When I lifted my stamp from the paper, it shifted a bit so when I stamped with VersaMark it ended up being slightly above the Sugarplum. Personally I like it and think it creates a nice shadow. It is too bad that when I try to do this technique "on purpose", it will probably be a little more difficult.

I used banners and a PML-like image from the cut apart sheet for my sentiments.

Before you head to ***Terry L Metzger's Creative Imaginations***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

If you have a little time, please leave a comment letting me know what you think of my card. I hope you are enjoying the projects created with It's Your Day to Sparkle — the June Stamp of the Month. Thank you for hopping with us!

So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Terry L Metzger's Creative Imaginations***.


  1. Oh my goodness! That is very pretty!

  2. Great idea background stamping this one...I love how your 'accident' turned into a creative opportunity!

  3. I love the paper piecing, this is just lovely, great job.

  4. Very elegant. I thought it was stamped and embossed on vellum unless I am missing that piece of information, I looked back over the info several times. Love it.

    1. Thanks! Actually the cake was stamped on the ombre paper with the white vine.

  5. So pretty! I love how your accident turned out!
