"It's in the Script" - CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop where we use Close To My Heart product to highlight a fun technique. We've got "It's in the Script" for you, for September, where participants can incorporate various stamp sets OR a fabulous NEW Penmenship Book, and pens, from Melissa Esplin. I'm excited to see what everyone has to showcase and I hope you are too!

If you are coming from Terry's Blog, you are on the right track. You'll find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post. 

In wanting to make a birthday card, and incorporate a new stamp set, this is what I chose to create. I love the sentiment and script used for "birthday", plus it was a great image for paper-piecing the cupcake image.

Cardstock and patterned paper from the Mix-Ins Paper Pack and Every Little Thing were used. Of course, a little ribbon and Julep Glitter Gems can't help but bring the perfect finishing touch. 

This is the fun stamp set I chose to use, "Sweet Birthday Wishes" that is perfect for celebrating such an occasion.

Here is a close-up of the paper piecing and use of Liquid Glass on the cherry. 

The image was stamped multiple times, first, on the base patterned paper and then again on Smoothie and Mint cardstock. The frosting and cupcake holder were cut out of the respective cardstock pieces and glued on top of the base image. A marker was used to color in the cherry and then Liquid Glass was added to it. 

I'm please with how this turned out and had a great time making it! Considering leaving a comment before you head over to Michelle Loncar's Blog to check out what she has to share with you. And then, don't forget to continue making your way around all of the artwork. There's no doubt you will be inspired. 

Make it from your heart!
