Stamping Around the World Feb Blog Hop

Hello, I'm Linda and I'm based on a small island in Essex UK, welcome to the second month of our new Stamping Around the World Blog Hop.  The idea behind this blog is to add more inspiration for projects, on top of our monthly PDF tutorial file that you can receive with a qualifying order.

This month I'm using the great stamp set Hello Cupcake which is a Sale-A-Bration item.  You can also buy dies for this set now!

For this pretty cupcake I've stamped using Sahara Sand ink and stamping off three times before stamping onto my paper.  This gives a very faint image so you can then 'paint' you cake.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, Early  Espresso and Coastal Cabana inks.  I put a stamp mount into my ink then using my Wink of Stella I coloured my cake by dipping onto the ink covered mount.

My cupcake is very sparkly in real life!

I do not know what this card fold is called but was inspired by a picture on Pinterest by Country Stamper.

I've made a short video below

Please don't forget to hop along with all the other super projects.

Here's our beautiful Pdf tutorial file, free with a qualifying order or £11 to buy.
