S1602 Balloon Animals Australasian Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Mez's Craft Room then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s February Stamp of the Month, Balloon Animals. It can be yours for just $10 with a qualifying order of $75 or for $33 if ordered separately from your CTMH consultant.

Everyone loves a party, and so I have found a perfect way to create a festive atmosphere with this stamp set.

I started off by stamping some of the Balloon Animal images on Kraft cardstock in Poppy, Cocoa, Eggplant and Pomegranate inks.

I then fussy cut each animal with my Non-Stick Scissors.

I glued a toothpick onto the back of each animal with a Glue Pen. and left to dry.

Each cupcake topper was then placed on top of a red velvet cupcake, ready for party!

These cupcake toppers take baking to the next level without the need for fancy icing techniques or sprinkles.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Scrap Stamp Share.
