May Worldwide Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring May's SOTM, which is Celebrate With Cake, a set of 17 stamps.

If you have come here from Darlys' Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

This month we have over 30 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I had some leftover kits cut from the Kaleidoscope Card Kit, which is a great cardmaking kit for birthdays. I decided to change things up a bit and stamp the last set with the May SOTM.

Here are my three cards using the Kaleidoscope Cardmaking cutting guide and the same coloured inks as the original guide, but substituting with the May SOTM for a different look.

The first card has the layered birthday cake on it, and I stamped the sentiment within the top layer of the cake.

For the second card, I fussy cut the banner after stamping it on some scrap patterned paper. I also added some pink twine to the top of the cake slice. After making this card, I smudged the side of the White Daisy cardstock (don't you hate it when that happens!) so I improvised and added three roses to the side.

For the last cake, I stamped cake and candles instead of balloons and added another fussy cut banner with the "so Sweet' sentiment.

Now "Hop" on over to Michelle's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the May SOTM is only available until 31st May!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!


  1. Creative way of stretching your cardmaking kit! Love them!

  2. Very cute, I esp like the 2nd card w/ the patterned banner and bow!

  3. Beautiful job! I love the third one, especially.

  4. Fabulous job, love how there are still leftovers from the kit to create your own cards, and mixing it with the SOTM is genius.

  5. Such different card designs yet all so appealing! I really can't pick a favorite. Thanks for inspiring me today.
