Feb. Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

It's... A Piece of Cake... and oh so cute!
Welcome to this month's consultant Blog Hop featuring "A Piece of Cake" - the February 2010 Stamp of the Month... one of my favorite sets in the Spring Idea Book!
I am a member of a consultant Stamp of the Month swap that happens each month and this is the card I made for the swap!  {P.s.  Scroll to the bottom to find the links to continue on the hop!}
My photos are somewhat darker but it was the best way to show the dimesion of the icing on my cupcakes... more flash just blended it all in and made it look "flat"

All supplies are by CTMH and include:
Topstitch Level 2 Paper pack; Piece of Cake stamp set, Chocolate stamp pad; Chocolate, Blush and Crystal Blue markers; Colonial White Ribbon Rounds; Liquid Applique; liquid glass and prisma glitter!

The liquid applique goes on like you are writing with a pen.  If you heat it up it makes it look "fluffy" but if you don't heat it- it is shiny... so no heating on this card!  The liquid glass was added to my cherries to make them look shiny.  Prisma glitter was sprinkled over while the applique and liquid glass were both still wet.
The cupcake image was also stamped on scrap paper and the cake plate cut out.  I colored the cut out cake plate and adhered it over the image panel for a little more 3-d effect.  The second photo shows the icing up close... really close! lol.

Now- Hop on over to Kami Welters blog to continue on the hop... If you get lost along the way visit Jena's blog- she will have the whole list of hoppers posted either with today's post or yesterdays.
