Two TCM blog commenters will be randomly drawn to receive today's featured set, Take the Cake, and will be announced in tomorrow's TCM blog post. Leave a comment on the TCM blog by 8:00 p.m., PST, tonight to qualify.
This particular card set has so much potential, I think it may be my favorite set in the March release. You can use the images as intended, or you can use them in a variety of other, non-traditional ways. You're limited only by your imagination!
Here's my card:
S U P P L I E S
Cardstock: Bazzill; Stamps: Take the Cake (The Craft's Meow); Inks: Black (Hero Hues); Other Patina and Yellow Stickles (Ranger): Accents: Gems (Hero Arts)

If you want to make a line of Stickles, I've found it's often easiest to apply drops of the product and then use a toothpick or pin to spread it outward. This way, you have better control over the spread and consistency of it.
Make sure you aren't a victim of what I call "Stickle Sneezing." Often (especially after clearing a clogged nozzle), your first squeeze of the bottle will result in a small "sneeze" of Stickles that results in its sort of explosion of glittery goodness onto your project. Which ain't so good if you're trying to keep the Stickles confined to a specific spot. So always "burp" you bottle before using by squeezing it enough to remove excess air.

- Make card base.
- Stamp images in black.
- Apply drop of Yellow Stickles in center of candle flames and spread around with a pin.
- Gently and slowly squeeze dots of Patina Stickles along the tops and bottoms of each layer and on the cake stand's hanging drops. Use a tootpick or pin to spread them outward. Once dry, apply more Stickles using the same method until you get nice, thick coverage.
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
