Piece of Cake… a birthday cake for you

Hi Crafty Friends,

I couldn’t resist sharing this huge piece of cake with you using the new Neat & Tangled Piece of Cake stamp and die set. First of all, I LOVE cake and second, this is a super fun coloring project. This card was made with a number 8 candle for my granddaughter’s friend’s birthday party but I hope this doesn’t discourage you from trying it yourself, it works for any age person young at heart. It is so festive and fun!

Brilliant Blooms, Two Ways and Two Color Schemes

Hi Everyone,

I started writing this post and found the explanation was getting too wordy, so… the next best thing I could think of was to create a video to explain all the ins and outs. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel.

The two card designs were made using the Brilliant Blooms stamp and die set by My Favorite Things. I have used this set before (click here to check it out) and was impressed by the versatility and beauty of the simple blossoms so decided to give it another look.

In these cards, I created a background by stamping and embossing the flowers, cut out the center and add a gracious sentiment from the Paper Artsy Eclectica3 stamp set. The left-over cut-out center was then used to create the second card.

Take a look at the video of the two different card design styles and colors.
