Today is a very gloomy day outside and we are supposed to get a big snow storm. To top it off I have caught a sinus cold and I feel miserable. Good thing there is card making to be done to take my mind off of everything! When I get to making and creating cards, the time just flies by and I feel exhilarated!
Today is the first in a series of three cards made with Stampin’Up!’s Piece of Cake stamp set. Today’s card is very easy and simple to make.
This is the stamp set I will be using. There are many possibilities for the cake and the occasion. We will be making the card above as well as a birthday card and a wedding card in the next blog posts.
Measurements: Whisper White card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches folded at 4 1/4 inches, Flirty Flamingo 4 1/2 x 1 inches, Whisper White 3 x 3 inches and 4 1/2 x 3/4 inches.
I will also be using Memento ink, and the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers in Light Flirty Flamingo, Dark Flirty Flamingo and Light Mango Melody (not pictured) .
The first step is to lay the sentiment on the strip of Whisper White to be able to get the sentence straight. Once you have it straight, press the clear block over the Photopolymer stamp to adhere it. Now use the Memento ink and stamp the sentiment to the right side of the Whisper White strip. Tip: Always use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat with the Photopolymer stamps to get the best image.
Using the Memento ink, stamp the cake and the platter onto the 3 x 3 inch piece of Whisper White.
There is a Cake Builder punch but it will not be available to order again until March 18, 2019. It was overwhelmingly popular. So we are going to fussy cut the platter and cake with the Paper Snips. Leave a 2-3 mm border around the outside line of the image.
Use the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker to color the stripes and the smaller circles.
Use the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker to color the larger circles and the layers.
Place the strip of Flirty Flamingo on the card just below half-way. Hold the cake in place and use a pencil to draw a light line where the top of the cake is.
Use the Memento ink to stamp the candles just at the pencil mark.
Use the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker to color the candles.
Use the Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker to color the flames.
Adhere the sentiment strip to the Flirty Flamingo strip.
Adhere the strip about 1/4 inches below the candles.
Use the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the cake and the platter.
Adhere the cake then the platter.
That was a quick and easy card that I hope you will enjoy making. It is a wonderful card to send when wanting to just send a hello or quick note and is sure to put a smile on the recipients face!
In the next post we will be making a Birthday card, so I hope you will join me!
