Piece of Cake Wedding Card!

I really feel bad for anyone who was looking forward to a big gathering for their wedding this year in the midst of this pandemic. How awful to have made plans over the last year and then not be able to have your event the way you envisioned it. However, people will still be getting married. And who wants to run to the store right now? Having a handmade Wedding card on hand keeps you prepared.

This wonderful Wedding card is made with the Stampin’ Up!® Piece of Cake stamp set. This set is very versatile because there are 6 different cake stamps. Check it out here.

Measurements: Whisper White Card stock (CS): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches and 4 x 2 inches for stamping the cake; Purple Posy CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches; Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5 x 3 3/4 inches; and Silver Foil: 4 x 2 inches.

Using Memento Black Ink stamp the cake on the bottom of the 4 x 2 inch Whisper White CS. Now stamp the floral cake topper on the other end. You will need room to use the Cake Builder Punch in a minute.

I used Stampin’ Write Markers in Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Old Olive and Shaded Spruce to color the cake and flowers. I used the Highland Heather Stampin’ Write Marker to color the two tiny flowers located on the cake itself.

I colored the icing decorations in Gorgeous Grape. I left some of the flowers on the cake topper white because I thought they looked like daisies. The leaves are colored in Old Olive with a small amount of Shaded Spruce.

Use the Cake Builder punch to punch out the cake. You will also get a cake stand which we are not going to use. You could save the Whisper White cake stand for another card.

You will need to fussy cut the floral cake topper. It is so small!

Use the Cake Builder Punch to punch a cake stand out of the Silver Foil. Set the pieces of the cake aside for now.

Now for a trick! Hold the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Purple Posy with the 5 x 3 3/4 inch Perennial Essence DSP as shown. You may use some temporary adhesive if you wish.

Use the 2 inch Circle Punch to punch a circle in the upper left quadrant. Do not punch too close to the left edge of the card because the cake will be adhered there.

Here’s the trick! Now separate the DSP from the Purple Posy CS. Use the 2 1/4 inch Circle Punch to enlarge the circle on the DSP. This allows the Purple Posy to show through the DSP on the inside of the circle and be perfectly aligned!

Place the Purple Posy and Perennial Essence DSP pieces together and lay them on the front panel of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White CS card base. This will show you where to stamp the sentiment.

I also placed the cake and stand on the card temporarily to help with the placement of the sentiment. The “Happy Wedding Day” sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink in the right upper portion of the circle.

I recommend using a lot of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the Perennial Essence DSP.

Carefully adhere the Perennial Essence DSP to the Purple Posy CS. Next, use your Bone Folder to help get a nice crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch score line on the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White CS card base.

Adhere the Purple Posy and DSP panel to the front of the Whisper White CS card base, keeping in mind how you want the sentiment to look.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to all of the cake pieces. Adhere the cake first making sure there is space for the cake topper. Now adhere the cake topper and finally the cake stand.

Tie a bow and add it to the cake stand with a Mini Glue Dot. I used the Metallic Edged Ribbon in silver. (For help with tying a bow, refer to the video in this blog here.

Now for some Bling! I added the Rhinestone Basic Jewels sort of scattered on the Perennial Essence DSP. I placed 2 small Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the center of the flowers on the cake.

And Viola! You have a beautiful Wedding card ready to go! I think I went a little crazy with the Bling! Oh, well. It makes for a very sparkly card!

Thanks again for visiting my blog. I have so much fun creating cards and making a blog post. I hope you try some of the cards. Even if you do not have the specific paper or stamp set, perhaps my cards can be an inspiration for one of your own! Stay safe and healthy!

Autumn Bouquet

Fall flowers are as beautiful as fall leaves. I love all the oranges and yellows! For this bouquet I threw in a little Baja Blue and Melon Mambo.

The stamp set is Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Bouquet. This one is a little treasure! The flowers are multiple, but as you can see, so are the sentiments! There is a little something for just about every occasion. Today we will be making a Thank you card.

Measurements: Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/2 inches and 4 3/4 x 2 3/4 inches; Calypso Coral 5 x 3 inches.

Stampin’ Up! Ink needed: Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight. You will also need: Memento ink; Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack; clear blocks: A, B, C, D and E; and adhesives: Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini glue dots and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Be sure to use the Stampin’ Pierce mat since these are Photopolymer stamps. I placed a black cardstock behind the card piece so you could see it better. Using the E block and Old Olive ink, stamp the bouquet stems slightly to the left of center on the 4 3/4 x 2 3/4 inch piece of Whisper White.

Use one of the larger flowers on the C block to stamp with the Calypso Coral. Tip: I usually try to use an odd number of elements as it seems to be more pleasing to the eye.

Use the D block and the lily in Daffodil Delight next.

Use the smaller full flower on the A block to stamp in Balmy Blue. Next use the flower center in Melon Mambo to stamp the center of the Calypso Coral flowers.

Continue to use the flower center in Melon Mambo to make 3 small flowers in the bouquet.

Use the Memento ink and the lily flower center to accent the lilies.

Add leaves in Old Olive to round out the bouquet and fill in any gaps.

Stamp the “Thanks a Bunch” sentiment in Old Olive on the lower right hand corner of the card front.

Adhere the floral bouquet piece to the 5 x 3 inch piece of Calypso Coral.

Adhere Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the bouquet/Calypso Coral piece. As you can see, I have cut several of my Stampin’ Dimensionals in half. I use a full Stampin’ Dimensional in the center.

Remove the protective coating on the Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere to the card front just over the sentiment.

Use the Magnolia Lane ribbon in the combo pack to make a bow. Adhere the bow with a glue dot.

And Viola! You have a gorgeous autumn bouquet of thanks for someone special!
