Today I am sharing a card with a stamp set I really did not like–until I played with.  I actually borrowed from a friend to see if I liked it–and yep, it’s now on order!  (story of my life!)  I think I was just not liking the colors and papers used in the catalog.  It was way too busy for me!  But the images intrigued me.  This set really has lots of great possibilities if you can get past what you see in the catalog.  So, here is my Cake Soiree Card #1:

A Few Tips

  • Stamp the “solid” cake first in Crushed Curry and then the detail stamp on top in Pumpkin Pie–cut out with framelit
  • Adhere the DSP for the cake plate to a scrap of cardstock to make it a little sturdier, then cut out pieces with framelits
  • NOTE ON FRAMELIT:  The cake plate actually has the “fine details” as part of it, I just trimmed those off with a scissors to just have the round plate
  • Stamp & cut out the flower and leaves
  • Cut out the “branches” from Pear Pizzazz
  • Lots of dimensionals!  They are under the cake/plate and the flowers
  • For the bow–tie a bow in a piece of ribbon and then wrap the ends around the cardstock as shown and adhere them to the back
