Hey there! I had an idea the other day for a new feature on my blog. Since every other week I post my card for the next Lawnscaping challenge anyways, I thought I would extend this “featuring a company” idea a little further. So for now, on Mondays that I don’t have a post for Lawnscaping, I’m going to be doing a card with just one stamp set. I’ll talk about what I like about the set and then make a card using some of my favorite aspects of the set. Sound like fun? Hey, we’ll try it out. :)
The stamp set I’m featuring today is one of my oldest favorites from Lawn Fawn: Bake Me a Cake.
Here’s the card I created with it. Everything on this card was created from part of the set – even the hearts in the background.
I brought out my beloved Watercolor Pencils for this card, coloring each cake piece separately before adhering the whole thing together. I love how this set really lets you make each cake specific to the card. I wanted this one to be more girly, so I added the scallops and used the more frilly base. Instead of worrying about cutting out the bottom curls, I just stamped it on the cardstock and adhered everything on top of it. Works like a charm!
I also made the cake nice and short by only using the 1st, 3rd and 5th layers. You can make a perfect vertical cake by using all of the layers together. I wanted the cake to fit inside of my current favorite labels dies – Labels Sixteen by Spellbinders. Isn’t that shape lovely? I know it’s kind of an oldie, but it’s definitely a goodie.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’re having a fabulous start to your week. I’m working hard in my “office” (a.k.a. left side of my bed room) and updating my portfolio, resume and working on more blog stuff to come. Good things are happening, yes!
Oh, and early update on the Peppermint Oil Capsules that I received in the mail today: they seem to be working! I have a nervous stomach, and just taking one has really made me more comfortable. First impression is a good one! I’ll keep you updated more as I get used to the new healthy products.
P.S. By the way, make sure to submit your “no coloring allowed” creation to the Young Crafters Unite blog by 11:59 pm CDT on the 15th to be entered to win the prize for this month! We’ll be choosing winners soon, so don’t forget to join in over there!
