Using this stamp set is truly a piece of cake, but you will have a hard time deciding which scrumptious image to use! At my gatherings, classes, and workshops this month, we will be using this stamp set and learning some sweet coloring techniques that are (you guess it!) a piece of cake.
My standard side-fold card is based on the Wishes sketch, "On the Edge." I first stamped the stack of presents onto the Colonial White piece with Vineyard Berry ink. I also stamped it on Baby Pink cardstock in VB, on the Heavenly Blue B&T in Chocolate, and in Heavenly Blue on White Daisy cardstock. These pieces were all cut out and paper pieced onto the original focal image. I used my waterbrush for some of the coloring and my Baby Pink and Vineyard Berry markers for other spots. I also gave my tower a bit of a shadow with a Grey Flannel marker. The finishing touches were truly a piece of cake: a Pretty Pin poked into a knot of ribbon, a Baby Pink button, and some Bitty Sparkles on the flowers.
Thanks for hopping by! Now head on over to see what sweet treat Lori has for us to enjoy!
