Happy Birthday America!


Happy Birthday America!

Explosion Box


This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we’re celebrating America’s birthday so I created another explosion box with a cake inside.  I used My Digital Studio to print the inside panels.  I used the instructions from Glitter Adventure to make the box.  The cake was made with the Sizzix Cake, Three Tier 3D (Pop-Up) die.  This die is retiring and now 40% off.  See Accessories under the Last Chance List button on the right.  With this die the cake is so easy to make!  Create a project to celebrate America’s birthday and hop on over to HSS and show us your red, white and blue.

No calorie birthday cake

The slice of cake I made for you today has no calories.  It’s a fun box you can decorate as a party favor or to fill with goodies or a gift card.  The box is made from a die I’ve had for a while and it was time to use it.  One of the great things about the Big Shot is you can use different kinds of dies from different manufacturers.  I die cut the cake slice then embossed with the Finial Press Folder.  I decorated the slice with doilies punched from the new Doily Triple Layer Punch, pearls and ribbon.  I served up my cake slice on a circle scallop plate I embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  The candle is made with Very Vanilla card stock then decorated with a strip of Melon Mambo.  I freehand the flame using Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight card stock.  Making this cake slice was a lot of fun.
