It’s a Piece of Cake Wedding Card

I hadn’t had an opportunity to use the Piece of Cake stamp set and Cake Builder punch and was inspired by the color challenge of Petal Pink, Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create a wedding card.  This summer I’ll be going to my nephew’s wedding and want to be ahead and get my card made.  I like to have different types of cards handy so I made a couple of wedding cards with this color combo.

I used Whisper White as my card base then used Shimmery White for the second layer.  It’s hard to see in the photo how pretty this paper shimmers.  I used the Bokeh dots stamps from the stamp set Beauty Abounds to stamp the dots.  The cake is stamped with Momento black then colored with Stampin’ Write markers.  The cake plate is die cut from Silver Glimmer paper.  The Calypso Coral two hearts were die cut using the retired Owl Builder punch.  I colored the hearts with Clear Wink of Stella.  It’s hard to see but I used small pearls on the flowers.  The greeting is from the Piece of Cake set.  The ribbon is from the new annual catalog, Petal Pink 5/8″ (1.6 Cm) Organdy Striped Ribbon.  This ribbon is so pretty.  The bottom of the layer is die cut using the edge die from Magnolia Memory Dies.  I love how it finished the bottom of the layer.   I’ll be using this edge on many of my cards.  To highlight the edge I backed it with DSP from the Magnolia Lane set.

You’re So Sweet

My popsicle card was inspired by the inspiration challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I used So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzaz to create this cool treat.  I decided to use many items from my stash that are retired but there are so many color possibilities and embellishments you can use from your stash to create this card.

Just a Note to LIFT your Spirits

I was inspired to create this card by the ‘Lift me Up’ bundle and the color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments of Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate.

Using the ‘Lift me Up’ bundle which includes the ‘Lift me up’ stamp set and ‘Up and Away’ thinlits dies was so easy to create the beautiful die cut hot air balloon and clouds with this set.

Although the color challenge was to use Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate, I used Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride to create an hombre effect on the balloon.
