It’s so exciting!! My new catalogue order arrived this week!! I petted, patted and drooled over it. But did I stamp with it? Nope!! I’ve had a busy couple of days and I’m working this weekend, so I’ll be playing next week. Can’t wait!!
We are casing the Birthday section of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue, pages 68-85.
Once again, there are so many amazing cards to case in this section. I realised that I haven’t used the Sweet Cupcake stamp set for ages, but I liked the sample on the page 85.
I decided to create the base layer on a separate piece of card so that if there was a mistake, I wasn’t wasting the whole card. I started with the Happy Birthday stamp from the Sweet Cupcake set using Tranquil Tide. I accidently had them a bit too far apart. When I looked at the stamp set, it has a very handy belated stamp! I stamped in it Powder Pink.
I stamped the cake base and the bottom layer of icing in Powder Pink. I then did the top layer of icing in Berry Burst. I also added some Clear Stella. You always need sparkle on a cake!! hehe!!
I used the Layered circle framelits for the base and the Birthday banner stamp set and matching Bunch of Banners framelits.
Actually I did use one of my new products!! You’ll never guess, cos you can’t see it!! I got the new mini dimensionals!!! They are too cute!!
I also added some thick white twine. I’m rather happy with the end result!! Now who’s birthday did I miss!
Next up on the hop is the lovely Julia.
