Mint Motif Reveal

Congratulations 3

Supplies:  Stamps:  Mint Motif (Cake Shoppe, Cake Shoppe Too); Pattern Paper:  Pink Paislee (365 Degrees), Collage Press;  Die Template: Spellbinders Labels Eleven;  Flowers:  Prima;  Stickles:  Ranger;  Crystals – Taylor Expressions; Ink – Clearsnap (Colorbox)

It’s so fun to be able to introduce to you another dual set of Mint Motif’s that is just being revealed today.  The first set is called Cake Shoppe and is full of endless possibilities!  Both of these sets are available exlusively at i{heart}papers.com

But the second set called Cake Shoppe Too is just icing on the cake when it comes to all the possibilities!  (he he…sorry for the pun….it’s late!)  This set provides an extra layer, a topper, a candle and more sentiments!  These are so fun to create with.  I know you are going to love them!  It’s hard to tell in the photo but I smeared some Ranger Stickles to the surface of mine to add some shimmer!

My family is headed to a family wedding this weekend.  Thinking ahead to that and creating this card reminded me of all the hustle and bustle before my wedding.  I tried to create my card to represent what my cake looked like.  It was the absolutely YUMMIEST ever, and beautiful too!  My Mom worked so hard at making it because I desperately wanted to have an Italian Cream Cake.  There is just simply no better tasting cake.  Then my Aunt jumped in and did the final touches with decorating it.  What precious memories. 

So, do you have a favorite cake?  I’d love to hear what kind it is!  I’ve not yet tried one that is better than this family, secret recipe!  Nope…not going to share!  LOL  You could probably google it though!  LOL

Check out what the rest of the designers created with these sets!  One lucky person who leaves a comment will be randomly drawn by Kimberly to win both of these sets!

Glad you were here…have a blessed day!
