It’s a Sweet Party!!

Welcome to the

Layers of Color
Cake Decorating Party!

This may just prove to be the most yummy blog hop you have ever experienced.  There is an amazing group of  crafting chefs who can’t wait to inspire you with their delicious pieces of art work.

If you had a chance to see the sneak I posted a few days back, you’ll recognize this as the birthday card I created for our celebration!  I have a few good high school friends who celebrate their birthdays in this month but other than that, I don’t have any close family members to shout out to this month but I know I will be sending this out to someone special very shortly! 

To create this card I stamped a Layers of Color Floweret stamp and a Happy Birthday sentiment from the Happy Wishes Clear Art stamp set on cream cardstock.  I then used a Spellbinders S4-116 Standard Circle SM to cut and emboss a circle.  I framed it with a S4-293 Lacey Circles.  I covered my card base with pattern paper, trim and pearls.

After coloring my stamped image with my copic markers, I adhered the entire circle on to my card base. I then added a bow and a Webster’s Pages Cameo to top of it off!

Now, this is my first attempt at a piece of paper cake.  LOL It was quite fun to put together.  I used the same Layers of Color Floweret stamp that I used on my card and fussy cut around it. There are two of the same image, one on each side.  Then to add a little texture to the frosting on the bottom, I used a Layers of Color Belle Brocade art Stencil and Clearsnap Chalk Ink.  The very delicious, chocolate rim was created using Spellbinders Fair Isle Borderabilities® Petite die template.
