Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake of the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a sketch challenge and I was excited to use one of the new sets that came out today in the 2019 Occasions  Catalog.  “Piece of Cake” was in my per-order and because I loved the stamp set and the fact that it has a matching punch made it a winner in my book.  You can order this set today too!

Here is the sketch:

I took a few liberties today, going from an oval panel to rectangle (new in the Occasions Catalog) and making my ribbon into a bow.  I love bows and just had to tweak it a bit!

Stampin’ Up! Piece of Cake:

Here is the card recipe:

Card base: Whisper White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Balmy Blue 5-1/4 x 4

DSP: Tranquil Textures 5-1/8 x 3-7/8

Stitched Rectangle: Whisper White (NEW)

Here are the details:

The cake:

  • Stamp the cake and cake stand image into a piece of Whisper White card stock
  • Color your cake ribbons using the Balmy Blue and Rich Razzleberry Stampin Blends
  • Color in the top flower with Rich Razzleberry Stampin Blends
  • Color in the bottom flower with Balmy Blue Stampin Blends
  • Color in the cake stand with your Mint Macaron Ink Pan and your Blender Pen
  • Punch both the cake stand and cake with the coordinating punch

  • Stamp your sentiment on to the Whisper White Rectangle with some Black Tuxedo Memento Ink
  • Stamp the smaller sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White card stock and cut it to size then adhere to the front of the rectangle with dimensionals
