Piece of Cake Cards

February's Stamp of the Month is my ALL TIME FAVORITE!!! And SO MUCH FUN to work with!! Here are the cards we will be making at one of my workshops this month...

This is the first card I made. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Swiss Dots to emboss the Hollyhock cardstock, then lightly sanded it to expose the white core! I paper-pieced and raised the cake and platter on 3-D foam tape. I also added Liquid Glass to the candles and flames. There is a little Prisma Glitter on the red part of the flame....

This is the next card I made. I love how simply changing the paper color creates a whole new purpose! I really think this could be a wedding card with Congratulations instead of Happy Birthday! This time I added some of our new Bitty Sparkles to the cake!

This next card is a pattern from our Wishes book called Center Circles. I heat embossed the sentiment and dry embossed the dots. The cake is raised on 3-D foam tape and I again added a little Liquid Glass to the flower centers and candle. I added Liquid Glass/Prisma Glitter to the flame.

This is another Wishes card called Corner Shop. I added Liquid Glass and Prisma Glitter to the swirls on the cupcakes only. Once that dried, I added Liquid Glass to all of the cupcake frosting! The cupcakes are raised on 3-D foam tape.

This little guy makes a cute little gift card. It's also a Wishes pattern called Mini Window. I added Liquid Applique to the frosting and Liquid Glass/Prisma Glitter to the cherries! And of course, raised them up on 3-D foam tape! Everything is better in 3-D! LOL!

  1. Christine, this is a bit of a silly question; I'm trying to create a similar look to your stamped pieces but mine aren't looking as nice. Did you stamp on white paper and then colour? If so, what did you use to colour? I'm trying markers but they just don't look at uniform, I can see strokes and such.

  2. Heather, some images are paper pieced and some I colored in with markers. When using the markers, I tend to use the brush end and just do feather like strokes. Try to go over each area only once for the best look. I hope that helps! Email me if you need more help.
