Stamp Of The Week – Celebrate With Cake

Stamp Of The Week – Celebrate With Cake

Anyone for MORE cake?!

Time for a NEW Stamp Of The Week (SOTW) and this week I am dusting off… Celebrate With CakeCelebrateWithCakepp

Todays card came together pretty quickly this afternoon whilst the beans were eventually napping. I had a cake top already prepared from last night so all there was to do was decide on a layout and elements to mix with the cupcake.

Week 205 - Chevron

When I saw the new challenge over at CASology HERE, which this week is to use chevrons I thought, why not, chevrons could be pretty cool with a cupcake!

And this is what I came up with…

2016SOTW66

 

I started by stamping the cupcake case in Hero Arts Pink to Red Ombré ink and then masked it to stamp the chevrons from Background Builders: Chevrons (Retired) in SU! Going Grey ink.

The chevrons are then lightly watercolored, as I didn’t use watercolour CS. I used my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers to do this and added a light coating of Wink Of Stella over the top too. I then adhered the glittered cupcake frosting from yesterday, stamped the sentiment and embellished with a few SU! It’s My Party Enamel Dots.

Because I wasn’t totally sure where this card was going, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out and I think the chevrons work well with the design.

As you can’t have a party without CAKE, I am entering my card into the challenge over at Gobal Design Project. Their challenge HERE is a theme…

Ok, that’s all from me tonight, I have a TON of work to do and a class on Saturday to prepare for along with a workout in the gym!

I will be back tomorrow with more inspiration featuring this set and don’t forget that this set is discounted HERE on the website this week.

Thanks for stopping by :)
