Have your Cake.....

Hello again everyone: I have a quick card to share that was partially finished about a week ago, sometimes I like to just stamp my images, color them and put them away for the times when I need a card in a hurry, which is often the case with my daughters who sometimes ask for a card with only a few hours in advance. This card will be linked to the Retro Sketches #214.


I stamped this delicious slice of cake from the retired Flourishes set called "Pinwheels and Popsicles" onto a piece of Canson water color paper and die cut it with a circle die, then colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter. I stamped the little roses again, colored and fussy cut them to add a bit of detail. I added some really fluffy and shimmery yarn and some Rhine Stones, I embossed the background panel with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment was stamped with Strawberry Slush and punched with the SU Modern Label punch (retired).


Here is a picture of the finished inside.


The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Perfectly Penned", the candles are from another retired SU product, this was a candle wheel but I just took the rubber off the wheel and cut the individual candles, this way I can play with them better.
Here is the sketch that inspired this card.

and this are the stamps I used.

Thank youi for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  1. How delicious is that cake! It almost looks like pink pipe cleaner behind the image. Or is it some type of cord? I really like it. I believe I have that same embossing folder. Yummy card!

    1. Thank you Lisa, the cake looks indeed yummy and decadent.
      There is pink yarn behind this image, I bought this ball of yarn a while back because it's so fluffy and shiny.
      I hope you use this embossing folder soon, it's really pretty.
