Welcome to our monthly Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop. This month’s theme is our upcoming Sale-A-Bration and Spring/Summer catalogue. You are currently visiting Sandra from Norfolk, UK and I hope you enjoy todays creative projects, as you hop around the globe.

Today I am sharing with you my first card created using the Piece of Cake #148610 stamp set from the Spring/Summer (Occasions) catalogue, together with the co-ordinating Cake Builder Punch #148525 when buying together as a bundle, saving 10% using code #150579.
I’m looking forward to creating many more projects for my catalogue launches and classes in January.  

Starting with a Barmy Blue base card, a Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit #145372 was cut from the centre of a mat layer of Shimmery White card #121717.  The cake and cake stand were stamped and punched from the mat layer too.

The candles were stamped at the top of the oval and together with the cake and stand, coloured in using corresponding inks.  Because the colours I needed were not available in watercolour pencils, I tapped the ink pad onto the corner of a tile, picking up colour with a Blender pen #102845.

The ribbon is Organdy Ribbon Combo pack #149623  which is one of the Sale-A-Bration item available to choose for FREE with a £45 spend.  It also co-ordinates with the Gingham Gala 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper #148554 which you will be able to find on p35 of the Spring Summer catalogue.  One side is a small check pattern that I have used on this card, the other side is a larger check.  Watch out for more samples coming soon.

Here I have applied a strip of tape runner through the back of the oval and positioned in a zig-zag until I was happy.  The topper as then attached using 3D foam pads.

I chose to add another 3D layer fo the bottom tier of cake.

Finally, I added some Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins #148561 randomly on the front of the finished card.
