Hi all! Who is dying to have one of those ombre birthday cakes you see on Pinterest all the time?! Right? They are so trendy!
In keeping with this trend, I made my own ombre birthday cake from Winnie& Walter’s new Sugar Rush set by cutting out the cake image and blending it with picked raspberrydistress ink (good thing I looked up the ink color before posting this ... I always said it in my head as "pickled raspberry"! Eww, I don't even want to know what pickled raspberries would taste like.) Then I stamped the sentiment INSIDE the cake. OK, seriously, it is so awesome that the words in this set are sized to fit in the cake.
This set also comes with a cake (or cupcake, or donut pile) stand. The bottom of the card uses papers from Dear Lizzy's Neapolatin collection. The silver stamped design on the pink paper is from a set called The Hangover which you’ll see more of tomorrow. The centers are empty, so I colored them in with a white gel pen.
Here’s the adorable cupcake stamp with the yummy frosting! I used my new Copics to color the wrappers in single tones. I made a few more of these cupcakes, since I wasn’t sure what combination I was going to settle on, so those will be good to dress up the inside of another birthday card later. For the sentiment, I borrowed an “e” and a “s” to add to the end of “WISH”. Again, another birthday card that doesn’t completely say “Happy Birthday”. Plus it fills the space nicely!
Since it’s Winnie & Walter’s first birthday month, they’ve created an exclusive stamp set that they’ll be GIVING AWAY FREE with a qualifying purchase! It’s super cute, with a sparkler theme. Here’s a card I made earlier this week using some of the sentiments from that set. I really can’t wait to play with it some more.
I sure hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the new Winnie & Walter sets over these last three days. Come back for the final day tomorrow for my absolute favorite set of them all!
Thanks for looking!
