Anyone up for cake?

I know, silly question huh?  We all want birthday cake,  the kind that doesn't find it's way directly to your hips!  I'm here today with another project to hopefully inspire you.... to stamp, not to eat cake.... well, maybe BOTH! I mean, I wouldn't say no to cake!

I began by stamping the awesome new "Celebrate with cake" stamp from TRHD on a scrap of Sweet Sentiment coloring paper. I colored it with my copic markers in fun teals and pinks.  Then I used some Nuvo drops to created that clear yellow glittery icing. .... then it was time to get to work.

I used an A2 size piece of Sweet Sentiment paper and pretty much all of my T, C and W Copic markers to create this little kitchen background.  I used R83, R81, and RV10 to create the little canisters on the counter, and a silver pen to draw in the hardware on everything. Then I then cut a bajillion layers of pinks and grays to mount the background to and used Distress Oxide inks to "distress" the edges. Then, I drank coffee.... no seriously, because I wanted something else but I didn't know what to do, then it totally hit me! I grabbed my entire bin of flowers and found these tiny roses. I grabbed 6 of them and wrapped them in a square of... wait for it.... brown packing paper! lol! Yup, it was the perfect consistency and thickness to wrap the flowers in and tied them with a little bakers twine bow. Then I used foam squares to give the cake a little pop off the page and stamped a sentiment from "Sassy Birthday" onto a scrap of paper.  I adhered that to the card and BOOM! Done! Now I can finish my cup of coffee...... mmmmmm.......

I know that was kinda wordy, but you all know how I am, so you're used to it by now.  I'm off to make another cup of coffee and see if there's any cake in this house.... there isn't, but a girl can dream.  Toodles!
