Bake Me a BIGGER Cake

Once again you're seeing "Bake Me a Cake" from Lawn Fawn. Instead of paper piecing, I decided to color it with Copics this time. It's REALLY hard to see, but the cake layers are a very light purple.
After I posted the pictures I realized the Stickles don't look dry yet. Sigh...maybe I'll come back later and post another picture with dry Stickles so you can see what it really looks like.

I was going to add a big white bow, but it just didn't look right. Ended up leaving the ribbon and removing the bow. Not sure what I think, but it does look better than with the bow! It was just too much.

I Baked Another Cake

It never ceases to amaze me how much different paper/colors can totally change the feel of a card! Yesterday's post used Catelynne and had a more casual look. Today's uses Genevieve and has a more formal look. Once again I used the "Bake Me a Cake" set from Lawn Fawn.

The twine isn't exactly twine, but I'm not sure what it is. It came wrapped around the stamp package when I got it in the mail. After I put the cake together I realized that it matched the twine pefectly!!!

I hadn't planned to add the pearls either, but after I dedided to put one at the top I just kept going! These pearl strips were EXACTLY the right length for each of the cake layers! Who would've thought?!?!?!

Bake Me a Cake!

Yesterday Lawn Fawn's "Bake Me a Cake" set arrived in the mail so today I headed to my craft room. Fun times! I'd been wanting this set for a while and kept my eye on it. On Black Friday I noticed that Lawn Fawn was offering free shipping so I ordered it. :-)
It's probably the most versatile set that I own! It has 35 bits and pieces to make cakes and cupcakes and all the decorations to go with. This is the first time I've ever done "surgery" on clear stamps by cutting words apart, but I got brave and did it. The sentiment came with Happy on top of Birthday, but I wanted it to be versatile too. :-)

The paper is from The Angel Company's Catelynn collection. The flames are Stickles.
