Happy Monday! I'm so excited to be part of the STAMPlorations Belated 6th Birthday Celebrations and we will be partying all week! We have five days of new fabulous STAMPlorations product releases and there are several ways for you to play along too. Today over on the STAMPlorations blog I'm so happy to take part in the release of Shirley's gorgeous new Layered Cake Bake stamp set. There are lots of great prizes up for grabs and many ways to win. You can comment on the blog posts and the designer's blogs, you can link up to the Wishlist Linky Party or share your birthday- or celebration themed creations in the Birthday Linky Party.
This is such a fun and versatile stamp set and it will work for so many different celebrations, or combine it with one of the many coffee stamp sets for a coffee and cake vibe! For my first card, I filled in the delicious slice of cake with a galaxy. I started by stamping the outline of the cake in black and heat embossing with clear powder. I then used my Gansai Tambi watercolours to create a galaxy and splattered some white gouache paint on the cake and some black watercolour on the background. I used the candles from the stamp set to create a black and white background, die cut the main image using the Crazy Double Running Stitch Nesting Rectangle Dies and heat embossed one of the fun sentiments from the set in white onto black card.
For my second card, I stamped the cake and stand in embossing ink and heat embossed in clear powder. I then watercoloured a rainbow background for the cake. I used a grungy stamp set to add some black dots and heat embossed a sentiment from Sweet Cravings in white on black card.
For my third card I stamped many layers of cake and the cake stand in a rainbow of Distress Oxides. I then used a wet watercolour brush to pull the colour from the outline of the cake slices to colour the inside to give it a pretty pastel colour. I finished the card by adding one of the clear stickers from Birthday Word Art. Quick and easy but super fun!
Last but not least I created a super easy and quick tag. I started by attaching a sticker from Sweet Backgrounds Clear Stickers onto white card and die cut with Stitched Tags Nesting Dies. All I had to do was stamp the sentiment from Layered Cake Bake in permanent black ink and add a ribbon.
