Let’s Celebrate with Cake!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the new stamp set, Celebrate with Cake! If this stamp set doesn’t quite look familiar, that’s because you cannot find it in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Wait, what?? That’s right, you can only find this stamp set in the online store as part of the Experience Creativity Projects. If you are new to stamping, this is a great way to start small and not feel so overwhelmed with trying to figure out where to begin! Celebrate with Cake is a super cute stamp set and so easy to create with!

To begin, cut a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, two of the corners are punched with the Detailed Trio Punch, and then is embossed with the Subtle DTIEF (this folder is from the previous catalog and not the new 3D folder):

The next layer is from the 2019-2021 In Color 6” x 6” DSP in Rococo Rose, first cut 1 ½” off one side, turn, and then cut in half at 3”. This will give you two pieces at 3” x 4 ½” and then cut the strip in half, giving you two pieces at ¾” x 6”:

For the card front you will need one piece of the DSP, on Shimmery White cardstock, stamp the cake in Merry Merlot ink, the candle in Sahara Sand and Daffodil Delight inks, cut out with the fourth largest Stitched Nested Labels, stamp the sentiment in Rococo Rose ink on Shimmery White cardstock, punch out with the 1 1/8” Scallop Circle Punch, use the 1 3/8” Scallop Circle Punch on Silver Foil Sheet to layer under the sentiment, and enough Rose Metallic Thread for under the stamped cake piece:

Adhere the DSP to the embossed cardstock at an angle, adhere the metallic thread to the back of the shimmery cardstock, and then adhere this to the DSP with dimensionals:

The sentiment is layered on the silver foil sheet, adhered with dimensionals, and the base layer is adhered to a Sahara Sand cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I wanted to give this card a little bling, so I used three of the largest Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems:

The inside is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the balloons are stamped in Sahara Sand ink, the party hat is stamped in Merry Merlot ink, the sentiment is stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Merry Merlot ink, fussy cut out and adhered with dimensionals, and the ¾” x 6” piece of DSP is adhered along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

Don’t you just love this color combo of Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, and Sahara Sand?? A great way to “play with” the new 2019-2021 In Colors is with the 6” x 6” DSP and have fun creating different color combinations. You can even just keep it simple and pair the DSP with the same color cardstock.

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
