Good morning! I am thrilled to be guesting for Concord & 9th this month helping them celebrate their FOURTH birthday!! I have been a fan of C&9 since the very beginning (remember Map Love and Take a Bough dies?!) and I am honored to share projects with you this month! The entire August release is now available but today I’m focusing on the fun Cake Layers die and Confetti Turnabout stamps!
I love a cheerful sparkly cake and wanted to go all out with this one! So I started by stamping the Confetti Turnabout stamp with several shades of coral, mint, and navy ink onto fog grey cardstock. I used Altenew inks in Coral Bliss, Crimson, and Sapphire and Gina K Sea Glass ink for my turnabout! Without removing my card panel I stamped the turnabout again using versamark. Then I heat-embossed it with hologram clear sparkle embossing powder. I also stamped the sentiment with Sapphire ink and heat-embossed it with the same embossing powder.
I trimmed the fog grey panel down to 4″x5.25″ inches and adhered it to a white card base. Then I die-cut my cake from white cardstock using the Cake Layer dies. I added a little shading with copic markers to the main cake layer. I also colored the candles and flames using copics. For the icing I swiped the Coral Bliss ink pad over the piece a few times and then pressed a versamark pad to it and heat-embossed it with hologram clear sparkle embossing powder. I also die-cut the cake platter with silver foil cardstock. I adhered the candles and cake platter to the panel with liquid adhesive and then added the cake with foam mounting tape for a little extra dimension. I finished the card by adding a little nuvo crystal glaze to the candle flames!
Thanks so much for visiting and I’m excited to share more with you this month!!
