Good morning! I am super excited to be a guest designer for the August Pin-Sights Challenge! The Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge is a monthly inspirational challenge based on a Pinterest Inspired photo that is located on the CLASSroom blog. A random challenge participant will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store. To be eligible, you must use Essentials by Ellen products and the photo badge as inspiration. There is an InLinkz link-up on the challenge post where you can enter!
And here’s the beautiful inspiration photo for August:
I loved the colors and I loved that beautiful cake in the center photo. I decided to use the new Mondo Peony to create my own floral wedding cake.
I started by stamping the Mondo Peony onto watercolor paper with versamark and then heat-embossed it with gold tinsel embossing powder. Next I colored it with zigs, blended it with a waterbrush, and fussy cut each flower and leaves. Next I trimmed down rough watercolor paper to create my two cake layers and adhered them together. I used a piece of the ribbon that Ellen Hutson provides in each order to add a little definition between the layers. Then I stamped the sentiment from Lovely with versamark and heat-embossed it with the same gold tinsel embossing powder. Finally I tucked my flowers in around each layer of the cake and added a few metallic gold sequins for a little extra sparkle.
And that’s my card! Don’t forget to enter the challenge for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Ellen Hutson!
Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful day!
