SUO97- Celebrate with Something Yummy!
Time for the new SUO97 SUO-Only Challenge is “Something Yummy” and I decided to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers SC488 Sketch Challenge.
I thought of our current sets with cakes, coffee and tea but chose to use a non-traditional stamp along with a sneak peek of one of the new In-Colors to create my stacked cake :-)
I hope you will have the time to visit and check out the rest of the fantastic Design Team projects at both sites and use your Stampin’ Up! Only products to come join in on the fun!
To create this card:
Repeatedly stamp the image from Lovely Romance using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Carefully cut out the pieces and cut one of the images down to two “flowers” and the other to one “flower”.
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and mount onto the Blackberry Bliss card base.
Also emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock using the Pretty Print Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Layer both onto pieces of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
Using a 1 ¾” Square Punch to punch out a piece of the Moonlight Designer Series Stack and layer the Dotted Scallop Punch piece behind to create the element for the sketch (punched from Blackberry Bliss cardstock).
Using Silver Foil paper, create the cake stand (I used a scrap remaining from the Finishing Touches Framelits™ for the top portion, a scrap vertical strip for the center and bottom and a 1” Circle punched piece cut in half for the rounded areas at the top and bottom). Use the Big Shot™ with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss all of the pieces and glue together to create the stand.
Layer the cake pieces alternating with strips of Silver Foil paper to create the stacked cake onto the Perfect Polka Dot Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Use the Scallop Trim Border Punch along with Silver Foil paper, trim and add to the silver layers. Add the Rhinestone strips to the top of the stamped images and Pearls to the Scallop Trim and centers of the flowers.
Layer the DSP piece, Pretty Print embossed Smoky Slate panel to the card base. Add the cake image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the 3/8” Bllack berry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon Double Bow.
Stamp the sentiment using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out using the 1” Circle Punch and punch another 1” Circle to cut in half and layer behind the sentiment.
Add the Rhinestones below the sentiment and a few Pearls to the lower left hand corner to finish off the card.
