I love Spice Cake!

My dear friend needed a birthday card for her dad and I was delighted she asked me to make one for her! As I have mentioned before I think the majority of my supplies are on the feminine side so this was a good challenge! Now, I have "manly" colors to work with so I needed some "manly" embellishments.
Thank goodness for my new Spice Cake Designer Series Paper! I have fallen in love. The colors, patterns and versatilty have won my heart! I think Stampin' Up's Antique Brads and the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon were a perfect touch!


I cannot wait to make more cards with this paper! I love the coordinating Spice Cake fabric that matches the Designer Series Paper too. Let me know what you think of this paper. I would love to hear your thoughts!

Chalkboard

We recently made lovely cards using the "chalkboard" technique and everyone loved it! It is so easy and fun. It is a great way to add color to your card!

For my example I stamped the Basic Black card stock using Whisper White Craft ink, it will look very similar to a chalkboard. While the ink is still tacky I used my Stampin' Pastels to color the flowers. It is so easy to blend the colors as much or as little as you like. Since all of the Stampin' Up colors coordinate I was able to use Rich Razzleberry card stock as the card base and use Rich Razzleberry from the pastels as the center of my flowers to tie it all together. This card was a hit!

All Stampin' Up supplies used:

  • Rich Razzleberry card stock
  • Basic Black card stock
  • Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad
  • Rich Razzleberry 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon
  • Top Note for the BigShot
  • For all you do - stamp set
  • Stampin' Pastels
  • Decorative Label Punch
  • Four Frames - stamp set
