Sweet Inspirations...

Welcome to the first day of Group Posts for the March Papertrey Ink Release.  Today is a fun day!  It's all about birthdays.  And cake.  Yes, I said cake.  This month there are several fun new products to turn your cards into a cake.  Now don't get all excited....they don't actually taste like cake.  ;)  But the possibilities are endless as far as making your own paper crafting cake.

Here is my first card using the new set called Sprinkles on Top and a die cut sentiment from the Best Birthday Dies.

First, I heat embossed the sprinkles onto watercolor paper and then did a little rainbow wash on each of the 3 strips.  I attached each strip to the scored card base.  I used the sentiment that comes in the Best Birthday Die and did a little stack up of about 4 True Black sentiments.  If I could redo this card, I would go back in and make the sentiments white.  I just decided that as I sit here and type. :)  And last I added some little star sequins to coordinate with the sprinkles.

This next project uses the Just Desserts stamp set and dies.  I die cut a Tag Sale: Quilted Die out of white card stock and then added in a banner in Berry Sorbet for the sentiment.

Next, I stamped the cake in Lemon Tart and added in flowers to finish it off.  Its very hard to see, but I heat embossed the Circle Scribble set in the background using some sparkle embossing powder.  I added in some Berry Sorbet Saddle Stitched Ribbon and tied it off with some yellow twine.

And for the last card, I made a little iced up cake ON the card and then added in some Big Birthday Candles on top.

I stacked up the Frosted Border dies on the bottom of the card, after I head embossed a fun new stamp from the Script Swirls: Birthday set on the Aqua Mist base.  I found some practice watercolor attempts (the ones I tried and they looked horrible but work for die cut pieces) and cut out the "12".  I cut another set out of white card stock and then pulled out the centers and added them to the candles. I coated those in stickles for some sparkle.  And that's that!
