#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Piece of Cake and Cake Builder Punch Ombre Watercolour Card
It’s a cheerful happy card. At least that’s what it says to me.
I love birthdays, mine mostly (of course!), but I love that someone gets their own special day, that usually they don’t share with anyone else. And there’s cake. Just for them!!
So my happy cheerful cake is simple in that it’s got a lovely spotty background from the How Sweet It Is suite, then some stamping and punching with the Cake Builder Punch and Piece of Cake stamp set.
I did bring out some creativity there on the cake though. I used my Watercolour Pencils to add detail and then my Blender Pens for the main parts and a little Wink of Stella for the cake stand and spots.
It’s amazing how a simple stamp and punch with shading can make a card stand out, but the punch means that you can lift the image off the page with dimensionals and that’s where the illusion comes from. I love it!
I went simple on the stamping with one ink (Gorgeous Grape) that I stamped 3 times without reinking in order to get the ombre look. Again, easy.
Have a lovely day, and if it’s your birthday today, I hope it’s cheerful and happy too!
