March first means CAKE!!!

I am so excited to finally be able to share the new stamp set being released at The {Stamps} of Life today!!! It's CAKE! CAKE! CAKE! And adorable cake, too! I love this set. I have had so much fun coming up with different ways to embellish these cakes. I have a whole list of ways I still want to decorate them! Here are two cards to help you start drooling over this set!

On this first card, I used SEI's "With All My Heart" patterned papers. They have a shimmer to them, which makes the cake look extra fancy in real life :) I stamped the cake layers on the BACK of my patterned paper, so that I wouldn't have any lines showing. I thought they would be distracting for the look I was going for. I love the way it turned out!

On the second card, I used blue cardstock and a scalloped strip from SEI's new Corrine collection. I popped the cake up on foam tape for some added dimension and added a few little pearls and ribbon to the card to finish it off.

These two cakes are very "wedding-y" (Yes, it's a word. I say so.) But the great thing about this stamp set, is that this could VERY easily be a birthday cake, done in bright crazy colors, or a big fat chocolate cake done in gorgeous shades of brown. I know I always say, "The possibilities are endless," but seriously people - they ARE.

And really, the only important thing about this stamp set, and the number one reason you NEED it. . . .it's CAKE.
Enough said.
(And if I haven't convinced you, go watch Stephanie's video, on the TSOL blog!)

Lovely cards, Laura! I especially
like the elegant CAS blue card. What
did you use for the scallop edge?

the scalloped edge is a border strip from SEI, from the Corrine collection, (along with the blue cardstock.)
