Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Icing on the Cake

For last week’s Card & Cuppa project, I reached for a brand new stamp set from the Annual Catalogue.

Here is the project:

Stampin' Up! Icing on the Cake

This stamp set is called Icing on the Cake.

I’m sorry to say that it didn’t instantly grab me as I looked through the new Catalogue.  I’ll happily admit that I love baking cakes, and am even happier to eat them, but icing isn’t my forte. But, when I saw that the set was only £15 for 20 stamps, I thought why not give it a try.

After using it for this project, I’m happy I chose it.

Page 79 of the catalogue is my inspiration for this design.  You’ll notice that the project is a combination of the two designs on the page.

The rose images are just beautiful.  You can stamp the most detailed of the images and it looks lovely, however, when you use both two-step stamps together it’s just stunning.

What’s great about these images is that they are easy to line up to stamp multiple times across a page.  They are also very forgiving so it doesn’t matter if you don’t get them quite right.

A combination of Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach and Pool Party makes this sweet card.

Cutting the leaves and roses out by hand and raising them onto Dimensionals gives a lovely finishing touch.

This stamp set was definitely a hit with the attendees who were keen to get their hands on their own sets.

Join us for one of next week’s Card & Cuppa sessions.  Book your place by 18:00 the night before.

Happy crafting
