Card Maker/Avery Elle Blog Hop



I was so excited to play with some new stamps and dies for this blog hop, sponsored by Avery Elle and CardMaker Magazine.  I love stamps and dies which coordinate with each other.  Avery Elle is giving away a $30 gift certificate at the end of the hop, so be sure to check out their blog.  Hopefully, you have arrived at my blog from Melania's blog.  If not, and you'd like to start at the beginning -- it starts at the CardMaker Blog.

The stamp set I am highlighting today is called Bring on the Cake, which has three large images, three small images, and a ton of sentiments!  There are five dies in the die set.   I think my first card would be great for a guy -- what with all the browns and blues. I love the play on words in the sentiment. After coloring my bundt cake, I added some clear 3-D Lacquer on the icing to give it a little sheen.



I used some old retired Stampin' Up DSP on my second card, featuring the slice of cake.  I added the cherry to complement the design in the patterned paper background.


My third card is fun -- with the cupcakes and sprinkles.  (Who doesn't like cupcakes and sprinkles!)  I actually used some more of that same Stampin' Up DSP paper pack on this one, too.


Thanks for stopping by today.  The next stop on the hop is JJ's blog.   And don't forget to check out how you can win the $30 gift certificate at the Avery Elle Blog.
