IMPRESSION OBSESSION -  SWEET TREATS

  1. Stamped  image with Golden Glitz three times, painted with twinks, trimmed around base image, embossed from backside with stylus.
  2. Trimmed around needed flowers, etc. on 2nd image as needed to mount on first image.
  3. Trimmed around cupcake for inside and fondant cake for envy.
CARDFRONT AND ENVY:
  1. Card fold - Used Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles for four die cuts for card as described in Hinged Filigree Card Type 2 Tutorial.

  3. Envy - Mounted one leftover corner of DP from stenciled BG to envy; used Pentel eraser refill for dots with Golden Glitz; added fondant cake (separated cardstock to make it thinner); added sequins; mounted (separated) Sweet Treats sign.

EMBELLISHMENTS:
  1. The white cake and cookie frosting is Golden Iridescent Pearl Finish; the Pussy Willows, whipped cream, and candy dots on fondant and cake are Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.

That's enough for everyone, I am sure!!  ;-)   I am off to try and learn how to do things simpler.  ;-)  Thanks for stopping by to look and share!

There is a wealth of detail, color & texture on this gorgeous card. Love the S/B frame - the cream on the coffee & cupcake just invites one to take a schlurp of it. Bright spring flowers and the little poster of the cake looks so very intricate. Of course I love the B&White striped 'wallpaper' behind all the pretties. What a lovely little café scene you've created! TFS & also thanks for the setting info. Just followed your instructions (they were good, I was slow!), hope it will help readers. Happy Mom's Day, and Hugs too. Hot in SC this afternoon.

And speaking of sweet: thank you ever so much for all your warm, encouraging comments on my site! I've just come home from visiting my family (4 hour drive), and seeing your delightful, cheery words has wiped away some "missing" tears! So appreciated! Hugs to you!

Hi again, Shirley...Carol here, from just me: c back to answer your question about the embossing powder I used on my Congratulations card: Tsukineko. I have another one, but it leaves 'shimmers' all over, even when I use the buddy-cloth thingy. Tsukineko, however, is quite wonderful - and that's coming from somebody who doesn't really like embossing. Love the look, but oh, how I struggle! Mess-maker me! Thanks again for visiting my blog!
