SIP #130 Say No To Christmas with Stampin' Up! Cake Soiree

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a terrific start!  Last weekend was a fabulous weekend for us and I'm looking forward to the end of the work week so I can enjoy an extra long Christmas weekend!  I'll be off work for 4 days in a row!  Woo Hoo!  I just have to get through 3 more work days after today and it's sweet long weekend freedom!  

As usual, Tuesday means another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge and this week's it's Just Say No to Christmas which basically means.. make anything BUT a Christmas Card!  Well isn't that easy!

Have you ever had a day where everything just goes wrong?? Well that was the type of day I was having when I started playing around with this Cake Soiree Stamp Set and Sweet Soiree Framelits.  First of all.. it's a fabulous stamp and die set.  There are just soooo many possibilities.  I started stamping, coloring, and playing around with it and everything I tried to do just didn't work.  I finally decided to just breathe in, make it a little crazy and love it like that. lol

My background was created on SU watercolor cardstock by pressing some Tim Holtz Distress Inks onto wax paper... I used Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry.  After inking the wax paper, I sprayed it with my Distress sprayer and then squished it onto the watercolor paper.  I used my heat tool to dry it.  Once completely dry, I embossed the Best Wishes Sentiment in the upper right hand corner.  I used my Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the watercolored panel.   The cake was heat embossed in black onto Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the Stampin' Blends to color in the case.  The cake stand was cut out of Gold Foil Cardstock.   The flowers on the top of the cake were stamped in Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo and the leaves in Old Olive.   I added some gold sequin trim in the upper left corner with a stapler and then added a some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Confetti.  I adhered the panel onto another panel of Old Olive Cardstock and then adhered that onto Basic Black panel cut with the Mama Elephant Scallop die from the All Prettied Up Creative Cuts Dies.  All of that was adhered to a top folding Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card base.  Kind of crazy.. a lot going on... but I still like it!   I had tried mounting it just on the Old Olive and then white but it really needed the black to make the colors pop!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
