Did Somebody Say Cake?

Hi everyone!

I have had a busy couple of weeks and wasn’t able to spend nearly as much time as I wanted in my studio. So, today I’m sharing a super quick and easy card that looks like it was way more work than it actually was. Truly, if you cut out the drying time for the glitter gel, this whole card took me about 20 minutes!

The cupcakes on this card were created by ink blending over layering stencils from Pretty Pink Posh! Oh my! So easy and so much fun! There are three stencils in the set – one for the cups, one for the frosting, and one for the sprinkles (and other details).

I simply ink blended a soft rainbow of cupcakes and then used Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter Gel in Iridescent to add the last layer of sprinkles.

Once the glitter gel was dry, I die cut and heat embossed my sentiments and Ta Da! A quick and easy birthday card that looks even better in real life than it does in the photos. That iridescent sparkle is just amazing!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
