Sweet Treats Inspiration



The options in the Cake Decorating sets are endless.  We settled in with the idea to use the cute button topper for the cake to create a fun button cake, for a baby shower.

What we love about these topper details, is that there is no masking required.  Simply stamp the cake plate, the cake, and buttons to create a perfect cake. You can dress them up with more topper details, or leave it simple and sweet

Since we created this card with a shower theme in mind, we had to add a fun little favor.  The new Cube die cut makes the most adorable favor treat.  We die cut the Cube in the same On the Catwalk Cream cardstock, wrapped it with twine, secured with a button and added a flag banner.

We had fun creating this button cake and favor ensemble. You could very easily switch out the “congratulations” sentiment and stamp “you’re invited” to make it into an invitation, or “thank you” for your guests.

We love it when our stamps work together! Here we combined a few elements from our Seaside Summer series and our Apothecary stamps and die cuts.

The card base was stamped with the background quote in On the Catwalk Cream ink.

The apothecary jars were die cut and stamped with the jar frames and the seashell collages. A black banner flag was adhere to the card base and the jars were adhered on top of the banner with dimensionals. We stamped a simple sentiment in Rouge Ruffles ink for a punch of color.

Couture cupcakes are everywhere – and why not, they are super fun, and absolutely adorable.  We had a little fun today creating a fun Snowcone Cupcake ensemble.

We started off by adding a fun striped Cupcake Wrapper to the snowcone cupcake.  The cupcake wrapper was cut from Say Yellow to All Your Fans cardstock, then stamped with striped from the Designer Lines stamp set in Say Yellow To All Your Fans ink.  We wanted something subtle since the cupcake is so colorful and fun.

You can see here that the Cupcake Wrapper has a tuck tab flap, which holds the wrapper securely in place. no adhesive required – love that!

For the card we wanted to replicate the look of our cupcake.  We pulled out the Triangle Trinkets set to create our snowcone, and the By the Glass set to add the stripey straw. We colored the image with a few copics to create a sort of tie-dyed snowcone look.

The card base was stamped with the same striped background and the stamped panel was adhered right adjusted with dimensionals for a sweet summer treat ensemble.
