Shabby Chic Birthday Cake

Happy Saturday all!  It is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog plus today is extra special because it is my birthday!  I decided I would make my very own birthday cake for the occasion ;)
 I started out with a 3D birthday cake file from SVG Attic's SDS 3D Cake Box Kit and papers from DCWV's Country Floral stack.
The three tiers are made with different papers and the flowers match the pink and yellow roses on the middle tier.  The small flowers were created using the Wooly Blossom 5 Petal Flower from SVG Attic's JGW Winter Wonderland set. For those, I cut 2 layers of petals at 1.5" each.  I spritzed them with water, scrunched them and let them dry before assembling.
The cake topper rose is much more full, but it also is created from the Wooly Blossom 5 Petal Flower from SVG Attic's JGW Winter Wonderland set.  I used 8 layers on this one, two of each of the following sizes:  2.36", 2",  1.64",  1.28".  I also misted these with water and scrunched them prior to assembly.
The fun part is that the bottom two tiers are actually boxes that can hold gifts!  I think I am going to have to get some chocolate to hide in these layers to make a stash just for me ;)
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Confetti Stack Birthday Cards

Hello crafty friends!  Today I am back with a collection of birthday cards that I created using DCWV's Confetti stack...yes, more cards from that stack because I LOVE it so much...and some Doodlebug Designs tokens (Birthday Girl Assortment).  Thank you, Tanya for those tokens!
On most of the cards, I used the stitched rectangle and scalloped stitched rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs.  The card below uses a sentiment from the APB Smile stamp set.
I also used homemade enamel dots as accents.
The first three of these cards had accents of Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine.
The bow on this last one is of Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Sprinkled With Love Cards

Hello crafty friends!  Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  This month we are featuring Totally Pink Trendy Twine.  
I really loved working with all the colors on these papers from DCWV's Confetti stack.  It had the perfect shade of pink to coordinate with the Trendy Twine!
This bottom part is where most of the details are.  The border and bow of Totally Pink Trendy Twine, a small doily and square die cut, a Doodlebug Designs cupcake brad (a gift from my crafty friend, Tanya- Thank you!)  and some coordinating sequins.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Singer Sewing Machine Card

Happy Wednesday!  Today I am back with another card that uses stamps from Victorine Originals.
Believe me when I say, the Sewing Set stamps called out to me!  How could I resist that antique Singer sewing machine?  One summer when our family's sewing machine was not working, I used my Grandma's treadle sewing machine to make a dress,  Oh the memories!  
All of the papers I used are from DCWV's Minty Lace stack.  I thought they coordinated with the stamp perfectly!  I also used stitched rectangle dies from Gina Marie Designs and the stamped panel was die cut with a Cottage Cutz Stitched Square die.  I used a doily (from a retired My Craft Spot die), crinkle seam binding, corsage pins, buttons, artist safety pin and charm for embellishments.
Here is a look at the Sewing Set stamps.  Look at all the stamps that you get on that 6"x7.5" set!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
