let's make a cake (pp95-color challenge)

What beautiful weather we are having this weekend...such a great Mother's Day gift!

This week's theme at The Paper Players is a color challenge and Ann has created a bright and cheery combination for all of us to play with!
It took me a little bit to get started, especially because I couldn't decide which NEW "sneak peek" stamp set to play with! I ended up choosing a set that will be in the up and coming new catalog called Make a Cake. I earned this set for FREE (along with some paper and ribbon) for recruiting a new demonstrator during Sale-A-Bration. Just another fun perk of being a demonstrator...I love it! I also used a new stamp set called Itty Bitty Banners and used the new Bitty Banners Framelits to cut it out perfectly! You're going to love this new catalog!
I kept with my go to style of keeping things clean and simple. The Make a Cake stamp set has separate pieces that I stamped on top of each other to make one complete cake (hence the name: Make a Cake). I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get everything perfectly placed. What would I do without that great tool?! I wanted to add a little sparkle to my cake, so I added Dazzling Diamonds on the top of each layer of cake (stands out much more in person!). I pierced each of the two corners on the right to give it a little something extra and of course added some jewel accents to add some more dazzling factor.
Stamp Set: Make a Cake (coming soon in the NEW 2012-2013 catalog), Itty Bitty Banners (coming soon in the NEW 2012-2013 catalog) 
Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, Just Add Cake (retiring May 31)  
Ink: markers - Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze 
Accessories: Jewel Accents, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter 
Tools: Scallop Dotted Ribbon Border punch, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Bitty Banners Framelits (coming soon in the NEW 2012-2013 catalog), Two-Step Owl punch (heart)

I hope you can come join us at The Paper Players this week and while you are there, be sure to check out the inspiration from the design team! Link up your card before Friday, May 18th at NOON.
