Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 168 - Delicious

This is my entry for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week where the theme is Delicious.  I chose the Penny Black stamp Cheesecake Party for this one and coloured it with Promarkers.  Having had a look at the DT samples and the other entries for this challenge quite a few of us must have had a soft spot for this stamp and have it in our collection.  The colour scheme for this project was taken from the backing papers which is from Dovecraft's Tea House collection.  The Papeterie had this collection on their reduced table when I was there recently and I couldn't resist buying the paper pack and some decorative brads.  The sentiment is another Penny Black stamp from the clear set Eat Cake.

The cupcake embellishments were make using a Quickutz die and were cut from colours of card to match the cupcakes on the backing paper.  They were attached to the card with foam pads to add some dimension.  The icing on the coloured image and the die cuts was glittered with Stampin' up Dazzling Diamonds glitter as were the candy buttons and detail on the napkins.

Top Tip Tuesday - The candy buttons were made using a half inch circle punch.  Circles were punched from co-ordinating card, shaped on a foam mat using the Glitter Girls' embossing tool and then glittered and attached to the card using foam pads.

 This is the inside of the easel card.  The greeting panel is still blank as I'm not sure who this card is going to be for yet.  Once I've decided I'll print out a personalised greeting message and then die cut it with one of the plain oval nestabilities so it will sit on top of the green layers already there.   I've made so many square cards recently it was a nice change to go back to an A5 sized one.

  17. Hi Liz, I love your sweet mouse and cupcake card. It is so delightful to look at and the inside is just a super as the outside (I am also a believer in finishing the inside) We must be kindred spirits because I chose the same background and I love it.
