The retro vibe of the Sweet Cake stamp set immediately caught my attention in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog. It was a simple element to employ on this week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA127) by Margaret Moody. Get inspired by the sketch and play along this week. All brands of products are welcome and we now offer a week for you to play!
ABOUT THE MUSIC: I have had oodles of emails and comments from you asking about the music I play during my videos. Honestly, it’s just a 25 second snippet of Spanish guitar that I purchased on-line so that I wouldn’t infringe on any copyrights. Glad you enjoy it!
- Large solid stamp images can sometimes need a little “nip tuck.” I used a Blender Pen and touch of Basic Black Ink to fill in a few areas that needed a bit more coverage. Watch my Blender Pen Ink Fix Tutorial.
- And the “cherry” on the top? I used a Red Sharpie Marker to turn one of the new Large Pearl Basic Jewels from white to red in seconds. Works for Rhinestones Basic Jewels, too. Want to see it in action? Click here for my Coloring Rhinestones demonstrator video tutorial.
- I embossed mini hearts onto a piece of Poppy Parade card stock using the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (Occasions Mini Catalog). It’s a splashy detail for the envelope flap.
