Birthday Cake


Hi readers! Happy Monday to you! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Today I’m pleased to bring you two gorgeous cards made by the one and only Kathy Racoosin showing you a variety of tips, tricks, & techniques using some fun Simon Says Stamp exclusive products.



To create a beautiful and texture background use the scalloped circle from the Cake & Congrats die cut set and die cut enough to cover  your background. Use an embossing folder to give the circles lots of texture. Glue onto white cardstock and trim off an access circles.
Die cut several cakes. trim and stack to your liking. add  color with copic markers, stamp flowers, color and add enamel accents to the flower centers. color only the brown cake (not the flowers) with wink of stella. Add glossy accents to the cake plate.


Die cut a few sentiments, color with a brown marker and add wink of stella.


Cut off the letters of the birthday sentiment that you want to use. in my case “B. day” glue the letters on a strip of vellum and pink cardstock and place on your card base.


Using my leftover cake I created a quick masculine cake card. I colored the scallop part of the cake plate to make it more masculine and trimmed part of the stand on the cake plate. Stamp a background with smoke & green apple ink.
Have some fun and draw some dripping chocolate frosting on the cake layers. Color , add glossy accents to the flames and glue candles on to the cake. cut some banners and stamp the sentiments.


Thanks for reading and thanks to Kathy for being our guest!
