Cake Mashup

I've been wanting to take part in the Friday Mashup for a while, but have been so busy I've missed it. So this time I was going to take part straight away. As Amy my Gemstones Team Leader is the host for the DT and it is her last one I thought it was right to take part. So the Friday Mashup's challenge this week had the following inspiration: 

So every week the Friday Mashup blog will give the inspiration as per above to create a project, but there is a twist you can mash it up with another inspiration. If the inspiration above isn't your cup of tea then you can use the other inspiration as per the outline below:

  1. Create a project with the colours "Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate & Basic Grey."
  2. Create a project with a "Cake."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project "with a Cake using the colours above."
So I decide to mash it up and use the colours as well as the cake on the following card: 


I need a birthday card for someone so I used the Envelope Punch Board which is available at the end of the week here in the UK! I just couldn't help myself as I had just got my hand on it. 

I used basic grey as my card base and used the Eastern Elegance DSP for my background I then used markers to colour the cake in the colours. I then used the labels framelits die to cut it out and then layered it onto Coastal Cabana which I cut in the next size up. I also ran the framelit that I had cut the cake out on the Coastal Cabana card putting through the Big Shot the other way so it would emboss the cardstock. I then layered it onto Basic Grey and used the Envelope Punch Board to round the corners and added some Coastal Cabana Ruffled Ribbon which I have only just got my hands on. I then used dimensionals to adhere to the rest of the card and then I stamped my sentiment in Smoky Slate and coloured the inside with the Coastal Cabana marker, I cut it out with the itty banner framelits. I shaped it like a banner and adhered one end with tombow and the other with dimensionals to keep the banner shape. I really love how the card came out :).

Here is a couple of close up's of the stamped cake and the file edge created by the Envelope Punch Board:

Go For Greece Blog Hop - March 2018

Evening all,
Hope you are well.
I'm popping by on a blog hop with the amazing 'Go For Greece' training group. Since October I've been part of an awesome training programme to gain knowledge & in site in how to achieve the incentive trip that Stampin' Up! has to offer.

Kylie Bertucci gives some amazing training to demonstrators world wide! I've been part of some other groups that has been started by her like 'Random Acts of Kindness' where cards go to random people within the group from all over the world.

I hope you enjoy this scrapbook page that is from our holiday to the Lake District almost 2 years ago! It was a glorious day after finding out that Brexit had happened here in the UK.
