Anyway, hooray for Friday, specifically when Jon gets home from work :-) At least it's time for a new Fab Friday challenge! We have a sketch for you this time.
I used celebration thinlits and the sunshine sayings stamp set and a whole bunch of embellishments! I browse a lot on Instagram and Pinterest and have been seeing a lot of inspiration there in the form of cakes so I wanted to do a sort of ombre layer cake here. It didn't all turn out exactly as I pictured but it's ok. I don't care for the way my ribbon ended up but what can you do after you stick it all down? ;-)
I added a "cascade" of flowers with the in color glitter acrylic shapes...and true confession time. I sort of forgot about these and forgot that I had them! WHAT is wrong with me, they are so fun! I also added a variety of sequins from both packs that we have. Some sliver metallic thread and a bitty bow finish off my cake. I WISH I could decorate cakes this well in real life but I better stick to paper!
I embossed my sentiment with white and if you visit here often, you've seen that a lot lately. I'm kind of stuck on it and I'm ok with that ;-) I added a gold cake stand as well. I like mixing my metallics!
Edited to add: I've had some questions on how I adhered everything, I really should get better at the details :-) I used glue dots for the flowers and for the largest sequins. I used the fine tip glue pen for the two smaller sequins.
I hope you liked my cake and I hope you'll check out the Fab Friday site and play along with us!
Happy stamping! Product List
