Rainbow Cake with Gemma

Today I have a Rainbow Cake card to share, created using embossed cardstock strips.

I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Strip dies to create my cake. I find these help me to get equal width card strips and thinner strips are easy with these dies. You could use a paper trimmer to cut strips, if you prefer.

I chose 6 bright embossing powders/glitters for my cake:
  • Razzleberry & Orangeade (from the Summer Scoops trio)
  • Picnic Basket
  • Jealous Guy, mixed with the Glisten Changer (3:1 ratio)
  • Calypso
  • Sugared Almond

I inked each strip with the WOW clear embossing ink, then covered with an embossing glitter and heat set.

Next, I cut a piece of thin paper to build my rainbow cake upon. I adhered a thin strip of pearlescent white card to the left edge, then adhered the embossed strips, separating each layer with another thin pearlescent white card strip.

To get the look of decorative icing on the top of the cake, I used a scallop border from the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 4 die set to cut some of the pearlescent white card.

I adhered the embossed cake to a slimline card base, added a pearlescent navy strip for a candle. To create a candle flame, I found the perfect leaf coordinating die from the Pretty Pink Posh Bear Friends set. I die cut it from white card and embossed with Metalline Flame embossing powder.

To finish, I added a stamped sentiment and a rainbow of Pretty Pink Posh jewels.

Have a lovely day,

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme. I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time. I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them. I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid! Here are brief instructions on how to make it: STEP ONE Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles a
