B happy

Okay, so I thought I was done creating cards for the Gossip Column, but when I realised that today was also the last day to enter the Winnie & Walter's Rerun challenge, which is focusing on the Sugar Rush stamp set, I knew I had to create one more card today.  I bought this stamp set earlier this year, but had not had a chance to use it yet.

One of the inspiration photos in Taheerah's post had this fun fruity cake, and I thought I would try to create my own version using the Sugar Rush set. I stamped the cake and the donuts-turned-pineapple-slices onto a piece of scrap cardstock, coloured the images using Copics and fussy cut them out. I then stamped the cake stand in dark grey ink onto a smooshed panel from my box of previously created backgrounds, die cut the panel using the large die from the Noelle Cutaways set, adhered my cake using liquid glue and my pineapples using liquid glue and small foam squares. After I had added my panel to my soft pink cardbase, I decided I wanted to heat emboss my sentiment on top of the cake. I masked off the 'OY' from the 'BOY' sentiment before stamping with Versamark and then stamped the 'HAPPY' next to it before heat embossing using Liquid Platinum ep.

This sweet little card does make me happy. How about you?
