Some Spice Cake

It's Monday night and I'm exhusted after a busy LONG weekend.  Long because of the public holiday on Thursday, not because it dragged!  I got myself some of my unfinished projects and sat down for some crafting time!  I finished two scrap layouts (although I'll share those when I've put the photos on .... I'm waiting for delivery on the photos!!), I made a card, a loopy flower and even got some sewing and crochet in.    That's on top of a spontaneous crafting time on Friday night with friends and craft shopping on Sunday.  Yep, that's a fair bit to make up for my obvious withdrawals.

So one of the cards I made is the lovely Happy Birthday card using Spice Cake products from the Summer Mini catalogue.  Designed by my friend & fellow demonstrator, Tania - it combines a colour combination I wouldn't normally use with some classic elegance.

This card is a little bit different from the original design of Tania which you can see for yourself over at Inky Dayz.  I've flipped the colours around and used different stamps (mainly because (shock  horror), I didn't have the ones Tania used!!

This is the same card!!  I've been fiddling with the Instagram camera feature on my phone which gives lovely vintage effects, highlights or takes out colour.  I'm trying to overhaul my whole style of showing these photos, so I'm experimenting in the mean time!  The first photo is more true to the colours then the vintage brighter card.

So if you're wondering, I used the following Stampin' Up! supplies:

Stamps: Posy Punch, Curly Cute & Polka Dot Punches
Inks: Pool Party & Soft Suede
Papers: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, More Mustard & Spice Cake DSP
Other: 5- Petal Flower Punch, 1.3 cm Circle Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Tafetta Ribbon, Basic Jewels Pearls Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots


  1. Love love love! Your fancy flower is super cute. I wish I had that polka dot punches stamp. Take care Tania

  2. Aawww, your so lovely Tania - it was your original idea that I had to adapt!!
