Birthday cake



Happy Sunday!!  Today I have two posts for you, the first one is for our Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  This week's theme is "Hide and Seek".  We want you to create a card or project where the sentiment/words are hidden at first glance.  I decided I would make a cake...a paper one, of course, and make it a fun one by creating little surprises to find.  (I'll post a tutorial on how to make the cake soon.)  Here is my hide and seek project for your viewing pleasure....


I have used three different Magnolia stamps, Bon Voyage Tilda is on the top of the cake, Spring Tilda is on the right.  They are stamped on Neenah Super Smooth paper and stamp with Memento Black Ink.  I used copic sketch markers and Distress Inks.  A list of the ones I used is at the bottom of this post.   I embellished the flowers with Diamond Stickles.


I'm not sure where the designer papers came from, they did not have any markings on them.  Flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I absolutely LOVE these flowers.  The best thing about them is when I add stickles to them, they do not bleed.  I got that awesome green vine from our local scrapbook store, Simple Pleasures Stamps
Here is a view of the "hide and seek" sentiment from on top of the cake.
Here is the cake opened up to reveal all the hidden treasures.  I attached the gift card to the back of the sentiment with removable double-sided tape.  It also makes it nice and sturdy for the topper.

Copics:  G82, BG93, Y21, R29, R39, R11, E00, E01, E21, E50, E53, E33, E41, E43, E44, E35
Distress Inks: Vintage Linen and Walnut Stain
