Bellariffic Friday... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Hi again!  Welcome back for Bellariffic Friday... this week with a Birthday Theme....

I knew right away I was going to use Amariah Rauscher's Ramona Loves Cake.  Birthdays just don't get any cuter!!  And it also comes with the "Happy Birthday" sentiment.  I told you... I'm slowly working my way into owning all of these little cuties.

I paper-pieced the cake and added a little shading with my Copics.  The icing has been "decorated" with glitter and liquid pearls... and since my latest thing seems to be adding Glossy Accents to everything... I put a little on the strawberries.  Nothing you'd find on the Food Network... but I'm happy with the outcome none the less.  lol

I stamped the image again on the inside lightly with SU More Mustard & used the MFT squiggle die on the inside again because it reminds me of yummy icing:

Here's what I used:


Stamping Bella: Ramona Loves Cake (comes with sentiment)

Bella's Bestest paper, Early Espresso, So Saffron, MME "So Sofie" & "Miss Caroline"

MFT... ribbon & squiggle dies
SB... circle
& SU punch (for sentiment)

YR20, 21, 23, 24
R20, 21, 22, 24
YG11, 25, 63

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, shading at edge done with Ranger Distress Ink (antique linen)

sewing machine, swiss dot embossing folder, glossy accents, red velvet ribbon, sheer ribbon, glitter

Enjoy your Friday everyone!  Hopefully see you over at Stamping Bella to check out all the other Birthday Cards.  Don't forget to leave a comment while you're there for a chance at $10 in Bella Bucks!!   'Till next time, Carla.

Gorgeous & Yummy - do they go together? Carla, love how you put this all together, from the paper piecing, colouring, glitter, liquid pearls, glossy accents on those strawberries, they look good enough to eat! and then once again all your details using dies - a fantastic birthday card!

Carla you are killing me with the sweetness of all your cards. And the inside is always so perfectly decorated too

This is gorgeous and delicious at the same time :) That cake and those strawberries put the Food Network to shame!! So, so pretty and love the inside too - although I'm afraid to sew on my insides just yet :) BTW, love all your layouts too!!

Susan said...

That paper pieced cake frosting looks downright enticing. Is it honey flavored?
