More Spice Cake

I really do love the colours of the Spice Cake papers and fabric and I know I will be stocking up on them while they are available in the mini catalogue.

When I started cutting up those "precious" papers I had so many ideas for them that I made many different cards. So grab a cuppa before you sit down, its a long one!!

This card is Soft Suede, Pool Party and Very Vanilla.  I made the medallion with some Spice Cake paper and a Vintage Brad for the centre, I used Tombow glue to fix it to the Very Vanilla and layered it on to another piece of Spice Cake paper. The sentiment is from the Little Princess stamp set, using the same Pool Party for the layers.

This card is inspired by the colours of the Spice Cake papers. I stamped a background piece with several of the stamps from the French Foliage stamp set, then stamped some extra leaves to cut out, layering over the stamped piece as a focal point.

The base card is Pool Party with leaves stamped in Pool Party ink.

A close up of the detail and the lovely bow made with Soft Suede Taffeta ribbon and a Vintage brad.

This card is a perfect way to use scraps of paper, card and ribbon.

The card base is More Mustard, a colour I wouldn't usually use but maybe you might just see it again soon!
The squares are decorated with different punches - love the Owl punch!! The Very Vanilla layer is embossed and a narrow scalloped edge was made with the lovely Ribbon Boarder punch.

I used the Spiced Paisley stamp set for this card, stamping all the layers with the matching inks to create a shadow effect.

I used the Stampin' Up! markers to colour the stamps and then cut them out, using dimensionals to fix them to the stamped panel.  The border was made with the Scallop Trim punch and I tied some Pear Pizzaz ribbon around this layer.

That's all for now, I will show you the rest of the cards tomorrow from this set.

Great selection of cards Angela. Love the colours. I have to admit I wouldn't use mustard either but it works really well on the third card.

Wow! You have been busy with this paper!! Spice Cake is one of my favorite DSPs and I'm fighting the urge to hoard what I have left!
All of your cards are beautiful, especially the medallion, and who doesn't love a card that uses up scraps like your square punch card!!
