Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Piece of Cake

March 24, 2019 16 Comments

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. And I must say, I love my job! I had so much fun creating samples for today’s Stamping Sunday Blog Hop! I might have gotten carried away, in a good way. We’re featuring a trio of products: Floral Romance, Piece of Cake and Beautifully Detailed Laser Cut Paper. You’re going to love the inspiration the design team have for you!!

  • avid stamping: more time, techniques, tools, whatever it is, I want to do it!

Then stamp a background pattern of “happy birthday” in Calypso Coral.

Stamp the cake and pedestal from Piece of Cake in Calypso Coral

on Whisper White.

Then cut out the image with your 2-1/4″ Circle Punch
