Inside the card, I stamped the large sentiment, two small flowers, and used the "steam" as swirls on either side.
Antique Label (in Neenah Smooth), sponged the edges, and stamped the teapot on patterned paper. I love the fun pattern paired with the Kraft. The band just slides off, and the card opens up. My husband is fascinated, lol!
Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!

"Dawn L's" on the team?!! Funny!
I'm sharing this Color Block A2 Mat card, Bazzill Blue Jean Criss Cross cardstock, from Creative Cuts and More ... the work is done for you, all you have to do is create!! How cool is that!
I lightly traced the blocks with pencil, then put some sticky notes down to mask the blocks before stamping.
I used 2 stamp sets and a total of 6 stamps for this card! I have a tutorial on my blog how to do clouds.
Also, see how to do different colors on a silhouette stamp on my blog.
Killer White Tear-able Tape makes it so easy to adhere the mat to the base!

I had made some of these cute Peek-A-View Box containers to share with my mother and her room-mate at the assisted living home and forgot to post them sooner.
My mom likes pink like I do, her room mate really loves blue so those were perfect just for them.
The cupcake small on the front is a die cut in the store I decorated with liquid applique in pink and heat embossed. The colors added were done with H20's

Hi Everyone, Dawn ll here today.
I have to say I think this turned out so Well -hope you like.
Creative Cuts and More has the most spectacular die cuts and the Cake Slice Box Set- Two Tier is one of my favorite to use.
I love the dies from Terry because they are perfectly cut and always the highest quality. I get to choose from hundreds of paper colors and weights or materials.
I see patterns on-line that can be cut out by myself but so not worth a poor quality product for something I want to last and look spectacular.
This Cake Slice Box Set- Two Tier cake (die cuts)was actually made for Terry in opalescent white metallic and I used Amethyst accessories.
Here is the basic supplies I started with to create this wonderful cake.
The Dress & Tuxedo set come as a separate set and the suit, dress, shirt and tie can be made in any color choice you would like.
Each of these pieces can also be purchased separately.
I used Tulle that was dotted to accent the dress- sort of a thin liner so the pearl shine on the dress shows through.
Decorating the Two Tier Cake is the best part of this process. I started with the teardrop pearl and braided trim around the middle of each layer.
The bride and groom were added to the middle of the top of the cake at a slight angle to make room for decorations.
I was lucky to find these beautiful open flowers in a Amethyst shade to match the grooms shirt and tie.
I even added a small flower to the lapel and around the waist of the bridal dress
