Tea in the Garden ~ Power Poppy


Woo-Hoo!!  Power Poppy's Release Day has finally arrived!!  You can now purchase any of these fabulous new sets!!  How exciting!  I know I adore them!  Gorgeous images, and the most perfect sentiments!  For my final card today, I used the MFTWSC180 sketch with the beautiful cake from the new Power Poppy set called Tea in the Garden.    The sentiment is from the Power Poppy set called
Party Time.  

I thought it would be fun to make the frosting look like a chocolate ganache, so I colored it with some darker brown tones and added some Glossy Accents to it to make it shine.  I also added Glossy Accents to the cake stand.

I did a little something different with the sentiment too.  Have you ever embossed with white on black cardstock and found that you are having a hard time getting every little white fleck of the embossing powder off?  (And yes, I do use an anti-static pad before embossing.)  Well, I thought I'd try using my Minc machine with Opaque white foil, and it did absolutely beautifully!!!  No stray flecks!!  All you have to do is stamp your sentiment on copy paper, run it through a copier with toner, add your white foil and run it through the machine.  Perfection, I tell ya!!  

Here's a close up so you can see the shine better, as well as the beautifully "Minc'd" sentiment.

ok, can I just come and lick the icing off the screen? That looks awesome! I was just wondering how you did the sentiment...so cool about the minc-ing!

The more sample cards i see of the cake the more I like the cake stamp. Love the idea of the Minc'd sentiment. Will have to try it!
