Let’s Decorate the Cake

Hello my card making friends.  Let’s decorate the Cake today!  a Beautiful Lemon Chiffon Cake on a Milk Glass Stand with absolutely NO CALORIES – YEAH!  And a super easy Copic Coloring technique to boot.  Read on and don’t forget to download the FREE PDF File for today’s card too.

The start of a New Year and I’M OUT OF BIRTHDAY CARDS, how does that happen?   haha, it’s time to restock.  I purchased this Let’s Decorate Stamp and Die set from Picket Fence Studios back in January and have been itching to give it a go – SO fun to color.

Instructions for the “Let’s Decorate the Cake” card:

(the downloadable PDF has a supply list, cutting  measurements and detailed instructions for the completion of this card).

  • This is a super fast and easy card to make with just a small colored focal point providing the big WOW.
  • I started by cutting a circle into a scrap of card stock to create a stencil.
  • Next, I used a Life Changing Brush to add Peacock Feather Distress Oxide Ink to the card front.
  • I used my Misti Stamping Tool to stamp all the cake and flower images into a piece of Neenah Solar White and colored them with my copics (numbers in the PDF below).
  • I die cut out the images and added bits of foam tape to the back.
  • Before I attached all the pieces, I put the card base back into my Misti so I could line up the sentiment (I used to always stamp them crooked, haha), and stamped the flower outlines at the bottom.
  • Then I added all my art pieces.  BAM – DONE, quick easy and beautiful…..what color (or flavor) will your cake be?

Here’s my Copic Shading trick for today.

Color the image with the three yellow markers and blend really well.  Once dry, use the medium and dark colors and add dots around the outside of the cake to create the shadow and texture on the cake.  Super easy and also looks great on animals.

This little doggy is from my last post.  I colored him with the three colors and after blending went back with the medium and dark brown to add dots.
