There is more really BIG news, but you will have to scroll to the bottom to read it.

Today is a REALLY BIG day.  As I said yesterday this is my 39th Birthday AGAIN (hehe) however I have 2 birthday twins over at SCS so this is for them.


Happy Birthday Shannan and Jeannen2….I hope your day is as great as mine is turning out to be…lovely!   This one’s for YOU!

 The card uses all Flourishes,llc stamps….Cake Decorating 101 (what a fun set) and the new Many Sentiments ( I LUV it).

Card base is Certainly Celery, DP is Basic Grey Two Scoops.  I stamped the cake outline in Hybrid Palette Noir then made a mask, cut it our and placed it over the cake.  Then I choose the cake plate and stand, placed them together on the acrylic block, inked them up and stamped them where I wanted them.  I removed the mask and colored the entire image with my Copics (gotta love them).  Then I decorated the cake with the smaller stamps from the set, using the direct to image method and huffing it…it did take a little practice as the Copic ink dries quick, but lots of inking and a close huff worked just fine.  Detail coloring was done with my white pen.  Two sizes of the same green ribbon was perfect…added a prima flower and some bling….sure hope that you like it.

NOW Breaking News from the Office of the Queen!!!!!

 The proclamation reads….

Be it known that from this day forward to all Flourishes’s customers in Stampingdom SHIPPING  is  FREE for ALL orders over $45.00 USD.  That includes international as well!  She Said that, She Did!

The Queen said let them eat cake and have free shipping (just follow the rules of the $45.00 min)

 Whew…now out for a celebratory lunch with the King of My Heart (Manual Labour)
