Pink Champagne & CAKE!

Hi Stampers!

Today is a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments Designs called BLING IT ON! This week we want you to break out your bling and use it on a project!

This week I decided to try making a cute box that is decorated in the shape of a cake using flower soft and paint. I had seen this cute box designed by Mindy Baxter a long time ago and it has always been on my "to try" list and I thought this week's challenge was perfect for it!

Here is my version...

I decided to make my cake using Blue and Cream colors with a little silver mixed in. I used the adorable Cheers stamp from Crafty Sentiments Designs and colored her with my copics. My copic markers bleed through my paper in spots so I placed her on black cardstock and cut out the image leaving a border.

My cake was created using the 3"x3" notecard box tutorial on splitcoaststampers and then I used inspiration from Mindy's cake to decorate. I used FolkArt Metallic Acrylic paint in Blue Pearl, which I will be adding this to our store soon. This is a pretty paint with a silver shimmer. It didn't stay raised like I hoped like Mindy's paint, but it still looks really pretty.

I covered the bottom using Delphinium Blue Flower Soft Sprinkles and created my own flowers using the My Favorite Things Large Rolled Rose Die-Namics to create the cream roses. To created the Rolled Blue flowers I just punched a 1 3/4" circle and cut it in a spiral and rolled it using my Hybrid petal Roller Tool.

Here is a look at the top...

My sentiment tags are from LOTV that I stamped in Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain and my large center flower I created using the My Favorite Things Loopy Bloom Die-Namics. This flower I made using a cream colored felt. This is one of my FAVORITE Dies! LOVE IT! My bling flourishes on top are from prima.

Here is a close up of my beautiful Cheers image from Crafty Sentiments Designs...

I think this is a super cute box that you can put a little gift in for someones birthday! I hope you play along with us this week and get your bling on!
