TECC22 Let Them Eat Cake!

June 27th, 2008

Happy Friday!  It’s time for another Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge (cupcakes NOT required)!  When I saw the sketch for this week I immediately knew I had the perfect brand new as-yet-uninked image –Rubber Romance Diva Chef.



When Taylor sent the sketch she mentioned the idea of an awning, so I immediately thought of the window of a bakery.  I went looking through my designer paper and found this red and vanilla stripe in a pack of retired SU Cerise paper – it seemed perfect for an awning.  I punched the scalloped border with a corner rounder and then scored a line and pierced just below that.  When I adhered the awning to the card I used some foam tape just below the score line for some dimension.  The awning was finished off with some Kaiser Craft pearls and a quick red doodle faux stitch.

The chef was stamped on Paper Trey white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I liked the contrast of the stark white against the vanilla of the awning.  The cake was highlighted with Stickles.  The sentiment is from SU Curvy Verses.  I stamped several sentiments on a transparancy so I could *try them on* the card before I decided which I liked best and wanted to use.  Across the bottom I adhered a piece of red grosgrain ribbon and the tied a piece of ivory taffeta.  The round element is a sentiment from Riveting embellished with the tiny cupcake from Short & Sweet – which is covered with a thick layer of Crystal Effects.  The red circle is layered on a black scallop punched with a Marvy punch.

This was such a FUN card to work on!  I hope you’ll play the sketch challenge this week too!  To view the sketch and read all the details to play and maybe even win a prize or become the featured stamper, check out Taylor’s blog.  This week’s featured Cupcake Stamper is my good friend Sharon Harnist at Paperfections.

    Hi Jami,
    I have been toying with the idea of starting a food blog and was looking for some internet awning art to use. Would I be able to use the above image you created. If so, how would I go about it? I would love to be able to use it…it is simply perfect!
    Thank you so much!
