More cards I didn't post

Yes, I have a few more cards I didn't post. And I absolutely meant to do so but what can I say - I got busy. I definitely wanted to post these cos I had such a good time making them. I'd gotten the Stylish Sentiments: Birthday stamp set and saw that little diagonally striped stamp - it's maybe 1/2 inch by 1 inch. I wondered what I could do with it. And I started playing around. With one color then two colors and well here's what I came up with. I really like the way this one came out. I used Aqua Mist and Spring Moss inks and Hawaiian Shores Cardstock - the sentiment (from the same set) is stamped in Fresh Snow ink and I used white embossing powder. In case you're wondering I stamped in one ink in one direction then stamped over that with another ink in another direction and it created this cool pattern.

Then I made a thank you card using the same stamp, inks and technique - different sentiment (Think Big Favorites #3). Obviously I didn't mix the two colors just overlapped the stamping.
Pretty cool what you can make with one little stamp huh?

Oh yeah. Here's that cake I was working on. I had a few issues with the chalice at the last minute. It cracked. And there was actually leaves and grapes and wheat. But no matter. There was a time when I would have absolutely freaked out with things going wrong at the 11th hour. But I didn't. I just got rid of everything but the chalice and host, added the lacey looking frosting and voila. Cake done. And everyone, including the little Communicant, loved it. It tasted great too.

Oh and one more thing. I made cookies. I felt bad that we weren't able to attend the Confirmation for the other nephew last week (the brother of the Communicant). So I made doves - or in this case - Holy Spirit cookies :-)

Alrighty thats enough for the day. Off to make dinner. Have a good one!
