Building a Shaker Card with the Topsy Cakes Stamp Set!

How fun is this new set from BRUTUS MONROE? The TOPSY CAKES stamp set is full of cake images and fun sentiments that makes it perfect for birthday or special occasion cards. I always need more birthday cards, so I created two with this set. One is pretty and feminine, the other a bit more masculine.

I also made a quick video on how I created the circle shaker window for my first card! Take a look!

As you saw in the video, I started out by creating my shaker window, and then I layered my colored pieces on the front. I colored all the images here with my STYLEFILE MARKERS. I also grabbed a few scraps of cardstock from my  stash and adhered those down to my card base.

So my first card is so fun with that shaker window! Most of the work went into the shaker parts and the coloring of the images. The rest of the embellishments took no time at all!

This next card I created with more of a masculine feel in mind. I colored another cake from the set, again with my STYLEFILE MARKERS. I used very dark toned colors and added a pop of red to the frosting.

I created the background for my cake by using the ABSTRACT ART stamp set, and embossing some images using both RAVEN EMBOSSING POWDER and PENNY EMBOSSING POWDER.

I also layered a strip of RINEA PENNY FOIL PAPER on the side so that I could get a bit more of that gorgeous copper on the card! I finished this one off with a few gold sequins!

I love it when you can get multiple uses out of stamp sets! This one is great for birthdays and other occasions, and you can totally change it up to make it feminine or masculine!
