A Simple Corner Cut Out Card featuring the Stampin' Up! Piece of Cake Stamp Set

Hello and thanks so much for stopping by to hang out with me for a bit. It's surely been a crazy weekend for sure. Well to start, I seem to have an electrical problem in my craft room, so needless to say, it's been interesting. You see, my craft room is in my upstairs and to say it's pretty warm up there with these near 90 degree temps, it a true understatement. So, needless to say, getting any crafting done is near impossible. Lucky for me, I did a little creating prior to my electrical problem rearing it's ugly face. My dad, who happens to be an electrician is going to attempt to fix it today....so fingers crossed!

Ok, on to today's card! Today I have a simple corner cut out card featuring the adorable Piece of Cake stamp set by Stampin' Up! This set first debuted in our 2019 Occasions catalog and carried over into our new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, and oh how happy that made me. It's been quite popular since it made it's debut, as a matter of fact, it spent the first several weeks un-orderable due to the significant number of backorders for it! So, today, I wanted to feature it here with this fun corner cut out.
a simple corner cut out card featuring piece of cake by stampin' up!

To recreate this card, you will need a thick Whisper White card base cut 4 1/4" x 11" scored and folded at 5 1/2", a piece of DSP or Designer Series Paper (I used DSP from the Brights Collection pack) that measures 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and a second, coordinating piece of DSP die cut using the largest rectangle in the Stitched Rectangles Die collection. From the bottom right corner of the stitched rectangle DSP, you will use the second largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Die Collection to die cut and remove the corner. Adhere this panel to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
Stamp the cake onto a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock and color with the Light Night of Navy Stampin' Blend marker and the Dark Flirty Flamingo and punched it out using the coordinating Cake Builder punch. I punched out the cake stand in Gold Foil paper and adhered this to the die cut corner with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and added the cake with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then stamped the candle image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White and colored them in with the light Flirty Flamingo Blends Marker and the flames I colored with the light Pumpkin Pie marker. I fussy cut them out and popped them up with a Stampin' Dimensional. 
To complete the card, I added the sentiment onto a 1/2" piece of Whisper White and bannered one end and added it across the cake with a little Snail adhesive. I then wrapped a triple strand of Whisper White Bakers Twine around and tied into a bow. It added just the right amount of pizzazz to the card to finish it off. 

I hope you enjoyed today's card and it has inspired you to attempt a corner cut out layout for yourself and be sure to stop by tomorrow for another project featuring the Piece of Cake stamp set.
Happy Stamping,

Crafty Deals You won't want to Miss!

crafty deals you won't want to miss

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I had to jump on to let you in on a few crafty deals you won't want to miss!

Crafty Deal #1

First Crafty Deal is of course from Stampin' Up! We are in the final weeks of Bonus Day's where you can earn a $5 coupon code for every $50 you spend in  product before shipping and tax to use toward your purchases in August! And lets face it, it's not difficult to spend $50, so why not save a little next month too? Just use this link here to shop with me and begin collecting your coupon codes for next month: http://bit.ly/shopwithKatrina

Crafty Deal #2

The second crafty deal also comes from Stampin' Up! It's the Extra Extra deal and that is the BEST deal! That is a 20% coupon to use as long as you like! All you have to do to take advantage of that great deal is purchase a starter kit and join my team! You see, for July and August, you can choose $155 in product of your choice (that's $30 over the usual $125 in product) for $99 and FREE shipping, then the following month Stampin' Up! will send you a $10 coupon code to use toward your next purchase! So, that's an additional $40 in free product over 2 months in addition to an ongoing 20% discount with the potential of increasing to 25%!

Crafty Deal #3

The third and final crafty deal I have for you comes from my friends at Stamp n Storage. They are currently running a sale on their magnetic die sheets. These magnet sheets are the BOMB! I use them to store my dies and they are so much stronger and sturdier than other "cheaper" magnet sheets on the market. These actually HOLD my dies in place! Now, let me be perfectly clear, I am an affiliate, so if you choose to shop via my link, I do get a very small commission for your purchase (thank you), however, it doesn't cost you any extra!
