Colorful Treats, Another Helping

Still crafting away here with the July Papertrey Ink Countdown. Got another card using my new Colorful Treats stamps/dies and the Awning Cover Plate today.  This time, I'm using the layered cake image, which is something that hasn't been used before.

This piece of cake on a plate has six layers, one to color with every shade of the rainbow if you so choose. Or not. Up to you. Here I made it a chocolate cake with blue icing to match the colors on the sentiment. The sentiment is a coloring sheet from the Fancy Pants Sentiments Coloring Sheets. Big and bold in a way that we can't do in stamps for a lower price point, but can certainly do on paper. Which is a fun option. I framed it all off with the new Awning Cover Plate, turned on it's side and using the detailed scallop dies that are included as an extra. Very pretty.

I mentioned yesterday that each sweets image has a corresponding solid stamp that highlights an area with clear embossing powder on the detailed image. For the cake, the plate can be shiny with clear embossing powder if you so choose. I like how a few little specks of embossing powder got on the cake layers, looking like crumbs. Can't make that happen if I tried. 

That's it from me today. Hope you are enjoying the countdown. All these treats and more can be found at at 10 PM EST on July15th. Just a few more days away.
