A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- February 2018 Wildflower Wishes
Stampin' Friends Blog Hop -- No Rules in March

OSAT Blog Hop -- Happily Ever After with Cake Soirée



Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to my stop on the One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop for the month of March!  This months theme is based on "Happily Ever After".  The first thing that comes to mind with this theme is a wedding or a wedding anniversary.  It appears that old man winter has decided to stick around for a while longer...major snow and blizzard storms rolling across the states the last few days.  Now, that is one event that I'm sure will not last to see 'Happily Ever After'...well, I'm hoping, anyway.  LOL!

This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from the OSAT designer. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful craftiness, click on the next person in line within the list of blogger's posted at the end.



I have had the Cake Soirée Bundle (stamp set and coordinating Sweet Cake Framelits) ever since the beginning of the Occasions catalog, but haven't ever finished a project using it.  GASP!!  Sooo, this month's theme was a way to force me to play, create and finish this beautiful card.  I'm sure I've shared this before, but I'm a country farm girl at heart, and this stamped and clear embossed cake was screaming to be displayed on some Wood Textured Designer Series Paper.



All of the colors are pulled from the flower ensemble nesting on top of the cake (Marina Mist, Berry Burst, Flirty Flamingo).  I love how Stampin' Up! created a coordinating Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit filled with floral punch outs, velum sprigs, velveteen scalloped trim, and a whole lot more.  The table die was cut from the Champagne Foil Paper offered in the Holiday 2017 catalog....I'm sooo happy that it carried over!  LOVE that foil paper!  The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and was Silver embossed onto a strip of Berry Burst cardstock.

Coordinating Cake Soirée Gift Tag

Now, you can't attend a wedding without the gift adorned with a coordinating tag, now can you?!!  The intricate tag die comes from the Sweet Cake Framelits dies set and is dressed up using the same papers as the card...Wood Textured Designer Series Paper, Champagne Foil Paper and Berry Burst cardstock.  The single flower is another punch out from the Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit and was popped up on a Marina Mist Layering Scallop Circle die. 




The Cake Soirée Bundle can be found on the Page 12 of the Occasions catalog and with this purchase you would be to choose one FREE Sale-A-Bration reward!  This bundle is perfect for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Retirement, or any celebration, really. You'll have to check out all of the other coordinating products in this suite...Embossing Folder, Gable Boxes, Ribbons, etc.


Sale-A-Bration is under way and is, by far, the “most wonderful time of the year,” and not just because of the holidays.  Have you received your copy of the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs?  If not, you need them!

Need an idea?  Start with my Cake Soirée card and Gift Tag projects:


For every $50 you spend, you’ll receive a free Sale-A-Bration product. For anyone who has enjoyed Sale-A-Bration in the past, there is a new reward level, giving you more flexibility and options for your free items.

Let’s break it down:

  • If you spend $50, you get one free level 1 product.
  • If you spend $100, you get one free level 2 product, OR, you can choose two level 1 items.
  • If you spend $150, you have the option to choose three level 1 items or one level 1 item and one level 2 item.

This new option allows everyone to create a personalized Sale-A-Bration experience!  **squeal**

All of the fine details about Sale-A-Bration can be found HERE
