Cake Shoppe Sneak Peek

Hello!!! Today is a big day! We’re beginning the sneak peeks of the two newest releases from Mint Motif, Cake Shoppe and Cake Shoppe Too! And, we (being IHP/Chicken Girl) is proud to also be co-sponsoring this week’s Color Throwdown 100th post celebration along with tons of other past sponsors. So, my card today uses (some of) the CT colors for the challenge.

We are releasing two coordinating sets, although they can be used on their own – you just don’t get as many options. *grin* I paper pieced a 3 tier cake from Happy Day papers and stamped the polka dot overlay on them. I used Palette Belle Rose and Reflection Blue. The I trimmed the piped flowers and popped everything up on some Circle Nesties. I embossed another piece of Happy Day paper (it’s supposed to be the certainly celery color but it is a little more tan than green now that I look at it) using my A2 Polka Dot folder, layered the backside of some more Happy Day paper (can you tell I love this line???) on top and and then finished it off with a long vertical wrap of ivory faux suede ruffled ribbon and some Crystal Stickles on the flower centers.

I hope you play along with Color Throwdown this week. They’ve got tons of great prizes to give away. And I really hope you check out the rest of the Mint Motif design team to see their posts. Here are the links for you! Stop by and give them some love.
