SSS Sketch Ranunculus Bouquets for Mom Cards

Hello there everyone!

Wishing you an early Happy Mother's Day to all my Mommy friends out there. Hope your weekend will be filled with lots of hugs and kisses from your loved ones!

Today I want to share with you the cards I made for my Mom and my MIL. 
Since I love flowers I figured my mom's would too! I used the SSS Sketch Ranunculus Stamp Set to create the bouquets.


For my coloring, I used the Zig Clean Color Brush markers.
No. 03, 25, 27, 29, 31, 41, 50, 52, 53, 80 and 81.
I love how easy these markers are to work with and blend!


The other stamp set I used for my cards comes from Mama Elephants - Labelled Messages.


I filmed a process video for these cards if you wanted to take a look on how they came together.
Links for the supplies I used are listed below and in the video description.

FREE - Forty Birthday Cake Topper SVG and Studio File


Hello and welcome back friends!

Last week I shared with you all a card I made for one of my best friends who recently turned 40. Well today I want to share not only the cake I made for her but I also want to give you the file for the cake topper I created in her honour... for FREE of course!

With limited time, I thought making a naked cake for her celebration would be the quickest and easiest... well I was kind of right. It was way quicker than making a fondant covered cake but not the easiest, as I had never done this before. I am truly and happy with the results and love the look of the fresh flowers, which was a first for me too!

The cake itself was half vanilla and half chocolate. 
Bottom layers chocolate, top vanilla.
I used 10 inch pans for bottom tier and 6 inch for the top tier.
The entire cake was covered with vanilla buttercream icing and finished it with a caramel syrup.

Doesn't it look Yummy!? 😋


As for the cake topper...

I designed the topper using the Silhouette Studio Software.
I cut out 3 layers of heavy 110 lbs white cardstock. 
Glued them back to back with a spray adhesive.
Cut out my glitter layer and adhered that one to the top. 
(I didn't have any gold glitter paper left, so I improvised and used a piece of Cricut Glitter Vinyl in gand adhered it to a piece of 60 lb cardstock and then cut it out... worked like a charm!)
I then used hot glue to secure a very thin wooden dowel to the back of the topper,
and that's it... fancy DIY topper all done!

For a visual how to click HERE← for a previous cake topper video. 
Also, check out the links below for products I used to make the topper.

Triple-Layer Cake Box Cards | SVGCuts

Hello friends! How are you? 
Seems like it's been a little while since my last post. Life just seems to get busier and busier every day!

I hadn't realized how long it had been since I had used my Silhouette to create some 3D papercrafts (my first love). So today I want to share with you a few box cards from SVGCuts Garden Party Box Cards SVG Kit that made for some very special ladies in my life.

I decided to make the same triple-layer cake box card for both of them since they were for birthdays. Plus, it was just quicker to do them both at the same time when most of the same supplies were being used. I did alter the file by increasing the size by approximately 25%.

My oldest friend on this planet, well more like a sister, turned the big 40 this past Tuesday 💗
I thought this triple-layer cake card was perfect for the occasion!

3D,80 years old,Sizzix Big Shot,Triple-layer box card,#SVGCuts,Silhouette Cameo,SVG Cuts file,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,40 years old,Paper cake,Birthday Card,

As you can see I added the numbers to the top of the cake. To make them, I used the SSS Big Number dies set and just cut the numbers out of metallic paper using my Big Shot. The rest of the card was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo. To finish the back of the card I used a stamp from MFT's Magical Unicorn stamp set. 


These cards always amaze me. 
I just love how they fold flat and fit nicely in an envelope!


Here are both the cards I made side by side. 
The card with 80 on top,  I made for my Grandmother who is celebrating her 80th birthday in a few weeks. Unfortunately, I won't be with her that day because she lives in Portugal, but my mother will be hand delivering it to her for me!


Since I went with silver for the previous card, I chose to do this one in gold. 
To the centers of the flowers, I added some tiny drops using the Dandelion Nuvo Crystal drops
To add some interest to the flower petals, I inked up all their edges with a coordinating distress ink pad. Check the links below for more details. 


3D,80 years old,Sizzix Big Shot,Triple-layer box card,#SVGCuts,Silhouette Cameo,SVG Cuts file,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,40 years old,Paper cake,Birthday Card,

Of course, I didn't have any Portuguese stamps to stamp on the back of the card so thankfully I had the Perfectly Penned stamp set from Concord and 9th to save the day!
Translated it means "80 Congratulations Grandma"


Hope you got some inspiration from my Triple-Layer Cake Box Card creations.
