STAMPlorations July Release Blog Hop - World Birthday Cakes


Hello, and welcome to the STAMPlorations blog hop for the July stamp release!  Today we're showcasing my World Birthday Cakes set.  The idea started with the Leaning Cake Tower of Pisa - it always reminds me of a wobbly cake, so I thought I'd draw it as one, complete with candles on the top.  Then came Sydney Opera Cake, Eiffel Tower Cake and finally Chrysler Building Cake.  A few telex-style sentiments and there you have it.


I made my background with my 5x3 Gelli Plate, some ARTplorations stencils and a pattern tool for the wavy lines, then stamped the Sydney Opera Cake onto spare card, coloured and mounted it.

For some fabulous inspiration, check out what the rest of the team made here.  And of course there are prizes:

  • FIVE (5) commenters randomly drawn from the designers' blogs will each win the stamp set featured for the day.
  • ONE (1) commenter randomly drawn from the STAMPlorations blog will win a $25 gift certificate.
So don't forget to leave a comment at each stop!

LOVE this and the blue representing the water surrounding our lovely Sydney Opera House....I often go for a walk there and enjoy the harbour view, used to work near the opera house so it is a delightful icon to put on your gorgeous creation.xx {The Journey Is The Start  aNNie  my personal blog}
