Wedding Week: Day 3

Its the 3rd day of Wedding Week at InStyle Stamps and the image we are previewing today is called "Couture Cake". Be sure to check in over at the ISS blog to see more samples of this gorgeous and funky image and also to check out the deets on Virginia's newest contests, giveaways and offers. She has a friend in the Wedding business that is being featured this week and you don't want to miss the special offers!

OK, have you ever TOTALLY finished a card that you almost love, then decide it needs one more thing, only to end up RUINING the whole card???? Arrgh! I wanted some shimmer or sparkle, Pulled out my new Vanilla Smooch spray which is NORMALLY not so clumpy and very light. And what do you know...clumps. HUGE wet gooey clumps EVERYWHERE.

Its still ok, but NOT what I intended. Hurumph. Anywho. I LOVE this image! I colored it with copics of course and then cut it out with Labels 10 Nestabilites. The sentiment is from my Favorite ever Verve set, "Anniversary Birds". Papers are by My Minds Eye. And we will not even MENTION the stupid smooch, right?

OK, I will have yet one more post today if you can believe it! Samples for class cards for this weekend! So check back!

Thanks for hanging with me today! -Cyndi

  1. Ok, I had to laugh. I totally ruined a cake card when I tried to add some Shimmerz Sprtiz -- I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has these misadventures! I think your card turned out great, though!!!

  3. I've done it too! LOL and I still used it. I was not going to create another card! Love the cake. They all remind me of the dreamy cakes I had at my wedding.

    You're card is just as delicious!
    (sorry, I spelled something wrong so I retyped it.)

  4. Cyndi, I think it turned out great!! So sparkly!! I usually mess things up when my card is almost finished!! And when Ihave put that much time in it, there is no way I'm going to redo it!! I think it adds to the sparkly elegant look to this card!!
