January Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be involved in my first blog hop! You may have just come here from Erin's blog. This month's blog hop is focusing on the new Occasions Mini product and/or a thank you. My project uses the new Occasions Mini set Sweet Cake which I used for a thank you card:

The card base is chocolate chip with a layer of pretty in pink DSP from the pattern pack. The next chocolate chip and pretty in pink layers were cut using the new Framelits Labels Collection. The cupcake image is stamped on whisper white with chocolate chip ink. The stem of the cherry is wiped clean using a blender pen and then coloured with an old olive marker. This image is then trimmed out and popped up using dimensionals. The "You're So Sweet" saying is stamped using melon mambo. The cherry and heart are silver glimmer paper coloured with melon mambo reinker and an aqua painter. The icing on the cupcake has a beautiful shimmer thanks to the application of dazzling details. A pretty in pink button, white bakers twine and a thanks so much from the Tiny Tags set finishes off this card nicely.
