I am loving the new Piece of Cake stamp set and matching Cake Builder Punch.  These products will be available to purchase in January from the 2019 Occasions catalog. I'm happy to send you a copy .

Check out these projects and see 3 ways to make the icing on the cake shiny.

The icing on this first cake shines because the image is heat embossed.

  1. Ink the stamp in Versamark
    and then Ink in the color ink
  2. Stamp the image on colored paper
  3. Sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder
  4. Heat set
  5. Punch out (or cut)

For the 2nd card just look how the whole cake shines!

To achieve this look the cake was stamped and colored with markers and cut or punched out.  

Then I covered the whole thing with the glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen. The glue functions like a crystal lacquer. 

Of course you have to let it dry thoroughly before finishing the card . . . several hours at least. 

The shine on the last card comes from a combination of stamping the image on acetate and then layering over glimmer paper.

The background on this card has its own shine: it was stamped with the Marble Background Stamp and heat embossed with Clear Embossing powder. For the cake 
  • The image was stamped on Acetate (Window Sheet) in StazOn ink
  • The flowers were colored with Stampin'Blends (an alcohol marker)
  • The image was layered on top of white Glimmer Paper.

One thing I appreciate about being a Stampin'UP! demonstrator is the opportunity to play with new product before it hits the market.  I love it that my job is to play with ink and stamps.

Recently I've been having lots of fun making samples with the new Piece of Cake Stamp Set and coordinating Cake Builder Punch.

You are going to love this set - it works for so many different occasions: weddings and anniversaries, birthdays, retirement, showers - anything you want to celebrate.
