As soon as I saw this suite in the Spring/Summer catalogue I loved it. So many beautiful things! As well as the stamp set and dies – which are available as a bundle with 10% off – there are lots of other goodies in this suite.
I’ve used some of them on these cards. Two new embossing pastes, Shimmery White and Silver, together with one of the new Sweet Soirée decorative masks. And the flowers are from the new Sweet Soirée Embellishment kit.
The silver embossing paste which I used on the card with the cake is slightly more liquid than the embossing paste from the annual catalogue, and I found it took longer to dry. But it wasn’t a problem.
The cake and present I coloured using Blends pens, and added some Wink of Stella which you can’t see in the photos. I popped them up on dimensionals and in real life they do really stand out in front of the flowers which I glued to the card.
I used Pool Party card for the background because I thought the silver and shimmery white would look good on it, but other colours would look just as good I’m sure.
There’s no die for the present but it’s not difficult to fussy cut out. And that Shimmery White embossing paste really is very shimmery and beautiful, the photo doesn’t do it justice.
I didn’t use the absolutely beautiful Sweet Soirée DSP here, I’ll save that for another time!
