Every Cake Should have a Few Layers

Today's card was completely inspired by a sample I had seen in the new catalog.  It's one of the great things about a Stampin' Up! catalog.  It's called and Idea Book for a reason.  This years catalog will impress you 1000x with the amazing samples inside.  Today, I used a stamp set that is in the current catalog and staying put! Along with that I used a few NEW colors along with some accessories that are retiring.

This stamp set is called On a Pedestal (113814).  Great set with many ways to use it.  I decided to get scissor happy and cut a lot of the layers out.  This gave the card lots of dimension.  I also used buttons and white linen thread to add accents.  The layered cake was matted and then placed on a Pink Pirouette cardstock layer that was run through my Big Shot using the Polka Dot embossing folder.  These add perfect texture to any project.  Lastly, I added a bit of Shimmer Mist to the card.  Lately, there isn't a card that doesn't get a little shimmer added. 

Now, for a move update.  Packers came yesterday.  The stamp room is officially packed.  However the lazy bums decided that TODAY they would not come and they would finish on Friday.  I think they made a big mistake.  I cannot see how they will finish packing this house tomorrow.  I will simply keep my big nose out of it and let them figure it all out themselves.  I hate not being in control.  My only concern is actually leaving when we originally wanted and not prolonging the pain of leaving this great place any more than I have to.  The kids think the whole process is great.  Thankfully I've had awesome friends take them for play dates and my kids think this is ONE heck of a summer vacation.  🙂 

I'll keep you updated.  I hope your FRIDAY is filled with stamping.  I think mine will be all about supervising.  I'm pretty good at that.  <sigh>

XOXOXO
