introducing what the doodle: piece of cake + keep it simple: birthday III

Hi everyone and welcome to day 2 of the Papertrey Ink November release countdown. Today I am introducing the new What the Doodle: Piece of Cake and Keep it Simple: Birthday III sets.

What the Doodle: Piece of Cake is the newest to make its debut in the What the Doodle series. The set retails for $5 and there are coordinating dies available.

The slice of birthday cake is the focal point on all my cards today and I just love how you can use different techniques to make the cake look so unique on each project. That is one of my favorite things about stamping - the possibilities are endless!

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on November 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.

On this first card, I used the fancy detail die to cut out the slice of cake and candles and then embossed the stamped images onto them with white embossing powder. The "plate" that I set the cake onto is the scalloped circle die from the Make it Market Mini Kit: Holiday Hugs.

I added some large gold sequins behind each of the candle flames - I love how that looks. The script sentiment is from the new Keep it Simple: Birthday III set. I don't think you can have too many versions of the "happy birthday" sentiment to use on projects! Don't you just love that new card base and frame? You will hear more about that a little later on in the countdown over at Nichole's blog

For this piece of cake, I did a little masking with the candle, cake, and plate to put this image together. I colored the stamped image with my colored pencils and them blended them with Gamsol.

The white details are done with a white gel pen. The sentiment on this card is a part of the What the Doodle: Piece of Cake set.

And finally, this piece of cake is done using the emboss resist technique paired with a little watercolor. I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed the images with clear embossing powder onto some watercolor paper. I added the watercoloring with Clean Color markers and a water brush. I die cut the images with the basic cake and candle dies from the What the Doodle: Piece of Cake die collection.

I scattered some stars and sequins around the cake and the "happy birthday" sentiment that is from the new Keep it Simple: Birthday III set.
