Poinsettia Christmas Cake

This was my first attempt at making a Poinsettia sugar flower. My original cake design had 3 flowers in varying sizes but even with a 12 inch size cake, having 3 of these large flowers would have never worked so clean and simple it would have to be. This cake went to my pastor for the holiday season.

I made each seperate center using sugar paste and pre-made stamens, dusted them with varying shades of green and red dusting powder I gathered them together in a bunch once dried.  I used powdered red color to get the darker red color, and once assembled i used shimmer dust both on the cake and the flower to get a little bit of shine.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope you enjoy!

OWH Sketches 150 & 151 - ODBD Dec. Challenge-Flowers

Still catching up on my OWH sketches. Fewww...almost there....I'm using this card as my submission for Our Daily Bread December challenge

For this sketch I used various leftover scraps from my scrapbooking. Most of my cards are made from page scraps. Although since the 6 x 6 tutorial I have invested in some pads and have begun to make some cards from those but as any paper crafter I have scraps galore!
I used Lili of the Valley stamp image Bunches of Flowers, Copic markers, Martha Stewart punch Vintage Floral, and a stamped image from Megan Elizabeth

Again, papers from my stash although I do recall the plaid paper from a DCWV boys paper pad I picked up at Michaels, the circle embellishments I picked up through Oriental Trading and I used royal blue embroidery floss.

OWH Sketches 148 & 149

Trying to cathc up oin my OWH sketches. I've fallen behind with all the holiday hub bub. So this weekend I've put on my mojo and got to work.

For this sketch I used DCWV paper, Floral Fantasy embossing folder by Cuttlebug and a tag from Martha Stewart I picked up at Staples. The sentiment is from Fiskers "Wedding" set.

For this sketch I used some arious papers from my stash and Bazzil card stock. The blue gem is a sparkle lite form Megan Elizabeth andf the ribbon is I believe the Michaels brand, Create it. I embossed the gray cardstock with Cuttlebug folder, Victoria. The sentiment is from Hampton Arts, Curly Alphabet

Jacob's 15th Birthday Cake and Card

My son really likes ninja and karate themes. When I made this card with images cut from the Cricut. I decided to use that for inspiration for the cake. I used the Wilton color mist for the camouflauge look and then cut images using Sports Mania, and Indie Art cartridges. My son calls himself Jacob Shadow Ninja and I recently found out his friends call him JSN for short so, with thinking down the line of an interesting Scrapbook page journal block, I just had to use the initials on his cake. This is the first time I made a matching card and cake and I can foresee I'll do it again.
