a few cards, a layout and a cake...yes another one!

i took another cake decorating class at Creations Gourmandes; this one was a Halloween themed cake shaped like a pumpkin. it was fun we learned how to carve a stacked cake into a pumpkin shape (which would also make a great x-mas ornement or with a straighter bottom - a great igloo, which i might just make during the holidays...i can already see little fondant penguins!) we worked with Almond paste instead of fondant, i think it's way yummier! isn't that little mouse the cutest! i am gonna enjoy eating his little almond paste butt!

Ok now onto the cards,

materials: cs: doodlebug
pp: Jillibean
chipboard: maya road
letters: carolee's creations
ribbon: ? i never remember these!
other: EK success border punch, stickles, pop-dots
cs: bazzill
pp, stickers: cosmo cricket
ribbon: ? again same ribbon, don't remember
stamp: impression obsession
ink: memento
other: copic markers, stickles, pop-dots, spellbinders nestabilities

And i just realized that i never posted the last mixer. it was a sketch challenge, you can see it here. Unfortunately Mel has decided to close MIU due to the lack of time to keep it up - it's totally understandable, she has a crazy busy life! but i do want to thank her for asking me to be a part of it since the beginning and doing the banners for the site, that was fun.

thanks for stopping by!

Bonjour Isabelle,merci pour ton beau commentaire et je peux te retourner le compliment parceque j'aime beaucoup tes créations. Pour répondre à ta question,non ce n'est pas une étampe,c'est une carte qui vient avec des découpes supplémentaires .Tu dois utilisés des collant 3D pour les coller (les découpes)pardessus la carte première.Ce qui fait le 3D.Tu n'as qu'à ajouter du flower soft et voilà c'est tout simple.Je n'ai pas grand mérite à part peut-être un peu de patience!!
