More Icing on the Cake!

Hello and welcome to some more card making fun using the Icing on the Cake stamps.  Initially, this stamp set had passed me by and I hadn't even put it on my wish list.  A happy opportunity came about and I was able to experiment with it a little, and then I was hooked.  Now I have my own stamp set I have thoroughly enjoyed exploring the possibilities with it.  I have made cards suitable for male and female birthdays and also some congratulations cards too.

To start with I made a simple border from piped icing - the longest border stamp lends itself to US 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" sized cards, so I worked with inches throughout.  This is a little out of my comfort zone as I usually work in centimetres!  It was worth persevering with for the end result though.  

The Whisper White layers I have stamped on measure 5 1/8" x 3 7/8/" and 3 5/8" x2 3/8".  As the stamps are photopolymer it is straightforward to build up a pattern of sugary icing in an array of delicious colours.

I'm happy with the initial design, but the stamp set also contains some gorgeous flowers and balloons that I wanted to include on my cards.  Using them, together with the Wink of Stella glitter, has really enhanced my basic card design and the fussy cutting was easy too.

Which do you prefer?  Bold and basic or with flowers or balloons?
