Creation Station Happy New To You Blog Hop

Happy Sunday! Creation Station is bringing in the New Year with a New To You Blog Hop! This is sure to be an amazing hop as our Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalog is live! I can't wait for you to see what my amazing Creation Station friends have whipped up for you this month!!

I really can't get enough of the Amazing Life Bundle, if you follow me you will know that I used this fun bundle for a post on Friday. I decided to pair it up today with the Piece of Cake Bundle! Let me show you what I have created for you today!

Who doesn't love cake?! Okay maybe me, I mean I will eat cake but it really isn't something I can't live without! Growing up my mom often made me a giant pizza size chocolate chip cookie for my birthday. Enough about me lets talk about the card.

I have been using my Stamparatus A LOT lately!! This card was the perfect opportunity to show you that you can do the fun "Hinge Step" Technique with the "Yay!" stamp in the Amazing Life stamp set.  You can see a great video of how to do this technique below.

Once I achieved my desired pattern with my Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I then colored them with Stampin' Blends. The colors I chose were Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Highland Heather. You will see that I also colored the cake from the Piece of Cake stamp set the same colors so that it would coordinate. The cake stand also from the Piece of Cake Bundle, was stamped with Smoky Slate ink and then I snagged my light Smoky Slate marker to color it in. The punch for this bundle will punch the stand and the cake but for this project I just wanted the cake to pop! With my oh so colorful "Life's Too Short To Not Eat the Cake" sentiment, I used a nice stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to pop this sentiment and the cake. For a nice embellished finished I have used the stars from the Best Route Enamel Shapes and the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle!
