Bradon's 18th Bday

I made

I made this card for sons 18th birthday.  Like most of us with kids, I really don't understand where the years have gone.  I am very proud of him, he is a good kid, and pretty darn handsome too. 

I used the Cricut to cut out the star (George Font) , 18,(Ashlynn's Alphabet) and phrase (Sweet Treats) For the background i used the shaving cream technique. With SU colors: Pacific Point, Crumb Cake, & Chery Cobbler.  After cutting everything out, I adhered the 18 to the star, and used some iridescent ice from SU to make it all sparkle. I also threw some star brads on.

Happy Birthday WENDY!!!!

I racked my brain forever trying to think of cake I could do for my besties bday. I knew I wanted to make purple roses, from there I didn't have a clue. This is what I came up, I think it turned out pretty. I am a little rusty on my roses, I will have to do some practice.

Over the Hill Cake

Ok, this is the cake I made for my Nephew's 40th bday. His wife said she was doing an over the hill theme. I thought I have a tomb stone cake pan and the black roses would be perfect. 

The stone is made from fondant~ up close and in person, it looked like marble, pretty cool effect for a a tomb stone.  :)
The black roses are made from gum paste. 
You can see the marble effect better in the picture below. 
Photobucket Hope you have an excellent day, thanks for stopping by.

I love it when the client calls and gives you a general theme, then the creativity is up to you. I found a similar cake on google, and made my own rendition. I really enjoyed making this cake. My kids watched my every step, telling me how cool it was. That made me feel pretty good. I love how it turned out! If you would like to order a cake from me please let me know. Thanks!

Haha, the beginning of the horse!

40 Candles

So my nephew finally made it to 40, Well, actually bday is today!!!!! but, his wife threw him a surprise party over the week end. I was asked  to make the cake (which I will post later).  I wanted to make a 40 card, I don't think I ever have before.  I used the "Sweet Treats" cartridge to cut out the pieces for this card. I like it, because it's not too over the hill, but it's dark enough, he knows he's 40.

Anyway, his party was a lot of fun, and I got to play with my Cricut!!!! That makes any day better. Have a great day!!!!! Photobucket
