Designing with Melanie Muenchinger Week 3!

Hi, everyone!!! Here I am, week 3 designing for Melanie Muenchinger!

Today, I have a fun card I made using Cosmo Cricket's Cherry Pie designer paper line--isn't super cute?! For this card, I used the larger cake base from Melanie's "Candles on Your Cake" stamp set. I wanted to paper pierce the image, so I inked it up with clear embossing ink then cut along the the edge of the slighty visible image--worked perfectly! I was worried that I wouldn't be able to see the image but if you've worked with embossing ink before you know that it has a bit of a glossy look to it before it dries. For the candle I chose one of the larger of the candle images, the super cute, polka dotted one. :)

For the sentiment piece, I stamped one of Nina Brackett's Lovely Labels ( her polka dotted label) but cut out the center circle to use as the base for stamping the "make a wish" sentiment. In the middle of the cherries that I paper pierced from the DP, I placed those adorable little heart images. That little heart image and the sentiment are, of course, from Melanie's "Candles on Your Cake" set--she really has a way of including GOBS of super cute images in her sets!
